Nigel Farage's Common Sense Tour packs out Worcester Guildhall

Nigel Farage's "Common Sense" tour of England is under way and he's being met with packed venues wherever he goes.

I went to the public meeting at Worcester Guildhall last night and not only was it standing room only in the hall (which has a capacity of 200 people) but about 40 people had to sit or stand outside in the lobby and listen to his speech over the PA.

There were, naturally, a number of local UKIPpers there but there were also a large number of non-members who had just gone along to see what UKIP and Nigel Farage were like.  With the exception of the one strange man who heckled Nigel and later admitted to me that he'd only gone there to cause trouble, Nigel's speech was met with universal approval and rapturous applause.
