anyone who believes that Ukip’s leader in Scotland David Coburn is anything other than an ill mannered, odious, ignorant boer can readily disabuse themselves by accessing his interview on TV on the night of the Scottish devolution vote.

On that night David Coburn made a fool of himself and Ukip with his ill informed bullying and abusive comments, judging by his florid and sweating appearance alcohol fueled in a manner that brought Ukip into disrepute.

At the time, although David Coburn had been elected as Ukip’s MEP in Scotland, based on the votes obtained by Ukip in Scotland rather than any personal support, David Coburn boasted of being domicile in London and had no home or residency in Scotland.

Ukip politician David Coburn has been indefinitely banned from Wikipedia after attempting to alter an article about himself 69 times in six days.

The ‘David Coburn MEP’ user account was blocked by an administrator at the online encyclopedia last month after repeatedly trying to make edits to the website’s article on Coburn, who has a reputation for making controversial comments.

Coburn, the Ukip MEP for Scotland, told the Guardian he had directed one of his staff to make the changes in order to clear the page of “garbage” and “nonsense”.

“David Coburn MEP” began altering the page on 1 April this year, removing a passage stating that Coburn had allegedly muddled the name of SNP candidate Tasmina Ahmed Sheikh repeatedly during the 2014 European parliament campaign.

Sheikh had accused Coburn of calling her “Pashmina, Jasmine and Tamzin before eventually settling on a combination of ‘love’, ‘dear’ and ‘honey’,” and that she had found the remarks to be sexist and possibly racist. At the time, Ukip’s Scottish chairman denied Coburn had repeatedly mispronounced Sheikh’s name, saying he had only mispronounced it once. Coburn told the Guardian that Sheikh’s allegation was “nonsense”.

Three minutes after Coburn removed the passage it was reinserted by another user. One minute later, Coburn removed it again.

These were the first of dozens of changes over the following six days encompassing a number of factual disputes, including whether Coburn lived in Edinburgh or London, whether he attended the High School of Glasgow or a high school in Glasgow, and whether he had said ever stated he would “work closely with the so-called London elite” (Coburn says he did not). He also repeatedly tried to add a statement that there was “no material difference” between civil partnerships and gay marriage to his article.

The MEP’s edits were interpreted by other users as breaching one of the site’s rules on conflicts of interest, defined as when users alter articles to make them more favourable to themselves.

Wikipedia also prohibits users from engaging in “edit wars”, in which different users repeatedly delete each other’s contributions. During one particularly intense dispute, Coburn was accused by another user of getting into an edit war with himself and repeatedly deleting his own changes.

Coburn left a number of notes on the website complaining that other users were disregarding his own account of his life.

“I am David Coburn MEP – I am aware of where I live – I live in Edinburgh – I am also aware of where I went to school & which University I attended – there are several people changing the facts and they need to stop,” he wrote.

He later added: “Apparently I dont know where I live nor which school I attended or the University I attended – is there anything else you would like to update me on?” and suggested he would complain to Wikipedia about people editing his article maliciously.

The account was first blocked for a limit of 31 hours (“after many, many warnings” according to one administrator) but later blocked indefinitely.

When contacted by the Guardian, Coburn said he had started editing the page after spotting mistakes on it, but that he had stopped after getting bored.

“I hear it gets changed all the time. Personally I don’t give a damn what people write about me. People write the most colourful things about me and I’ve got the hide of a rhino and I don’t really give a damn,” he said.

“I’m sure its all wee cybernats who’ve got nothing better to do with their time and they should actually be out getting a job.”

Asked if he had followed through on his threat to complain, Coburn replied: “Did we complain in the end? Did I bother? I can’t remember. I don’t think we could be bothered. I think I’ve got too much on my plate. It’s one of those things I meant to do and never bothered.”

Asked about specific changes, he said that it was a month ago and he did not remember the details of what was changed.

“It was done by one of my people. I don’t know how to press the buttons to make it work. I was telling them what to do. If there was garbage on there I told them to take it off,” he said.

IF you are in any doubt of the unpleasant nature of David Coburn and Ukip’s contempt for Scotland in appointing him as their leader in Scotland consider this series of informed Tweets:

Folded Towel XCI retweeted David Coburn MEP

UKIP Scotland leader can’t even spell the name of the town where he crashed the hustings.

Folded Towel XCI added,

The UKIP candidate has now told me it wasn’t Misty Thackeray, but his partner.

I know that many other Scottish members of UKIP are very displeased. One told me that Coburn and Thackery are “both massive dickheads”

Let’s be clear, East Lothian UKIP candidate was embarrassed by Coburn + Thackery’s actions. He had to tell them to calm down.

There isn’t a truer face of UKIP. Nasty bullies. They showed nothing but contempt to the candidates, the audience and the organiser.

The top brass of UKIP’s Scottish branch showed up to a church-organised, constituency hustings and behaved like noxious bullies.

It was a personal highlight to tell David Coburn and Thackery etc to “shut up” in front of a room full of people.

Just to make clear, David Coburn wasn’t a candidate at the Hustings. He positioned himself in the audience from where he heckled.

I’ve just admonished Coburn and Thackery, after yet another outburst, with “you don’t even live here [in East Lothian]”.

Incumbent Labour candidate Fiona O’Donnell says she is against Trident (opposing party policy). Calls for sanctions on Israeli settlements.

Even the UKIP candidate is now trying to get David Coburn and Thackery etc to calm down and be quiet.

Coburn and Thackeray just accused SNP candidate of “promoting” the rise of ISIS. Outbursts are getting wackier.

Coburn and the UKIP bunch are again targeting the Green candidate with outbursts. Room responds with biggest round of applause yet.

Tory candidate talking a lot of sense about the mess Britain has helped to create in the Middle East.

After I told David Coburn and co to “just shut up” they’ve been conspicuously quiet whilst the candidates are speaking.

After I refused Misty Thackery’s demand to move seats, he has now decided to move seats himself and is furiously reading my tweets.

The UKIP candidate has just said that the NHS should be modeled on the Israeli system, where he visited last year.

Thackery has just engaged me in a staring contest. I think I won. Intimidation isn’t going to work on me.

Thackery and Coburn again rudely guffawing whilst Green candidate is speaking. Told by audience member to shut up and show respect.

. nope, I can still taste the alcohol from his breath.

I don’t think I’m going to get that interview with Coburn for my blog now. Ruined my chances.

I’ve just been told by Misty Thackery, David Coburn’s aide, to “go sit somewhere else” because he’s read my tweets.

David Coburn MEP is loudly laughing and guffawing whilst SNP, Green and Labour candidates are talking. Typical.

David Coburn openly and rudely laughing as Green candidate states that people like elected Green politicians such as + Lucas.

“If I’m elected to Westminster next week… I won’t be that MP drinking in the Commons’ bars.” – UKIP candidate.

The UKIP candidate is now giving his opening statement. Young lad who grew up locally. Talking about pride of East Lothian voting no.

David Coburn MEP just told me directly that they are “confident” that he will be elected in Falkirk. The polls are “lying” he claims.

David Coburn MEP (UKIP) is sitting two rows in front. He shook my hand (I was too polite to decline, sorry )

I’m at the East Lothian hustings. I’m the only non-white person in the room and I’m sitting right behind the UKIP lot.

Final East Lothian hustings tonight. Northesk Parish Church, Bridge Street, Musselburgh at 7pm. All candidates will be present.

My own Tweets may also enhance your understanding of the style and behaviour of David Coburn and Ukip:

‘s leader is habitually an ill mannered ignorant oaff – little wonder he’s a !

didn’t ‘act like a noxious bully’ ‘s ‘Scotland leader IS a both ‘Noxious & a ‘Bully’ A VILE CREEP

Greg_Lance-Watkins added,

David Coburn’s performance as an MEP in the EU is relatively mediocre rating 45th out of the British MEPs and 124th out of the 751 MEP total!

It is my opinion that the crass and boorish behaviour of David Coburn since his election as an MEP and leader of Ukip in Scotland has done more harm to Ukip, particularly in Scotland than even his predecessors such as Christopher Monkton ever did or even that done by the outspoken Zionist based racism of Malcolm Lord Pearson or the superstition based racism of Gerard Batten!
