UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage has taken one step closer to backing Front National candidate Marine Le Pen in the French presidential elections in 2017, declaring that if Ms. Le Pen wins, the European Union project will collapse entirely.
Mr. Farage, who has been known to harbour concerns about the Front National as a party, told the Sunday Express newspaper that he will be backing the “utterly respectable Eurosceptic” France Arise candidate in the first round.
But he also hinted that in the second round, which his preferred candidate Nicolas Dupont-Aignan is unlikely to reach, he may back Ms. Le Pen in order to bring down the EU.
“I know her. She’s very determined, brilliant on TV. I mean absolutely brilliant,” he said, before adding: “When you watch her making her argument and you can see her getting into it she is really good at it. There’s lots of baggage and that’s the problem.”
The baggage he refers to is the Front National’s history.
Founded in 1972 by Jean-Marie Le Pen, Marine Le Pen’s father, the party hosted some unsavoury characters and Mr. Le Pen himself has been the subject of repeated controversy given his statements minimising the Holocaust amongst a number of other allegedly anti-Semitic comments.
But Ms. Le Pen has sought to move the party away from her father’s legacy, provoking a huge public row as a result.

Former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage weighs in on Hillary Clinton’s favorite world leader German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the internet oversight issue.
Hillary Clinton, while taking questions from the press onboard her campaign plane Thursday, proclaimed one of her favorite world leaders is Angela Merkel. Former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage joined the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney to discuss.
“Normally in life when you see failure staring you in the face, you reject it and run in the opposite direction — but not dear old Hillary who is still stuck in the Twentieth Century and who simply is incapable of opening her eyes to what Merkel did last summer,” he said.
He added: “What Angela Merkel did last year will go down as the great historical mistakes made by any Western Democratic leader.”

United States presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has lashed out at UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage during a speech at a rally today. Mr. Farage has told Breitbart London her comments are “extraordinary” and suggested she spend more time speaking to working people in her country than attacking him.
Mrs. Clinton has ranted about the outgoing UKIP leader who appeared at a rally for her political rival for the presidency Donald Trump. Clinton slammed Trump for having Farage appear on stage to talk about the Brexit vote and even went as far as to suggest the former UKIP leader of being in bed with Russian president Vladimir Putin because he had appeared on Russian television broadcasts.
“Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi,” Clinton said.
“Farage has called for a ban on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are quote “worth less” than men, and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race — that’s who Trump wants by his side.The godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin. ”
“The godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin,” she concluded.
Posted onJune 21, 2016byifnm|Comments Off on ‘Shoot And Stab Nigel Farage’: Hundreds Of Social Media Messages Urging Attacks On UKIP Leader Revealed
A Breitbart London analysis has revealed hundreds of historical and contemporary messages sent via social media platforms urging violence against UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage.
Over the course of just a few hours, Breitbart London uncovered hundreds of tweets and Facebook updates dating back as far as 2010, with some as recent as last Thursday afternoon after Member of Parliament Jo Cox was murdered.
The revelations go some way to shattering the narrative that “hateful” or “aggressive” rhetoric emanates from only one side of UK politics. Most of the messages listed below are from younger people, and Breitbart found that most were either Liberal Democrat, Scottish National Party, or Labour Party supporters. Most of them also expressed pro-European Union sentiment and were overwhelmingly supportive of the ‘Remain’ campaign at the European Union referendum.
Basic level searches under the search terms “shoot Nigel Farage”, “stab Nigel Farage” or “kill Nigel Farage” reveal hundreds of messages, some of those in fact with further messages of support for the notions in the replies.
For example, on January 17th 2013, Liberal Democrat member Craig Swanney tweeted, “Can someone just shoot Nigel Farage”. As of June 20th, Mr. Swanney has a “TEAM #INtogether” image on his Twitter profile.
Other examples range from those playing “Snog, Marry, Kill” and opting to kill Mr. Farage, to some deeply disturbing comments such as “If I was a hitman, I’d kill Farage for free” and “I want to stab Nigel Farage in the neck”.
Some social media users urge others to attack Mr. Farage, while some suggest they are willing to do it themselves.
Posted onJune 19, 2016byifnm|Comments Off on Brexit is being driven by English nationalism. And it will end in self-rule
The EU referendum could lead to the creation of a new nation state.
It is a question the English used to ask about their subject peoples: are they ready for self-government? But it is now one that has to be asked about the English themselves. It’s not facetious: England seems to be stumbling towards a national independence it has scarcely even discussed, let alone prepared for. It is on the brink of one of history’s strangest nationalist revolutions.
When you strip away the rhetoric, Brexit is an English nationalist movement. If the Leave side wins the referendum, it will almost certainly be without a majority in either Scotland or Northern Ireland and perhaps without winning Wales either. The passion that animates it is English self-assertion. And the inexorable logic of Brexit is the logic of English nationalism: the birth of a new nation state bounded by the Channel and the Tweed.
Over time, the main political entity most likely to emerge from Brexit is not a Britain with its greatness restored or a sweetly reunited kingdom. It is a standalone England. Scotland will have a second referendum on independence, this time with the lure of staying in the European Union. Northern Ireland will be in a horrendous bind, cut off from the rest of the island by a European border and with the UK melting around it. Its future as an unwanted appendage of a shrunken Britain is unsustainable. Wales is more uncertain, but a resurgence of Welsh nationalism after Brexit is entirely possible, especially after a Scottish departure from the UK. After Brexit, an independent England will emerge by default.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has unloaded on the European Union’s elite today, speaking in the European Parliamentary chamber in Strasbourg.
Mr. Farage raised the issue of the mass migrant rapes and sexual assaults in Cologne in Germany, taking aim at the EU’s common asylum policy that he warned in April 2015 would result in a catastrophe for the continent.
It’s now been a month since the last European Summit and I don’t know about a week being a long time in politics, there has been a sea change in that month and I think that one event has woken people up to the folly of EU leaders; the Juncker Common Asylum Plan, the Merkel call, which led to a stampede.
Those of us that have warned that unlimited numbers of people from different cultures without security checks would pose a threat to the cohesion of our societies were roundly abused for doing so.
And then we came to New Year’s Eve; Munich, the train station. The main station closed down because of a terrorist threat, the intelligence coming from Syria and Iraq. The very same train station that in September people had stood at holding up their placards, refugees welcome, that irony was not lost on me.

Ukip leader careered off French road after a wheel on his Volvo came loose. Police told Farage all the vehicle’s wheels had been deliberately unscrewed. He was forced to jump over the road barrier to escape the speeding lorries. Farage has received death threats during his tumultuous time as Ukip head.
Nigel Farage fears he has been the victim of an assassination attempt after his car was sabotaged, causing a terrifying motorway crash.
The Ukip leader careered off a French road after a wheel on his Volvo came loose while he was driving from Brussels back to his home in Kent.
When the police arrived at the scene, they told him that the nuts on all of the wheels had been deliberately unscrewed, The Mail on Sunday has established.
Mr Farage, who has received death threats during his tumultuous time as leader, last night spoke about the ‘frightening’ incident, which took place near Dunkirk.
‘It was the middle of bloody nowhere, and I was caught in a very bad position,’ he said.
‘There was a huge section of roadworks with cars going back and forth on the same side of the carriageway. I suddenly realised I was losing steering but there was no hard shoulder to pull on to.
‘I slowed down, put the hazards on and then one of the wheels came off. I jumped over the wall as quickly as I bloody well could to get away from lorries and everything.’
Posted onAugust 8, 2015byifnm|Comments Off on Farage: Calais Chaos Will Get Worse Rather Than Better
The chaos in Calais looks only as if it is going to get worse rather than better. But should we be surprised?
Imagine for a moment that you are one of the illegal migrants camped out in Calais looking to get into the UK. You know that you are very likely to make it – Kent’s Chief Constable warned this week that up to 70 per cent of migrants are making it through to the UK. That’s some 900 or so in just one month.
So, you know that you have a very good chance of making it to Britain if you manage to smuggle yourself onto British soil.
But what then? Well, there will be those who of course get through undetected.
As for those who are caught? Well, just look at what happens currently with those who seek to claim asylum and are turned down.
Home Office figures up to 2013 show us that in the previous ten year period there were 240,000 main applicants, not including dependents. Of those, 83,000 were granted asylum or given some form of humanitarian protection.
Yet 141,000, almost 60 per cent, were refused. Out of that number, only 40,000 were removed by the government, a truly pitiful figure.

“So your moment has come, and frankly if you have the courage you should lead the Greek people out of the Eurozone with your head held high. Get back your democracy; get back control of your country. Give your people the leadership and the hope that they crave. Yes it will be tough in the first few months but with a devalued currency and with friends of Greece all over the world, you will recover.” Nigel Farage

Watch the full 77-minute session, in which Donald Trump says he wants to update the people on the ‘incredible progress’ made in the past four weeks. The president turns fire on the media, calling the industry dishonest and ‘out of control’. He dismisses reports of chaos and conspiracy in his administration and claims his team is running like a ‘fine-tuned machine’.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
