The bloke to Nigel's right appears to be off in some unknown never-never land. Quite amusing to watch his reactions and non reactions.
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

I know this is not directly about Farage and Ukip, but it looks as though the same thing is beginning to crop up in the Faterland: Anti-Euro Party May Block Germany’s Merkel from Victory. Does anyone know anything about the FfD? Are they a Libertarian party like Ukip?

Firstly, we talked about it before here...somewhere...

It seems to be a single-issue anti-Euro party, collecting protest vote (perhaps the one that used to go to the Greens, and then to the Pirates)....

Here is a new piece on AfD... not sure how appropriate the title is:

Germany’s Tea Party

It is going to be interesting indeed, to see which countries, including US and Canada, finally reach a consensus and reject Euro-Collectivism, Euro-Socialism, or whatever else you wish to call it. My guess is that country will actually have a 'leg up' on everyone else.

And so far, it appears as though Canada is the leading contender.

There a remote possibility that Pierre Elliott Trudeau's eldest son Justin may become Prime Minister; if that happens he will our version of Obama as his only work experience is that of part-time drama teacher. Lefttards and progressives love him.

Progressives and Leftards are different?

Current projections show Merkel at 298 seats.... just shy of a majority, so ironically the landscape probably shifts leftward (grand coalition).

We probably will not know the final on AfD showing today but in all cases, Merkel will not let them in....

Welcome to the Party Pal! Roger Daltrey finally 'Gets It'.

Quote:The vocalist and songwriter laid blame not only on the Labor Party, but also the European Union as a whole for its “detrimental” bureaucracy which he said he “can’t stand.”

The United Kingdom joined the European Union when it was established in 1993, but opted out of adopting the euro as its currency, with British public opinion firmly against abandoning the pound sterling. Joining the E.U. meant citizens of other member countries willing to accept lower wages could enter Britain to legally work.

Do we have a new Ukip member in the making here?

Surprise, surprise, surprise! 'UK Tea Party' Surges to Become Country's 'Most Favoured' Political Movement.

Quote:Nigel Farage's right-wing UK Independence Party (UKIP) has once again rocked the British political establishment by coming first in a recent poll which quizzed Brits on their feelings towards the four main political parties.

While UKIP hasn't yet mustered up any elected members of the UK Parliament, the party this week registered as Britain's most favoured political organisation, scoring 27 percentage points(,) ahead of the left-wing Labour Party's 26 and the Conservative Party's 25 percent.

UKIP is also expected to take a huge chunk of seats at the upcoming European Parliamentary elections in May, promising more Eurosceptic Members (MEPs) who will no doubt argue for a return of sovereignty to national governments across the continent, away from the bureaucratic talons of the European Union.

Recently, The Economist referred to UKIP as Britain's Tea Party, a nod towards the party's libertarian leanings. Nigel Farage once again upset the UK establishment this week by calling for a repeal of the UK's ban on handguns, initially introduced in 1996 after the mass shooting in Dunblane, Scotland.

The Independent reported Sunday that the finding of their favourability poll was a "surprise," further proof of the fact that much like the United States, Britain's political and media establishments are increasingly out of step with public opinion.

But of even more importance to the US,
Quote:Meanwhile, Britain's leftist establishment continues to reel at the rise of a new libertarian conservative party in the United Kingdom, especially since it has even begun to emerge that UKIP is attracting an increasing number of former left-wing voters.
This is a great indication as to what would occur with the advent of a Real Second Party. After all, what's to look forward to, with just two wings of the very same party?

Yeah, I know. However; when there are so many different parties, like here in Sweden. The political establishment has insured that nothing productive will ever occur except to insure that the political establishment is lavished with all the luxuries the peasants/we can only dream about.

I know it is very repetitive, my using the same basic language about one party with just two wings. But I am trying to reinforce this to others who may be looking in from the outside. Also, I am aware of the difference between 'de facto' and 'de jure' The truth is that there really are(de jure) two parties. But there really is(de facto) just one basic party, locked in a celestial orbit with each other.
