You've just got to love this guy, if you love sovereignty. He is utterly fearless in the face of adverse conditions. And he's probably the best public speaker in Britain. Like something straight out of a Shakespearean play.

Farage is a self-professed Libertarian, and made the following remarks in a speech back in 2006. He said,

Quote:"We've got three social democratic parties in Britain — Labour, LiberalLib Dem and Conservative are virtually indistinguishable from each other on nearly all the main issues" and "you can't put a cigarette paper between them and that is why there are nine million people who don't vote now in general elections that did back in 1992."
