TOPIC: Nigel Farage and the BBC

Nigel Farage and the BBC 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Nigel Farage seems to have been getting high profile airtime on the BBC recently, making his 33rd appearance on Question Time and being interviewed by Andrew Marr. Free publicity in the run-up to the European elections?

Lord Adonis:

For those urging me to go quiet on the BBC, important to understand that Brexit & Farage are largely the creation of the BBC. This isn’t a side issue but a central issue if we are going to win next year’s ‘final deal’ referendum to honour our European destiny as a people.

Nigel Farage banned from local pub after landlord accuses him of walking away from car crash

“He’s a terrible, terrible human being,” said 38 year-old Mr Tranter, who runs the George and Dragon pub close to Mr Farage’s home. “He just upped and left. He didn’t even bother to see if me and my little boy were OK. ...

The Brexit Party confirmed in a statement that Mr Farage was a passenger in the Range Rover at the time of the collision.

“After ensuring that nobody was seriously hurt, and following the advice of his security team, Nigel discreetly withdrew from the scene,” a spokesperson said.

Definitely sounds as if he scurried off. But a great man to his many fans.

No, Nigel does not, repeat not, want to talk about who's funding him and his luxury lifestyle. ("How dare they ask me such questions! Don't they know who I am?!") As much as there may well be good reasons for leaving the EU (though I can't think of any), it's depressing that so many people are happy to follow this charlatan.

Every one in politics is a charlatan. Corbyn has done well just being a career politician. He only says what the public want to hear.

I will be voting Brexit or Party or UKIP just as a protest vote. Despite both being cesspits, then again Labour and Tories are viper pits.

For this man to have any credibility and/or future in UK politics, he will have to come clean on funding.

Where exactly is the money coming from - and what is expected in return? Financiers usually have an agenda.

Pretty much answered your own question. Brexit Party also has backing from the working class who voted out.

I just love to see Tommy Robinson, become a MEP it will change the face politics.

I won't be voting for anyone.

Brexit party's funding must be investigated, says Gordon Brown

Former PM is concerned ‘dirty money’ from foreign donors could reach Nigel Farage’s party ...

Before Thursday’s crucial European elections, Gordon Brown has written to the Electoral Commission calling on it to urgently examine whether the party has sufficient safeguards on its website to prevent the contribution of “dirty money”. ...

“Now Mr Farage heads a new Brexit party, which is making questionable claims about the true source of its funding at a time when the Electoral Commission has warned of the dangers of multiple, small, anonymous donations being a cover for dirty money.” ...

The warnings come at a time of more questions about the Brexit party’s links to a disgraced former aide to Farage who was imprisoned in the US after being caught offering money laundering services to undercover federal agents. George Cottrell was with Farage when he was arrested at Chicago O’Hare airport in July 2016. ...

The Guardian understands that Cottrell has told friends that he is now overseeing the Brexit party’s fundraising operation. On Sunday the Sunday Times also reported that a senior source in the party said that Cottrell had “reprised his role as one of [Farage’s] top fundraisers”. ...

"Tommy Robinson"
..if he were elected (same for the Farage Mob.. would be a tiny number of MEPs among over 750..the vast majority who actually like being in the EU and have sensible policies and have real power.

Farage, Robinson would have nil effect and probably like the Ghastly Nigel as the past has shown..never fucking turn up (except on pay day)

Talk about World Class Scroungers. And people admire them? Weird or what?

They're such obvious conmen, it's surprising that so many people are taking in by them.

Re:Nigel Farage and the BBC 2 Months ago  
Under different names, Robinson has had several convictions - and served time - for fraud, assault, abuse etc.

Farage has tried to become an MP five times - and failed miserably.

The fact that people are even discussing these two - neither of whom have achieved anything - is sad.


But some seem to get fixated with non-entities...

Don't believe all what you read Barney and Jo.

The mortgage fraud was a set up just to Tommy arrested, yelling out "sheep shaggers" at a football clash got him in trouble. Despite both sides were hurling insults it's what firms do.

Still no real mention about the assaults on Tommy, Carl and Nigel. All the culprits got away with it.

Yet lobbing an egg at Corbyn will actually get you jail time.


Don't forget Anna Soubry called Brexit supports "Nazis" on TV, yet some one called her it and police were involved.

If this isn't satisfactorily answered - it becomes the elephant in the room.

Farage, and his parties, have been financed by a variety of individuals.

They have paid for his accommodation, drivers and office.


No doubt that transparency is urgently necessary.

If the Brexit Party/Farage/? - is to survive, or have any legitimacy.

I was just having a quick look at the Brexit party's website and it's rather short on information about their candidates. They're named, but that's as far as it goes. There's no info on their backgrounds.
thebrexitparty.org/meet-our-candidates/

However, this site has done some research into them and found that "The Brexit Party candidates for the Euro Elections reveal a common thread of a moneyed elite, big business and finance.." It goes through 20 of them one by one and provides interesting info on their backgrounds.
