Farage on HIGNFY - pass the sick bag Mabel

A bravado performance of false bonhommie and faked laughter through gritted teeth by NF last night. It was cringe making to watch him calling McShane a scumbag. It takes one to know one Nigel!

I am glad they replayed the A Neil clip nailing Farge's broken promise on publishing his expenses quarterly. Nothing has appeared so far this year.

Farage's statement that he did not claim expenses from the EU but allowances drew derisive laughter from the audience. They were lauging at you Nigel not with you.

Keep it up Nigel. You are making UKIP a lauging stock every time you go on TV.

I thought you would post something like this. I was quite looking forward to it.
I was embarrassed for all the Ukip members tuned in.
That should cause the polling to drop a few points.
Nigel would be far better off staying away from the programme.
The Beeb is out to get you-and they had quite a success last night.
A complete disaster.

I am glad I did not fail you.

Farage's ego is huge and his judgement is lacking

Given this new series' blatant bias especially over Savile, HIGNFY is the last place he should have gone.

It was bad enough last time he appeared but Oxo is right - they would clearly be out to get him this time and they did.

A disaster indeed

Farage is the only one in the EU with an oz of intelligence.

Britain will not stay in the EU for much longer. that is a fact.

Germany will take over Europe and rule with a iron hand. It will end in utter disaster.

England will crash and burn soon.

Why do you think that the BBC invited you Nigel ? To pillory you !

You are not quick-witted enough to see what was coming, nor use the occasion to score some humorous points - it's a "humour" show !

For heaven's sake get out of the way !

Farage also seemed to think on Friday that China is the world's biggest economy. Laugable. Any serious politician knows the US is the biggest and most important economy.

I have consistently praise Farage as an entertainer for he is clearly a most accomplished monkey it is his skills as the organ grinder that are so clearly lacking but sadly on HIGN4U this time he let us all down on every count.

Indeed - cringeworthy but sadly he almost always is, he is so very unreliable and so very unprofessional and so very under confident. His propensity to hide in drugs and the beds of seemingly anyone who wishes access to his money is a clear mark of his insecurity - he even has to pay his wife!

Very sad when one considers what huge hope so many of us had for UKIP but our lifeboat to sail us out of The EU has clearly been siezed by pirates, low lifes & ne'r do wells and is no longer fit for purpose.

The sham of historically publishing accounts & being too busy indulging himself to be up to date is an outright lie.

Nigel Farage promised on Meridian TV and elsewhere in 1999 that he would publish full and transparent accounts and not employ family!

Currently Farage pays Kirsten about £30K a year which he DID NOT publish, it took the investigative journalist Daniel Foggo to expose that lie and to date he seems NEVER to have published fully transparent accounts.

Nigel Farage doesn't even declare his interests and directorships on EU MEP's declarations - consider 'Thorn In The Side Ltd.'!

Corruption, incompetence and unprofessional behaviour are hand in hand with racist, xenophobia, failure to honour debts, anti homosexuality and anti Islam as endemic in Farage's UKIP it would seem!

Their lies make the situation worse!

As a long term supporter of UKIP seeking to clean it up & make it fit for purpose I will continue but many have given up!

Sadly Farage's party has done huge damage to the credibility of EUroScepticism as provably shown by their risible results in domestic politics with 3 to 8% in elections at a time when the Leave-the-EU vote seems naturally above 50%!

If only they could control Farage & find someone of competence with some gravitas and basic Officer Qualities as a leader!

Thx Greg,

I would go along with the spirit of what you have written. The tide is running our way at last. As Bootle says in today's, 12 Nov, DT,

"It is one thing to give up sovereignty to a body which is honest efficient and prosperous; it is quite another to give it up to one which is riddled with corruption, incompetence and failure".

The last part of this quote of course applies equally well to Farage's EUKIP. This is what worries me. As the Euro realistic tide rises our cause will be smeared by numerous ad hominen attacks on Farage. He is a soft target for the Europhile media and we would take that away if UKIP ditched Farage and his Cabal asap. The Eurorealist cause is strong and can be articulated by honest decent ordinary UKIP members.

though I agree with you Nigel Farage and his clique and the grybby little claque of, to use Farage's chosen word for such people 'scumbags', have done immense harm to the genuine EUroSceptic movement.

The danger however is that if UKIP were to have a radical prunning of roots and branches to get rid of the self enrichers, the corrupt, the liars, the cheats, the incompetent and the downright vile there would, it seems, be absolutely no one left.

It is clear that of those left in UKIP it is near impossible to identify an honourable individual of any morality much beyond Geoffrey Collier and possibly members of Team Junius as they would seem to be THE ONLY honourable individuals speaking out against the vile behaviour, the disjhonesty and the outright corruption of UKIP.

Let us hope that the widely discussed investigation being conducted by Channel 4 will expose them finally and even put some of its thieves and criminals behind bars, or at very least before the courts.

Sadly it seems UKIP's present self serving low lifes and ne'r do wells have so over stayed their welcome that they may reasult in UKIP being nothing more than a befouled and grubby smudge in the history books regarding today - alongside their chums The BNP and the gutter politicians of The EU.

Sad as so many of us who supported the core claimed principles of UKIP found we were duped and had been lied to. We had such hopes of liberty!

Is there anyone out there who has:
Very few skeletons in the cupboard,
A passion to regain sovereignty,
I am sorry to add, a fair bit of cash, or access to it,
Management skills,
Good contacts,
A belief in democracy, and
Presentational ability?
If so just think of the number of people who have left Ukip who might be tempted back into a different fold.
Anyone interested before it's too late?

Eric Edmond said...

This is a tough ask. I doubt the person exists who ticks all the boxes 100%. We need a team rather than one person and a collegiate approach which is roughly what the other parties have.

What we must avoid like the plague is the current UKIP leadership cult worship where any one who disagrees on anything with the great leader is humiliated, trashed and expelled.
