          Damn right, and if this is the europhiles fight back he’s wasting his time.
          We don’t trust any of ‘em. Will our Brussels Broadcasting Corporation be showing this or would that mean acknowledging that ukip exist?
          There’s a head of steam among real people here about the eu. Labour may unwittingly have helped stoke the boiler when all they meant to do was get a cheap point or two over DC and his eurodiscomfort.
          The eu will never accept any meaningful renegotiation and our establishment is so housetrained they’re only fit for traitors gate.
          It’s all going to have to fall apart before we get free.

            feels like it – doesn’t it?

            now – after the US election – its cut, cut and cut again in the US – defence spending and – subject to the ‘trade round’ – aggie subs

            EU wants more money – no wonder – its losing its voter popularity sur le continent – and needs the slush to buy loyalty (cf imperial elections for the HRE several centuries ago)

            with luck its falling apart anyway

            There is only one way to end all this corruption and that is to do exactly what UKIP are campaigning for.

            But UKIP don’t go far enough.

            The UK should also sue the EU for its failures, as would happen with a fraudulent private company and claim back ALL the net contributions it has made since this omnishambles began.

      Ukip could avoid any criticism of this type by announcing that their MEP’s elected in the 2014 elections will not attend the EU.
      Anyone from any party who wants to leave the EU could vote UKIP without compromising their loyalties.
      They are already on target to win more MEP seats than Lab or Con.
      No referendum needed if they get enough support.

        But will they ? it occurs to me that UKIP really do need to get their house in order, wasnt Nigel in trouble a few years back with his expenses ? Because a lot of people are sceptical about the EU it doesnt follow that UKIP are the answer, unfortunately there are a lot of people about who are gullible.They couldnt tell you one policy but they say they will vote for them.

        Henceforth November 22 2015 will be known as “Capitulation Day” the day when Cameron surrenders to his EU bosses on budget reform an also to the European Courts on votes for villains

        Initially Cameron was talking about vetoing ANY rises, now its been watered down to above inflation. But fear not Cameron WILL give in to Rumpy and pay whatever Rumpy demands. There will of course be buckets of spin put on his surrender to make him sound tough but we will still pay up, The convicts WILL get the vote too just you watch

        Oh yes they will get the vote, Cameron will capitulate. A couple of weeks ago he said he would veto ANY rise in the EU budget and would push for a reduction. But he is now in discussions with Rumpy about a rise in line with inflation at 5%. You can bet he will capitulate on this as well, However for some reason he thinks the electorate will believe his promise of a referendum AFTER the next election, you couldn’t make it up, Ha Ha Ha Ha !!!!!!!!!

        The Spinmiesters will pull out all the stops on this one, Just watch this space

      MEPs are paid a salary fixed at the rate of 38.5% of the basic salary of a judge serving on the European Court of Justice. At time of writing (March 2012) this amounts to €7,957.

      what the fuck?
      Time for Farge to rip this Hunt a new arsehole….and perhaps ask what those he employs, all 7 of them, actually do each and every day. Guido should ask Davies for his receipts. Lets see if he is that transparent himself.

    Mr Davis, please drop the fake righteous indignation. Losing a receipt is something that happens to us all these days – especially as shops seem to be intent on stuffing our pockets with pieces of till-roll (even if we are only buying a newspaper). True, Mr Farage should provide a transparent account of his expenses – but failure to do so completely does not mean that his message to the EU is not accurate, or well timed.

    The EU’s inability (or is it unwillingness?) to manage its finances is on an industrial scale, and given the army of bureaucrats who are well paid (and exceptionally well pensioned) there really should not be a problem with producing auditable accounts.

    Please remember that the EU has failed to have its accounts signed by external auditors for well over ten years. It may as well not even bother to produce any accounts – for they are worthless….

          Fuck the students. By the time of the next election all those who voted thinking there would be no increase in student fees will be five years older and have left university. It will, at this point dawn on them, assuming they are in any way employable and are now paying taxes themselves, that actually the taxpayer doesn’t owe them a university education. And particularly not a degree in ‘media studies’ or any number of other bullshit courses.

          The kids who will be starting university in 2015 will have had the benefit of a full five years to target their ‘A’ Levels towards a degree that might actually offer them a paying job rather than the comedy arse-wipe certificates they’ve hitherto been paying 3,000 quid a year to receive.

    he’s still smarting after being slapped down by the co-leader of the EFD group Lega Nord.

    Lega Nord is not merely a partner of UKIP in the EFD group, the party shares the group presidency with Nigel Farage.

    When the convicted racist Lega Nord MEP Mario Borghezio praised the murderous fascist gunman Breivik, Farage assured the UKIP membership that he was ‘suspended’ from the group. This was bollocks.

    Lega Nord co-president of the group, Frank Speroni, holds the whip hand over Farage. Lega Nord was not prepared to even consider allowing Borghezio to be suspended from the EFD group, and Farage was put in his place. He was told, at a meeting between the two delegations, that if action were to be taken against Borghezio then Lega Nord would leave en masse, and collapse the group.

    The group is important to Farage as his presidency gives him access to certain privileges. This apparently comes before principle, before UKIP’s political integrity, and certainly before telling the truth to the party membership

    Don’t know who the bloke is but he is correct. Farage is a joke and the fact that he is the “leader” of UK Euroscepticism sums it up really.

    If Farage is allowed to be the face for the No campaign, we will lose. He is an arrogent, ranty disgrace of a politician. Even UKIP supporters tacitally agree: you all claim that you will come first in the EU elections but that you won’t get a seat at the GE. Why? The Green Party has an MP; you are aknowledgeing that you are less electabe than the Greens! Pathetic.

    What have UKIP done for the anti EU cause? Nothing. We get no research (of any analytical or academic note), they have not formed any alliances with other groups or outfits (thinktanks, media, unions, businesses) and they cannot articulate WHY we should leave just that we SHOULD leave.

    There is a massive base of former tory actavists and members who have left the tory party over the EU and UKIP has done nothing to recruit them to the cause.

    It is a shambles operating in an amateur manner and is an embarrasment for the genuine anti – EU movement who recognise that some form of plan is needed as withdrawl from the EU will be complex. What do you do with the people who live here who have come from other EU states? What happens to British nationals living in EU states? What form of bilateral trade negotiations do you intend to pursue and with who m ?- these take years to complete. Do you recognise that much of EU policy has come from the British government?-How will you reform our government? Will we need visas to visit France, how will we extradite our criminals who have fled and so on. This is a complex reationship which needs a detailed and clear plan in order to disintagle ourselves. UKIP have made no effort to present one, rather we have some random policies tacked on to the religious dogma which is that we have to leavre the EU.

    There is no understanding that this issue crosses party and ideological lines: a coalition needs to be built to determine and argue WHY and HOW we can leave rather than the childish approach UKIP gives us.

    You cannot convince people to go for radical reform on the basis of insulting speeches and a few pints in the pub. What a farce. You couldn’t even register your London Mayor candidate properly!

        Farage couldn’t get elected in Buckinghamshire, with no competition from the three main parties. The guy was in an aeroplane on polling day rather than getting the vote out – what more evidence do you need that he is useless?

        you guys keep shouting about having a referendum and how we have to leave. don’t bother with planning, organization, hard work or strategy and see where it gets you.

        when we lose the referendum because of lazy amaturish idiots who shout slogans and cannot counter the stay campaign (which will be well finance, organized and motivated) you will no doubt claim vote rigging or the like. perhaps you will remember that you were told that you’d have to do some work to achieve your goal and you couldn’t be bothered.

    Davies has admitted in the past to claiming for first class travel to/fro his constituency and Brussels/Strasbourg but only paying standard and then pocketing the difference. His defence? He gave it to the LibDems!

    He was also convicted of drug offences at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court in 2002, together with a fellow traveller Italian MEP. Fine or prison. Davies paid the fine (ie as his employers the taxpayer did); but his Italian colleague opted for prison and spent ten days or so in HMP Strangeways for his principles.

    They had both pleaded not guilty all throughout the judicial process, several court appearances to get to Crown Court for a jury trial, only to change their plea in writing the night before. His Honour Judge Fish blasted the pair for wasting the court’s time which otherwise could have been spent dealing with more serious matters like child sex offences.

    Davies’ solicitor was Saj Karim now a Conservative MEP (although originally elected as a Liberal).

    Wow. This blog seems to be the home of blind “men” and distractions. How so many can believe even half of this “debate” holds any sensible ground is truly beyond me. How some seek to judge Nigel Farage by… Yes… His smile? His dress sense? I’ve heard hoodies standing outside The Premier shop, eagerly awaiting their fags and booze to be delivered by some pathetic excuse of a man called Jim, barely able to form a cohesive moral in his washed up brain, make better arguments against a man than some of what I’m reading here.

    So… UKIPs finances havent been signed since, OMG, late 2011. Less me not forget the fact that UKIP are under no obligation to commit this material but wanted to, actually wanted to out of decency and transparency. Yes, he needs to get it sorted. But where’s the hypocrisy coming from? I’ll point it out. Are any of you aware that the EU has failed, FAILED, to sign off their accounts for, wait for it… 17 years. That’s an aweful lot of pennies and pounds that have, for want of a better description, disappeared. This doesn’t bother you? Let’s just rip into Farage some more shall we… Wait, I got more.

    So we look back to when a particular MP, one Dennis MacShae was it, started pointing fingers at Farage 3 odd years ago over the parties (EFD) rightful and lawful claims of expenses, which was totally in line with what everyone else in the EU parliament claims. Low and behold, one week ago MacShae steps down as MP for utterly false claims up to £19,000 which to receipts were utterly fiddled. Its getting better isn’t it?

    The fact so many people are using “looks” and nonsensical old news stories to discredit a man who seemingly has many credible, valid, pertinent arguments on the basis of common sense just shows a complete one sided, childish argument not worthy of an awful lot of attention.

    If your all happy to continue voting as your parents did, for the same political tennis game that’s dogged Britain since the turn of the 19th century, are happy to continue the dissolution of national state democracy, are happy to keep sending the publics money (some 10 Billion net, annually) to Brussels to make rules and laws which make no sense and hold no place in Britain, are happy to see our parliament and the Mps WE have VOTED for whih have not been imposed by one small group which bares more resemblance to the ruling of China and are happy for all the above and (havnt even scratched the surface) much more to continue without our say then please do as your parents did. Capitulate to national press, believe everything you hear on the BBC (because we all know how reliable that is) do what your told to do, vote the same and get the same. But history tells us that once something is gone, it’s a little tricky to get it back.

    The moral of my ramblings is, look at the entire picture on both sides, don’t believ everything the news tells you, look beneath the surface and don’t judge by looks. It makes you look like a bunch of childish muppets.
