Ah Nigel, you’re a one, you really are… March 2, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I had to smile at Nigel Farage’s complaint last week:
Nigel Farage, the former Ukip leader, has given an interview to Piers Morgan for a Piers Morgan’s Life Stories programme being broadcast on ITV this evening. In it Farage says he is living like a “virtual prisoner” and is “frightened” to leave his home because of the way the media has “demonised” Ukip.
Referring to Ukip members with extremist or racist views whose comments have been highlighted by the media, Farage says:
It is because of these irrelevant people, who held no position, they happened to join an organisation, and because of these irrelevant people being demonised by liberal media, I’ve had to live years, frankly, of being frightened of walking out into the street all because the media picked out these people. And because of these people, attempted to demonise me and give me a bad name.
And you’re surprised three years on, when I have to live like a virtual prisoner, that I’m not happy about it? Will I ever forgive the British media for what they’ve done to me? No.
‘Irrelevant people’. ‘No position’. ‘who just happened to join an organisation’…. er… yes, an organisation that you’ve lead and been a pivotal figure in. That’s an astounding and self-serving analysis on his part, isn’t it?
