Five Star Farage Meets Italian Rebel Commander

The commander of the People’s Army has travelled to Europe to recruit a new general for his Rebel Alliance. Nigel Farage has met with Italian anti-establishment politician Beppe Grillo, leader of the Five Star Movement which came second in the polls in Italy this week. Following their summit in Brussels, Commander Farage has addressed the nation: “If this works out it would be magnificent to see a swelling in the ranks of the Peoples’ Army.” Grillo reckons: “we are Rebels with a Cause, and we shall whistle as we march.” 

The potential UKIP-Five Star alliance in the European Parliament was first reported by Guido in the Sun on Sunday in January. At the time Nige said: “We can have a bit of fun, we can be a bit naughty. The Five Star Movement believe in asking the people what they think. All I can say is, ‘Hooray!’” One to watch out for…

    Apart from the slight concern as to where the Clowns Hand might be to cause the reaction from our Nige… I think Nige needs to make friends and alliances asap.

    Manoeuvring within the EU so as to bite it hard is a Game of Throngs.

    The rebel alliance grows stronger the more power the eu tries to grab the more Europe will slip from its grasp.

    If the average polish salary is €960 per month (according to the times on tues) and the rest of the recent eu recent joiners is ever lower compared with an average of €2900 per month no wonder poor countries want to join.

          Exactly the benefits system we have is basically subsidising economic migration from Eastern Europe. We had problem with our indigenous unemployed before this happened and now that we have large numbers of East Europeans taking the low/no skill jobs this as just got worse. In part the whole sorry tale is part of our elite’s fantasy that having a large population is somehow the way forward. In fact what it has done is reduce our overall productivity to a level not seen since Japan went into the ‘Lost Decade’ and even then they beat ours! It has also put incredible strain on our entire social infrastructure as well as social cohesion generally. That none of the three main parties will acknowledge this is the root of the problem.

          Errr, well. It’s like this. During the war, we set up the Ministry of Economic Warfare. This was really quite clever and did lots of clever japes to undermine the Economies of our dastardly enemies. Well, when the Allies “won” the first stage of WW2, we wound up the Ministry, allegedly. Like, allegedly, Churchill had the Bombe at GCHQ destroyed (we still kept cracking Embassy codes). However, someone forgot to tell the Boxheads that the war for them was over. They just continued the economic war and, instead of bombing the shit out of us they out-produced everybody and in the end bankrupted everyone instead.
          The French, as usual, as per Vichy, collaborated. This was merely turned into a full surrender document in the Treaty of Accession, through to the Lisbon Treaty, the Constitution of Europe, which you will recall the certifiable manic-depressive Brown left the Country in secret and in equal is grace signed it.

    Guido, have a look at Penny Young, who runs the National Centre for Social research. She’s behind yesterday’s story on the British Social Attitudes Survey. She has colluded with the BBC (where she used to work) and the Guardian to push the “racism on the rise” story. Her tweets betray her left-wing militancy. She has deliberately manipulated the stats in the survey. Look at the stats, they show the opposite to what the media is claiming. Its lies created to link with the rise in UKIP’s support.

          This is what the survey from that self-interest group exposes and I have tried to explain this on their site, if you set up the track and set people running then you get a result.

          Spurious correlations are the remit of the modern pressure group, the imbeciles that made the survey that formed the basis of the article are not helping ‘Race relations’ they in fact polarise attitudes and make things worse.

            “from Italian fascio “group, association,” literally “bundle” (see fasces).”

            “1590s, from Latin fasces “bundle of rods containing an axe with the blade projecting” (plural of fascis “bundle” of wood, etc.)…” “…Carried before a lictor, a superior Roman magistrate, as a symbol of power over life and limb: the sticks symbolized punishment by whipping, the axe head execution by beheading.”

            http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=fascist&allowed_in_frame=0

            Fascism basically means “groupism”, and you might say that implies ethnocentrism, but actually it ain’t necessarily so; it’s more another flavour of statism, and collectivism, and is thus a fellow-traveller of Marxism, socialism, and leftism… the antithesis of things like libertarianism and anarchism and to some extent, republicanism.

            Fascism is more accurately described as a “left-wing” than “right-wing” (notwithstanding that originally left-wing meant radical, and right-wing meant status-quo-ish – now you have a situation where “the left” wants to maintain a status quo of statism!).

      Might be worth watching this one. Joey Barton is likely to leap out of his chair and twat Morgan. There are no security gorillas like on the Jeremy Kyle Show so it could be a while before they drag Joey off him (if they even bother).

        They must be watching the North Korea version.
        Mirror readers can’t read – they look at the pictures and sport.
        Personally I find it full of left whingers chaired by a champagne socialist.

    Sounds like a name of a bad pop group that had one hit, argued and then split up acrimoniously.
    They would do better be-friending the remaining Blub Dem.
