WATCH: Farage Gets Brillo’d

Andrew Neil gives Farage a bit of a bashing over his knowledge of some of UKIP’s more colourful policies, at least according to their website:

To be fair, who can argue with the traditional train colours stuff…

      That was refreshing honesty from a party leader. He admitted he had no clue what the policies where when he was not leader, and no clue about the specifics of what will be in the manifesto… But on the big central issues facing the electorate he is very clear. Pro UK, Anti EU membership. Pro sensible, controlled and necessary immigration, pro sensible reality based climate and energy policy.

        Very true. Brillo must have had a senior moment, which worries me rather…

        I might have said, well none of us has said sell gold at $300.

        In that Nigel is immensely popular with the average bloke in the street because he says what he means and means what he says.

        There may be a few lentil-knitting Marxist gays in North London who don’t like him, but they don’t like most people anyway.

      We’ll have to see how things go after Toby Young sets up the Tory/Ukip vote swapping website later this year. It would be amusing to see if Farage could take seats in Labour’s back yard. I’m not convinced he will, but let’s see…

      Farage more than held his own when I watched it lunch time.
      Brillo tries time and again to shout him down with his stupid chants, and as for that so-called-business woman, she should join the other fishwives on the opposition benches.
      Their whole raison-detra is to shout something not even connected to the debate and when answered shout down the reply.
      She would really fit in with Harperson , Flint and the ghastly twosome.

        When UKIP come to power will you expunge these foreign phrases from our language. Or just make them more anglicized as in raison-detra.

        George Bush did not have time for the French. He said the problem with the cheese eating surrender monkeys was that the French language had no word for entrepreneur.

      Single currency = single bank = unified taxes = single wage rates (aka internal deflation)

      If UKIP come to power, the Euro bankers will up the interest rates on UK government debt – and given there is a shitload of it, guess what will happen – higher taxes / internal deflation.

      Getting out of Europe is no solution.

    I think Nigel is onto something with this ‘tradition’ thing. Trains should be in traditional colours, for sure, and the carriages should smell of stale cigarette smoke. Also, they should have windows which open all the way down so schoolchildren can lean out and get decapitated as the train goes into a tunnel.

    The Internet is a “gift from God” that facilitates communication, Pope Francis said in a statement released Thursday… – USA Today

    So Gore was lying to us then?

    • 44
      kmc says:

      And I thought it was created by the US military as a non-centralised network that would facilitate communication even after a nuclear war.

      But it could have been created by God. That’s why all the computer books have “Bible” in their titles, like “The TCP/IP Bible”.

      Did the Lord not say, “The geek shall inherit the Earth”?

      • 101

        If they all have “Bible” in their titles, we seem to be back to a pantheon. Thor, Chronos, Phanes/ Iapetus, Promethius would render TCP/IP, the latter two being related, as you will know.

        But men had a saying “Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifs”. Sometimes the evidence fits together rather too nicely.

          We have a greater deficit because of Brown’s gerrymandering of the benefit system

          Gay marriage is not compulsory and according to opinon polls, is supported by most of the population…so your botty is safe and UKIP is out of touch.

          It was Brown who denied the people a referendum, but Farridge keeps ignoring this. Brown skulked into Lisbon to sign it at the dead of night, out of prying eyes, in defiance of the British people

          Cameron’s pledge held good only if Lisbon remained unsigned and unratified. It wasn’t, it didn’t. Brown ratified it in defiance of an impending election and in defiance of the people of Britain. Note – Farridge has no harsh words for the real traitor, Brown

          Mr ‘New Politics’ Farridge lies about ‘the cast iron guarantee’ and when confronted, laughed and dismissed this as a ‘mere detail’

          The one certain way of getting more Europe is to allow Farridge to vote UKIP at the General Election.

          Farridge is the Homer Simpson of British politics (Doh!). Vote UKIP and Britain will be lost.

      With so many aliases, it will be hard to pinpoint any one individual, group or party doing the smearing, though?

    There seems to be an orchestrated rubbishing of the UKIP party on this site today.

    Can’t think why so many people are running scared.

      No one is running scared. In fact that is such a childish statement. Farage is a one trick pony.

          Once out of the Ropey Union we’d soon find out if our current and aspiring politicians had the nous and guts to govern without instructions from the Commissars … however, I’d advise against holding one’s breath in that event …

        The combined weight of the Lib/Lab/Con/H0m0/BBC/Kent Socialist International Workers Collective (Provisionals) has swung into action this week. There is a UKIP attack-a-day plus someone has decided to distribute sweeties to many, many bloggers to encourage the trashing of UKIP and its leader on various websites. What are they frightened of? They must be really scared sh1tless–so worried that instead of cogent argument, they rely on deprecation and insults.

    The taxi “uniform” thing isn’t policy, and it’s actually a reference to standards of dress (well, the bit I saw was). Where I used to work we had a vague dress code for drivers – I mean, do you want to get in a cab who’s driver is wearing a sweat stained singlet, and football shorts not changed since last Sundays visit to the pub? Doesn’t mean collar and tie to be imposed…

      Smears R Us says:

      I’ve been searching the 2010 UKIP manifesto. There is no reference to taxi drivers uniforms, no reference to painting trains different colours and no reference to making the circular line circular. Still, they gave Farage a good kicking for not knowing about these made-up facts, and that’s all that matters.

    Reality says:

    Farage laughed his brilloing off as he ably always does. The real damage will be done hopefully to the greed driven Conservative Party. As Brillo mentioned UKIP is on 19% in the latest ComRes poll. This may fall. But as long as UKIP divides the nasty right wing in Britain and steals votes from the Tory Party hope reigns supreme.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
