Nigel Farage: We’re Led By Morons

Nigel Farage is almost too honest to be a British politician.

Steven Edginton:
The recent polling is fascinating.
The leave voters are dropping the conservative party in swathes.
And as you say Liz Truss is a Remainer, however she has become the sort of Brexiteer representative of this leadership campaign.
Very briefly let’s talk about her rival Rishi Sunak.
Why has he failed to connect with conservative voters?

Nigel Farage:
Goldman Sachs globalist. End of. That’s what he is.

Nigel Farage:
We’re led by morons.
We’re led by people who are economically illiterate.
And that has run through both parties.
We’ve not had honest conversations with the British public.

Nigel Farage:
the Conservatives have completely failed Britain.

Nigel Farage:
Your next question, of course – I’m not that stupid, and the next question is, you know:
Would I get involved in politics again?
I mean, you know, I did it for a heck of a long time.
If there was a level playing field then I probably would, but there isn’t. It just isn’t.

Number one, my name’s Nigel Farage.
I’m never going to get an even break from the press.
But that I can live with.

The funding rules are just ludicrous.
I could not raise big money without the donors being charged inheritance on their donations.
Can you believe it?
Talk about rigged system.
First past the post system.
Utterly corrupted postal voting list.

You know, 2014 UKIP won a national election the European elections. The first victory since 1986 by a party that wasn’t Labour or Conservative.

2019 we smashed them into oblivion with the Brexit party.

But 2015 – 4 million votes and one seat.

Nigel Farage:
I despise what the Conservatives have done to Britain

The Telegraph – 2 September 2022

Nigel Farage joins Steven Edginton in the latest Off Script podcast discussing the challenges facing the next prime minister.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

Times are changing and people are beginning to set their watches back by 40 50 years.

The Three-Day Week was one of several measures introduced in the United Kingdom in 1973-1974 by Edward Heath’s Conservative government to conserve electricity, the generation of which was severely restricted owing to industrial action by coal miners and railway workers.

From 1 January 1974, commercial users of electricity were limited to three specified consecutive days’ consumption each week and prohibited from working longer hours on those days.

Services deemed essential (e.g. hospitals, supermarkets and newspaper printing presses) were exempt.

Television companies were required to cease broadcasting at 22:30 to conserve electricity, although this restriction was dropped after a general election was called.

The Three-Day Week restrictions were lifted on 7 March 1974.

    Just when you thought the narrative couldn’t get any more idiotic, Europe shocks just about everyone … late on Sunday Bloomberg reported that European ministers will discuss “special measures to rein in soaring energy costs – from gas-price caps to a suspension of power derivatives trading – as the bloc scrambles to respond to latest developments in the deepening crisis.”

    While anything it does is doomed to fail, Europe has been scrambling to stave off an energy catastrophe that’s threatening to become an economic, social, and even financial crisis too.

    As we lurch inexorably towards the appointment of a new prime minister, there is little long-term relief to be expected on energy policy as all the candidates, without exception, have bought into the Kool Aid of “net zero”, under which policies initiated by their predecessors will stay in place, unaffected by the new Downing Street tenant.

    One of those policies, for reasons which will be explained in this article, will take on a special significance in the ongoing energy crisis, a policy defined by two words, “carbon capture”.

    Truss is not a communicator. Neither was Thatcher.
    Truss is not Thatcher.

    Truss has refused to be interviewed one-on-one through the latter stages of the Tory leadership campaign.

    She finally had to face the music yesterday on the new Laura Kuenssberg BBC Sunday Morning Brekdrek Sunday Politics vehicle yesterday.

    I have watched pine logs after a personality by-pass come out a difficult interview in better shape.

    It was a train-wreck – she answered nothing.

    She looked tired and haggered.

    She was a rabbit caught in the headlights, which is not a good look ahead of the most difficult and critical week in UK politics.

    When I look at a long-term chart of the British Pound all I see is oblivion. It’s on pace for the lowest close in history this year.

    And thanks to Gordon Brown there are no gold reserves left to back the currency nor any new energy sources to stabilize it.

    The Euro chart is worse.

    Russia and Putin understand this and all they have to do is continue doing nothing, or more explicitly pumping nothing, and the collapse will finally be complete.

    All the Fed has to do is stay its course.

    So, while City of London thought they were circling the Brexiteers and Russia going for the kill, they were themselves encircled by the real dogs of war.

    Maybe Davos wants this collapse.

    Sure, they talk a good game about Building Back Better and the Great Reset, but they didn’t imagine it would be on someone else’s terms, namely both the Americans’ and the Russians’.

    The globalist aim seems to be to level every nation in the west. The organisers are enriching themselves as they do so.
    Seems they think they no longer need the middle classes, disposing of small and medium size businesses and dumbing down curricula.

    There’s a point where you’re forced to wonder whether they’re moronic or malevolent because throwing money at a supply side shortage is a sure fire recipe for fuelling price inflation.

    As France 24 reports, with German businesses and consumers reeling from the pain of sky-high energy prices, as Europe’s biggest economy seeks to extricate itself from reliance from Russian supplies in the wake of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, Chancellor Olaf Scholz unveiled another €65 billion “inflation fighting” stimulus package (yes, when it comes to printing money to crush inflation, Europe is just as smart as the US), announcing rapid measures to prepare for the coming cold season will ensure that Germany would “get through this winter.”

    The latest agreement, which brings total relief to almost 100 billion euros since the start of the Ukraine war, was hammered out overnight into Sunday by Germany’s three-way ruling coalition of Scholz’s Social Democrats, the Greens, and the liberal FDP.

    Among the headline measures are one-off payments to millions of vulnerable pensioners and a plan to skim off energy firms’ windfall profits. In short, creeping nationalization of the energy sector.

    Gonzalo Lira II – 6 Sept 2022

    So the Europeans wanted to break the Russian economy with sanctions. And the Russian economy did not break.
    In fact, it’s doing better than ever.
    And the European economy is collapsing. And the people in Europe they are the ones demanding regime change.

  9. malagabay says:

    Germany is probably in the worst situation. Chancellor Olaf Scholz reacted to the Russia military operation with hysterical moralizing that was beyond any rationality. His government depends on the Green politicians in his cabinet. These are pigheaded ideological nuts. Germany, under severe threat of blackouts, will now decommission three perfectly fine nuclear power plants and restart dirty old coal fired power plants that were supposed to be dismantled. How Green is that?

    Farage is back.
    He gave a big interview in which he said that the Conservative party has completely betrayed its supporters and essentially he was basically hinting it needs to be destroyed.

    I know put plenty of people on the left who feel that about the Labour party ….

    Be very clear about this: Liz Truss’s election is a symptom of governmental collapse. The Conservative government is now basically sinking.

    It’s likely we’re going to have a Labour government led by Kier Starmer very soon. Not because there’s any great enthusiasm or belief in Kier Starmer but simply because he’s the alternative at the moment. But it’s an alternative in which no one believes and which doesn’t really offer any solutions …

    I don’t think the Davos men are smart enough to plan anything. Theyre just surfing on the wave of their own ineptitude, trying hard to change real currencies for digital ones in order to save their asses. They won’t make it, nor in time or in an appropriate manner MB Edit ******* text removed ******* Edit Ends
    Not even mentioning the post jab excess death and the infertility troubles ahead. The whole situation is a joke. Sinister one, but a joke all the same.

    It’s begins: Three Hour Power Cut Warning

    People in England, Scotland and Wales could be in for three hour power cuts this winter if it can’t import enough gas and electric imports from other parts of Europe, the British National Grid has warned. The utility said that the scenario was “unlikely,” but that a perfect storm of Russian gas cuts and a cold snap akin to 2018’s “beast from the east” could result in the rolling blackouts – reminiscent of power outages experienced in the 1970s.
