    Oh, for just one person of this calibre in Australian and New Zealand politics…just one.

    • James Stephenson says:

      Unfortunately the likes of Farage only manage to get elected to the European parliament when people are prepared to protest-vote in decent numbers.

      Come General Election tim,e all the old problems come back around, so you end up with the HoC stuffed with careerist, bumlicking, party-lie-toeing, expenses-rorting wankers.

      • KG says:

        Up to a point, that’s true James. But in today’s Daily Mail, I see that Cameron is being pressured -as a direct result of UKIP’s rising popularity- into changing his EU stance. :grin:

  2. Redbaiter says:

    Well, there are one or two, (Cory Bernardi see what happened to him?)) but they are far outnumbered and bullied into silence by the craven cowards in the majority.

    • KG says:

      Fair point, RB. But the fact they can be bullied into silence indicates to me a problem with their strategy.

    • The Gantt Guy says:

      What I find disappointing is that the good ones (Bernardi, David Garrett, etc.) allow themselves to be bullied so easily. Both Bernardi and Garrett capitulated over utter non-issues. I understand *why* they did it, but I do find it disappointing that neither of them fought a little harder and dirtier.

    UK Independence Party, Carol. Farage was elected to the European “Parliament”.

  4. Thank you KG-
    Just got back from Google-ing Farage – WOW-
    The UK is lucky to have him-
    I pray for his safety-
    Seems he was injured in a plane crash-
    I am always suspect of those-
    to whit- I read on and it told of a pilot of one of the planes had made death threats on Farage–

    Remember Ann Romney’s life was in danger -plane mal- function–
    After that- Romney became a ‘whimp’ on the issues–

    Don’t trust the Dark Side with brave folks like Farage..

    “Don’t trust the Dark Side with brave folks like Farage..”
    Me neither.

  6. KG says:

    A good interview with Farage here. Unlike the BBC, the American interviewer did a damn good job:
    ‘Nigel Farage on the Rise of UKIP, the Fall of Europe, and the Parallels for the US’

    “Just who the hell do you people think you are?” says it all about politicians in the West. One day you will all be adorning lamp posts. :popcorn

    “One day you will all be adorning lamp posts”
    I pray you’re right, Mawm. On that day, I’ll raise a glass to whoever strings them up. :cheers

  9. I can’t add much to that except to say we downunder desperately need voices like him and Daniel Hannan–remember this one from him on Brown
