Farage BLASTS “Bland And Insipid” Career Politicians
Nigel Farage, speaking on the Today program on BBC Radio 4, has taken aim at the current crop of establishment politicians saying they are “bland and insipid”. A post-Brexit Britain would, he argued demand something different from a new generation of politicians not afraid of speaking their mind.
“We’ve had enough of bland, insipid, dull, play-safe politicians and we want something different.”
Pressed by the host, John Humphreys on whether he would like a seat in the House Of Lords he replied nonchalantly “Not particularly”. Pressed for a more detailed reply, he insisted:
“No, no I don’t! I want Brexit to happen properly and I worry that we’re seeing dither and delay.”
However, part of the problem for a plain-speaking politician is how they are treated by the media:
“Anybody that voices a view that is outside the mainstream orthodoxy gets dumped on by the newspapers, the media, social media but you know what? So what?
“It doesn’t matter. ‘Joe public’ doesn’t see it like that.”
Hope springs eternal though as Mr Farage noted that the last few years have seen the emergence of some “real characters” coming into politics in the Western world.
