Indy’s Farage Bashing Backfires

How best to give Farage a slap for his comments about admiring Putin? What about a poll on the Indy website to show just how right-on your readers are by comparison. Or not, as it turns out:

Never underestimate the power of the Cyberkippers…

UPDATE: Since our story, Indy readers’ support for Putin has risen to 70%.

    Ukippers admiring a despot? Not quite sure this is something to celebrate. When socialists admired Stalin and the like, we called them traitors. Same here. Farage is a bigger traitor than any Europhile.

    “Which current leader do you most admire?”

    Farage’s answer: “As an operator, but not as a human being, I would say Putin. The way he played the whole Syria thing. Brilliant. Not that I approve of him politically. How many journalists in jail now?”

    What is wrong with that?

    Mr Anonymous, not so much ‘admiring’ but respecting is a better word for it, as is jealousy in as much as he’s a leader standing up for the rights of his people versus the cretinous nature of what we’ve had for 20 years in this country

  32. 32
    Fishy says:

    Take a listen, if you dare, to the bizarre segment on the Lefty Today programme this morning, where the BBCs Head of Editorial Standards or something like that has a chat with Evan Davies and a Labour MP about shutting out climate sceptics. A completely contrived and choreographed debate where no-ne was debating anything – just agreeing that climate sceptics were something akin to the ‘Monster Raving Loony Party’.

    This was on top of anther non-debate where anti – EU activists, Farage in particular was disrespectfully described as ‘characters like that’. A Portugese politician responsible for EU relationships was asked about EU opposition in his country – only to tell us that there wasn’t any.

    The BBC have given up on impartiality – this morning it was listening to North Korean / Soviet style indoctrination.

    Don't look this way, look over there says:

    Nah, it’s all about having a leader who isn’t a sissy and says what he means, in the EU that is sadly lacking, with leaders as slimy greasy turds who will change their minds as soon as they have checked the poll rating, some unelected leaders think they are mini Napoleans and if they had a chance would fight the bear with others in front while they stay in Brussels, our leaders are just slimy greasy turds who’s smell changes when the wind blows

    Socialism is theft says:

    If Hitler were around today he would be heading the EU and not from the sidelines as Merkel is.

    Putin is streets ahead of the usual crop of EU and UK leaders. If we had a leader like him there wouldn’t be any need for a coalition – whatever party had him would win hands down. To look at our three ‘leaders’ Cameron, Miliband and Clegg is quite depressing. Farage is good but not enough diversity of policies in Ukip.

    Vlad Putin is playing 1950’s war games, and the trolls supporting him only bring to mind how many traitors there would have been here if Hitler had successfully invaded Britain.
    The spirit of Burgess and McLean live on in the BBC.

  53. 53
    MrNedward says:

    The establishment commentators seem utterly unable to understand or recognise how far out of touch with public opinion they have become.

    Putin is respected in this country, by the people, because he is prepared to stand up for his.

    In this country we have leaders who are ashamed of our culture, history and existence and seek to sell us out and place us last at every opportunity.

    The Establishment agenda is completely against our own interests and we know it. This is why Farage is going to rip Clegg a new arse again tonight as Farage is the only political leader who actually stands up FOR Britain. Clegg, Cameron, Miliband et al all stand up for the EU against Britain.

    On some website somewhere I read ex USN people were complaining that the new ship counting data includes all sorts of craft that have never been included before in the front line navy figures.
    Tugs and trawlers and probably the Presidential yacht and the boat rides at Disneyland.

    Anyway , the navy people reckon about 15% of the fleet is bogus. Or not bogus. just false accounting. They used to be warships. Now they are paper warships.

    Hitler was a Nazi. He only used the word ‘Socialist’ to CONvince the German Working Class that he supported them. Consider the following:

    The idea that workers controlled the means of production in Nazi Germany is a bitter joke. It was actually a combination of aristocracy and capitalism. Technically, private businessmen owned and controlled the means of production. The Nazi “Charter of Labor” gave employers complete power over their workers. It established the employer as the “leader of the enterprise,” and read: “The leader of the enterprise makes the decisions for the employees and laborers in all matters concerning the enterprise.”

  202. 202
    By the way (two) says:

    The likes of you understand, but are unwilling to admit, that Hitler was a hard-right Nazi.

    “While Hitler’s attitude towards liberalism was one of contempt, towards Marxism he showed an implacable hostility… Ignoring the profound differences between Communism and Social Democracy in practice and the bitter hostility between the rival working class parties, he saw in their common ideology the embodiment of all that he detested — mass democracy and a leveling egalitarianism as opposed to the authoritarian state and the rule of an elite; equality and friendship among peoples as opposed to racial inequality and the domination of the strong; class solidarity versus national unity; internationalism versus nationalism.”

    Its a serious poll. Putin stands up for the national interest and this is good domestic politics. Cameron flip flops and poddles to Europe and the US and lets in immigrants, talks about wind farms and gay marriage and other economically useless projects while the country flails – massive debt, unemployment (albeit falling but due to poorer paid employment ie downshift in tax revenues and lilving standards), banks supported by cheap govt money and depositors rewarded with low rates.Pensioners getting 50% on their annuities of what they got 5yrs ago and Pru CEO gets 8m pay package. Putin looks like a man of action prepared to give the bird to the hairdresser crowd in the EU and we already know Obama lacks any teeth when it comes to foreign policy. Russia isn’t unpredictable at all, pure RealPolitik – Crimea is strategically important for the Black Sea Fleet. From their perspective we have fermented revolutions and coups to unhinge their sea ccess (Syria port to Med and Ukrain Black Sea). At the smae time US is putting bases in the Baltic, they have Turkey and Australia and Germany and UK and Brits in Cyprus etc as well access via Israel.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
