Farage is Prime Time Greek Hero

Greece has taken over the EU presidency and Nigel Farage welcomed it in style. His speech attacking the Greek political classes got shown on prime time news in Greece. With hundreds of thousands of views the YouTube of his speech telling Greece’s Prime Minister Antonis Samaras that his country is now under foreign control “run by Big Business, Big Banks and Big Bureaucrats” has gone viral in Greece…

    Andrew Efiong says:

    They don’t like it up ‘em!

    I’ll vote UKIP in the Euro elections in the hope we can send a truckload of showmen and weirdos to Brussels to put the wind up the Eurocrats and Kommisars!

      Old Nige better be careful what he does, they won’t take too kindly to that type of talk. The plane crash was meant as a warning Nigel.

        Success brings enemies says:

        No doubt the Mail On Sunday will find another obscure quote made by a UKIP councillor 10 years ago to put on their front page again.

          I hate socialists. says:

          I will vote UKIP for the European elections but revert back to the Conservatives
          for the General Elections.as the prospect of a Miliband /Balls victory will be
          too hard to contemplate


          • Dave says:

            Thank You. I will ensure that any EU referendum will result in Britain remaining within the federal EU and George’s seat at the top table secure.


          • Stan says:


            Go Nigel! How refreshing to hear a politician speak such truths!


          • Sniper says:

            I will vote UKIP at the Euros and UKIP at the General. I have that luxury because hell will freeze over before the locals decide to kick out the Blue-Rosetted Donkey (currently a Donkette) currently representing “Dave”.


          • Observation says:

            @I hate socialists

            You mean you hate socialists unless they wear a blue rosette and speak green crap.


          • bystander says:

            What,you want more of the same, Camoron will never give you a referendum, have the balls to change this poisonous system by voting UKIP at every opportunity. grow a pair.


          • General Pinochet says:

            We all hate socialist gringos……………but the Tories are no longer right wing & do not deserve your vote. In some places up in the grim North UKIP are the only credible alternative to Labour. Voters in their multitudes are coming over to UKIP. I say to everyone………forget your previous loyalties & do not worry about who is in power in 2015………every vote for UKIP influences whoever is in Downing Street. Every year we get stronger & we will get representation in Parliament. Don’t be fooled by the bullshit. More votes for UKIP equal more populism & more influence. The people have had enough!

            Hasta la Victoria siempre UKIP!


          • CYNICAL OLD GIT says:

            Don’t be a prat keep voting UKIP at every opportunity !


          • Bob Affet says:

            I’ll be voting UKIP at the Euro and General elections.

            Sod the rest of the parties- they’ve collectively screwed this country up, and don’t deserve anybody’s vote.


          • (That's enough Eds, Ed!) says:

            More fool you, then! VOTE UKIP! OUT! NOW!!

        Tell me how any espionage genius (outside of Mike Harari) could remotely tie up a plastic banner around the tail of a light aeroplane in mid-flight.

        Some things just happen you know. Our Nige’s pilot did wonders to land that plane in one (crumpled) piece.

    I Was Wrong. Thankfully says:


    Saw it yesterday and commented that it would never be shown on Greek TV.

    Glad to be proved wrong.

    I also said that the BBC would never show it.

    So to be doubly wrong would be sweet.

      I has to be said that a viral on Youtube probably has more effect than Rick Nobinson on the BBC 6 O’clock news.

        The BBC would show it only if they could put horns on Nigel’s head and the numbers 666 on his forehead.

      You will not be doubly wrong, your BBC prediction is sound.

        Lampshade says:

        It is a waste of time for him to turn up to vote on matters where his vote will make not a blind bit of difference to the outcome. Far better for him to workm on getting his message out and campaigning to re-enter the European parliament with more MEPs and many more allies.

    One of these days, during a Farage speech, Martin Schulz will choke on his indignation and die in front of the Parliament.
    Well, that’s my fervent hope anyhow…

      M­a­q­bo­ul says:

      The Greek PM took his interpreter’s earphones off when he detected the irony, Schulz didn’t even bother to put them on. Barroso just sat there smirking.

      What a bunch of slime buckets.

        You have summed up the EU in one statement. However, while we are still in it we pay for the slime and the buckets. See any of the ‘main’ parties voting to get us out? Thought not, all of the slime in them want their noses in the trough. UKIP are far from perfect, but they get my vote.

      Actually When the Royal mail shares went up, Chuka WAS focusing on the hourly share price fluctuations.

      This Tweet of his reveals what a liar he is.

        Anonymous says:

        Chuka,like his Party leader,is an incompetent that has risen to a level for which they are both unfit;neither has the experience or intellect to deal effectively with the requirements of their position.
        However, they both serve to show the core inadequacy & lack of nous of the opposition party & as such can only provide an advantage to the Tories.

      Hey Cat, any chance of you running for UKIP as well, for either Parliament?
      They would certainly all benefit from your erudition.

      What about it, “Pro Patria”, etc.?

        You are too kind but I fear it is undeserved.

        Used to use the dictum of Socrates: The only thing I know for sure is that I know nothing.

        Am beginning to think, in view of recent developments in politics, banking, law, and media, to name just a few, that I had over-gilded the lily…

          Casual Observer 5 says:

          Oh – it’s been on the cards for a while.

          But I would be wary of describing Russ!a as being democratic.

          All that has happened is – the EU has gone undemocratic and Russ!a has improved it’s PR.

          Good reasons to exit the EU and sort out national defence.

          For starters – hanging the bastards who have left the UK in a position where it cannot defend itself would be a very good start, and keeping on good terms with Russ!a by not poking the stick in U’kraine – too much.


          • HenryV says:

            On balance the Russians have the government they prefer. It is intellectually idle to suggest or think that democracy, whatever it is, is the best form of government. Democracy is only one option. Listen to US political commentators use the words republic and democracy as if they are synonyms.
