UKIP: The Sunday Times on Farage

We are reminded of the UKIP MEP who recently said of Farage:

"Never underestimate his stupidity or his talent for self-promotion".

From The Sunday Times:

Nigel Farage is an embarrassing figure who does not speak for Britain

David Aaronovitch once invented the perfect definition for the noun farage. Taken from barrage, out of the French barrer, meaning to obstruct, and from the Latin farrago meaning a mess, a farage is a bombardment of nonsense.

The once-upon-a-time leader of UKIP has been at it again. Addressing Herman Van Rompuy, the former Prime Minister of Belgium and leader of the European Council, Mr Farage began by saying “I don’t want to be rude but . . .” and then continued “you have the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk.” It would clearly not be wise to cross Mr Farage when he does want to be rude.

Mr Farage, with his characteristic charm, went on to describe Belgium as a “non-country” and then, displaying the full set of prejudices, patronised a Belgian MEP who asked him to apologise by describing her as “very sweet and rather pretty”. The hilarious Mr Farage is not done yet. He has been summoned to see the European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek next Tuesday and is considering wearing shorts and a schoolboy cap when he goes to the headmaster’s study. What a card. It is always embarrassing (but never funny) when unfunny people try to be amusing.

In his rant at Mr Van Rompuy, Mr Farage boasted that “I can speak on behalf of the majority of British people in saying that we don’t know you, we don’t want you . . .” This newspaper did not want a leader of the European Council either. But no, Mr Farage, you do not speak for the majority of the British people. They would not dream of being so pathetically rude and neither do they relish being represented by the political equivalent of Alan Partridge.
