Nigel Farage gets a taste of his own medicine

23rd November, 2012 11:10 am

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.

    The only abdication Theresa May cares about is David Cameron’s

    By now most of you have probably seen the incredibly shrill Mail on Sunday front page. If you haven’t – here it is: As is often the case, the size of the typeface used in the headline is inversely proportional to how serious the piece is. I’m particularly taken by the ludicrous analogy that Theresa May has chosen – as were all of the people that got #worstcrisissincetheabdication trending on Twitter today. I’m no fan of the Nationalists (indeed, I’ve […]

    William Hague’s ‘Zinedine Zidane moment’

    William Hague’s plot to oust the Speaker last month was not just grubby, it was a final act of a desperate Tory campaign. With the polls at a deadlock in the countdown to the General Election, now we can see the failed Tory coup was about electoral arithmetic rather than a petty squabble. And these desperate tactics could cost them dear. During the death throes of the last Parliament, when most MPs had packed their bags and left for the […]

    Ed Miliband speech to Labour’s International Development rally

    Speaking at an International Development rally in London this afternoon, Ed Miliband said: Thank you. I’d like to thank Ross Kemp for hosting us today.

Let me start today by saying that all of our thoughts are with the people of Nepal. We have seen truly […]

    Umunna says there’s a “virus of racism” that runs through UKIP

    Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna – who has been one of the most strident critics of UKIP in the Labour ranks – has attacked Farage’s party in the Independent today. Umunna – who last week said that Farage and his party have “a problem with race”, turned his fire on UKIP by saying that there is a “virus of racism which runs through that party”: “The likes of Ukip don’t like what modern Britain is. They claim to love Britain, […]

  • Featured Video Ed Miliband rattles Boris Johnson on the Marr sofa

    Ed Miliband rattles Boris Johnson on the Marr sofa

    Ed Miliband gave what I thought was his best and clearest Marr interview this morning – including stating in the clearest terms yet that there won’t be a Labour/SNP deal after the election. He was also far more assertive and confident than he’s been in previous encounters. But by far the best session of the Marr show – and perhaps the best clash of the election so far – was Ed Miliband taking on a clearly rattled Boris Johnson afterwards and […]
