You may be surprised to learn that Vox Political does not support any alleged violence that may have taken place during the protest outside the new UKIP store in Penarth.

This blog condemned the destruction of a Labour street stall by a gang claiming they were UKIP, and it would be hypocritical to show a different attitude here.

Political movements are not defeated by violence. Brutality sends them underground and helps them gain support. If UKIP is to be defeated, it must be defeated by the use of reason, and the exercise of democracy.

Here’s the Wales Online version of events:

There were heated scenes as protesters staged a demonstration outside a newly-opened UK Independence Party shop and cafe.

Around 30 people gathered outside the shop on Glebe Street in Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The Cardiff South and Penarth constituency, which has been held by Labour for decades, is said to be one of Ukip’s target seats.

Members of Ukip and protesters exchanged frank views in the doorway to the shop.

Posting on Twitter, one of the organisers of the protest, deputy leader of the Green Party in Wales, Anthony Slaughter said: “Good turnout for @standuptoUKIP picket of UKIP Penarth shop. Strong support from passing public.”

The Green Party – supporting violent protest? What next…

      … In your opinion. Will you be providing examples? Otherwise, your claims are unfounded and potentially libellous.

    No mention of violence. A couple of other Green organisations do condone “direct action”, the Green Party don’t support direct action, violent or not.

    No Political Party (not even the Tories) can be held responsible for the actions of individual members; it is only the action they take afterwards the Party can control.

    Every Party has members that feel this behaviour is the only way.
