WATCH:  Killer Quotes From Farage LBC Interview

Asked whether he feels “uncomfortable” about his wife speaking German, Farage replies “I don’t suppose she speaks it on the train”. Then on whether he would rather live next to German children or Romanian men: “you know what the difference is”.

A traditionally painted train crash.

    Also that line “I got the feeling it was not the language of choice” is weird from Farage – I don’t get that.

    If you don’t know the difference between a train full of German kids and train full of Romanians, childrenor adults, you will find it statistically much harder to get off with your wallet intact. That, sadly, is the way of the world.

    Sorry Guido are you seeing something I’m not?

    How does this differ from any of the other supposedly devastating anti-Farage interviews.

    What the average ‘kipper will see is a hostile interviewer barracking someone over a couple of feeble questioning lines. It’ll work in Farage’s favour, just like the last hundred interviews of this type.

    Farage’s “problem” is that he clearly doesn’t believe any of this stuff, he’s a an old-style Thatcherite without a racist bone in his body, and really has no problem with immigration. But he’s cynically exploiting the anti-immigration vote nonetheless.

    It’s almost inevitable that the discrepancy will cause him to come unstuck, it’s just a surprise it’s taking this long

    I live on a street that, at one end, has been taken over by Roma. Supposedly Slovak, but apparently flexible. One side of the street is now a permanent rubbish dump with broken furniture, old TVs and general crap simple thrown onto the pavement. Come rubbish collection day, some Roma houses appear to produce several dozen bin bags that block the pavement, split open and are then ignored by the Rubbish collectors. Police cars arrive every night in threes or fours to break up fights or extricate some screamer from one of the houses. Hardly any adults can speak English. Gangs of younger swarthy folk congregate at weekends to set off for shoplifting expeditions in town. Until last week a score or so of young Roma girls aged about 12-14 tarted up in make up and dresses that are singularly inappropriate for their age would drift from house to house each evening and approach passers-by for “pocket money”.
    I say until last week, as Kent Police have now arrested dozens of Roma involved in a child prostitution ring and the kids and many of the adults have just disappeared.

    Sorry you asked? says:

    That will be in their GE manifesto, which, in common with other main parties, has yet to be released.

    Their local and European manifestos are readily available online and include the following:

    Reducing Fuel Poverty:
    • Outside the EU, we can abolish EU
    laws that add hundreds of pounds to
    household energy bills. EU rules keep
    energy bills high by forcing taxpayers’
    money into wasteful wind turbines and
    solar arrays.
    Lighter Regulation for
    Small Businesses
    • Only 5% of British companies export
    to the EU. Why should 100% of our
    businesses be subject to harmful EU
    regulation? Only outside the EU can
    we have more flexible regulations to
    create more jobs.
    No Votes for Prisoners
    • The European Court of Human Rights
    – which the Lisbon Treaty forces all
    EU member states to sign up to – still
    wants to give prisoners the vote. It
    also prevents convicted terrorists from
    being deported. UKIP will leave the EU
    and the jurisdiction of the European
    Court of Human Rights. Parliament
    should decide fairer human rights laws.
    Reclaiming our waters
    • Over the years, Britain’s coastal
    communities have lost thousands of
    jobs due to the EU’s Common Fisheries
    Policy. It has been an environmental
    disaster with fish stocks dangerously
    low. Outside the EU, we will reclaim our
    territorial waters, revive our fishing
    towns and ports and end discards.
    Saving Taxpayers’ Money
    • The EU costs the UK Government £55m
    a day. As the EU’s biggest customer, we
    are in an incredibly strong position to
    negotiate an amicable exit and free trade
    deal under existing treaties. The savings
    to the taxpayer would be huge.
    Local Homes for Local Families
    • UKIP will prioritise social housing for
    those with parents and grandparents
    born locally.
    A National, Not International,
    Health Service
    • It is important that everyone in the
    UK has access to free medical care.
    Visitors and migrants to the UK must
    show proof of health insurance as a
    condition of entry to the UK.
    Trading Globally
    • On leaving the EU, the UK will keep
    the trade agreements we entered as an
    EU member prior to the Lisbon Treaty.
    Outside the EU, we can negotiate our
    own trade deals, but be in a stronger
    position, as we will be negotiating in
    the British interest.
    Cheaper Petrol and Diesel
    • UKIP will seek to reduce fuel duty and
    reduce the disparity in price between
    diesel and petrol. Fuel duty is too high
    and has held the economy back.

    • Council tax should be as low as possible
    • Immigration must be controlled to relieve pressure on our health,
    education, housing and welfare services
    • Green spaces should be protected – we oppose excessive
    housing development, wind farms and HS2
    • We need more police on the streets, cracking down on crime and
    anti-social behaviour
    • Councils should cut highly paid council executives, not front-line
    staff and services
    • Real decision-making should be given to local communities
    • Money should be used for local services, not the EU, foreign aid
    and foreign wars

    Ey-up Lad says:

    What a smug little know it all that LBC man came over as. We know what the difference is, and if anyone is telling me that there has not been an enormous impact on uncontrolled immigation from the EU accession countries – then he is not actually living here. The fact is we have 2 million+ out of work; lots of graduates cannot get jobs; lots of self employed British tradesmen are out of work because they are undercut by foreign workers who work for very little because their tax credits -paid direct into a bank in Romania or Bulgaria – provide them with a bigger income that they ever had in their lives. On top of that there is pressure on housing, health services and school places. This entire fiasco was totally unplanned for New Labour and the current generation are paying the price for their negligence. And this little tosser on the radio has the gaul to question Farage about racism. What he is saying therefore is that anyone who supports UKIP is a racist – which will include many many elderly people who fought the Nazis and many younger people born since the war who have fought against racism all their lives. Is he says 25 per cent of the British population are racist. I am reminded that Gordon Brown at the last election labelled as “bigot” an elderly lady who raised the issue of immigration. He reaped the whirlwind. I am also reminded that in 1964 a Tory candidate famously told his constituents “If you want a nxxxer for a neighbour – voteLabour”. Did that make the 11 million who voted Tory in1964 racists? Mrs Thatcher warned against Britain being ‘swamped’. Was she a racist? And is he saying that there are many millions of decent British people who are equally concerned about the dangers posed by continued membership of the EU, and that they are racist also? The guy is simply burying his head in the sand. These same idiots thought Enoch Powell was racist – and a more decent, honourable, man never existed. He did not have a racist bone in his body – but he did have vast experience of serving as an Army Brigadier in the Indian sub continent during the war and experienced first hand how Muslims lived and that their culture was totally at odds with Christians living in a liberal Western democracy called Britain.

    If, in your mind the current crop of troughing clowns (so called parliamentarians) who sit in Westminster have experience, why is the UK a basket case, with debt rising by £4,000 a second, immigration out of control, whole towns being overwhelmed by foreigners, roads gridlocked to the point where 40mph speed limits are to be introduced, not enough schools, armed forces reduced to the lowest levels for years,
    health service not fit for purpose, etc, etc , etc.
    It may have conveniently escaped your attention but next weeks election is for the EU, not national parliamentary elections. No other party have yet produced a manifesto, so why are you singling out UKIP.

    I find having a go at elderly people, whatever their crimes, for things that happened almost 50 years ago or in the case of ex nazis, longer, disturbing. That is not to exonerate them. My concern is with their younger relatives, many not even born at the time, who wind up being stigmatised for something that is no fault of theirs.
    The trials won’t put the clock back and are obviously traumatic, even for the victims. Little purpose exists for banging up 80 or 90 year olds, who are likely to be spending much of their time in the hospital wing, with no financial worries. They are not going to be held in some dungeon.
    The defendants can hardly be expected to defend themselves fully when in all likelihood they cannot remember any details of something so long ago. If someone, perhaps falsely accused about something a year ago, can show that they were somewhere else at the time, this is a defence that is hardly possible after a long time lapse.
    If you can catch someone within a sensible time frame, fair enough.
    The irony is that the daddy of them all, Saville, died a happy man, having never been investigated in his lifetime.

The closest he ever had to a “best friend” was General K M Cariappa, India’s first Army Chief. In 1959 he was the first (and only) MP to denounce the Government of the day for the mistreatment of Mau-Mau suspects and until 1948 was convinced that a multi-racial British Empire was a great force of good in the world and the 1948 Act that destroyed “Britishness” was a disaster.

    The train crash worked well for Blairite Manuel Valls – he is not Prime Minister.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-24273380

    French Interior Minister Manuel Valls says he stands by remarks calling for the country’s Roma (Gypsies) to be expelled.

    He said few Roma could ever integrate into French society and “the majority” should be sent “back to the borders”.

    He has been criticised by human rights campaigners, the European Commission and one of his cabinet colleagues.

    Amnesty International is calling for a ban on forced evictions of Roma people in France in a report out on Wednesday.

    It says more than 10,000 were evicted from temporary camps in the first half of the year.

    It has said Mr Valls’ remarks were likely to “perpetuate stereotypes and encourage animosity” among the approximately 20,000 Roma who have settled in France, mainly from Romania, Bulgaria and the former Yugoslavia.

    “A theory that such and such a person or such and such a people will never, ever be able to integrate just doesn’t stand up,” said Mr Valls’ cabinet colleague, Arnaud Montebourg, according to Agence France-Presse news agency.

    “That’s what they said about the Italians, that’s what they said about the Spanish, it’s what they said about the Portuguese, and what they said about the Arabs.

    “Decreeing in advance that it is impossible seems to me excessive and is worthy of being corrected.”

    Mr Valls was also criticised by the UN human rights body, the European Commission, other rights groups including Roma organisations – some of whom are pledging to take Mr Valls to court for incitement to racial hatred.

    ‘Nothing to correct’
    But Mr Valls – a dapper 51-year-old who polls suggest is a rising star in Francois Hollande’s Socialist administration – said he saw no reason to correct comments that Roma lifestyles were “clearly in confrontation” with French ways of life.

    “I’ve got nothing to correct,” he said. “My remarks only shock those who don’t know the subject.

    “The majority [of Roma] should be delivered back to the borders. We are not here to welcome these people.

    “I’d remind you of [former Socialist premier] Michel Rocard’s statement: ‘It’s not France’s job to deal with the misery of the whole world.'”

    The treatment of Roma people – who face widespread discrimination in Europe – is a political hot potato in France.

    Mr Valls has encouraged local councils to systematically dismantle illegal Roma slums, and offer the expelled residents free flights back to their countries of origin.

    He has also been at the forefront of French opposition to allowing Bulgaria and Romania full access to the passport-free Schengen zone.

    Mr Valls is himself the Barcelona-born son of Spanish immigrants Mr Montebourg pointed out on Wednesday.

    If you think that is “killer” Guido you are a sad F*ck. O’Brien is a moron who asked NF questions and repeatedly wouldn’t let him answer. He is a smug little shit. There . . . . got that off my chest.

    LBC is owned by Global Radio – tax dodgers who have paid no corporation tax ever. They use a Jersey ruse involving big loan interest payments which wipe out their tax bill. It is chaired by a labour peer! The left wing Hunt ‘O’brien criticises everyone for not paying enough tax but he gets paid through a personal services company, thus avoiding what he wants the rest of us to pay!

    Of course the UK will still be able to trade. However, since it will no longer have the advantage of being tariff free, the price of its exports to the EU end users will inevitably rise, because they will have to pay import duties that they don’t currently, reducing their competitiveness. It will have to compete with manufacturers still in the EU who will not face the same tariffs. Japanese and Korean companies have invested in new factories in the UK from which to service the rest of the EU. This is how they deal with being outside the EU themselves. If the UK leaves the EU, British manufacturers will start opening factories within the EU, taking manufacturing jobs from the UK, in order to remain viable. The Japanese and Korean owned UK plants will go the same way if there is no longer an advantage in a UK outside the EU.

Peter Oborne makes a bold prediction

“I predict that Labour and the Conservatives will win between them a higher proportion of seats than at any election since 1992.”
