Nigel Farage goes on barely coherent rant

So a day ending in "y".

So why is he still showing up? Oh right, to leach off Brussels as long as he can.

"Genuine democratic parties of opposition," of course, is code for Russian front parties.

Racist and probable Russian front.

Farage, the world is moving into the competition between huge markets and powers. You're going to have the US, China, and India with which to compete economically. China is a rising military power. A European continent divided into individual little states based on tribes emerging from the Dark Ages is not going to be an effective way to have any real power and influence as the 21st Century moves on. Sure, the UK isn't exactly a small power, but it's also certainly not going to be much when compared to the more unified great powers of the 21st Century, including, hopefully, a more unified European center of power.

The US would do better in a world where a democratic Europe actually has real power and influence in the world. The people of Europe would do better in a world where they have real power and influence. Want to make Europe more democratic? Well, then fight to ensure that the EU institutions are more democratic rather than tearing it down to go back to smaller tribes. He's a member of a democratically elected parliament arguing that its not democratic enough? Create a popularly elected executive for the EU. Then you have an elected parliament and an elected executive. Starts to become difficult then to argue its not a democratic institution. Too large to be a democracy? Tell that to India.

I'm surprised the Farage wasn't offered a cabinet post in the Trump administration. His constant BS, deflection and lying would fit right in. D2S would think Farage's accent was from Maine, Washington state or somewhere other than New York.

What a balanced, nuanced article.

Some of the most successful Russian spies were British. Philby, the Cambridge Five, Melita Norwood.

Yeah it's funny how Brexit Bob kept assuring us that UKIP wasn't needed anymore yet Face McPunchy just won't go away.

Why it's almost like this whole thing was just a scam.

Why?  The Russians have no need of him anymore.

Voiceofreason01: Racist and probable Russian front.


Y'know, I think people like this don't start out as Russian puppets. They start out crusading for their favorite hobby horse, and if they become prominent and successful enough, Russia gives them a helping hand, much like industry lobbyists donate to the campaign of whichever candidate is already favorable to that industry.

So to those of you who are up-and-coming in politics: if Russia comes calling, it's time to rethink your favorite policy positions. If they think you're worth funding, it's because your favorite policy positions are good for Russia - which means said policies are probably not as good for your country as you think.

I have to wonder: how many of these Russian stooges actually know that they're advancing Russian interests?  I could imagine that in most cases, the handlers only identify themselves as concerned citizens who happen to have access to vast sums of money.

They're probably don't, at all. They're just useful idiots with incredibly regressive ideals of nationalism in a globalize world, and they don't realize Russia is merely helping them sabatoge themselves.

Barely coherent?

Must have taken some communications classes.
 
2017-09-13 09:08:40 PM  
It's Express.

None of it is worksafe.

Also... is there such a thing as a partial mouthectomy?

That dude's gob is unnaturally huge.

I'm sure there is some mouthless third world child waiting for a donor they could transplant the excess to.

Hell... might even be able to cover several mouthless children in need.

So I guess the Express is the retarded Tory version of the Washington Times?

That's the Daily Mail. More intelligent Tories read the Telegraph. The Express is the UKIP rag.

Farage is just a symptom of the unique brand of arrogance and overblown sense of self-importance that is a characteristic of the UK's collective national psyche.  While the UK obsesses, The EU is already moving on.

Why would you say that? Does Trump represent the entire US population? Of course not.

Don't be bigoted. It's unbecoming.

He'd be paid even if he didn't show up I believe.
