Farage: Free Movement of People Means Free Movement of Jihadis

Around 1,000 people watched Nigel Farage’s Basingstoke speech on the Paris attacks last night, which was punchy even for him. The UKIP leader wasted no time in immediately declaring to rapturous applause:

“there is a problem with some of the Muslim community in this country… We have a fifth column that we have welcomed in…”

Farage then mocked Cameron’s demands for EU reform as reminiscent of Chamberlain’s Munich Agreement, going as far as to wave a piece of paper around. Yesterday Guido noted how Nigel had a point when he predicted ISIS would pose as refugees, last night he went further:

“The warnings were pretty clear… ISIS said they would use the migrant tide to flood the EU with half a million jihadists… I would suggest 5000 is too many… 500 is too many… it only took eight to cause that destruction in Paris the other night… This dream of the free movement of people, this dream for others of the Schengen area. It hasn’t just meant the free movement of people, it has meant the free movement of Kalashnikov rifles. It has meant the free movement of terrorists, and it has meant the free movement of jihadists.”

Guido was rather surprised when he went to the bar for a post-speech pint with a co-conspirator, only to be told UKIP had requested they didn’t serve alcohol…

Flashback: Farage Predicts ISIS Will Pose As Refugees

Readers may remember Nigel Farage warning the European Parliament back in April that ISIS could sneak terrorists into Europe posing as refugees. His speech was roundly condemned at the time.

There is a real and genuine threat. When Isis say they want to flood our continent with half a million Islamic extremists, they mean it. There is nothing in this document that will stop those people from coming. Indeed I fear we face a direct threat to our civilisation if we allow large numbers of people from that war-torn region into Europe.

The Mirror derided it as a “shameful attack on fleeing refugees” while Amnesty disputed the claim that terrorists would attempt to enter Europe in the guise of refugees. Its Deputy Director of Global Issues told the LA Times“You’re trying to flee for your life … but somehow you’re dangerous.” Such pronouncements are few and far between now that it is suspected that one of the bombers entered Europe through Greece posing as a refugee. Even Benedict “F**k the Government” Cumberbatch has piped down. 

Winston McKenzie Goes Out With a Bang

It wouldn’t be a Winston McKenzie interview without him slagging off London as a “complete dump“. Winston has now quit UKIP, the fourth party he has been through after spells with the LibDems and the Tories. Will it be the SNP or the Greens next?

UKIP’s No Answer Campaign in Oldham

Nigel Farage and John Bickley launched UKIP’s by-election campaign HQ up in Oldham this morning, telling potential voters to give them a ring on a freephone 0800 number. Yet if you call the number advertised, budding ‘Kippers are told: “The 0800 number you have dialled is unfortunately no longer available”. Amusingly this is the same hotline that Guido revealed has been disabled back in March this year after it was spammed by Hope Not Hate.

It’s a No campaign alright, no answer…

UPDATE: Hurrah! Since Guido’s story this morning, the number now appears to have been reactivated. Happy to have been of help…

John Bickley UKIP’s Oldham Candidate

UKIP have gone for John Bickley for the Oldham West by-election. He is a self-made businessman and the son of a trade unionist, and a key proponent of the Red UKIP ‘protect your benefits and the NHS’ strategy in the North. He would already be an MP if UKIP had put enough resources into the Heywood and Middleton by-election last year, but he lost to Labour by just 600 votes. Labour sources in the area say they will paint Bickley as a carpet-bagging serial loser who has run for parliament and been beaten three times already. Voting day will be December 3…

UPDATE: ‘Bickley Backs Britain’ is UKIP’s slogan for Oldham West. The implication being that Corbyn’s IRA/Hamas/Stalin/’Malvinas’-backing Labour do not…

Farage: Portugal Crisis is “Modern Day Brezhnev Doctrine”

Nigel Farage has given another one of those must-watch speeches in the European Parliament today. The topic was the democracy crisis in Portugal, where the government has lost its majority but the anti-EU opposition is being prevented from attempting to form a coalition:

“This is the modern day implementation of the Brezhnev Doctrine. This is exactly what happened to states living inside the USSR . What is being made clear here with Greece and indeed with Portugal is that a country only has democratic rights if it’s in favour of the [European] project. If not, those rights are taken away. And perhaps none of this should surprises us as Mr. Juncker has told us before: there can be no democratic choice against the European treaties. And the German Finance Minister, Mr. Schäuble, has said: elections change nothing – there are rules. I think for anyone that believes in democracy, Portugal should be the final straw. It should be the warning that this project, [in order to] to protect itself and all its failings, will destroy the individual rights of peoples and of nations. My country has always believed in parliamentary democracy so strongly that twice in the last century it risked everything to fight for parliamentary democracy, not just for Britain but for the rest of Europe too. And I actually believe that for all of us that believe in democracy and want to see it reimplemented, the British referendum offers a golden opportunity.”

The opposition in Portugal might be socialists, but the country is effectively suspending democracy to prevent Eurosceptics with a massive electoral mandate from taking power…

UKIP Oldham West Runners and Riders

UKIP are already mobilising ahead of the Oldham West by-election. The party managed a respectable 21% there in May, though Michael Meacher leaves behind a formidable 14,000 majority. Guido gives you your runners and riders to be the UKIP candidate…

  • Paul Nuttall – UKIP’s deputy leader is the favourite. Nuttall has previously run in neighbouring Oldham East and is seen as the party candidate, “Nigel’s choice” as one senior figure puts it. Main drawback is he is a Scouser in a Manc area.
  • Mark Davies – A self-made businessman, free marketeer and ethnic minority candidate, Davies “has a great backstory” according to an ally. Ran in Manchester Withington in May so has experience, too.
  • Steven Woolfe – Another local and also a BME candidate, Woolfe came a decent third in Stockport in May. A long-time party spokesman whose face is well-known from TV, though he is currently recovering from recent serious surgery. The by-election may come too soon for him.
  • John Bickley – Fought for UKIP in the Wythenshawe by-election, Bickley is a self-made businessman and the son of a trade unionist. A key proponent of the Red UKIP ‘protect your benefits and the NHS’ strategy in the North. He is old-fashioned ex-Labour so could clean up if they choose a Corbynista candidate.
  • Louise Bours – Famously mouthy and a North-West MEP, Louise was surprisingly coy when Guido asked her if she fancied running: “Any decisions about Oldham will be made by the local branch in conjunction with the UKIP NEC.” Guido will take that as a yes.
  • Francis Arbour – The party’s candidate in May, where he finished a strongish second. Will feel he deserves another crack.

Guido understands there is a hustings at the weekend and the decision is imminent. They think they have a shot…

#CamsCon: New UKIP Attack Video

UKIP HQ have released a new attack video today to coincide with the launch of cameronscon.com, a site soliciting donations for UKIP’s referendum campaign.

Guido has seen higher production values…
