Nigel Farage is the Ralph Klein of UK politics

Fellow Canadian conservatives, you need to pay some attention to this guy, Nigel Farage, not because we are in such bad straits as the UK, but because we are doing fine, and there is hope now that the UK will once again start to go in the right direction. I do not object to David Cameron because he is an Etonian toff, I object to Cameron because his instincts are so unfailingly wrong about everything..

In reading this Daily Mail article about Farage, I became aware that closest thing to him in Canada was the late lamented Ralph Klein, who was folksy enough to win elections and strategic enough to move the province in the right direction.

Says Farage of Cameron, at the pub with a reporter, having just taken a call from his son:

Sorry, where were we?’ he says. ‘Rewriting Britain’s political landscape,’ I reply. ‘Oh yes,’ he continues, picking up his thread – and his glass. ‘UKIP is not going away.’

Does he consider himself more of a real Tory than Cameron? ‘Good Lord yes,’ he chunters. ‘He’s not a Tory, he’s a socialist. Tory voters feel much closer to me than their own leader. 

‘His priorities are gay marriage, foreign aid and wind farms. They’re not mine.’

That pretty much says it all.

Farage has been the hero of the Canadian Right for at least three years,after he started telling the real Dr.Evil, Herman Van Rompuoy,all the things he needed to hear. Thanks,Youtube.

Yeah,it’s too damned bad most of our politicians are after “comfort” and idealism just isn’t in their makeup. So many just go through the motions until they are entitled to that glorious pension.

Someone should introduce Harper to Farage,maybe some of Nigel’s methods would rub off on Stephen in time for the 2015 elections against the bi-polar Pretty Boy.

And the American right as well (Farage being popular here in conservative/tea party circles-those of us that know about him, anyway..).

It is especially exciting to see what is happeing politically to some of our closest allies (Canada, UK, and hopefully AU if they can get rid of Gillard and elect Abbot soon), especially since us Reagan Conservative/Tea Party types are in limbo here in the USA at least Federally! Go Farage, Go UKIP!
