UKIP Block in Disabled Parker After Suspecting Dirty Tricks

UKIP campaigners suspected foul play in Newark this morning when a driver parked a car two feet from their stall in the market place. In their paranoia, how did they respond to what must have been dirty tricks? They sandwiched “Vote UKIP” signs around the offending vehicle:

Which made for an awkward scene after accusing the Tories of parking there, only to find it was a disabled driver trying to get the shops:

    Roland Deschain says:

    And, no doubt, removed them when the driver came back. Or was there no-one manning the stall?

    As a matter of interest, for how long was the driver “blocked in” by these sturdy-looking signs?

    I thought a suit. But Spads reminded me of those pictures of Gordon sitting in his suit on the beach making sandcastles..Looked a real weirdo.

    I was thinking maybe military style sand coloured vest, Military shorts, khaki hi-tops and a backpack?

    What do you think? Or does anyone know what Obama is wearing? Basketball top, I bet!

    And what makes everyone think that a disabled driver couldn’t possibly be a Conservative? Those badges are 10 a penny, signed off by compliant doctors, and it is not unknown for them to be “borrowed” by friends and family who want a quick trip to the shops without paying for parking.

    ‘The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, who were sat nearest to the boy, showed concern as help was called to assist him and he was carried out of the chamber.’

    gosh – that was big of them – and they allowed the rest of us to know it?

    WoRaft Chihuahua says:

    That photo is taken on the corner of Stodman Street (at the side of the Nat West bank on the Market Place ) and there is a small yellow sign indicating it is a pedestrian zone at all times, although other photos clearly show that lorries and market traders have to use it to set up. Did UKIP refuse to move the signs when the person came back?

    The council confirmed last year that there is no parking on the market place. Unless you are a traveller, in which case you can have a car park exclusively for your own use.

    Pretty lame stuff from the mop haired fop again?

  31. 31

    At the risk of being monstered, why would the driver park right up next to the UKIP stall in the first place? Guilt by association and all that…

    Begging for an egging?

    Yeah it was some Labour-supporter employed by the local council I bet. After all, very few disabled parking permits are actually used by genuinely disabled people – you only have to stand around and observe who uses the disabled bays in your local supermarket car park to see that.
    Disabled stickers are mostly just perks for local government officials and their friends and family.

    A disabled parking sticker usually means you are employed by the local council or you are friend or family of someone who is.
    You only have to look at the people who typically leap athletically out of cars showing disabled parking stickers to realise that the system is effectively unpoliced and wide-open to abuse, and is in fact being abused to the detriment of the rest of us.

    It’s the People’s Army not the Disabled People’s Army. They’ll be allowing pigs to be disabled next! The NHS should fund cures for theses “disabled” people.

    About 60 years ago, one of the kids in school fainted during morning assembly. The big slimy Scotch git who taught us maths rushed halfway down the hall, picked the lad up, threw him over his shoulder and began to carry him out – at which point the lad was violently sick all down the back of Big Jock’s tweed jacket.

    Oh how we laughed at playtime. Served the Hunt right as he was the most unpopular teacher in the school by several miles.

    I am disabled. I have tiny stumps so I cannot use prosthetics. My carer can drive and parks the car in disabled parking spaces and leaps out of the car to get my wheelchair out of the boot. You are right, the Blue Badge scheme needs radical overhauling.

    It was a setup.

    Then took a pic of his own badge then drove off.
    How can you block a driver in with a card?

    The alleged exposure of Gill is akin to Millipede’s sanctimonious tripe in Parliament yesterday, when he condemned zero hours contracts, currently dozens of labour MP’s (and yes, probably, con/libdem MPs too) employ staff on a zero hours basis.

Just because they spent their whole lives paying tax and national insurance these loafers somehow get the idea that when they are too old or broken to work anymore that WE, the non tax paying, bonus receiving, screw the rest of you, rich, should somehow subsidise and prop them up by paying for their food, housing and even, by God, HOSPITAL TREATMENT!! Bloody leeches!
