UKIP Try to Play Down LBC Train Wreck

Following his on air intervention this morning UKIP spinner Patrick O’Flynn gets in touch to tell Guido he had “no concerns about the interview apart from it was a bit banal”. Asked why he intervened the former Express hack said “We had agreed 11.45, Nigel stretched that to 11.50. I had to tell them to wind it up six times because we needed to be somewhere else. Frankly, we had someone much more important for him to see.” He wouldn’t say who that was though, and is putting a brave face on it all. “The vast majority of LBC listeners are pro-Nigel, but that could have gone on and on all day.” Crikey, just imagine what Nigel might have said had it run on….

    This is the end of UKIP. The end I tell you! Their voters will be appalled to learn Mr Farage thinks it’s better to have an open door policy with Germany than with Romania. I expect UKIP to come last in the election and disappear as a political party by the end of the month.

    The only train wreck here is Guido’s coverage. As much as the media want this to be a hit that finally lands, it just isn’t going to happen.

    The MSM have so little on Farage, they have gone back into his history, childhood and schoolfriends and found nothing so they have to resort to dirty tactics.

    It has all been to no avail, his popularity and that of his party keeps growing. He is no doubt very grateful for all the publicity and so are most UKIP supporters.

    ‘Media Handler’ intervening to stop an interview, regardless of the circumstances, looks like the interviewee has something to hide and therefore you never usually see it.

    It’s as though UKIP have something to hide about Expenses, or allowances as they like to call them.

    Listening to radio or any other medium is a matter of choice. When the leftie diatribe gets too concentrated then I switch channels.
    Have not watched BBC or Ch4 for years now. Their “right” to an audience is still based on the terrestrial model before cable and satellite emerged and they had captive audiences. As professionals they have not got a clue. Instead of broadcasting what people want they try to alter the perception of what people want.
    Cannot see them changing their mindset, can see them just getting smaller and smaller till they just fade away.

    Just because O’Brien missed the relevant points Guido does not suggest Farage had the train wreck.
    Perhaps it would have been more incisive if he had let Farage answer one of his continual questions instead of constantly interupting any reply being made, but no.
    Spewing vitriol and bile just confirmed his inadequacy for his job at LBC.

    5.5% Undecided
    4.6% Green Party

    Regardless of any alleged racism within UKIP, one thing is for sure :

    Farage’s “good bloke” act is really just an act.

    If he ever gained power, he would ruin the UK, get rid of all consumer / employment protections, and be even more dangerously neoliberal than LibLabCon.

    vile labour ruined my country says:

    In a depressing way it’s almost impressive how the media and main parties control the narrative and can even control once-indepedent voices such as Guido.

    They get LBC to give a deeply unpleasant and unprofessional and vindictive interview (it must be said Farage acquitted himself very well, the interviewer was so rude he should have walked out much earlier – when was the last time a major party leader was attacked in such personalised terms, involving his wife etc) – so get an interviewer to provoke him and despite Farage not falling for it they then have Guido, Dan Hodges, the Guardian etc all ready to go with articles, videos, links everything ready in place (carefully avoiding giving full quote and context etc) and they all co-ordinated it simultaneously.

    In recent weeks it has backfired every single time, every supposed outrageous shocker etc only increased UKIP support and perhaps the country has seen through it but who knows, the mainstream (which sad to say very much includes Guido no – he has openly taken the Murdoch shilling) will keep trying until the end. Expect more of this nonsense.

    The only sensible response is to donate a tenner to UKIP or to try to talk more friends into voting for them.

  59. 59
    Tim Yeo-Yo says:

    I don’t think he’s ever going to get into ‘power’ (and you fail to define what that is) and I very much doubt he does too. To think of his motives in that way is spectacularly missing the point.

    A LATVIAN psychiatric patient who tried to r@pe a 23-year-old student should never have been allowed into Britain. Rolands Brize should have been stopped at the border and sent home because records showed he had a conviction for arson.

    The victim, now 24, spoke out after Brize was branded a danger to women and given a life sentence yesterday. She was attacked as she walked home from a night out in Hull in March last year and dragged under a bridge. The court case has cost an estimated £50,000 and with Brize being ordered to serve his sentence in a secure hospital it is thought the cost of his incarceration to the British taxpayer could be as high as £200,000 a year. That is five times the £40,000 annual cost of keeping a prisoner in jail.

    So the only assusmption one can make is that Guido, like Cameron, Clegg and Miliband is quite happy for us to remain with the cesspit of corruption that is the EU. Well done, Guido. You must be so proud. Now go and collect your 'payment' from the other establishmnet shills.

    PS.. Can't wait till next Friday when we see a defeated Cameron standing outside Downing Street holding back the tears, telling us how he 'gets it' and will 'listen' but not really meaning a single word.

    It’s worth comparing the views of two vastly experienced political pundits, providing measured opinion, with the antics of the Guido Kids and much of the MSM —

    Norman Tebbit (today):

    “As we approach polling day in the European election the efforts to discredit and smear Nigel Farage and Ukip approach a hysterical crescendo. There is, however, regrettably little attempt to deal with the issues which are raised by Mr Farage.”

    Then, Lord Ashcroft (April 30):

    “The vast majority of UKIP supporters are decent people. Smearing UKIP as a racist party by the establishment parties does them no credit.”

    And, Lord Ashcroft (April 23):

    “The more political interviewers, seemingly to enhance their own reputations, ask @Nigel_Farage “cute” questions, @UKIP will gain more votes.”

    Sobering stuff says:

    Then, look at it this way, and ask why UKIP critics flail:

    — Brown’s Labour bequeathed more debt than the total borrowed by successive rulers and governments of Britain between 1691 and 1997, the year Labour was last elected (H/T FT Westminister Blog, before Brown was ousted)

    — The Cameron/Clegg coalition will have borrowed more in one term in office than Labour did in the previous 13 years

We spent a pleasant afternoon spraying bullets round an indoor range.
    They had standard human silhouette paper targets, or, for a few bucks extra, you could buy a target with a photo of Mackaulay Culkin being kidnapped at gunpoint by some Mexican, and you had to shoot the Mexican without hitting MC.

    Bob - a broadcasting professional says:

    O’Brien’s interviewing technique – asking a question then shouting down the answer with either some inane, irrelevant comment or with the next question – is a hectoring method taught both by the “Common Purpose” media skills training course, and by the Scientologists.

    It works best if the interviewee is trying to give a complicated answer, and with frequent practice can make the interviewer sound like he knows what he’s talking about ind the interviewee sound as if he’s dissembling. Any analysis of the actual content will reveal that the interviewer really knows little or nothing, but is determined to trample over any interviewee to push forward a personal agenda.

    O’Brien obviously has some kind of political axe to grind – it’d be interesting to find out who fills his brown envelopes – and the man is a disgrace to the broadcasting profession.

    Try Country Cant, Count says:

    That sounds quite plausible to me…70,000 Huguenots and maybe 100,000 Russian Jews. Not many others. A long way to go before you get to 500,000.

    Of course we live in world of jet travel and there will undoubtedly be more immigration than in previous times.

    But the mass immigration policy supported by our political elite is a lunatics’ charter bound to end in complete disaster.

    One thing no one factors in is that the non-immigrant population is very likely going to start moving out in larger numbers over the next couple of decades. Already something like 250,000 people leave the country for good every year.

    We aren’t Japan. There are places English people can go: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA and there are our English “colonies” in South Africa, parts of Spain and the Caribbean. People won’t stick around here as population pressure rises and living standards fall.

    If the outflow rises to say 500,000 and let’s say they are 80% non-immigrant in background, then that will greatly accelerate the cultural changes we see, which in turn will provoke more outflow.

    “No political party in modern history – not even Neil Kinnock’s Labour in 1987 – has come under such sustained attack and misrepresentation. Mr Kinnock at least had The Guardian and the Daily Mirror; Mr Farage cannot boast a single national title, and several papers are running vendettas against him. Mr Kinnock was treated reasonably fairly by the broadcast media. This is not the case with Mr Farage: consider the lacerating contempt shown towards him by Channel 4 News and its chief presenter, Jon Snow. Nick Robinson, the BBC’s political editor, has also abandoned his usual fairness when dealing with the party.” Peter Oborne Telegraph

    Hello

    I like Chinese food but it doesn’t mean automatic sympathy with the Communist Party of China.

    Also I enjoy Indian cusiine but neither does that mean I agrre with the BJP’s views on how to position Indai in the future.

    I like Dark West Indian Rum but can’t stand Bob Marley.

    I tolerate Cossack dancing.

    Does this make me a racist?

    Don’t bother with the French much though. Surly blighters.

    Germans – Crikey!

    Belgians- boring.

    Dutch – ?????????

    Italians – lovable but emotional.

    Greeks – mad as hatters but we both like lamb

    Irish – likeable but prone to the bevvy

    Spanish – Coffee and Bullfights says it all really

    Portuguese – poetic and amicable

    Cyrpriots – skint ( or more skint than they were.

    Scottish – Grrrrrrrrrrrrr – who oil is it anyway?

    Nigel Farage – Man ‘ o ‘ the people. NO man is an island but he should be.

    I’ve said enough ad I’m ratherr tearful – loss of Empire European Union, Mrs Thatcher/Major sold down the river etc etc………
