What do you prefer: the insult or the factual truth?

Michael Ezra from Harry’s Place can’t tell the difference and gets it all backwards:

Nigel Farage gives the average rent-a-quote MP or MEP a bad name. He has always confused personal insults with serious politics.

Well, he is good at insults

Nigel Farage , Member of the European Parliament and former leader of UKIP, is on Question Time this evening. Yesterday, he was performing for the European Parliament:

Some choice phrases in the tirade of insults Farage hurled at  Herman Van Rompuy, the former Belgian Prime Minister chosen to lead the European Council:

I don’t want to be rude but, really, you have the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk.

The question I want to ask, that we are all going to ask is: who are you? I’d never heard of you, nobody in Europe had ever heard of you. I would like to ask you President: who voted for you?

I sense, though that you’re competent and capable and dangerous and I have no doubt that it is your intention to be the quiet assassin of European democracy and of the European nation states, you appear to have a loathing for the very concept of the existence of nation states. Perhaps that is because you come from Belgium which, of course, is pretty much a non-country.

Sir, you have no legitimacy in this job at all and I can say with confidence that I can speak on behalf of the majority of British people in saying that we don’t know you, we don’t want you and the sooner you are put out to grass, the better.

I don’t know why my comment was blocked, so I post it here again:

You got it backwards: The insult is,  that Herman Van Rompuy is imposed on us. The truth is, that Rompuy is an assassin of European democracy and of the European nation states, that he appears to have a loathing for the very concept of the existence of nation states, that he is exactly what nobody wants and that he needs to be kicked out of the EU parliament, asap.

The Tundra Tabloids has a nice take on it:

Charisma of a damp rag” and the appearance of a “low-grade bank clerk.”

  1. Old humpty dumpty shouldn’t have to put up with this for much longer, as with any luck Nigel will win a seat in parliament at the next election and then he can liven up proceedings there. as for the european parliament, it’s just a replacement for the Kremlin!

  2. Every word of Nigel Farage’s is true. I watched Van Rompuy’s acceptance speech on the day he became President of the despicable European Union. His cold fish-eyes sent shivers down my spine.

    A dangerous little nonentity of a man whose goal is One World. With him as head-honcho, no doubt.

  3. This seems to be the changing of times, when wrong people are put in jobs of trust and responsibility. If more people like Nigel don’t get up and expose these mongrels, it will be too late afterwards and we will only have ourselves to blame.
