Their posters displayed the words “Migrants and refugees welcome here” and also “fight against Islamophobia.”

Security guards tried to separate the groups of activists as they were shouting about “Islamophobia.”

The protestors said to Nuttall that he wrong to say that migrants are the ones who are responsible to unemployment in the UK.

A woman who was wearing a hijab had claimed that a Muslim woman that was in the room had been asked to leave.

The protestors are thought to be from Stand up to racism group and they spoke with journalists and film crews once they were evicted from the hotel.

Paul Nuttall Ukip’s leader was to officially launch their manifesto however, with all the commotion that took place Nuttall eventually took to the podium to deliver his speech. During his speech, he accused the prime minister, Theresa May of “flagrant opportunism” for calling the snap general election on 8 June.

Nuttall said: “I believe we have to see this through to the end, we are only half way through the war.”
