UKIP leader Nigel Farage probably expected the warm welcome he received at the LibDem conference in Brighton. There to share a platform and debate with Euro-weenie MEP Chris Davies, Farage told the fringe meeting audience why he believes the British people should have a referendum on rule from Brussels:
UKIP leader Nigel Farage was barracked by delegates ….. But his message that Britain should leave the EU to gain control of its own destiny did not go down well with some members of the pro-European audience ….. The UKIP leader said Britain should be free to negotiate its own bilateral trade agreements, arguing – to boos from the audience – that it was a "liberating, positive and modern thing to do" ….. But the UKIP leader got the roughest ride when he said there was very little difference between the three main parties, facing cries of "rubbish" when he said it was not possible to get a "cigarette paper" between the parties on many issues ….. But many members of the audience applauded his call for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, prompting him to tell delegates "it is not that awful to agree with UKIP occasionally". This was greeted with cries of "yes, it is" from the audience.
There you have it, the voice of modern, liberal, sofistikated opinion. Hearing an Englishman, in England, calling for the reinstatement of our ancient freedoms of self-governance, their instincts are to boo, heckle, catcall and insult. A day later, they could barely contain themselves when one of our chief foreign rulers told them why we must be slaves to his regime. Something to remember when that nice, smiley, sandle-wearing
traitorous filth LibDem asks you for your vote – he thinks your prospects are the business only of foreign politicians.
