Farage Confirms Guido Eastleigh Rumours

Following on from Guido’s story earlier in the week that Nigel Farage could stand in a potential by-election in Eastleigh, the UKIP leader has dropped a huge hint that he would be interested in Chris Huhne’s seat:

I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen with Chris Huhne’s case but if Chris is found not to have told the truth then it is clear that his position as MP for this town will be untenable. So we face the prospect perhaps of an Eastleigh by-election – it could happen in October or November this year, perhaps spring next year but be assured if and when there is an election we will give it everything we have got.

You heard it here first…

        Farage is also a thieving bastard as he takes the European shilling [£100k+] knowing that he will not do any of the work he is paid to do.

        As said somewhere else; he takes the gravy as he spits in the soup.

          . . . think you’ll find that Farage is one of the few MEP’s that regularly attend Council in order to challenge the van Rumpoy’s and Barroso’s and their troughing. That his efforts rarely get reported in the UK is down to pro-European: most notably the BBC that also has an vastly excessive number of journos/editors/producers/directors on the EU gravy-train.
          YOu can check Farage’s EU activity on You Tube – its worth viewing as his speeches frequently cause a stir – ridiculing the gargantuan carve-up causes mirth among the sincere guys and squirming embarrassment among the so-called EU leadership. . . . and no I’m not particularly a Farage fan – but in the interesets of balance and fairness its important to get the story straight don’t you think?

          What are you to do when wanting to make a point in a forum you think should not control your country? Should the SNP, Plaid Cymru, the SDLP be like Sinn Fein and refuse to take their seats? Should they simply refuse to stand?
          If you are in politics and sincere it’s because you wouldn’t start from where you are: you want things to change.

      Crash test dummy Farage won’t stand, as he will lose and make his position as leader of the kippered pygmies even more untenable.

      Oh, and he still hasn’t published his expenses…

      If I was resident in Eastleigh then I would vote for Farage based on 3 points.
      He has more guts than most of the MP’s; it would be another loss to the Limp Dims; would give both Conservatives and Labour a kick up the arse.
      Probably if he gets it then he will be bullied and ostracized as most of the few independent MP’s have in the Westminster brothel.
      He could make himself a darling of the BBC much like that motormouth Lucas of the Green Party, but even she had enough of them.

      LABOUR are considering plans to slap an extra tax on fizzy drinks in a bid to tackle Britain’s obesity crisis.

      Shadow public health minister Diane Abbott floated the idea to the party’s policy review after studying similar initiatives abroad.

      But horrified shadow cabinet members have warned the scheme could become “Labour’s Pasty Tax” as it would increase the cost of popular drinks like Coke and Tango.

      A spokesman for Ms Abbott confirmed she was exploring the policy.
