    An unlikely date: -

    Rachel Johnson and Nigel Farage: -

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39963363

    But despite disagreeing with him, she apparently has always had a soft spot for good old Nige!

    Cheers

    Hello Nigel, welcome back. We've all missed you. Not the most auspicious of occasions but, I'm sure you'll breathe new life into a re-vitalised UKIP.

    Jumping the gun a bit, he hasn't said for sure he'll do It, unless you have some inside info?

    It's a very long way back, and I think it's too late. Time to let the kippers fade disgracefully away

    With few donors and 370 lost deposits to pay, he can't draw much to help his personal money troubles so he may chose to walk away.

    "...may choose to walk away.."

    Nothing like tempting fate eh Trekkie ? I wonder if Nigel has thought of joining the Tories ?

    What about if, on the Road to Wigan (Pier) (subtle reference to master socialist Eric Blair) he had an epiphany and joined Labour and ousted Corbyn ? Where oh where would you then find a home Trekkie, Oh the joy of speculation !

    Wrong again John,
    It would't bother me in the slightest, if he had an epiphany he would have realised the error of his ways

    Why would do it, he left when the party was riding the crest of its popularity. I cannot see what he could possibly do to turn the situation around.

    Farage is not interested in winning seats, you misunderstand him. He's more interested in ensuring a clean break from the EU by entering the debate.

    How will him entering the debate make one iota of difference? Please explain. To "ensure" anything you need political clout.

    Simply writing in the torygraph adding to JG's infamous column inches does not constitute power.

    The tories won't touch him, Labour certainly won't touch him, both will do their level best to marginalise him as an irritant. Whether you like it or not, the Leave Campaign is old news.

    The only people to take him seriously are those who already sympathise with him, and as Dacre and Murdoch have found over the past week, their influence doesn't extend as far as they thought.

    For a significant percentage of the population he is a turn off.

    Any person as formidably singleminded as Nigel, with his nationwide popularity, exercises the power of publicity, in his case to a degree almost unmatched since perhaps the time of Churchill.

    Of course the Tories and Labour don't like him, he steals what should be their thunder ! He is so far, the single most important politician of this century. You won't like that Trekkie, but that is a fact.

    What nationwide popularity do you imagine he has John? At the highest point UKIP, with him as leader, gained 12% of the vote. Now admittedly some people who voted Tory and a number of labour supporters as well might like him, but really not enough to suggest he is now as popular as you would wish him to be.

    Of all of my friends, at least 1/2 of whom voted tory as far as I could guess, only one has a good word to say about him. This person has very similar views to you as exposed on here so perhaps he could come and join you in a fanclub of two?

    As I have said before, you cannot extrapolate what you see in the type of papers you read to the population as a whole. Last Thursday night should have convinced you of that.

    We'll see what the future holds. I do not think that Nigel's day is yet done. We'll see. But you especially will hear me crowing very loudly should his star again gain the ascendant.

    You mean these kind of newspapers trekbuster? I find them, as evidenced here, to be rather inaccurate and somewhat laughable.

    John..........Let him be. Let him go off into the sunset and enjoy a happy retirement (well, at least from politics). !!!

    He has done what he set out to do i.e. have a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU.

    Yes. Singlehandedly. Which makes him thus far, the single most notable politician of this century.

    The 'deadbeats' who infest this forum would sooner cut their throats than agree with that !

    Single handed? Really?

    I assume your are Living through your own deluded fantasy bromance with Farage Gump John to think so.
    Saying something time after time does not make it true.

    The 'braindeads' who infest this forum would rather hang themselves than agree with that!

    I guess it was inevitable that once he was no longer leader and having to pretend to be a statesman his true colours would show.....

    Nothing too trivial for the bankrupt (because few buy it) rag to feature. On a point of accuracy, I've always understood that Hjalmar Schacht was the German finance minister - or, one of them.

    A 'Far Right' rally eh?



    It always makes me chuckle when UKIP and the like are referred to as the 'far right' by the lefty press and voters.

    So what does that make the BNP and Britain First then?

    (Funny how the mainstream media has forgotten about these parties, which before Brexit were always labeled and considered to be far right?)

    Cheers

    Paul

    No idea. Maybe it's the press who have realised that a) there are subtleties b) xenophobia isn't the sole preserve of the right and c) liberalism does not a leftie make any more than illiberaliism makes a righty.

    None of this 'makes' racists anything more or less than they already are

    Paul,

    Thanks for posting that clip. I don't think that Mutti will be quaking - more's the pity. AFD have some way to go, and the Germans have their own interpretation of the meaning of conservatism !

    Yes, thanks for posting. It did raise a much-needed laugh, seeing the kind of audience this 'populist' twit has been reduced to.

    Popular Front of Judea indeed. And what was his message? Ordinary German Workers.. blah.. need bilateral deals... blah...

    Yes Nigel. The sort that were in place until.. no, I can hear heads being rammed into sand.

    Oh yes, and criticise the press for trying to pull them out again.

    What on earth does 'Mainstream media' mean, anyway? As John likes to remind us gloatingly most Brits like to read anti-left and anti-liberal propaganda as the bulk of their current affairs intake. So it can't mean that.

    Farage's achievement was to frighten Cameron to call the ill judged referendum in the way he did, which incidentally was more to placate the swivel eyed mob in the Tory camp.

    Suppose you could call that a success, but now he has the popularity of scurvy or some other deficiency disease, unfortunately he is very much a promoter of deficiency, not particularly attached to the truth and with the charisma of last weeks salad, never liked the man, always struck me as a mouthy git more concerned with self promotion than anything else.

    Incidentally would have felt the same about the guy if he had been just as rabid pro-EU, pushing for greater union and more EU control, never had the slightest trust in the man.

    But as EU law is changing in 2019 to curb such activity it certainly explains his passion to leave the EU.

    Self-righteous media headline. But as we constantly have to remind ourselves he is doing nothing illegal. Tax avoidance has been practiced since taxes were created and continues to be so from the Farages of this world to the handyman paid in cash to avoid declaring his income.
