Frustrated Farage

Rumours might be swirling around UKIP circles that he could be set to stand in Chris Huhne’s potentially up-for-grabs seat in Eastleigh, but Nigel Farage has today insisted he “could not care less” who wins the next general election. The Barroso-bashing eurosceptic lambasted the Tories as “virtually indistinguishable” from the other parties, going on to lament:

The penny is beginning to drop with the British people and British businesses that we are no longer a self-governing nation. That matters far more than which brand of social democracy gets in. It no longer matters who sits in No 10. We are not governed from Westminster, we are governed from Brussels. It does not make any difference.

Just when Guido was thinking it was time for Farage to head home…

          By Leo McKinstry

          “THE European Union increasingly resembles a gigantic extortion racket. Through a mixture of bullying, threats and deceit, Brussels forces us to underwrite its rotten empire.

          Yet in return for handing over vast amounts of money, we receive nothing but grief as the EU systematically
          destroys our nationhood and wrecks our economy.

          In the madhouse of European politics, we are effectively compelled to pay for our national demise.

          The full extent of the EU’s cash grab has been revealed in new official statistics that show that Britain’s gross contribution to the coffers of Brussels reached an incredible £19.2billion last year.

          That amounts to £53million every single day.

          Even the most brutal foreign occupiers in our history, like the Vikings with their Danegeld tax, never extracted so much from the British people.”

    Not one of them listens to our point of view
    They’d sooner give our cash to the EU
    So lets kick them out and try something new
    We can’t afford this lot remaining
    Political rethink is long overdue
    For the times they are a changing

    They lied about Lisbon and promised a vote
    There all Europhiles and in the same boat
    Their treachery just bring a lump to my throat
    As each other they just keep blaming
    So send them a message and let them take note
    That the times they are a changing

    We will no longer tolerate lies being told
    Tax breaks for the rich but more tax for the old
    Ruled from the EU and our birthrights sold
    They ignore us when we are complaining
    If we all vote UKIP there out in the cold
    For the times they all need changing

        All that “on about the war” and “wet dishcloth” stuff is idiotic grandstanding. He’d do everyone more favours if he cut it out and made either more sensible points, or the same points without the wierd bullshit.

        But then, he’d not be as much of a hero to people who already support him. At least its not dog-whistle politics.

        I’m sure that will annoy and get a response. its not trolling, but some of what he is up to is, and he will be dismissed as such. If he was more like an angry Dan Hannan, and less like Basil Fawlty, the debate would be richer, and more people would listen to him.

    Farage is probably right but UKIP are not taken seriously enough to launch a serious challenge at the next election and are largely seen as a one issue joke!

    The Coalition is most certain to end at the next election, if not before, and Labour will be voted in with a large majority by sheeple not understanding what is happening! 5 years will have been wasted – Government spending is still not under control, the public debt makes the mind boggle – nothing will have been achieved!

    The best option is for no-one to vote for anyone at the next election! I, for one, do not want any of the corrupt thieving bastards wasting any more of my money – extracted under threat of prison – on anything else….!!

        There is no “None of the above” on a ballot paper.

        Show me where any of the current Cabinet or Shadow Cabinet, for that matter have any experience of the “real” world. Cameron was Lamont’s bag-carrier, briefly had a stint as a PR guru for a firm that were to all intents and purposes taken over. Beyond the closeted world of the Westminster village they are nothing and I no longer feel we need them nor do they truly represent the areas that are classed as “constituencies.”

        Candidates for MP are chosen by local party members, not the electorate as a whole and, in most cases, one of the favoured few is parachuted into a safe seat – see David Cameron – Stafford, Kensington & Chelsea and finally Witney!
