‘Labour leader Ed Miliband was today hounded out of an Edinburgh shopping centre as a campaign walkabout became overrun by protesters.
He was repeatedly branded a ‘f***ing liar’ by Yes campaigners who drowned out his supporters with cries of ‘bow down to your imperial master.
Mr Miliband pleaded for a ‘civilised’ debate with two days of campaigning left before the referendum, before being rushed out of the door by his aides, who were left ‘visibly shaken’ by the incident.
At one point he became trapped outside a hairdressers called ‘Supercuts’, leading opponents to chant: ‘Vote No for Supercuts, vote No for permanent austerity’.
Mr Miliband had been due to appear at St James Shopping Centre in Edinburgh at 3.15pm, but arrived almost 45 minutes late.
With Yes protesters outside chanting ‘we don’t need your f***ing union’ and ‘how many spare bedrooms has the Queen got?’, Labour aides decided to stage the event inside the shopping centre.’
