Farage pub protest: Dan Glass and Patrick O'Flynn

One of the protesters who targeted the UKIP leader having Sunday lunch in a pub claimed "our target was never Nigel Farage's family"

Dan Glass from Stand Up to UKIP said it was not a protest, "but a celebration of diversity".

UKIP MEP Patrick Flynn said Mr Glass and the protesters were "pretty reprehensible and sickening".

He said UKIP had received four million votes at the ballot boxes, and protesters should consider standing for election if they had so much support for their ideas.

The pair spoke to Jo Coburn on Monday's Daily Politics, 24 hours after the incident in Downe, south London, where the party leader described those who took part as "scum".
