They seemingly have so demeaned and befouled themselves they are unfit for purpose as EUroSceptics!
During an exchange of e-mails with a group of friends of a friend of mine’s son, who is 33 (with whom I have long discussed political matters and others), about the crisis in the EU, this comment was made by one of them on Nigel Farage:-
Farage clearly has a facility for theatre and oratory, but so do most well trained actors. The political role that Farage holds is the easiest role for a good orator to deliver. He will never be in government so won’t ever have to take responsibility for actually implementing any of his policies (a privileged position that I bet the Lib Dems wish they could return to!), he is only standing on one issue – Europe (although obviously a multifaceted and complex issue), he does not need to build bridges with any of the political class in Europe and can therefore bark from the sidelines without any damage to his political position.
Also, it is always easier to sound convincing when speaking against a topic than it is to defending a topic, which is why many unintelligent people enjoy complaining and holding cynical views, as it’s a cheap way of making those views sound more important than they actually are. This is also why defence lawyers are more respected and are paid more then prosecution lawyers, because their role is a more complex.
In short, Farage’s role in the European parliament is an orator’s *** *****. He can just stand up and let rip with pre rehearsed rhetorical speeches, particularly in the current climate, where his opponent, the EU, is on its knees and looking like a joke. I’d love to have a go at that! What a luxury to be able to look world leaders in the face, Merkel, Sarcozy, Blair, Brown etc. and be allowed to rant at them for five uninterrupted minutes at a time. You could charge 100k a minute to be able to do that!
I thought here is a young man who has had nothing to do with Nigel Farage or UKIP but is able to see Nigel Farage for exactly the type of person he is.
Nigel’s EUKIP may be good at rhetoric but it will NEVER achieve anything of substance.
Nigel Farage is a rabble rouser of some ability and clearly impresses a certain questionable strata of society but sadly he is without morality, ethics or any OQ or perceptible leadership qualities that can compete with his insecurity and self serving self interest.
To be fair Farage has managed to feature frequently recently on You Tube and Google Alerts but one wonders what it is hoped will be achieved with such antics? In a world population of over 7 Billion one or two Million – even 20 or 30 Million non specific hits on YouTube amounts to little more than an irrelevance, as it is clear from the comments it is largely preaching to the converted and the vile language and comments of the ‘Cult’ speak volumes – In fact it may well do more harm than good, let us not forget that statistics show that the most avidly watched channels on the internet are pornography!
Are the stunts and antics of Farage seen as littlr more than political pornography and comic relief? To judge by the comments of many of his foul mouthed and also sneeringly obsequious supporters it would seem so!
Unfortunately, largely due to the machinations of Farage and the self serving interests of his anointed claque, UKIP has NEVER attracted anyone of ethical and moral standing with political gravitas and ability who has been allowed to rise in the ranks.
That UKIP has such low grade MEPs and no one of ANY perceptible political talent amongst its leadership has been a product of Farage and his odious colleagues manipulation of eletion structures within UKIP – thus liars, scheisters and the self enriching self servers that in the main form their NEC, staff and leadership.
For all the fantasy fun of play politics that we see in commercial organisations maintaining the controversy of polls for profit – the truth is clear for all to see as UKIP has failed to gain the respect of the electorate and out of some 19,500 available offices by election in the governance structure UKIP has failed to get more than 30 elected seats!
A reflection of Farage and his leadership team I regret – UKIP desperately needs an ennema to clear out its current self serving structure – though to be fair they will stick like **** to a blanket in mutual support to ensure they can continue on their programme of self enrichment and agrandisement, at the expense of these United Kingdoms.
It is interesting to note that anyone who dares to criticise or discuss UKIP rather than worship them is rarely met with rational discussion but usually with ad hominem attacks, personalised abuse and underhand playground defamation – frequently leading to pack bravery fromthe UKIP Cult and often banning from circulatiomn of views – UKIP is so unable to defend its exorable behaviour that it has teams of sock puppets cohorts of cowards using irresponsible defamation to desperately defend their income stream!
By now after 20 years one would surely have expected them to understand the concept of debate and be able to defend their position impressively, rather than as they do by intimidation, abuse and lies. Astonishingly a member of UKIP NEC an MEP hopeful and candidate for The London Ass. Mick McGough has dragged the name of UKIP in the gutter by sending me, so my spam filter tells me!, over 6,000 offensive eMails in less than 2 weeks!
This is so typical of the low lifes who form UKIP leadership team and its cowardly sock puppets!
