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?

Eurostar! Well, You Might Have Seen Him on the Telly
New UKIP MEP Left Stranded in Channel Tunnel

Eurostar travel chaos struck this morning, as 382 passengers and four dogs were left stranded on a broken down train to Brussels in the middle of the 30 mile long Channel Tunnel. Among the passengers, who had to be evacuated, was newly-elected UKIP MEP and former People’s Army spokesperson Patrick O’Flynn. Normally Patrick spends his time struggling to get out of Europe, not the other way round…

Craig Mackinlay has been selected as the Tory candidate for the Thanet South constituency at the 2015 General Election – a seat being eyed as likely to be fought by Nigel Farage. Mackinlay was briefly UKIP’s leader in 1997 before serving as deputy leader of the party between 1997 and 2000. He joined the Conservative Party in 2005. Canny choice…

Twitter Bitch Fight of (Last) Week: Mensch v Breitbart

Bit late to this one, again from Twitter Bitch Fight favourite, Louise Mensch, treating us to a classic Friday evening spat.

Taking exception to James Delingpole’s defence of her former parliamentary colleague Michael Fabricant that morning on Breitbart London, the Stateside social media favourite, once a vocal supporter of the up-and-coming website, trained her fire on its Managing Editor, former pal Raheem Kassam.

Seconds out.

Chuka Talks Trash About Cyber-Kippers

On the Marr Show this morning Chuka Umunna claimed voters feel disconnected from mainstream politics because they don’t know how to send emails or browse the internet and that “a lot of those voting for Ukip” in the European elections were not computer literate and can’t do things like use email or browse the internet. Note he didn’t say they couldn’t manage to vote in greater numbers than Labour supporters…

Evidence that Chuka is talking trash can be found all over the internet. This is particularly striking:

How does Chuka explain that?

Fun-Loving Farage Stars in Extramarital Dating Site Advert

Sponsored

Extramarital dating site Victoria Milan, have somewhat provocatively launched a new billboard campaign outside UKIP’s Mayfair HQ poking fun at Nigel Farage’s alleged penchant for the ladies. The website offers a discreet social network for men and women seeking a secret affair rather than an in depth discussion of European affairs. Allegedly.

PICTURE SPECIAL: Farage’s Top Tory Totty

Gordon Brown declared Nigel Farage to represent the best of British during his Press Gallery lunch this afternoon, telling hacks: “Britain wouldn’t be Britain without Farage with a pint in one hand and a mystery lady in the other”. Well now Guido can solve the mystery…

The blonde with her arm draped around the fun-loving UKIP leader in the (above right) photo is Tess Weeks, privately educated (Haberdashers’ Monmouth) the UCL graduate speaks Russian and Italian, she works as a recruitment consultant with Palm Mason in Canary Wharf. She attended the boozy conference in Malta last week in the course of her work. Guido cannot think why a well-lubricated Nige decided to make friends:

No need for Kirsten, the missus, to worry, there was no 3 a.m. walk back to a hotel room this time however. Tess has a boyfriend and says she is a proud supporter of the Conservative Party…

Farage Drowns His Sorrows at the Newark Count

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

It’s a Jolly Holiday With Nigel
Farage Spends Home Stretch of Campaign 1,718 Miles From Newark

With the polls opening in a matter of hours for a crunch by-election, where is the leader of the party that is hoping to break through to Westminster for the first time? Nigel Farage is certainly not in Newark. Instead he was spotted at the Hilton Hotel in sunny Malta, 1,718 miles from rainy old Nottinghamshire. Instead of campaigning, Farage is hobnobbing with Helen Grant and Lord Adonis at the Institute of Travel & Tourism’s conference. A vote of confidence for Helmer!

Following the revelations about Brooks Newmark’s paisley pyjamas, Hugo Rifkind wonders in this week’s Speccie what other politicians wear in bed:

“Chuka Umunna will sleep in Calvin Klein briefs, all the better to catch a glimpse of himself in the mirror on his ceiling.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
