    One of the saddest aspects of Britain's election disaster was the horrible performance of UKIP, the party formerly led by Nigel Farage (and during the campaign by Paul Nuttall who has since resigned). Although UKIP played a prominent role in the campaign leading up to the Brexit referendum last year, the party's raison d'etat seems to have disappeared when voters backed Britain's exit from the European Union. Or so many voters clearly felt. UKIP Member of the European Parliament Bill Etheridge begs to differ, however. Writing for The Telegraph, Etheridge argues that UKIP lost because the party wasn't radical enough....
  • Nigel Farage is 'person of interest' in FBI investigation into Trump and Russia

    The Guardian ^ | June 1, 2017
    Nigel Farage is a “person of interest” in the US counter-intelligence investigation that is looking into possible collusion between the Kremlin and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Guardian has been told. Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the former Ukip leader had raised the interest of FBI investigators because of his relationships with individuals connected to both the Trump campaign and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder whom Farage visited in March. WikiLeaks published troves of hacked emails last year that damaged Hillary Clinton’s campaign and is suspected of having cooperated with Russia through third parties, according to recent congressional...

    On June the 8th, the British people go to the polls to vote for a new government. Most indications are showing a Conservative Party victory under Prime Minister, Theresa May, who leads the Labour Party in polls by quite a margin. UKIP was the party under Nigel Farage that not only forced the referendum, but was instrumental in the Brexit win. They have released their Manifesto to some controversy with many in the Establishment calling it “divisive” and “dangerous”. What do you think?

  • Britain's Populist UKIP Party on Track to Pull Off a Major Upset in Labour Stronghold

    The future is looking bright for Britain's populist and patriotic U.K. Independence Party. According to a new poll, the party's new leader -- Paul Nuttall -- is on track to win the by-election in Stoke Central on February 23. That's significant because Stoke is one of Britain's most important Labour strongholds. If the socialists lose their parliamentary seat to UKIP, it's a sure sign that a populist revolution is coming in the next national elections. According to the poll, Nuttall is currently enjoying a ten-point lead over his competitor from the Labour Party. The by-election is set to take place...

    ritish politician Nigel Farage, who campaigned for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, will attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration this month, Reuters reported Thursday. Farage, the former leader of the U.K. Independent Party and a vocal Trump backer, will be a guest of Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant (R). "The governor of Mississippi has invited me and I'm there for a few days and it's going to be a great, historic event," Farage told Sky News. "In America they've had a political revolution and it's complete; the problem in Britain is our revolution is not complete because the same...

    Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election: Dr Caroline Johnson holds seat for Tories as Labour heads towards 'electoral disaster'A senior Labour MP has warned his party is heading for "electoral disaster" after the Conservatives stormed to victory in the Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election. Ukip emerged as the runner-up to the Tory candidate Caroline Johnson, who will be the new MP after winning a landslide 17,570 votes. Ukip's Victoria Ayling secured just 4,426. Labour fell from second place at the 2015 general election to fourth with only 3,300 votes, behind the Liberal Democrats who pulled in 3,600.

    NIGEL Farage says he cannot leave his house without security after Brexit and Donald Trump’s US presidential election victory. The interim Ukip leader has received death threats and just last week was confronted during a night out. The revelation came as the 52-year-old Brexiteer refused to rule out backing fascist National Front leader Marine Le Pen for the French presidency. In his most explosive interview to date, the controversial MEP said he was “on the fence” over whether far-Right Eurosceptic Le Pen’s election was a price worth paying to bring down the EU, saying: “If she wins, it’s over.” Revealing...

    Humilated Theresa May is now begging for a meeting with Donald Trump before Christmas after being shown up by Nigel Farage. The UKIP leader was the first foreign politician to meet the President-elect after his shock victory at the polls. But Mrs May insisted relations with the Trump camp were “working well” and said they would meet “at the earliest opportunity”. Mr Farage is furious after his bid to become a special envoy to liaise with Mr Trump was rejected. The PM’s spokeswoman said: “The President-elect has talked about enjoying the same relationship that Reagan and Thatcher did. "I don’t...

    Theresa May is facing a growing Cabinet backlash over her decision to dismiss Nigel Farage despite him being the only British politician to meet with Donald Trump since his victory. The Daily Telegraph understands a number of members of the Cabinet and other Government ministers believe the Prime Minister’s allies have made a mistake by referring to Mr. Farage as an “irrelevance”. One Cabinet source also accused Downing Street of having “made no plan” for a Trump victory, despite Government claims that officials have for months been holding talks with members of his inner circle. Mrs. May has made clear...

    The right-wing British politician who helped persuade Britain to vote to leave the European Union has claimed Donald Trump’s sweeping victory in the U.S. presidential election as the latest result of a populist wave that is set to upturn the political order in Europe in 2017. “Brexit was the first brick that was knocked out of the establishment wall. A lot more were knocked out last night,” Nigel Farage, the interim leader of the U.K. Independence Party, told TIME on Wednesday. “This is Brexit times three.

    PJ Media ^ | 08-30-2015 | Michael van der Galien
    Appearing on British television this morning, former UKIP-leader Nigel Farage issued a stark warning to Theresa May, Great Britain's new (Tory) Prime Minister. Although kindly giving her the benefit of the doubt for the time being, he made clear that he expects her to trigger article 50 before the end of January 2017. If she does not, he implied, he'll take action. May has, since becoming Tory-leader and, therefore, prime minister, made clear she intends to follow through on the referendum results in which British voters opted to leave the European Union (called a Brexit). So far so good, Farage...

    Islamic full-face veils should be banned in shopping centers, public buildings and on public transport, UKIP leadership hopeful Lisa Duffy has said. She said she did not want a general law banning the veil, but there were some places it should not be allowed. The councillor — one of six vying for leader — also said she would close Islamic schools and ban Sharia courts. Meanwhile, MEP candidate Bill Etheridge warned against focusing solely on Islam as it “makes us look small-minded”. …
