Nigel and the Blaggers

Interesting clip from 2005 in which Nigel Farage seems to be raising valid points and Blair seems to be blagging, trying to score cheap points, rather than addressing those points in a coherent manner. I’m not a fan of Farage … he should not be winning arguments but he does because mainstream politicians like Blair then and Cameron/Clegg/Miliband fight him by blagging rather than reasoning.

A few days ago, before UKIP got most seats in the Euro Parliament election, Farage was interviewed by LBC’s James O’Brien. O’Brien comes across as an unnecessarily aggressive interviewer who is more interested in attacking Farage than in exploring his views.
