Farage's statements & actions are becoming increasingly bizarre. He is behaving more and more like a celeb out for a quick laugh than a leader of a political. But then UKIP is not a political party its a Farage cult and fan club so political party norms do not apply or so he thinks. Sorry Farage you have to make up your mind, full time celeb or serious politician.
His comments on the last UKIP maifesto having been written by an idiot could be true. This would make UKIP a political laughing stock in normal times. But we live in strange times where all three main parties are led by a self perpetuating juvenile political elite who largely went to the same two universities and many of whomm did the same course, PPE at Oxford. They are on that count out of touch with 99.9% of the British electorate as they are with their Europhile views. The EU is a political wonderland invented by professional politicians, for professional politicians to dream their dreams and be hugely well paid and feted. Best of all like heaven there is a gatekeeper, the hydra political establishment to keep ordinary mortals out so these gods of the EU can dream their Olympian dreams but like Zeus descend to Earth to fertilise a few very attractive earthbound women when the urge takes them.
The person who wrote the last UKIP manifesto was Bannerman. On my first attendance at UKIP's NEC he made me privy to some of his great ideas. He was most upset when I pointed out these 'ideas' were simply a rehash of very failed party manifesto over the last 20 years. Bannerman did have his uses for Farage, a true Lenin style uesful idiot. He it was who formulated the charges against me so Farage and Nuttall led sycophants could kick me off the NEC to which I had recently been democratically elected. Nigel, as was pointed out on a recent A Neil politics show does not have a dictionary that includes the word democracy.
Farage does a good stand up comedy act click below for his latest effort on weather forecasting.
This ranks alongside his bank clerk sketch in Brussels with Rumpy.The last politician to get involved with weather forecasting was Lembit Opik, a LibDem embarassment until Huhne, Rennard and Hancock came along.
It is clear however that the media are slowly cottoning on to Farage's make it up as I go along and deny everything embarassing like the UKIP web site tactics. He clearly has not learned that web siteis were how Obama got elected but then Nigel has never been elected in his own name for anything in a public vote. I discount the EUKIP cult vote.
How many people want hand guns legalised in this country Nigel? How many don't? How many people want Grammar schools back? How many don't?
Look at what Andrew Neil did to him last Thursday
Then look at what Louise Cooper did to him on the same show
Louise Cooper is well known in the City. I never met anyone who knew NIgel Farage.
There's more than one idiot in UKIP it seems Mr Farage. The sooner UKIP gets O'Flynn in as leader the better.
Farage wants to go to the Lords. That is the unelected, EU loving establishment that have just blocked the private members EU referendum bill. Its the unelected bit that appeals to Farage and the prospect of joining the establishment is what he has coveted these last 20 years.
