I know Nigel Farage as I worked alongside him during his 2015 parliamentary campaign. I can tell you that little that ever involves the wheeler-dealer, Ukip egoist, Farage, is ever transparent or straightforward. Indeed, much that surrounds him is also accompanied by a great deal of spin and, sometimes, back-spin. Farage is after all not only an adept charlatan, but a media whore.
For those who have been following the amusing story about the so-called assassination attempt on Farage, all these ingredients and more are present, and they tell us more about the leader than he or his spin-masters imagine.
The story came to light early in the New Year, when the Mail on Sunday informed its readers about how the dear leader had to abandon his car on a return trip from Brussels. The car, we were informed, had been sabotaged with a view to creating a fatal accident.
This begged the question as to why Farage had waited so long to tell his story when the alleged incident occurred in October?
The Mail then stated: "Mr Farage said he had not asked police to pursue the investigation because he didn’t want to ‘make anything of it’. When asked if he had received death threats, Mr Farage said: ‘Of course. It’s not a particularly easy game, this.’ “He added: ‘The French police and mechanics looked at it but I have made no formal report in this country. The mechanics were absolutely certain of [foul play] but I have decided to take no further action.'" a) So, even were it in Farage’s gift, why would he decide to take ‘no further action’ and fail to demand that the Police pursue an investigation?
If Farage's claims about foul play were true, then the Police would, willy-nilly, have carried out an investigation into an act of criminality, ie attempted murder, whatever the dear leader’s wishes in the matter. Police investigating criminality do not ask permission in these circumstances. Let us be clear: any alleged tampering of the car might have caused a multiple collision on the motorway and numerous deaths and injuries. We are not merely discussing the life of Farage; we are discussing many other lives by way of collateral damage. This might not matter to some party members, who are absorbed in the ‘cult of the leader’, but the Police are – we submit – probably rather more concerned about more than merely Mr Farage’s life, however hard that might be to grasp for the dear leader’s sycophants. This all stinks to high Heaven. One is surprised that the Mail reporter did not ask these questions.
This, in turn, begs more questions about the alleged incident. Where were the mechanics’ and Police reports?
Could there have been any reason to exaggerate or invent the story in the first place? Could there have been a reason to win sympathy for Farage, as leader of Ukip, given his position was and remains in jeopardy? Certainly, Farage has fallen out with his only MP, Douglas Carswell, and there are unflattering mutterings amongst his MEPs and many senior party members. There would be nothing like an assassination attempt to generate sympathy and shore up the dear leader’s position. The question would then arise as to whether any such scheme along these lines was carried out with the aid of sections of the media and/or those within the political establishment, who want Farage to remain in charge of the leading Establishment safety-valve party.
It is even possible that if Farage's car really was sabotaged, it might have been carried out with this possibility (of securing Farage's position) in mind; in this case, whilst Farage might not even have known about it, his spin-masters almost certainly would have exaggerated it.
Since then, the Telegraph has kindly shed more light upon the incident.
According to the Telegraph, “the wheel came off Mr Farage's Volvo V70 while he was driving on a motorway, but French police and mechanics have since said there was no sign of foul play.” No surprise there!
The dear leader is quoted as saying: "My view is whether it was deliberately tampered with or not, what happened, happened and I just want to get on with my life." Indeed: all this media attention is rather embarrassing given the depth of the hole from which Farage protesteth.
The Telegraph continues: “Dunkirk’s prosecutor denied reports that Mr Farage had asked not to open an investigation: "If they had noticed sabotage, they would have had to open an investigation". Exactly!
“The anti-EU campaigner had previously told how mechanics in France said the nuts on his wheel had been unscrewed. He said: "The French police looked at it and said that sometimes nuts on one wheel can come a bit loose – but not on all four… The mechanics were absolutely certain of [foul play] but I have decided to take no further action."”
Oh dear, what a muddle.
To add to the embarrassment, the journal then quotes Farage as saying: “Maybe it's because I've got so many women pregnant over the years that I have a different view [of maternity leave]." One wonders how many abortions or love children Farage has caused and what the dear leader’s family thinks of his admission. Clearly, this in iteslef cannot have done more to alienate female voters and, once again, it also demonstrates that the dear leader’s ego often wins over common sense.
Absurdity of any Assassination Attempt
Who would wish to assassinate Farage anyway? Is he not a creation of BBC’s Question Time and other agencies of the MSM? Does he not occupy a position that someone else, immensely more dangerous to the Establishment, would occupy but for him? Has he not been well backed by previous and relatively recent supporters of the Labour Party, such as Richard Desmond? Is he not a staunch multiculturalist, who was the first notable politician to demand the import of Syrian refugees?
A number of us in UKIP cannot imagine why anyone would wish to assassinate this increasingly absurd clown, who is rapidly becoming a figure of fun. After all, he has side-lined a patriotic section of the electorate, along with a party full of members, into a blind alley, whose support and resources are being wasted on what many have termed an ‘Establishment safety-valve’. The only question is whether Farage is deliberately complicit in this or whether he has allowed himself to be used, wittingly or unwittingly, for this purpose. The dear leader is a media junkie; the more publicity he receives, the more he craves. One step out of line and the same media that created him will destroy him – such a simple task.
The least Farage has to do with the approaching EU referendum, the better. He is a liability.
Oh, and one other thing: the EKP will, in due course, expose Breitbart, the Ukip media backer that is run from America. It employs Raheem Kassam, an appropriately named fellow to sing Farage’s praise, as well as Shneur Odze of UKIP Friends of Israel infamy. Strange bedfellows if you ask me.
