        Dear God almighty

        What a crap interview by Robinson and the BBC.

        If they weren’t such rabid Socialists you’d expect them to be embarrassed by their shallow degenerate interviews.

        Please in Gods name, bring on the privatisation of the BBC, it cannot happen an hour too early.

          Agreed – an appalling ‘interview’. We have come to expect better from Nick Robinson in this very high profile job with the BBC. He should be ashamed of himself and so too should his bosses at the BBC. A ridiculous line of questioning – straight out of the John Humphrys school of broadcasting. Advice to Nigel Farage: give no more space to this silly man.

          What an absolute Wally that Nick Robinson is. He’s been put up to embarrass Nigel and only succeeded in embarrassing himself. Crap questions; the BBC must be getting hard-up for script writers in their News Room. Looks like the Tories and the Lefties are running scared of UKIP.

            Are you the same bloke that said Nick Clegg won the debate before the opinion polls were out.

            Clearly Robinson was made to look like a managed stooge and impotent to carry a decent interview.

            The condemnation of Robinson’s attempts to smear Farage speak volumes of the general publics feelings about the BBCs clear lack of impartiality and political bias.

            Robinson is yet another paid for journo eager to keep claiming his taxis home on expenses whilst smearing Farage to order at the behest of his BBC bosses, a sorry day and another stooge.

        Robinson and the BBC are not being “daft”…. they are playing a cynical and dangerous game of public manipulation, or propaganda.

        That the BBC (with the Governments acceptance) now both broadcast such blatant one sided propaganda is extremely worrying and sinister.

      His wife is earning a modest salary – which is fully declared.

      The UK taxpayer only funds a fraction of the cost of his wife though as the costs for MEPs are born by all European taxpayers.

      As with the screw up with expenses / allowances, the rules again for Europe are different, and so technically are the liabilities for the UK taxpayer.

      MP’s employing their family, such as the Tory woman who employs her family to the tune of £80k / year : That certainly does directly cost the UK taxpayer, and there is a clear discrimination against regular UK workers from getting that sort of work – ie. nepotism. However, the justification MPs use is roughly the same as Farage – in that they need someone close by who is reliably able to work the extended hours.

      A’ndrew N’eil is still worth while – but watching recorded stuff is a waste of time without a reasonable recommendation or overwhelming personal interest.

      The interview above really makes the case against the BBC: Where is the public interest in what amounts to a tawdry tabloid style interview which would be better researched and more professionally executed by this blog and others if there was any real issue.

      Could have been a story and scoop for toenails, but considering the bar that has been set by the LibLabCon over past few years, Nigel is still looking respectable. And why not employ his wife ?

Just like the BNP, EDL, old NF etc. Their voters have found a new place to put the cross. Farage, MR Nice. Guy you could have a drink with down the pub. Tells it as you think it is. He says it often enough and you believe him. gullible or what? A party with policies that even the Tories would not put forward. Led by a man who hides his establishment past, lack of a real job, pick up the money politician. Just like the ones Farage says are wrong. He is no different. Only talks about what he is against. But can offer no alternative. Vote UKIP….. only when my last brain cell has stopped working.

      But I’m a slap head dweeb who like Milliband was always picked last at school sports – but this is my time, I am loved, I am important, I am the BBC.

      I maybe a pathetic stooge but its a small price to pay for being loved and getting taxi’s home on expenses whenever I want.

      The lads at school would say I’m punching above my weight..

      Yeah, he kind of focked up on that one. Someone should be prepping him better than that.

      He should know by now that these droogs are going to come at him armed, and that it’s a boxing match against the l*ft-wing media, why do politicians not think their whole game through?!

      Obviously you shouldn’t touch expenses or allowances with a barge pole; obviously you shouldn’t employ a foreign spouse… these are obvious lines of attack for the sc*m… why make it so easy for them?! Is it some kind of decoy?

      Best off voting “Paribas”, at least you get your point across without having any high expectations.

    Why shouldn,t Mr Farage employ his wife – Niel Kinnock does and makes millions a year doing it – kerchinnnng !
    Mr Farage may just want to spend as much time with his lovely wife as he possibly can – what better way than employ her, I think its a wonderful sentiment.
    I can almost hear the finger nails being brushed up at westminister – the political landscape is about to change – forever !

    Whoops.

    Farage should have expected that one… you’d think he’d have prepared a pithy comeback in advance.

    Seriously caught napping.

    Having said that, he’s made of rubber, and nothing thrown at him seems to have much impact.

    It won’t matter what they throw at him of course, because the BBC-establishment fail to understand the point of UKIP. UKIP isn’t meant to be a government-in-waiting, it’s an anti-government.
    Nobody cares whether Nigel is a hypocrite, they only care that he is an effective protest against the BBC-establishment.
    Nobody’s voting for Nigel to be PM, they are voting for him because the BBC don’t want them to… and the more the BBC and fellow travellers attack him, the better he’ll do.

      There, I think you have completely misinterpreted how UKIP will succeed. After the EURO elections they will be a force to be reckoned with, in so much that come the GE their membership will grow. Then stand by for the fireworks.

      You said

      But he is not a hypocrite is he ?
      Nothing Nigel has done re his wife’s employment is hypocritical.
      Nothing that 35% of UK MPs do in employing family members is hypocritical.

      Thems the rules.

      Robinson looked like an impotent paid for stooge repeating his masters lines like a broken record….. Your wife, German, British jobs, your wife, employed, German, British jobs, your wife…

      Truly awful smear ridden journalism that clearly highlights to what depths of socialist propaganda the BBC has descended to.

    Anyone who thinks that Nick Robinsons interveiw with Nigel Farage actually caught him napping with the question about employing his wife must be biased against Farage.

    I honestly thought Robinson came across as some frustrated Bif Journo , desperate to try and smear Farage on a live interview, you could see Robinson start to get aggressive when he realised that Nigel Farage had a plausible answer, and he could barely conceal his hatred of nigel Farage, who in my opinion made Mr Robinson Look like the stooge that he is.
    I bet the Establishment will be digging up Mr Farages grandfather next , claiming to have found an Iron cross clutched in his hand.

    Its so transparently obvious that the Establishment have rallied the BBC to do a character assassination Job on Farage, I think most of the british public are beginning to see the BBC reveal themselves for what they truly are. totally Biased towards whoever resides at No 10 Downing street, and also the wider circle of the “old boys Club”.

    Nigel Farage knows this, and the Establishment know he does too, thats why they are in a state of flux, as they realise the game is up.
    Nigel Farage is the ONLY politician who goes on TV and actually answers questions levelled at him – ask the same question to Nick Clegg and he would ramble round the houses until the interviewer forgot what he asked him in the first place!
