That UKIP Expectation Management Strategy in Full

Godfrey Bloom is on as message as ever:

“Well Nigel Farage has to win. He can’t draw. A draw is not enough. It’s Nigel’s subject, it’s Nigel’s baby. It’s UKIP’s thing, so consequently he can’t come away having just drawn the game… He has to win and he has to win convincingly… I think he will because Nick Clegg has an Achilles heel in his argument as I discovered when I was in Sheffield.”

Talking the talk…

      The big question is who has decided who is in the audience? Hopefully it is not a typical BBC-style selected audience.

        Bloke says:

        Now we discover that Gaydo is not only pro-fox, but anti UKIP as well.

        I used to think the tosser was on our side.


        • 42
          Too true says:

          Of course he’s anti UKIP.

          He’s a true blue money monkey……like the rest of his treacherous party.

          He’d sell his own children for cash.

          Average white bloke says:

          I like Godfrey Bloom, and his wife.
          They both like a laugh, they can take it, and they don’t bullshit.

        Dirty Digger Junior has asked ME to arrange the debate

        I will have another lifting before I appear

    Yearning for a British Ron Paul says:

    Godders should be brought back as an MEP candidate for this May, he is the best member of the party on a level with Farage. Bloom was the only politician in the UK who would talk about the scam that is fiat money.

    Anyway, let’s hope Farage CRUSHES Clegg.

    Lord Owen Jones of The Cottage says:

    Get in there Nigel,destroy Clegg please.

      Why did you do this Cleggy?
      You’ll have been hung, drawn, and quartered by tomorrow.


      • 65
        Love the looks on their faces as they try to control the faeces in their pants says:

        Here’s the LibDem leader and Danny Alexander dealing with an unexpected interruption.

        If you are a supporter of Clegg and his ilk, feel proud of your leaders.

        If you’re not, have a good laugh at their scurrying away. The LibDem way, ignore problems. Scared shitless, they scarper, and their supporters disappear.

          Not in the spirit of we will fight them on the beaches.
          More like let us run away with our tail between our legs.
          Leadership – what leadership?

    Personally, I think Nigel should just shake hands then kick him in the nuts

    Is Farage the real deal, or another phoney, like EU fans, Cloggedup, Minibrain & Camoron?
    Beats me.

      Anonymous says:

      I’ve seen him at close quarters and I am confident he is the real thing. He may have a few posers around him but Farage is what it says on the tin – libertarian, free market, individual liverty, national self-government and friendly cooperation with others.

      What is wrong with any of that.

      Oh, he smokes (tonacco!), drinks (so do I) and he likes a laugh (even at himself).

    3 million jobs at stake, blah blah, ex pats living abroad, blah blah, better off in blah blah blah.. EU migrants have enriched the nation.. blah blah blah.the usual bollocks from a troughing EU loving prick.. Medhi Hussein can do one too.


    • 13
      The British Public says:

      If Clegg comoes out with that guff, he is going to lose. We have heard it all before and for millions of us, it no longer washes.


      • 33
        Socialism is theft says:

        They once said all those jobs were at risk by not being in the Euro.

        Now they say those jobs are at risk if we leave the wretched EU. But the opposite is the case. It is the red tape inflicted on UK businesses by the EU that is costing the UK jobs. Just as it has cost jobs over most of Euroland.

        Farage should ask Clegg how come Norway and Switzerland have prospered by not being in the EU?


    • 37
      Bill Quango MP says:

      Don’t forget “Can’t sell any products to the EU.. Will need a £90 visa to visit France…Letters will cost more…Won’t be allowed in the Champions League..Banned from European song contest…Kicked out of the G7 .. kicked out of Nato… 100 hour working week .. Excluded from world trade talks .. erm…erm… ..erm…. Will lose Gibraltar!…erm…

        Same level of debate for Scottish indy then. We’re all going to die when the sky falls in post Westminster rule.

        It’s odd.I never thought that being an oil producing country is a very bad thing indeed.Osborne freakonomics.

        All either irrelevant, untrue or to be welcomed – take your pick.

        Popcorn ready, Look forward to seeing Clegg made to look like the brain dead incompetent traitor he is.

      Economist says:

      Donn’t forget UK share of EU bailout of Ukraine

      Nigel for Pope says:

      Brilliant summation- don’t forget to consign that fat cow Abbott to hell too!


  9. 9
    Far Parr says:

    It is not that Farage dare not lose but that Clegg must win, and win decisively, if he is to retain any credibility.

    He’s right, you know


  11. 11
    nigels parachute says:

    Why do pro europe politicians constantly say that the only way to reform the eu is from the inside?

    If being on the inside meant we could reform it, wouldn’t we have reformed it by now?


    • 19
      Europhiliac left wing twat says:

      We learned that the best way to ‘reform’ the British establishment was from the inside.
      So we apply that logic to the EU with one subtle difference.
      We don’t want to reform it.


  12. 14
    Tardkiller says:

    Nick will have Nigel by the balls, there is plenty of ammo out there to show just how useless and crap EUkip are


    • 18
      The British Public says:

      As I see it, UKIP only has one job: to get us out of the EU. There are no other expectations on UKIP.

      Whereas the LibDems have to show that the EU works well and will go on working well into the far distant future. That is a very big ask.

      I think a strategy of throwning shit at UKIP for not fixing an unworkable system will fail.


      • 40
        jgm2 says:

        Yep. UKIP will simply use the S&P argument. The EU/Westminster is shit. True, it’s no worse than Westminster/Holyrood but if we leave then at least it will be our shit fucking things up rather than EU/Westminster shit. Plus if we jump ship we won’t be responsible for whichever world of shit they embroil themselves in as they continue their delusions of Empire.

        It’s a simple message and one that is difficult if not impossible to refute.


    • 22
      jgm2 says:

      Nigel and UKIP show up make their pre-programmed speeches and then fuck off. They don’t engage with the EU because they don’t want to be party to any of the industrial amounts of paperwork and legislation it generates.

      They’re making the point that while y’all go through with your charade there are millions of people in the UK alone who want no part of your fucking nonsense.

      When Labour had 400 or so seats post 1997 there was no point the Tories showing up to vote (they did but they needn’t have bothered). Labour just rammed through any old fucking madness with its massive majority. UKIP just doesn’t even bother pretending to be interested in their idiocies.

      I don’t blame them.


    • 23
      Bill Quango MP says:

      I would be very worried if that was the main plank of the argument. “UKIP aren’t very interested in the EU parliament.”

      No one is very interested in the EU parliament. Its too easy for Farage to counter. And he already has.

      Clegg better have something a lot stronger than that.


    • 24
      thostids says:

      I thought the Debate is on the Merits of membership of the EU, not those of UKIP. I can see Clegg trying to glue the LibDems to the pro-EU vote but as UKIP will demonstrate, the only place where the LibDems will be after the next General Election is nowhere. A repeat of the Euro -Election coming to them soon!


    • 36
      Not in my name says:

      But Clegg is such a wet blanket all the fine evidence will be of no use in the harsh & cruel balance of public opinion: he has “loser” written all over him.

    Any argument in defence of the EU has more Achilles heels than me.

      Lefty Comedian says:

      Have you any actual numbers of dead disabled people killed by the government?
      Last CIF comment I read had the figures as high as 1 million and as few as none.

      Whatever .. However many the number of dead disabled people might be it won’t ever exceed the number of newly created disabled people from the left wing desired Iraq war.


    • 35
      jgm2 says:

      Are they hunting disabled people with hounds? That’s a bit off. They should at least cripple the hounds to even it up a bit.


      • 52
        Jasmin Beckett says:

        i read that they want to set the foodbank people to eating the disabled. That cuts down on foodbank use and the disabled..And I think they want to make poor people eat their neighbours. It was in the Guardian. But I was crying so much that I can’t remember the details.
        I want all neighbours dead!
        Vote labour!

    Lefty Comedian says:

    I believe passionately in the EU.

    However if 1 million Eastern European comedians had come to the UK and undercut the comedy circuit price and made TV and comedy club work hard to come by, I might not be quite so arselickingly in favour.

    Dot Cottons fag says:

    There will be an audience who will be allowed to jeer and cheer, say’s Burley. Seeing as Murdoch’s Sky leans left these days, can we expect an impartial audience or a bussed in question time type audience. I smell a stitch up.


    • 31
      C.O.Jones says:

      They will probably borrow the audience from the BBC. They will obviously then be an unbiased audience due to the BBC’s charter.


      • 72
        jgm2 says:

        If they borrow a typical ‘balanced’ BBC audience then Clegg could be in trouble too. Labour apologists hate him for siding with the Tories instead of The Imbecile and also for the student fees U-turn.


    • 32
      Bill Quango MP says:

      Rupert is no fan of Dave. Leveson and phonegate and all that.
      So I doubt Sky will be any more pro-Clegg than average.

      And the average appears to be about 9%.

      Liar, liar .... Cleggs undies on fire says:

      I thought it was 5.25inches?

      Who, besides any people watching from padded cells, is likely to think that whatever Clegg says is truthful? Given his ‘promises’ so far, and the number of them that he has actually kept, why should anyone believe anything that the charlatan now says?


  21. 43
    A Chinaman says:

    The EU are presently mulling new sanctions against Russia.

    Should not Nigel be mulling with them rather than giving TV debates ?

    Bill Quango MP says:

    First question from the audience for Mr Clegg….

    “Thank you .. Mr Clegg. Why are you happy to debate the merits of the EU yet you won’t allow the British public a referendum on Europe?”

      Nick Clegg says:

      Bugger. I was hoping for an easy one for starters. Something about swivel eyed racists..? Anyone want to ask that one? The civil service have written me some great jokes about it..

    Dot Cottons fag says:

    If I were Farage I think I would start with. ” If you were to say anything that undermined the EU as an institution, you would immediately forfeit your £60,000 a year pension, is that correct Mr Clegg.

    Latest polls show Pro-EU LibLabCon on 67% and Anti-EU UKIP on 23% for the Euro elections.

    UKIP outnumbered 3 to 1.

    If UKIP can’t even manage to get more votes than the LibLabnCon in a low turnout Euro election then they might as well call it a day and wind the party up.

    Bye bye UKIP :-)

    Anonymous says:

    “Farage has to win”
    by playing the prevented plebiscite card. Yet without revealing if this represents a permanent move toward policy selection by the majority (true democracy). Or just a one-off introductory offer to future rule, under his personal untested ideology.

    “Clegg has an Achilles heel”
    wedged firmly in his mouth. After reneging on his election promise, and not immediately submitting himself for re-election. Then blocking the democratic demand for an MP accountability recall facility, for voters.
