LISTEN: Farage Hangs Up on BBC Radio Scotland

“I’m sensing similar hatred from this line of questioning as I got on the streets yesterday… [Question: Remind me how many elected representatives you have in Scotland?] Absolutely none, but rather more than the BBC do. We could have had this interview in England a couple of years ago, although I wouldn’t have met with such hatred as I’m getting from your questions. Frankly, I’ve had enough of this interview, goodbye.”

Trip went well then…

        You are becoming deluded by the lightweight fluff news channels. It is the job of a broadcaster to ask awkward questions (remember Paxo and Howard?). Serious politicians do not throw a strop on the air just because their script is not the one which gets followed. Parker is a lightweight (and nasty piece of work).

          this site celebrates – rightly btw – Hodge getting a going over from TV media yesterday, but throws it’s hands up in the air when Saint Nigel gets ask a difficult question and chucks a childish strop.

          comical – and why UKIP won’t be a sustained political force in this country

          • The S-N-P supported Hitler says:

            I should think this publicity will be good for UKIP. And it won’t have done any good for Alex Sal-mond.

            Scotland’s Lefty mongs have shot themselves in both feet, again.

          • Biased Scotch Beeboid says:

            Except Hodge was praised by the BBC and that Jock interviewer was not in the slightest bit interested in obtaining the facts and was only trying to insult his interviewee.

          • An honest Tory says:

            Nope. Interviewer was just doing his job. As Marta Andreason said, Parker just expects everyone to call him sir and genuflect in his dazzling presence.

          • Dave says:

            Hodge was praised by the BBC over her tax affairs? feel free to provide a link.

            and i agree that the SNP won’t do well out of this in England, and UKIP won’t do well in Scotland but that probably suits them both quite nicely.

            wonder if UKIP should campaign to send all the Scottish immigrants back if we seperate? how many millions of jobs are done by Scots? ;)

          • Norfolk's Finest says:

            It’s about time someone told the BBC crypto-communists where to go, live on air. Farage has the guts to do it bluntly. Come Independence from the EU (which would be a racing certainty if only we, the people, would ever be asked to vote on it), the BBC will need to look at itself carefully and ask itself: in a newly independent sovereign (again) country, just whose side is it on?

            Perhaps leaving the EU is the only way to give the BBC a good and well-deserved kick up the backside. That’s reason enough to vote Out for me!

            Give these sponging Scots their independence and reduce my tax. I’m sick of funding their drug taking and drinking.

          • My great granda' wuz a jock (AKA. The Shite Heather Club) says:

            Nigel flys into a rage – and crashes.

            Still, it just goes to show that the hairy ar5ed jocks don’t like being told what to do and think by England – I wonder who will be their figure of hate when they fuc.k up after independence?
            Bonny Prince Charlie, BTW, was a limp wristed Italian. And a Tory.

            Funny old world.

          • Vote Tory, get heir to Blair says:

            The Scottish majority have always been racists, anti-English and even anti-British. They will vote against Independence though because they know they can rely on English subsidies far more than EU ones.

          • Scotch Egg says:

            I cannae wait for the Scots to leave us in England & join the Eurozone of Pain. They are the most feckless, lazy, unhealthy people in Europe. Most of their “talent” work in England. The rest live off the State and booze away their limited brain cell banks…

            Just can’t wait for the jockulars to bend to the will of Hollande & Merkel and enjoy the fruits of the EUSSR’s collapse.

          I’ll go with that.

          The reporter was correct, if agressive, in saying that Farrage doesn’t know much about scotland. Farage gave the wrong answer.

          • George Fcuking Galloway says:

            Would a BBC interviewer ever dare in a million years to suggest a Scottish politician didn’t know anything about England or English politics?

            I don’t think so.

            You see to the BBC, England isn’t even a real country.

          • S P 4 B S says:

            farrage fluffed it.

          • Just here for the tea says:

            As UKIP would want Scots as UKIP members speaking up for Scotland within the UK, it is clear the BBC interviewer was a childish small-minded prick out to score a ‘point’ rather than put UKIP on the spot about how their policies would affect Scotland.

            (BBC training and agenda fulfilled?)

            So if you think the interviewer was in any way correct you must stupidly think the Scots parochial, ideological and bitter – really that’s just the BBC and other Lefties.

          • S P 4 B S says:

            Mr. tea,
            How popular do you think UKIP is in scotland?

          What the Beeb should be doing is looking into the sheer hatred that was directed towards Farage.

          Telling an Englishman to get back to his own country? If I walked up to a Scot in England and said that to him FOR DEFINITE I would be arrested and charged with a hate crime.

          Farage should force the Police to take action and for Salmond to apologise on behalf of all Scots.

          If nothing is forthcoming he has a very big stick to beat the SNP with as most Scots are appalled at such anti-English, anti-British, racism.

            People don’t hate UKIP as the recent local election results proved and as the European Elections have previously proven. As for someone who accuses someone of being not very bright, the comment re the Nigel and Paxo interview is out there in the public domain and the original anonymous chap possibly you had not made the effort to check. Which is not very bright either. So someone you disagree with is ‘a bully, foul mouthed and not very bright’ these are all traits you have displayed. So do some research and look up some of Derek and Clive’s finest and you will find out what I think of you.

      Mong Watch says:

      True. And the political position of BBC Scotland is now quite clear.

      However, they perhaps do not seem to have realized that they are opening the goal for an own one up their.

      If they give UKIP the treatment like this, making the case that they have no part in Scottish politics because they have nothing to do with Scotland despite the explicit UK in the parties name, then they taking a racist political position against England.

      To do that against an Independence party is all the more curious.

      If they truly want independence then the logical political position would be to support UKIP, but from a position that what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

      BBC Scotland’s political position then is very much against Scottish independence, and this is perhaps because they realize the commercial implications of such a split. Folk in Scotland who feel independence from UK for Scotland is a good thing should perhaps tune out of the BBC.

      The bigger confusion with Scottish independence is that those who are selling it to the people are doing so from a position of: Leave UK, join EU direct.

      That is the contradiction.

      Scotland would end up with less independence by leaving the UK and joining the EU.

      That is really the primary point being made by UKIP for the UK itself with respect to referendum on EU and perhaps not giving up sovereignty so freely, and certainly not without a democratic vote on the matter.

      The BBC editorial is part EU funded so their message on all of this cannot be trusted.

      Time for a bit of a rethink perhaps ? And the interviewer perhaps should be taken off of the air. Very unprofessional.

        If the winner has to pay for the next Eurovision smarmfest then this time the voting system is going to allow some aggression and worse wailing than ever before:

        What do you reckon?
        evens: Germany?
        2 to 1: Luxembourg?
        7 to 1: UK?

        I expect the Greeks, Spanish, Cypriots, Italians etc to vote heavily for the Germans for the next few years, unless they are bought off.

        These were more lefty student scum rentamob rather than SNP – as evidenced by the SWP placards they were carrying and the involvement of a Labour Party official, Max Crema, who sounds like a cheap wannabe Italian style coffee machine bilge, with imbecilic behaviour to match the awful taste.

    Farage has been working towards the break-up of the UK, the country he supposedly believes in, and he hasn’t even noticed. That’s why his fuse has blown. Salmond will be rubbing his podgy hands and grinning his smug grin.

    If ever there was a reason for Scottish Independence Farage has just given it for the whole world to see.

    Scrap the Referendum.

    Just pass the legislation for the break up of the Union now. England and Wales can leave the EU and leave Scotland with membership intact.

    If Mr Cameron wants to he can negotiate reentry for England and Wales on his terms .

    Thank you for all you have done for Scottish Independence

    The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

    So let me get this right. Nigel Farage goes to Scotland to do a bit of publicity for his political party. A lot of aggressive shouty people surround him and stop him from legitimately airing his views. The police are worried about the situation and bundle him in to a pub and barricade the doors. Then they get a police van to take him away because they are concerned the situation could get out of hand (i.e. turn violent).

    1. Whatever his views Nigel Farage was denied freedom of speech by an aggressive baying mob. That isn’t exactly peaceful ‘democratic’ protest, is it?

    2. The mob described themselves as Nationalists and Socialists. Now where have I heard that one before?

    3. If they consider themselves to be the militant, organised wing of National Socialists out to silence political opponents, doesn’t that make them Er.. a bit like the er.. Brownshirts?

    4. As they are Scottish perhaps we should call them the Broonshirts?

      LibLabCon Are Cowards says:

      The BBC website quotes one of the mob leaders as Max Crema, 21, an officer at Edinburgh Student Union. Actually, he’s a full-time Labour Sabbatical Officer – he is funded by the Labour Party for his political work on campus.

      So this was not some spontaneous Rentamob, but a group organised by a paid Labour Party activist. I wonder if Ed Miliband agrees with Labour Party employees using mob violence and intimidation to shut down democratic politics?

      And if you’re wondering – yes, of course he’s a posh middle-class prat.

    UKIP Member. says:

    UKIP believes that the WHOLE of the UK should leave the EU and is campaigning on that basis.
    This is a perfectly valid point of view and is our policy.
    If Scotland decided it wished to be an independent country, I think UKIP would regret the decision, but accept it as the will of the Sottish people.
    We cannot claim independence for the UK but deny it for Scotland, IF that is what the majority of Scots want.

      Lefty Anon from Glasgow,
      a copy of the radio interview is at the top of this web-page.

      For any member of the BBC to say UKIP are not part of the political debate in Scotland is obviously:
      - what Nu Liebore want
      - what the BBC wish were true
      - obviously wrong because it’s being discussed
      - sneering, when then saying “remind me how many elected representatives you have in Scotland”, after he’s had to have been protected from renta-mob by several police when setting about campaigning.

        Hilarious response – starts with canard of ‘lefty’ (being ignorant – and wrong – on my political leanings is clearly is of no relevance to the soul spouting this) … then continues with further vacuous self-righteous rhetoric.

      So Farage is taking the EU’s money and at the same time undermining it? Of course he is, it’s the very basis of guerilla warfare – take the enemy’s weapons and use them against him. Well done Nigel and co.!

      After all, if UKIP wasn’t taking the money, the EU would only be wasting it on some pointless nonsensical directive.

    Mr Farage repeatedly insisted that yesterday’s protest was motivated by “racist anti-English” sentiment, despite the fact that one of the two protestors arrested on minor public order offences after the demonstration is himself English.

    Mike Shaw, president of Edinburgh University Students’ Association’s socialist society, who helped to organise the protest, said in a Tweet:

    “UKIP protest yesterday branded as ‘anti-English’. As a proud Englishman, arrested yesterday for protesting, I dispute these claims.”

    Sorry to disappoint, but they were not SNP Members nor were they all Scottish.

    Marian says:

    According to information on the Scotsman website the anti UKIP demo in Edinburgh was organised by an Englishman called Mike Shaw, president of the Edinburgh Uni’s Student Association Socialist Society.

    Also present was Max Crema a Labour Sabbatical Officer at Edinburgh Uni and full time student union official supported by the Labour Party.
    He’s also a member of the LRC – the Youth wing of the Labour Representative Committee.

    Does that mean that Ed Milliband will be asked to make an apology on behalf of the Labour Party?

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
