Protesters in Glasgow disrupted a meeting with racist Ukip leader Nigel Farage on Friday of last week.

Farage was at a pro-Brexit rally at Glasgow University with Tory MP Liam Fox.

Activists from the Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees, Stand Up to Ukip and others joined the protest.

Ukip faced yet another scandal as it launched its election campaign in Scotland.

Pictures emerged of former candidate Jack Neill with a blacked up face. He said it was “a joke” and “something that one does in their spare time”.

Meanwhile a far right MEP has said she will join the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) group, led by Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

Beatrix von Storch from the far right Alternative for Germany party has called for shooting refugees.

She said the EFDD was a “suitable political environment” for her.
