Farage Cannot Feel the Love Tonight

Elton John has gone and broken Nigel Farage’s heart, pouring cold water on speculation that the singer could come out and support UKIP. Nigel, who has recently confirmed he’s still standing in Thanet South, had made the comments over the weekend:

“Maybe I’ve got a big announcement to make, you never know,” Farage said. “Like a lot of things I get invited to, a lot of private lunches and dinners and I never ever say a word about them. I was invited by Elton John and David Furnish to their house for a dinner which was held six or seven weeks ago. There were 15 or 20 people there. It was a private dinner but, yeah, we talked about politics and current affairs and all of these things and, yes, actually the press reports were right: I got on very well with Elton John indeed.”

The sun hasn’t gone down completely on their relationship though, Elton’s minions confirmed the pair got on very well, but stress, I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind, but “Elton will not be favouring any party.” And I guess that’s why they call it the blues…

          What makes me laugh about Brand and his obsession with Orwell is that Brand either hasn’t read it or didn’t understand it.

          In 1984 Britain is in the grip of extreme socialism brought about by socialist revolution.

          Orwell’s work warns against precisely the things that Russell Brand and Owen Jones promote.

          Can’t tell if they are thick or ignorant but please guys don’t sully the work of Orwell with your socialist rantings when it’s obvious he would have disagreed with you.

        “Our generation s Orwell” ( Russell Brand !!)

        What ? –still living in 1984 when he was possibly only a twinkle in
        mummy s eye ?

        …. or just possibly ..”communing ” with the piggies down on Animal Farm ?

        …. but in all probability Down and Out in London and Paris …..

          • Dangerous Brian says:

            An endorsment from that modern genius and free thinker Russel Brand?
            Go straight to the remainder bin in The Book Store, do not pass go, do end up in a pile next to that other modern classic “My Booki Wooki”.
            Fu*k off for a reality check the pair of you.


          • The two Muppets says:

            Russell Brand is full of his own self importance ,and he spouts
            utter crap . He has no consistent views on anything ,He always
            seems to be spaced out . What a role model .

    If Farage needs a bit of Elton John’s love to carry on being leader of UKIP then UKIP would be better off without Farage

      So sad So sad .
      It s a sad sad situation .
      And it s gettin’ more and more absurd .
      So sad — why don’t we talk it over
      Because it seems to me
      That Sorry seems to be the hardest word .

      It's not about religion really or marriage for that matter says:

      Rather than start our own church we thought we would impose ourselves on someone else’s.
      Carefully choosing a church that is soft enough in the head to put up with our shit and avoiding those one’s whose followers would chop our heads off.

    I’m confused. I thought you righties said only Labour and Lib Dems have nonces. So how could this happen? I think this is clearly a conspiracy against good, decent, hetero family men. Free Napier!!!

    Don’t those things usually have a numbered control knob, incorporated into the handle? Or maybe it’s impossible to concentrate on the task in hand, because potential supporters keep asking difficult questions about the nature of UKIP ideology.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
