UKIP Hypocrite! Farage pleads for leniency to the EU's Legal Affairs Committee
I promise to be good. I really do!
Yesterday afternoon, Nigel Farage appeared before the European Parliament's Legal Affairs Committee. He is trying to defend his parliamentary immunity, in order to overturn the disciplinary action taken against him by the President of the parliament following his abusive outburst against Herman van Rompuy.
It did not go well for him as the Committee decided that they wanted nothing to do with this shabby attempt. The matter has been referred upwards, where it is unlikely to be well received.
Farage claims - or at least he used to claim - that he does not recognise the legitimacy of the European Parliament. How times have changed. Like the playground runt, running to hide behind Nanny, he cuts a sorry figure as he pleads for leniency from the very institution he was so pleased to denigrate.
