UKIP: Nigel Farage creates a bit of publicity for himself
Nigel Farage has created a bit of publicity for himself after he attacked Van Rompuy in the EU Parliament. Van Rompuy is the EU president. See: LINK
Sky News also mentioned it. During their report they described Farage as being the leader of UKIP. Poor old Lord Pearson didn’t get a mention!
During the rant he also felt the need to insult the whole of Belgium. Is it now UKIP official policy to insult the people of a entire nation?
You may recall that Bloom upset the people of New Zealand after he praised the French for bombing a ship. The ship happened to be in a New Zealand port at the time. See: LINK
Farage also mentioned that democracy was “not popular with you lot’”. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! So would Nigel like to comment on the lack of democracy in UKIP?
For instance, he scraped the latest NEC elections, removed democratically elected NEC members after they dared to disagree with him, rigged the MEP selection process and censored the UKIP members forum after various members spoke favourably of Nikki Sinclaire.
But why did Nigel suddenly decide to make such a brazen attack? His other recent attacks have all been rather muted.
Could it be that in the event of an investigation by the British police, he can say that EU officials are picking on him for political reasons? See: LINK
