With Hague a sitting target on EU renegotiation what does Farage do?

Politics needs serious people for serious times.  With Concrete Willy trying to sneak old, rejected suggestions past the media to appear like a new thinking on the faux renegotation, Nigel Farage should be showing leadership and setting the agenda by exposing the Tory fraud and convincing people to support a referendum ‘no’ campaign.

But it seems the blessed Nigel is having more fun in the self publicist game, playing up to the stereotype of a womaniser who likes a drink or two while looking like an utter buffoon posing for ludicrously posed photos…

One can’t help but wonder if the paucity of thought out policy on the UKIP website and the absence of detail about just how UKIP would extract the UK from the EU while preserving access to the market we would be leaving, is because Farage is having too much fun as a media personality to do politics.

No doubt the Faragista will rush forth with excuses in defence of the blessed Nigel, but voters will only wait so long to see some substance before concluding he’s all talk, just like the politicians he claims to be so different from.

    A very intriguing article directing attention to certain stubborn patterns in our days politics and the way how all politicians – and everyone – with at least a rational agenda is being ridiculed and discredited by the deepest layers of corrupt politics and mass media.

    I happen to be one of those passionately against the system run by a profoundly corrupt political class & msm, and have no interests vested in any party or party leader in any country, and although I try hard, I can’t spot any politician who is alive, who is in office, has more than zero influence in his country and is totally altruistically and nobly serving this otherwise pathologically selfish, hopeless and cynical mankind. If someone can spot a hero like that, please notify me – I would love to witness such living miracle.

    I happen to not be a Faragista (if I properly grasp what that is supposed to mean), therefore my comment is not meant to “rush forth with excuses in defence of the blessed Nigel” nevertheless so far he is the ONLY ONE politician with substantial influence in European politics who has pointed out the most relevant facts regarding the EU since the conception of this new totalitarian regime (a lot of details can be found on my blog), and who does have an agenda to take his country out of the EU, from the hands of the most corrupt and dangerous collection of political parasites of our times.

    What good is an agenda without a plan? What good is an agenda when he spends his time self promoting while ignoring major opportunities to expose the supposed renegotiation as a sham?

    Whatever happened to (woman’s) intuition AM? Anyone could see Farage was a twit just by looking at him! I said as much months ago and was pilloried by Faragista (and by you). Truth is, as dear old Oscar said ‘only the shallow don’t judge by appearances…’ -In Farage’s case, one need look no further than the kipper tie and cheap suit!

    Neat! At the same time?

    The Archbishop of Canterbury once said: “Fucking and wanking — in a very real sense….

    I turned off at that point.

    Meanwhile, the great sages sit in the background sniping at Farage…..

    Funny how you accuse those who like Nigel of being “faragistas” but can’t see in yourself and your supporters the other side of the coin – an embittered platoon of anti-Farage people frantically grinding their personal axes and who seek every opportunity to badmouth the guy. I take Farage exactly as I find him and so do a lot of people I know and they would probably see in these pics what I do: a guy who appears not to take himself too seriously enjoying a bit of good fun. How refreshing!

    People who know Farage slightly better than you do also take him exactly as we find him. Away from the carefully cultivated public image, he is an egocentric bully, an intellectual lightweight, jealous of those close to him who might outshine him, and totally devoid of loyalty to his staff and supporters.

    On that basis, those who see the man for what he is are also conscious of a man who, on balance, is doing more harm than good, holding back the eurosceptic movement as a credible intellectual force (which it must be if it is to win the battle of ideas).

    Further, we do not belong to the school which believes that, unlike all other politicians, Farage must be exempted from all scrutiny and criticism.

    Thus to offer an antidote to the gushing eulogies of uncritical supporters is hardly “frantically grinding personal axes”. It is simply part of the normal weft and weave of political discourse, which seems remarkably absent inside the increasingly intolerant UKIP.

    Such a shame we cannot all get on long enough to see us out of the EU. I feel the 6 demands would be better put to an independent government of this country rather than one tied to the EU.
