UKIP leader Paul Nuttall’s ability to attract the country’s more colourful far right activists continues to hit his Stoke by-election campaign.

Last week the national press caught up with HOPE Not Hate’s blog of last May to report how Nuttall had posed with violent EDL criminal Andrew Edge. Regular readers will not be surprised to hear that, despite UKIP’s official stand rejecting members of far right groups, this was not an isolated incident.

Mr. Nuttall is pictured above with infamous Bolton racist Wayne Riley. Riley, a regular on far right protests is also well-known for abusing Asian residents in the Lancashire town. He also has a conviction for using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress on election day in 2015. Such is the volatility of his temperament that he had to be removed from court when the case was heard.

A man of conviction.

A man of conviction.

Riley also attended the anti-mosque demonstration in Bolton last November at which members of the now proscribed National Action threw Nazi salutes. Their actions overshadowed his own bizarre attention-grabbing stunt of dressing up in a niqab whilst swaddling his pooch in union flag jacket.

No respecter of the law, the following month he used his Facebook page to promote his own illegal mini-cab service.

Before January was out he also used Facebook to proudly post a video of himself childishly abusing some local Asian men. Over on YouTube he ranted "I will fight these Islamic retards until I die."

It turns out Riley is quite the UKIP fan having also previously grabbed photo opportunities with former leader Nigel Farage. I wonder what it is about the party that attracts suich types?
