Farage Swings For Europe

Sponsored post.

Some say we’re better together and for one week only Nigel Farage is certainly supporting that notion, but for Europe!

In an unexpected turn, notorious Eurosceptic Nigel Farage has joined forces with Paddy Power to back Team Europe (in the Ryder Cup that is).

To show his allegiance, Farage has filmed a mock party political broadcast urging the boys to show those fist-bumping, flag-waving Yanks what us Europeans are really made of once and for all.

With Ryder Cup fever primed to hit Europe with a bang this weekend, Farage has released a rallying cry of support for Team Europe who will be teeing off against Team U S of A, at Gleneagles tomorrow.

The video shows Nige, in the words of 2Unlimited (who coincidentally were No.1 when the yanks last took home a victory over on these shores – 1993 for all you golf boffins), claim that there’s quite literally “no no no no, limit to the talent of this young European team.”

Speaking on the strength of the competition, Farage questions Woods’ excuse as to why he’s a no show for this year’s showdown, “…hurt his back. How did you do that Tiger? Carrying the hopes and dreams of a nation?”

Nigel Farage said, “I’m not the greatest fan of an ever closer union inside Europe, but when it comes to the Ryder Cup we’re better together. I’m urging all my fellow Europeans to get behind Team Europe and send Uncle Sam packing.”

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said “We don’t take sides when it comes to politics but we certainly do when it comes to the Ryder Cup. And when Nigel is coming out for Europe you know the whole continent is behind the team.”

Farage’s Fillies
Nigel’s Top Team Has Higher Percentage of Women Than PM’s

women

Nigel Farage now has a higher percentage of women in his top team than David Cameron following UKIP’s reshuffle today. Of the six top jobs announced by UKIP, two are given to women – Louise Bours and Jill Seymour – meaning 33% of Farage’s senior posts are held by ladies. By contrast, just 5 of the PM’s 16 Tory Cabinet positions are held by women, a mere 31%.

WATCH: Farage Says Pay Politicians More

Remember Nigel Farage? The slayer of the political class, popper of the bloated balloon and self-declared warrior for the people. Well he wants to pay MPs more:

“Would we object to 650 people earning a bit more money? I don’t think we would… I haven’t thought about it but we could certainly pay them more than that. Why don’t we say that if we paid MPs the same as the local headmaster of the local comprehensive, that would be about right. £90,000-£100,000.”

That didn’t take long, did it?

Confusion as Tories Delay Farage Target Seat Selection

Mystery and misinformation surrounds the selection of a Tory candidate for the Kentish seaside seat of South Thanet. Laura Sandys, one of the many female MPs standing down after just one term, announced her intention to quit last year. She did it early on in order to give her successor a chance to properly ‘bed in’ as a candidate. CCHQ however waited until late last month to open up the selection process. Last week that selection was abruptly halted, and those that had applied were told this was due to circumstances beyond the control of the association:

“Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control, there has been a delay in the Selection process.”

Interviews and tests planned for the weekend were suspended.

When Guido put this to CCHQ on Friday afternoon, the story was flatly denied by a press officer who claims to have checked with the candidates department and was confident that the selection process was continuing normally. A miss-speak, at best.

When this morning Guido suggested that they might like to “revise” their thoughts on the issue, in light of the email, a Conservative spokesman said:

“This is a matter for the local association.”

Yet the local association say it is due to circumstances beyond their control. What could it be about the prospect of Nigel Farage standing in the seat that so spooks the Tories?

Exclusive: Osborne Reveals UKIP Crisis Summit at Chequers

George Osborne has revealed that the Tories held a crisis summit at Chequers this morning on how to deal with the UKIP threat. Both government and party sources refuse to discuss attendees or indeed what was on the agenda. Leaving a breakfast event hosted at No.11 for alumni of Magdalen College, Oxford, the Chancellor explained his premature exit by telling attendees he was taking the unusual step of going to the PM’s official countryside residence in the middle of the week for the meeting. An important pit stop on the way to Newark…

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
