Five people have been arrested in a protest outside a Melbourne hotel against a speaking tour by the conservative UK politician Nigel Farage.
About 200 demonstrators gathered outside the Sofitel on Collins Street on Friday night, where the former Ukip leader gave his last speech of a five-day Australian tour.
Five people were arrested, one for criminal damage, another for riotous behaviour and a third for covering their face and assaulting police. Two others, a man and a woman, were arrested for unrelated outstanding matters, police said.
Mr. Farage is hardly alone in his opinion. The 17.4 million (and growing, as a new poll shows a 15% increase in those wanting Brexit) who voted to LEAVE the EU have been furious in recent days over her deal to sign us up for the EU, just with limited power and more regulation, but pretending it is still Brexit.
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has questioned the ‘judgement’ of his successor Gerard Batten over his support for the imprisoned ex-EDL leader Tommy Robinson, who was recently convicted for contempt of court.
Farage, who was speaking at a dinner for UKIP activists in Lancashire this month, did not openly criticize Batten, but told the assembled faithful that being seen as opposing all Muslims and supporting Robinson was a political mistake, reports the Guardian.
This isn’t a change for Farage he was always an appeaser.
Nigel Farage says while Russia is accused of funding Britain’s ‘Leave’ campaign, financier George Soros’ recent $18 billion donation to pro-EU charity Open Society has escaped scrutiny. “This is where the real international political collusion is,” Farage says.
The former Ukip leader told the BBC’s The World Tonight that Britain started to slide down a slippery slope by diluting what people voted for in the EU referendum.
Mr Farage has not been accused of any wrongdoing and is not a suspect in the investigation.

A self-described “leading” Muslim group is fundraising on the back of “jihad” in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, using pictures of President Donald Trump, Brexit leader Nigel Farage, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, and UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on its material.
Many former Donald Trump supporters have turned on the president after his decision to retaliate against the Assad regime for its chemical weapons attack.
Nigel Farage, Milo Yiannopoulos, Katie Hopkins, Right-wing vlogger Paul Joseph Watson, Ukip leader Paul Nuttall and Ukip donor Arron Banks are among the Trump supporters who have been disappointed by their hero.
Mr Farage said: “I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying ‘where will it all end?’
Always eloquent, Britain’s Nigel Farage offers his views on the current state of leftist delirium — pointing out how the younger generation have been hijacked by an agenda rich education system, indoctrinating them to not only espouse a certain ideology, but to become intolerant to opposing viewpoints. By definition, they’ve become the very thing they’re working so terribly hard to defeat: god damned fascists.
The former Ukip leader defended President Trump’s policy despite it coming under fire from politicians this morning and said Britain also needed to bring in “extreme vetting”.
The former Ukip leader declared the German Chancellor had made the “worst policy decision” in the last 70 years when she openly welcomed almost a million asylum seekers into the country in 2015.
The MEP, who steps down from his party leadership role on Monday, has told friends emigrating to the States to start a new life would make him ‘freer’.
