UKIP burn picture of Brian Paddick in Soho

Pink News reports that UKIP supporters burnt a picture of Liberal Democrat mayoral candidate Brian Paddick in Soho this afternoon.

How did they find out? Because UKIP press officer Gawain Towler tweeted the picture.

If you look at his Twitter feed, Towler’s attitude undergoes a significant shift.

From justifiying the photo at 3:46 pm

to saying it was all a big mistake and he hadn’t seen the lighter just 43 minutes later.

That might just be plausible if he hadn’t captioned the original photograph “Campaign on fire in Soho.”

When I put that to him, his reply was “Yes, thinking “Oh, it’s going well”

I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions about that one.

  • Did UKIP have that charming Dr woman who is one of their candidates in Oxford there by any chance?
