Irony overload was foaming out of the top of UKIP Towers today after a letter was sent to Sussex Police demanding the arrest of anyone who calls them fascist.
The ever so not fascist, Janice Atkinson faces ridicule.
The letter signed by UKIP's chairman for the south east, Janice Atkinson, and MEP candidates, Patricia Culligan and Alan Stevens, demanded that protesters at their meeting in Hove this evening should be arrested and charged with hate crimes, should they have the tenacity to call them fascist.
The latest attempt at getting the police to do their dirty work comes after officers from Cambridgeshire Constabulary turned up at the home of a Twitter user who had debunked a UKIP candidate's lies.
Their heavy-handed actions were condemned by civil rights campaigners and politicians from across the political spectrum.
Of course, we at EDL News believe Atkinson's attempts to stifle legitimate protest, are indeed the very essence of fascism. We await our arrests.
Just a quick matter of note for Janice, who seems to be getting ideas above her station, UKIP are not the third party by any stretch of the imagination. UKIP have zero MPs.
