Farage On Marr. A Towering Performance.

Nigel Farage, The Marr Show, 1st June 2014

This was Nigel Farage at his very best: the man of the people, relaxed but determined, fair minded but firm, tolerant but strong, patriotic but generous.  Really it couldn’t have gone any better.

All the vile abuse hurled at him by the small men and women of the media and the political establishment, the disgraceful BBC bias, the blatant hypocrisy of Tory and Labour that ferment conflict within our country every day.  Nigel dealt with them all with a smile and good grace.

He is stronger than ever.  The UKIP policies that he hinted at seem sensible and popular. Protest votes will be hardening into solid support.  Britain now despises the identikit Cameron, Miliband, Duncan Smith, Balls and the rest.  The chattering idiots at the Guardian and the BBC  and the Bullingdon Club associate members at the Telegraph and the Times.  They’re all as out of touch as each other.  The Fleet Street Mafia is as disgraced as the members of the cabinet and shadow cabinet.  We want none of you anymore!

Nigel Farage On Cannabis.

with 4 comments

Nigel Farage

I stood as a candidate for CLEAR Cannabis Law Reform in the 2012 Corby by-election. At the count I had the pleasure of speaking to Nigel on a number of occasions. He was nipping out to the car park for a cigarette and I was letting my dogs out of my car for a wee.

We got on very well and I found him truly charming and genuine. We talked about many things but of course I asked him about his views on cannabis. He agreed that present policy is “Barmy!” and that “Of course we should!” adopt a legalise, tax and regulate policy.

The really extraordinary thing about Nigel expressing these views is that they are unpopular with most UKIP supporters.  That marks him out as a very rare thing in UK politics – a man of true integrity.

Ridiculous Rotherham Council Must Face Severe Consequences

with 2 comments

Joyce Thacker, Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services at Rotherham Council

Rotherham Borough Council has removed three foster children from their foster parents because they belong to UKIP.

BBC story here.  Daily Telegraph story here.

The council has said that the children are “not indigenous white British” and that it had concerns about UKIP’s stance on immigration.  The couple themselves have said that Rotherham Council social workers had accused them of belonging to a “racist party”.

This is disgusting prejudice and discrimination in the name of political correctness, one of the most insidious and dangerous trends in our society.  I believe that such action should be subject to criminal prosecution in exactly the same way as racist conduct would be.

If it is a criminal offence to be racist then it must be equally serious falsely to accuse someone of the same.

I am not a member of UKIP but I have voted for them in the past and probably will do so again.  To describe its policies as racist is disgraceful and abusive.  It also demonstrates an absolute incompetence by Rotherham Council to manage communications and relationships properly.

If people are sent to prison for racist comments on Facebook and Twitter then I expect the same consequences for the council officials and social workers concerned in this case.

Complain to Rotherham Council here.

I Shall Vote UKIP On June 4th

leave a comment »

For two reasons:

1. Because I agree completely that we should withdraw from membership of the EU and establish trading agreements as an independent nation.

2. Because I want to send a message to the main parties showing my disgust for the venal and corrupt behaviour of so many MPs.

I shall vote Tory in the next general election because David Cameron is the only credible candidate for PM.
