  • Members of Reform Club in London’s Pall Mall are demanding UKIP ban
  • It follows a ‘drunken fracas’ which saw two guests ‘restrained by staff’
  • The ‘chaos’ is believed to have occurred when Nigel Farage arrived at club
  • Reform spokesman said: ‘The club does not comment on its own affairs’

The incident reportedly occurred at the Reform Club in London’s Pall Mall – whose members include Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – after the first TV debate with the Lib Dem leader last month. UKIP’s Michael Corby had hired a room for fellow party members to enjoy a live broadcast of the encounter.

Club members say there was ‘chaos’ when two guests had to be restrained by club officials when Mr Farage arrived at 10pm. ‘There was lots of screaming and shouting and liberal use of the f-word,’ said a peer who witnessed the fracas.

‘We simply do not tolerate that sort of thing.’

There is no suggestion Mr Corby was involved in any alleged misconduct. A Reform Club spokesman said: ‘The club does not comment on its own affairs’. From The Mail on Sunday . 0

Liveraf Comment. In 1936, a party of unemployed workers marched from Jarrow, Co. Durham to Westminster in London, to try and persuade parliament to take action over the mass unemployment and poverty which had been their lot since the start of the great depression. As they paraded past the Reform Club, its elegantly bred members stood on the steps and pelted them with bread rolls. It sounds as though the manners of some of the pigs who infest such places have not improved one jot since.
