tomcatty: On an overcast day in late July Nigel Farage, the eurosceptic, anti-immigration leader of the Brexit party, tried and failed to stay at a hotel in Worcestershire.Here's the man behind immigrants in this country. He has a reputation for it and is making money hand over fist all over the country.
“I tried to book a room at the 4 Star Bromsgrove Hotel & Spa, but it was closed to the public”, he wrote on Twitter.
“Turns out it’s accommodating 147 illegal migrants and we’re all paying for it.”
In an accompanying 10 minute video Mr Farage could be seen travelling to the site on the alleged urging of local residents, while making a number of claims about the state of immigration in the UK.
But does his central allegation – that the UK taxpayer is footing a multi-billion pound bill to put up “illegal migrants” in four star hotels – hold up to scrutiny?
None of them are "illegal" and he also employs immigrants in his Hotels as in Bournemouth where he owns quite a few .
