    Former UKIP and Brexit leader Nigel Farage has lost faith in Theresa May's ability to guide the United Kingdom out of the EU. The prime minister, Farage believes, is so weak that she'll end up being forced to organize new elections, which will then undoubtedly result in a victory for "the utterly clueless and dangerously vain Jeremy Corbyn." That scenario is clearly what the EU is aiming for. According to Farage, EU "president" Jean-Claude Juncker and his friends "appear to have calculated that if Mrs. May can hang on in Downing Street a while longer, the weaker she will be...
  • Nigel Farage DEFENDS Donald Trump over his Britain First re-tweets (tr)

    Nigel Farage today defended Donald Trump's decision to re-tweet Britain First insisting the 'liberal elite' had over-reacted. The ex-Ukip leader used an appearance on the BBC Andrew Marr Show to claim the reaction has been 'out of all proportion' to the offence. The President's decision to re-tweet three messages from the far right Britain First group has been widely condemned. The episode has triggered the worst public clashes between US and UK leaders in memory. Prime Minister Theresa May launched a rare direct attack on Mr Trump, branding him 'wrong' for his tweets - prompting a bizarre cross-Atlantic spat. The...

    A leaflet available at UKIP's conference has compared the "alternative lifestyle" of gay people to that of Hitler and the Yorkshire Ripper. The leaflet, titled 'Homosexuality - the real alternative', was available on a stand this morning for the Support 4 The Family group at UKIP's annual get-together in Torquay. The conservative group did not write the leaflet, but does oppose gay marriage and transgender rights, and campaigns against what it calls "homosexual activism and gender bending at school." Signed by two Belfast clergyman, the leaflet says: "The phrase 'abusers of themselves with mankind' in the Bible... refers to the...
  • Black Lives Matter & UKIP – On the Same Side?

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Although the mainstream media would suggest that Black Lives Matter and UKIP are polar opposites, at the core, they are both very much motivated by the same factors. And the fact that the establishment seeks to keep these very real grievances on different battle lines tells us even more about their shared beliefs. It is, as always, divide and rule. It’s well-known that both sides possess a fair share of idiots among their ranks (as does every political organization and pressure group), but their core beliefs have a relevant and important role to play. What our “leaders” don’t want us...

    Nigel Farage, ex-leader of UKIP and a chief Brexit campaigner, will address Germany’s far-right AfD in Berlin on Friday. Farage reportedly “accepted without hesitation” the invitation to speak at the rally. Farage is also scheduled to take part in a press conference with AfD deputy leader and European parliamentarian Beatrix von Storch — the granddaughter of Hitler’s finance minister, Lutz von Krosigk, and a member of Farage’s group in the European parliament. He will speak about the “development of the EU, Brexit and increased citizen participation in the EU,” von Storch wrote on Facebook in August. Farage spearheaded the Brexit...

    The UK Independence Party (UKIP) leadership candidate, John Rees-Evans proposes to reduce “unnecessary population” by paying British Indians to leave the UK using the £12bn funds from the vital foreign aid budget. Under the proposed scheme he wants to remove a million people every year using the foreign aid budget. The scheme would give dual-nationals £9,000 plus healthcare benefits to “return to their country of origin”, reported Daily Mirror. Scheme Will Create Jobs in UK He used examples of Indians and Tanzanians, to claim that his scheme would “create jobs in this country, reduce unnecessary population and reduce the strain...
  • UKIP MEP: 'We Must Rediscover Our Radical Core'

    One of the saddest aspects of Britain's election disaster was the horrible performance of UKIP, the party formerly led by Nigel Farage (and during the campaign by Paul Nuttall who has since resigned). Although UKIP played a prominent role in the campaign leading up to the Brexit referendum last year, the party's raison d'etat seems to have disappeared when voters backed Britain's exit from the European Union. Or so many voters clearly felt. UKIP Member of the European Parliament Bill Etheridge begs to differ, however. Writing for The Telegraph, Etheridge argues that UKIP lost because the party wasn't radical enough....
  • Nigel Farage is 'person of interest' in FBI investigation into Trump and Russia

    The Guardian ^ | June 1, 2017
    Nigel Farage is a “person of interest” in the US counter-intelligence investigation that is looking into possible collusion between the Kremlin and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Guardian has been told. Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the former Ukip leader had raised the interest of FBI investigators because of his relationships with individuals connected to both the Trump campaign and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder whom Farage visited in March. WikiLeaks published troves of hacked emails last year that damaged Hillary Clinton’s campaign and is suspected of having cooperated with Russia through third parties, according to recent congressional...

    On June the 8th, the British people go to the polls to vote for a new government. Most indications are showing a Conservative Party victory under Prime Minister, Theresa May, who leads the Labour Party in polls by quite a margin. UKIP was the party under Nigel Farage that not only forced the referendum, but was instrumental in the Brexit win. They have released their Manifesto to some controversy with many in the Establishment calling it “divisive” and “dangerous”. What do you think?

    The future is looking bright for Britain's populist and patriotic U.K. Independence Party. According to a new poll, the party's new leader -- Paul Nuttall -- is on track to win the by-election in Stoke Central on February 23. That's significant because Stoke is one of Britain's most important Labour strongholds. If the socialists lose their parliamentary seat to UKIP, it's a sure sign that a populist revolution is coming in the next national elections. According to the poll, Nuttall is currently enjoying a ten-point lead over his competitor from the Labour Party. The by-election is set to take place...

    ritish politician Nigel Farage, who campaigned for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, will attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration this month, Reuters reported Thursday. Farage, the former leader of the U.K. Independent Party and a vocal Trump backer, will be a guest of Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant (R). "The governor of Mississippi has invited me and I'm there for a few days and it's going to be a great, historic event," Farage told Sky News. "In America they've had a political revolution and it's complete; the problem in Britain is our revolution is not complete because the same...

    Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election: Dr Caroline Johnson holds seat for Tories as Labour heads towards 'electoral disaster'A senior Labour MP has warned his party is heading for "electoral disaster" after the Conservatives stormed to victory in the Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election. Ukip emerged as the runner-up to the Tory candidate Caroline Johnson, who will be the new MP after winning a landslide 17,570 votes. Ukip's Victoria Ayling secured just 4,426. Labour fell from second place at the 2015 general election to fourth with only 3,300 votes, behind the Liberal Democrats who pulled in 3,600.

    NIGEL Farage says he cannot leave his house without security after Brexit and Donald Trump’s US presidential election victory. The interim Ukip leader has received death threats and just last week was confronted during a night out. The revelation came as the 52-year-old Brexiteer refused to rule out backing fascist National Front leader Marine Le Pen for the French presidency. In his most explosive interview to date, the controversial MEP said he was “on the fence” over whether far-Right Eurosceptic Le Pen’s election was a price worth paying to bring down the EU, saying: “If she wins, it’s over.” Revealing...

    Humilated Theresa May is now begging for a meeting with Donald Trump before Christmas after being shown up by Nigel Farage. The UKIP leader was the first foreign politician to meet the President-elect after his shock victory at the polls. But Mrs May insisted relations with the Trump camp were “working well” and said they would meet “at the earliest opportunity”. Mr Farage is furious after his bid to become a special envoy to liaise with Mr Trump was rejected. The PM’s spokeswoman said: “The President-elect has talked about enjoying the same relationship that Reagan and Thatcher did. "I don’t...

    Theresa May is facing a growing Cabinet backlash over her decision to dismiss Nigel Farage despite him being the only British politician to meet with Donald Trump since his victory. The Daily Telegraph understands a number of members of the Cabinet and other Government ministers believe the Prime Minister’s allies have made a mistake by referring to Mr. Farage as an “irrelevance”. One Cabinet source also accused Downing Street of having “made no plan” for a Trump victory, despite Government claims that officials have for months been holding talks with members of his inner circle. Mrs. May has made clear...
