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.

    Was the referendum result good for the union, but bad for Labour?

    Was this the high water mark of secessionist sentiment in Scotland? At first it may seem an outlandish idea. Scottish Nationalism has been a riding tide for over thirty years – from fringe cause, to Westminster representation, to a Scottish parliament, minority government and then majority government. But something also broke in the movement this week. The SNP dominated Yes campaign ran to a large extent on the idea that if Scotland voted for independence, the hated Tories would never […]

    Gordon Brown rules out return to frontline politics

    After his spectacular return to prominence in the final weeks of the referendum campaign – with many crediting his interventions as crucial in securing a final swing towards the No campaign – rumours began to circulate that Gordon Brown might make a more permanent return to frontline politics. His barnstorming speech on Wednesday in particular reminded many in the Labour Party of what they once admired so much in the former PM. Yet today – as he spoke publicly about […]

    Miliband outlines housebuilding plans – including “New Homes Corporations” and public sector housing

    Last year Ed Miliband committed Labour to ensuring 200,000 homes are built each year by 2020. Whether or not that target is ambitious enough has been hotly contested over the past year, but as he arrived in Manchester for Labour conference today, Ed Miliband outlined how that target will be met – as the first of a series of “Labour’s plan for Britain’s Future” announcements. The proposals – the first to be revealed from an interim report of the party’s […]

    We should have high expectations of all fathers

    Three months ago, on Father’s Day, ICM released a poll showing that two out of three British adults think the role of fathers is undervalued. I find this deeply worrying, but sadly unsurprising. There is no doubt that some progress has been made in recent years: many fathers are spending more time with their children, while the ability to balance work and parenthood is an option for an increasing number of mothers. But, while of course welcome, these trends should […]
