Nigel Farage gets a taste of his own medicine

It’s not often we approvingly post videos of Lib Dems, but these two recent attacks on Nigel Farage in the European Parliament are worth watching:

Being ranted at in the chamber? Farage is getting a taste of his own medicine

    Got to admit that Nigel Farage is one of politics’ more entertaining characters. Although I don’t agree with a lot of UKIP policies (the climate change denial, as well as Roger Helmer’s dash-for-gas stance are just swivel eyed) he is about the only non-mainstream politician who’s actually a good laugh. Never a dull moment seeing the man ripping into the three main parties. Some of his assertions are silly but funny. You couldn’t make it up when he called David Cameron a social democrat for starters.

    Herman Van Rompuy, Jose Manuel Barroso and Baroness Ashton always seem to be in UKIP’s line of attack, lol.

    Well deserved. Farage is charming and entertaining but he really is as bad as all the people he so freely criticizes.

    One month until the referendum – then we can begin the task of bringing our nation back together

    For these past three years, the referendum has put everything but the constitution on hold in Scotland politics. But one month from today we will go to the polls. Postal votes go out in less than two weeks. The so-called game-changers for the Yes campaign: the White Paper; the European elections; the Bannockburn anniversary; the Commonwealth Games; have come and gone, and yet the game remains largely unchanged. The Scottish Social Attitudes survey released last week – the gold standard […]

    When it comes to foreign policy, Labour need to be audacious

    Diplomacy is the art of giving all parties in a conflict what they need, if not what they want. Right now, the underpaid, mismanaged FCO [Foreign and Commonwealth Office] staff are getting neither what they need nor what they want. Britain is weaker and less safe as a result. So writes the Editor of The Independent, Amol Rajan, in Thursday’s London Evening Standard, in a stinging account of the marginalisation of a once great department of state (full disclosure: for […]

    Generation Y vote – don’t tell young people to vote, involve them in politics

    Ed Miliband has spoken frequently of our concern that the age old shared commitment to each generation of children having better life chances than their parents is at risk like never before. Throughout history, intergenerational advance has been at the heart of Labour’s mission and is an aspiration shared by Britain’s mainstream majority. Of course, in some families and communities deprivation has passed from generation to generation. Where that is the reality a burning commitment to support people to break […]

    Labour’s drive to engage with young voters

    In the 9 months leading up to election day, considerable time will be spent at Labour HQ and elsewhere working out which groups of voters are most likely to vote Labour. As we’ve reported before, young people are overwhelmingly likely to back Labour – the problem is that they don’t vote. 41% of 17-21 year olds polled said they’d vote Labour, but 59% said they wouldn’t bother to vote. Unfortunately, the response from activists and politicians alike to such polling is often […]

    New education secretary Nicky Morgan is “continuity Gove”, says Hunt

    Today, Shadow Education Secretary Tristram Hunt will give a speech in which he will say,  although Michael Gove might be gone, the Tories are continuing to pursue his failed education policy. Hunt will, in particular, highlight the government’s failure to address overfilled classrooms – despite having pledged in their manifesto that if they were in government, schools would be smaller, as would class sizes. He will reveal figures that show 40,000 primary school children are in classes where there are more than 36 […]
