Farage has been mouthing off again, this time in Australia.
https://www.theguardian.com/politics...er-cpac-brexit

Whenever he goes abroad, he never fails to attack different aspects of traditional British life and culture. Here it is the late lamented Queen Mother, who was probably amongst the top five most popular people in the country at any given time. His complaint? She smoked and drank.

Not to stop there, he launched into an obviously and blatantly racist rant against Harry and Meghan. Their crime? They are apparently both popular and in tune with the zeitgeist and not at all extremely right wing.

On past trips overseas, Farage has conspired with Trump and his cronies to sell off the NHS, met clandestinely with leading Russian figures himself and through his sleazy pal Aaron Banks and generally done his best to undermine the country whilst grovelling to special interests abroad.

Isn't it time we had this self-serving and oligarch-loving creep locked up in the Tower?

Tbh I read the stuff about the Queen Mother as his idea of a compliment. That she could do all that 'laddish' stuff and live to 101.

The stuff about Harry makes sense from his perspective too. He indeed was a 'lad' and now has changed since marrying Meghan.

I don't like that sort of rhetoric, it's unhelpful

And I don't think attacking royalty is very problematic, broadly speaking. The issue is this allegation of racism etc, which is ****ty, but not treacherous

The stuff with banks etc is a different kettle of fish, and you could probably make the case there.

I admire Farage.

If you walk into any run down pub and ask the ageing barflies for their nuanced and informed opinions on the world, this is the sort of half-baked garbage you’ll get.

Yet Farage has turned it into an art form that attracts audiences and he likely collects a very nice fee.

He's certainly done well out of Brexit - he earns something like £500K a year just on speaking engagements and media work, according to a recent Private Eye article.

Brexit is nice work if you can get it - for some. Pushing the country into economic chaos and oblivion has been a profitable enterprise for Farage and a number of his buddies.

Meanwhile the £ is now at a new low and threatening to be at record postwar lows.

A deep question. What part of the Kingdom is United? who laments the queen mother? Do you think everyone is a royalist? what is was the racist tirade that you are talking about? Have you seen Piers Morgan's attitude towards Meghan? Would that be racist as well? Would Boris Johnson be better? Just asking?! Didnt he call black people pickyninnies? Isn't the Tory party a fundamentally white party? Just some thoughts.

Despite being extravagantly kept by taxpayers all her life, the Queen Mum died 4million + pounds in debt, leaving the taxpayers to pick up the tab once again. Harry and Meghan travel everywhere by pj, stay on multi-billion pound yachts and use helicopters, especially when attending climate change conferences, as well as engaging in big-game hunting, yet, suggest that emissions may be a problem for , erm, us (but not 'them', clearly) and conservation is important (as long as it's elephants only and doesn't get in the way of killing lions for sport). Taxpayers pay for an innumerable number of queen's distant cousins and other very distant relatives. Randy Andy is dodgy as hell... What's to like? You don't have to have a perspective on Farage to see that something's gone very wrong somewhere.

They are not. It's the liberals.

You do not, under any circumstances, gotta hand it to the monarchy.

Sit back relax and watch the monarchy and reactionary right eat each other. Chill.

Doesnt it also have one of, if not the, most diverse cabinets in history? Even if they are a bunch of swivel eyed loons
