Obviously, it’s been widely reported that Nigel Farage resigned towards the end of last year from UKIP citing the decision of Gerard Batten his successor as UKIP leader to appoint Tommy Robinson as a party adviser.
My opinion as to the reason Farage resigned from UKIP is that with the current UKIP leader’s decision to have a closer association with Tommy Robinson it obliterated UKIP’s veneer of middle-class respectability Nigel Farage had attempted to craft, when resigning from the party Farage said of Batten’s leadership that he was wanting to turn UKIP into the successor to British National Party (BNP), well my reckoning is UKIP have always been the successor to the BNP just they’re the middle-class BNP, the BNP in a blazer & tie, the party of middle-class bigots for middle-class, yep Nige had wanted UKIP to be a party for Little Englanders who live Tunbridge Wells & drive a Mercedes giving it the unthreatening veneer of respectability & not for the party to be represented by violent chavvy louts such as Tommy Robinson which has generally been over the years the mainstay of far-right politics in Britain, despite the fact that Tommy’s real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon & to my knowledge he owns several businesses which in my estimations is hardly a name or background of somebody who’s salt of the earth working-class.
Its my thinking also that Farage resigned from UKIP when Tommy Robinson was appointed an adviser because he’d have to share the limelight with Tommy & Farage couldn’t be having that being the egotistical megalomaniac prick which he is, when Farage was UKIP leader & another party member got more attention than he was getting then those party members found themselves excommunicate from the party one way or another, Godfrey Bloom, Nikki Sinclaire, Kellie Maloney, Winston McKenzie, etc.
Nigel Farage has a history of saying hateful shite about Muslims, immigrants & the LGBTQ community, which has been no less incendiary then any racist & bigoted shite which Tommy Robinson has spouted. I in fact consider Nigel Farage far more dangerous then Robinson & an individual who has done a great deal of damage to this country, its not just that Farage was a central figure who helped duped millions into voting for Brexit back in 2016, it’s that with his ‘veneer of respectability’ Farage has helped to manipulate the masses into obsessing about Brexit at the detriment of other important issues, you know stuff like homelessness, child poverty, climate change, knife crime, the stuff Nigel Farage can seemingly afford not to give a shit about whereas many people definitely can’t afford to not give a shit about, I mean Nigel Farage wants to privatise the NHS, thinks man made climate-change isn’t real & has essentially said Britain’s ban on handguns is ludicrous, the only thing Nige truly seems to care about is obsessing about Brexit fucking Brexit & as he does so inflating his own ego, which brings me to Farage’s new Brexit Party cult.
Oh yes the Brexit Party is most definitely the cult of Farage, seen interviews with any other party member or party candidates standing in the European elections, no me neither, all I’ve seen has been interviews with its party leader who happens to be Nigel Farage & who the fuck elected him leader, I suspect he appointed himself leader & other Eurosceptic xenophobes so enamoured with him blindly obliged in supporting him as party leader, as for the policies of the Brexit Party, well obviously it’s for there to be Brexit, but the kind of Brexit Nigel wants, as for other party policies on issues such as immigration well by the sounds of it it’s whatever Nigel decides on the hoof which essentially adds up to the usual xenophobic/racist/regressive shite you’d expect from him, Oh & incidentally Farage is refusing to say who’s bankrolling his new Brexit Party cult, only to say they’ve received substantially large donations, hmm wonder if some of those donations have come from shell companies which can be traced back to Vladimir Putin?
Ultimately I realise it really doesn’t make a jot of difference what I or any other lefty politico says in opposing Nigel Farage & the bullshit he spouts, a fortnight tomorrow I suspect with the with the exception of London & Scotland that the Brexit Party will sweep the board at the European Elections, because far too many people have been allowed to be caught up in a malaise of Brexit, Brexit, precious Brexit, which in more than one way is damaging this country in the long term, fuck you Nigel Farage fuck you!
