Ah Nigel, you’re a one, you really are… March 2, 2017

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?

The media have been kind to Farage. It is rare they really challenge him, mostly they follow him around to pubs where they film him having a pint, “man of the people” style. Anyway Paul Nuttall, serial liar, leads UKIP!

As has been mentioned before, the contrast between the UK media’s coverage of Farage and Corbyn is quite revealing.

He’s doing a Wilders. Or immitating him. That creature is also happy to stoke up hate against immigrants resulting increase in attacks against anyone ‘foreign’-seeming.

But Wilders has gone into hiding.

They’re like the hangers-on in the playground egging the bully on to keep kicking the victim-de-jour, but leg it when people turn on the bully.

They can incite it but can’t take it. And can play the victims at the same time.

hey! there’s a bed in trump tower for him if he really is that worried. that way he’ll merge in to a background filled with crazies and no-one will notice him.
