"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

'The Charisma Of A Damp Rag'

What a beautifully-crafted insult from Nigel Farage.  The look on van Rompuy's face is priceless.


  1. Fern Britten(sp?) was covering for Jeremy Vine this afternoon on BBC Radio 2 and had this as her main discussion topic, she played the audio clip (extended) twice, both in her promo and the main broadcast to highlight her "disgust at this embarrasment to British democracy" but actually Nigel came over quite well.

    Nigel faced sad ol' Shirley Williams in the subsequent phone in and, despite Ferns attempts to bolster a pro-Rumpy faction most callers were clearly in favour of Nigel, even the woman who said " he speaks for the likes of me but he should not be so rude".
    At least it got him on the mainstream media, well done Nigel.

    Shirl gave the game away when, at one point, she announced that "The media depict this in a distorted way...Oh no, Fern not you at the BBC, the print media I mean..." or words to that effect.

  2. That's the awful thing, Banned - the information is out here if only people will look for it.

    Thanks for describing the show - I missed it. Shirley, of course, has been in the pocket of the EU for god knows how many years. And the BBC. And the msm.

    Infamy,infamy ... :-)
