UKIP hit the island

Recommended Posts

I see Mr Farage is on the rock next week. Seems to divide opinion among most people, wonder if he'll get a decent reception here. Although I do seem to remember it was reported in the media he did have an offshore account here, so he's obviously in favour of 'low tax jurisdictions.'

Read 700 people have bought tickets, end of the day the guy is the leader of a legitimate party people will want to hear what his policies are and he has as much right to be heard as Cameron Clegg etc

Have I missed the point of this; we have no influence over UK elections?

True, Merkin, but the UK and it's policies have a massive effect on us. It will be interersting and potentially important to question his stance on offshore locations. I shall be there.

I agree with him on Europe but don't agree with him on much of anything else.

Let's not confuse the political union with the economic union. Farage is not "anti-Europe" or against inter-European trade.

Not judging from his record as an MEP. e.g. I believe he claimed £205,000 for the costs of renting at office that was provided rent free by a supporter.

That doesn't surprise me. I've seen him described as a cult, so I'd ask him what he planned to do about adult illiteracy.

Anyone go?

 

I went along and the place was full to the rafters. The guy is entertaining, has a large ego, drank nearly a bottle of wine onstage and I left feeling as if I'd been to see an entertainer and not a serious politician. Which I suppose tells it's own story really.
