Leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) Henry Bolton marched with Northern Ireland veterans and their supporters in London on Saturday, demanding recognition and justice for soldiers killed by IRA bombings during the Troubles. «I served in Ireland 1970, 71, 72 and 74, and I'm here for justice. Not only for us. But for people that we left over there or that died over there that belong to us,» said one of the veterans, named Peter Rainer. The march took place in reaction to an ongoing government investigation into the conduct of soldiers stationed in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. According to the organisers of the march, the prosecution of former soldiers is an «unfair witch-hunt.»
