Nigel Farage interviewed at IEA event: How free-market is UKIP?

Mark Littlewood, Director General, Institute of Economic Affairs, conducts a one-on-one interview (16.12.2010) with UKIP leader Nigel Farage, examining whether UKIP is a free-market party. Good old Nigel - he is the most on-the-ball politican; we need him making decisions for our country!

The question at 21minutes about the chinese currency debasement i thought was well answered well by Nigel. The man asking the question should check out Peter Schiff and how he talks about the chinese currency manipulation.

First off China, Singapore etc have been allowing their currencies to appreciate. Its been a slow process but they have been getting back to the norm slowly. From my understanding China forces their currency down by buying american bonds. Bonds that they have been getting rid off. So in order for china to sell its goods abroad its used trillions of savings to destroy its currency. Effectively sending their savings abroad, to buy the international currency(dollar) so that others may buy their goods.

If they let their currency appreciate their people can consume their own goods as theyll be able to afford them.

We ourselves have been buying chinese goods not through the production of goods but through debt!

Plus as Nigel said tarriffs only end up damaging a country. This was recognised in the times of Smith, in the 30s when they tried it and agian in the 70s when they tried it. Things will rebalance. We just need to stop borrowing so much money, we need to stop "stimulating" cause after all that government spending goes into foreign goods, and stop all government manipulations!
I agree with the person who said that UKIP need to move into a more libertarian direction, even if its quite slowly. I see why not all members want to legalise drugs, but why not campaign for medical marijuana? I see that many members support the NHS, but why not have state funding with private provision? Etc.

Inflation in the EU is a real problem.A tribute to the always entertaining Nigel Farage and some antics from the last year or two.A man who calls a spade a spade.  Thank you Nigel, for standing up for all of us, everywhere. All those opposed to the Evil Empire and the NWO are on your side.

Nigel Farage: Euro Empire Collapsing, Bailout River Dry

Another Eurozone country might need a financial bailout soon. Italy - which is the third largest economy that uses the Euro currency - has started plunging in the same direction as Greece and Ireland. It comes as fresh protests sweep across Europe - with people angry at facing tough cuts to pay for it all. RT talks to European Parliament member Nigel Farage, who's the leader of the UK Independence Party.

central bankers want central government. the ECB already has a firm grasp on Europe. if the US falls under TOTAL control of the "federal" reserve, the rothschilds win. FedStoogeOne (Blahblah Oblahblah) has failed in his attempt to sell their thinly veiled marxist agenda to the American People. America is the last domino to fall into the rothschilds' portfolio.

Nigel Farage: Greece in eurozone was a mistake

Greece is being brought to a standstill by another nationwide strike against government debt reduction measures. The twenty-four hour walkout is already the second in the last ten days. It has been shutting down public services, grounding flights and closing schools and hospitals. Violent protests erupted at the end of February when the government unveiled new measures to help curb its debt of more than 400 billion dollars. The austerity package included a rise in consumer taxes and a pension freeze. The EU has pressured Greece into taking this harsh action, but has failed to offer any financial help. Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independance Party, says countries like Greece and Spain should never have been allowed to join the union.

Question time with Nigel Farage

An abridged version of Question time with Nigel Farage

Farage vs Brown

Gordon Brown meets the real opposition when he visits Strasbourg.
For those of you who have asked, Nigel spoke a few moments before Daniel Hannan lambasted Gordon Brown.

This is the transcript:

Mr President, the Prime Minister has received some criticism this afternoon for his comment British jobs for British workers, but you can brush that aside, because from the moment he said it I do not think anybody seriously thought that he would ever, as a British Prime Minister, put the interests of British workers above that of his European dream. My goodness me, you showed that this afternoon, Prime Minister.
It is just a pity that, apart from UKIP, virtually nobody seems to have bothered to turn up to listen to you. You are very popular here. You are very popular indeed because within a few days of the Irish saying no to the Lisbon Treaty, you had rammed that Treaty through the British Parliament, breaking a specific manifesto pledge that you would give the British people a referendum on the Constitutional Treaty.
Shame on you, Prime Minister, for doing that. You have devalued democracy in our country; you have devalued the trust that voters put in you as a British Prime Minister. Of course, we know the reason why. The reason why is that we would have voted no. You said in your speech that none but those on the extremes oppose European Union. Well, that may be right amongst professional career politicians, but a clear majority of the British people want us to have friendship and free trade with the European Union, but do not want to be members of this political Union.
You cannot continue to build this European Union against public opinion. If you do it against the will of the people, you are storing up enormous social and political problems for the future. Please let the peoples of Europe decide their destiny. Do not have it done in parliaments like this and parliaments like Westminster. It will not work!
As far as the economy is concerned, you have told us that somehow you are the economic guru; you are the man who can save the world. Well, I remember very well your first big act as Chancellor when you sold 400 metric tonnes of gold on the worlds exchanges at USD 275 an ounce. At todays valuation, that would be USD 10 billion higher. It was not just the fact that you got it wrong, because we can all get it wrong. It was the fact that you announced in advance how much you were going to sell and on what day you were going to sell it. It was an error so basic that the average A-level economics student even in these educationally devalued times would not have done this. To add to that, you have destroyed our private pension system, and you took away from the Bank of England its ability to regulate the banks and gave it to the tick-box bureaucrats of the FSA in Canary Wharf.
We have not heard an apology. Your Government has apologised for the Amritsar massacre; you have apologised for slavery; you have apologised for virtually everything. Will you please apologise for what you did as British Chancellor, and then perhaps we might just listen to you?

Van Rompuy holds Farage in contempt

EU Council President Herman van Rompuy says he holds Nigel Farage in contempt for the tirade against him during the first-ever official appearance of the EU president in the parliament.

Exterior view of the EP , Brussels
00:00'10"Herman Van Rompuy, EU council President, in French, I am glad about the European ambition I found here this afternoon, I am glad about this sense of emergency that I heard this afternoon ; There is only one contribution for which I can only held in content (on Farages calling him a wet rat")
00:00'32"We have taken special measures to save financial institutions, not because we love them but without them there is no economy. We led a smart monetary policy, we've injected liquidity into the economy which was not done 70 years ago. For at least 16 countries we've created despite all the problems a zone of monetary stability, and in the 1930s there were competitive devaluation; We don't have those now. "
00:01'08""We saved our internal market. It is not perfect, we need to deepen it and Mr Monti will make us concrete proposals , but we did not fall into protectionism as in the 30s"
00:01'25""it is thanks to the EU that the G20 was born; We took the initiative to create this embryo of world governance. It is the first time that old and new powers joined to fight the crisis."
00:01'46""We should not always put the EU on the defensive mode; there are also good things that happened"
00:01'56""We need some important reforms at EU and National levels which will include budgetary choices"
00:02'09""If we say we need more in Research and Development, well then we should forecast those in National budgets and in the EU financial perspectives. This requests budgetary choices, another consequence of the Lisbon Strategy is that all that we proposed as objectives are not always regarded as soft ones, it could well be, hard objectives and there will come a difficult time, there is a demand for reform and there is implementation of the reforms"
00:02'56""At EU level people demand hard measures and you go back to your country I see few results from all that so we need a consistent position"
00:03'09""The method is not all . method only without political commitment is worthless"
00:03'19""For the economic strategy , it is very well to hear that we need binding measures yes ok but "The Lisbon treaty on the economic guidelines does not make provisions for that...it does not include penalties or negative measures when its a matter of implementing the guidelines Have a closer look at art121 "
00:03'19""One word on Greece. I believe that the right message was sent , one of responsibility of the Greek Government who has to manage a very difficult situation, one it has inherited"
00:04'14"" If the present measures are not enough to reach a reduction of 4 % of the deficit in 2010 we will take extra measures, we committed to more monitoring not only following initiative of the European Commission but also the ECB and the World monetary Fund expertise; so we have very well defined responsibility, there is also if necessary an element of solidarity"

Nigel Farage exposes Sarkozy

Nicolas Sarkozy, President in Office of the European Council (Jul-Dec 2008) visits the European Parliament (Strasbourg) on 10 July 2008. He is taken on by Nigel Farage MEP, UKIP leader and Co-President of the Independence/Democracy (IND/DEM) group.

Note on the rejected EU Constitution and Lisbon Treaty:

The people of France and the Netherlands rejected the proposed EU constitution in the 2005 referendums. Since all 27 Member States are required to ratify, the Constitution was dead, but this took a long time to sink in. After this, other countries cancelled a promised referendum and the EU Constitution was re-written as an "amending treaty" or a "reform treaty" and named "Treaty of Lisbon".

On the basis of this deceit, they claimed that no referendums are necessary on the Lisbon Treaty. Ireland was constitutionally required to hold a referendum and on the 12 June 2008 the people of Ireland gave a resounding No to Lisbon. Yet this vote is not being respected and the rule of law is being ignored. The EU leaders agreed at the June 19-20 EU Summit that ratifications must go on. Moreover, 26 Member States are being denied a referendum.

The Lisbon Treaty establishes a new "European Union" with joint citizenship - an EU "federal" State that is technically and politically empowered to centralize more power in Brussels. The treaty also stipulates the militarisation of the Union in order to 'police the world' just like the US does today.

Who is Nigel Farage ?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nigel Paul Farage (pronounced /fəˈrɑːʒ/;[1][2] born 3 April 1964) is a British politician and is the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) [3], a position he previously held from September 2006 to November 2009. He is a current Member of the European Parliament for South East England and co-chairs the Eurosceptic Europe of Freedom and Democracy group.

Farage was a founding member of the UKIP, having left the Conservative Party in 1992 after they signed the Maastricht Treaty. Having unsuccessfully campaigned in European and Westminster parliamentary elections for UKIP since 1994, he was elected as the MEP for South East England in the 1999 European Parliament Election and was re-elected in 2004 and 2009.

In September 2006, Farage became the UKIP Leader and led the party through the 2009 European Parliament Election in which it received the second highest share of the popular vote, defeating Labour and the Liberal Democrats with over two million votes. However he stepped down in November 2009 to concentrate on contesting the Speaker John Bercow's seat of Buckingham in the 2010 general election.

Following the 2010 General Election, Farage failed to unseat John Bercow and only received the third highest share of the vote in the constituency. Shortly after the polls opened on 6 May 2010, Nigel Farage was injured in a plane crash in Northamptonshire. The two-seated PZL-104 Wilga 35A had been towing a pro-UKIP banner when it flipped over and crashed shortly after takeoff. Both Farage and the pilot were hospitalised with minor injuries.[4]

In November 2010, Farage successfully stood in the 2010 UKIP leadership contest,[5] following the resignation of its leader, Malcolm Pearson. Farage was also ranked 41st (out of 100) in The Daily Telegraph's Top 100 most influential right-wingers poll in October 2009, citing his media savvy and his success with UKIP in the European Elections.[6] Farage was ranked 58th in the 2010 list compiled by Iain Dale and Brian Brivati for the Daily Telegraph.


Nigel Farage Quotes

I think that politics needs a bit of spicing up.
We seek an amicable divorce from the European Union and its replacement with a genuine free-trade agreement, which is what my parents' generation thought we'd signed up for in the first place.
I have been called a great many things in my time - that's politics.
When people stand up and talk about the great success that the EU has been, I'm not sure anybody saying it really believes it themselves anymore.
Basically, Herman Van Rompuy wants the European Union to become a debt union, which may be acceptable to some of the southern countries who are effectively bust. To the northern countries, it is not.
The EU is mired in deep structural crisis. Greece, Portugal and Ireland cannot survive inside the Euro.
And what is the reaction of the British political class? Well the Lib Dems, still think that the Euro is a success! I don't quiet think where Cleggy gets this from, I don't know. Perhaps he is considering an alternative career, as a stand up comedian, once he's out of politics.
The Euro Titanic has now hit the iceberg - and there simply aren't enough lifeboats to go round.
If we are just going to have a fudged referendum on 'do we stay in or go further?' then that's not good enough.
We wouldn't want to be like the Swiss, would we? That would be awful! We'd be rich!
Once again, I challenge the Prime Minister to have an open debate with me on why he believes we must stay part of this failing, corrupt EU. The future of our nation is at stake. Mr Cameron, you have my phone number.
Rather than bring peace and harmony, the EU will cause insurgency and violence.
I'm not for sale, neither is UKIP.
In scores of our cities and market towns, this country, in a short space of time, has frankly become unrecognisable.
[on gay marriage] It is the Conservative Party's support that will suffer most from this proposal. It wasn't in Cameron's manifesto, there was no public call to do this and yet he is pursuing headlong a policy that is going to enormously damage and split his own party, particularly in the Shires, and I think gay marriage is one of those issues where attitudes in the big metropolitan centres, compared to the Shires, are very, very sharply different.
David Cameron is not a Conservative, he's a social democrat.
We're the only party in British politics who actually forbid former members of the British National Party or extreme organizations from even becoming members.
We have had, out of our 1,700 candidates, a handful that have embarrassed us.
The advantage UKIP has is we are not made up of people who are part of the career political class. Nearly all of us have actually had jobs in the real world and that is a very marked contrast to what I see on the front benches at Westminster today.
[on grammar schools] The seven per cent of people that go to the private schools in this country are now dominating politics, the media and sport in a way they haven't done for a hundred years. What is wrong with being a party that says we want bright kids from poor backgrounds to have the best opportunity?
We currently have a Romanian-led crime epidemic in London and we've just got to get a grip.
The Conservative Party used to talk about success, business, enterprise, ambition, and now it talks about gay marriage, wind turbines and upping the amount of money we spend on foreign aid.
The reason the Tory Party are doing badly is they've got a leader who doesn't speak or sound like a Conservative. Frankly, they've become another brand of simple social democracy.
I think, in the end, what is going to break up the Eurozone is going to be violence on a very large scale.
The UKIP fox is in the Westminster hen house.
[on hearing foreign languages being spoken by immigrants on British trains] It was not until we got past Grove Park that I could hear English being audibly spoken in the carriage. Does that make me feel slightly awkward? Yes it does. I don't understand them. I don't feel very comfortable in that situation and I don't think the majority of British people do.
Somebody said I'm David Cameron's worst nightmare. Well, that's not good enough. I want to be Ed Miliband's worst nightmare, too.
[on the Scotland Independence Vote] This is not about Independence, this is about breaking free from England.
I think it is very interesting that, when Mr Silvester was saying [that the country was being flooded by God because of legalisation of homosexual marriage] in 2012 and 2013 as a Conservative town councillor in Henley, it was not a news story. But suddenly, he switches to UKIP and continues the same thing and gets on the national news. I think that shows you and tells you all you need to know... The establishment, the status quo, the big businesses, the big Eurocrats and our three so-called main political parties are scared witless by what UKIP is doing because we are striking a chord not just for ordinary people but for many elements in the business community as well. They will try to do whatever they can to shoot us down... If you accept defectors from the Conservative party, you will always have embarrassments... Mr Silvester joined us from the Conservatives very recently. He said exactly the same things when he was in the Conservative party; now he is UKIP, you are interested.
[on breastfeeding in public] I'm not particularly bothered about it, but I know a lot of people do feel very uncomfortable, and look, this is just a matter of common sense, isn't it? I think that, given that some people feel very embarrassed by it, it isn't too difficult to breastfeed a baby in a way that's not openly ostentatious... Frankly, that's up to Claridge's, and I very much take the view that if you're running an establishment you should have rules... Or perhaps sit in the corner, or whatever it might be - that's up to Claridge's. It's not an issue that I get terribly hung up about, but I know particularly people of the older generation feel awkward and embarrassed by it.
Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the EU, has all the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk.
If you said to me, would I like to see over the next ten years a further five million people come in to Britain and if that happened we'd all be slightly richer, I'd say 'Actually, do you know what, I'd rather we weren't slightly richer and I'd rather we had communities that felt more united and I'd rather have a situation where young, unemployed British people had a realistic chance of getting a job'... So, yes, I do think the social side of this matters more than pure market economics... Let's be flexible on work permits, let's recognise that we do have some skills shortages in the British economy - which is very much a failure of our education system... But in terms of immigration, in terms of people coming to settle, I would suggest that for up to a five-year period we don't have people coming to settle until we sort out the mess.
In many cases, women make different choices in life to the ones that men make simply for ­biological reasons... If a woman with a client base has a child and takes two or three years off work, she is worth far less to the employer when she comes back than when she goes away because her client base cannot be stuck rigidly to her... Young, able women who are prepared to sacrifice a family life and stick with their careers do as well, if not better, than men... I do not believe there is any discrimination against women at all in the big banks, brokerage houses, Lloyds of London and everyone else in the City... [Is this situation fair?] I can't change biology.
[a woman at the back of the Question Time TV audience is yelling that Nigel Farage is an elitist and a racist.] You've got some voters here [Russell Brand], you ought to stand, these are your voters. They're lovely people, aren't they?
[on first hearing of his Party's trouncing in 2015, looking terrified] As to the next chapter in the History of UKIP, it will be a different one.
When it comes to entertainment, the BBC should be proud of its 'crown jewels' such as Strictly Come Dancing (2004) and dramas such as Doctor Who (2005). They have become valuable global brands as well as programmes hugely appreciated by British audiences. Should the BBC feel it has to come up with its own version of every commercial TV genre, from dating formats to home makeover shows? I don't think so.
[Would you like to be Prime Minister?] I don't think that's my role in life, I don't think I'd be very good at it, either.
[Radio phone-in show] We have to stand up for our Judeo-Christian Traditions. We have to say: You can't come here and expect us to change to accommodate you.
[phone in]I think our compassion, the EU interpretation of compassion, could be a very real threat to our security.
[phone in]Over the centuries we've had refugees from different religions come to Britain... The Jewish Community have privately observed their Faith without seeking to change, let's say the Church of England, the established Faith of this Country, that is a very good example of coexistence and I'm quite sure [caller] that the vast majority of Muslims worshipers are exactly the same. However, there are a number of people from the extremes of Islam who seem to think their Mission in Britain is to do away with us as a Christian Country and convert us to Islam or Sharia Law or whatever it may be. And I just think when you look at Australia, Australia says to people we welcome all of you we don't care where you come from, we don't care what your religion is, we don't care what your color is, but if you come here just recognize you're joining our Society. And I hope that satisfies your fears.
[Could a British person do your Secretary's job just as well?] Nobody else could do that job, not unless they were married to me.
[Radio Interview, answering "Why is it Romanians in particular that would make you uncomfortable if they moved in next door? What's the difference?"] Oh, I think you know.
The reason we've got more expensive holidays is David and George and Carbon Taxes.
[There are more people over 65 than under 16 in Britain so why not use immigration to fix the fiscal gap like other countries? What's your alternative?] Well, there is one slight problem with the argument that if you have an aging population you need to have mass immigration to re-balance it, the problem is that immigrants get old too! So actually, if you follow the logic of that argument, goodness knows where we will be.
It's not about skin color it's about Nationality.
[You want to enable discrimination in your manifesto, not employing immigrants if we don't want to?] What I said was, that small companies should be able to presume in favor of employing British people without fearing the Law, that's all. [Discrimination, then?] I don't think there's anything wrong with saying we should try to look after British workers first, if we possibly can, I think that's a very sensible, rational thing to say.
The apparatchiks of Vote Leave don't want to work with me. So be it.
[You've mentioned scrapping tuition fees for Science and Engineering, is my Linguistics "not Valuable"?] Of course not, no one is suggesting that degrees in all sorts of things is not valuable. What I am suggesting is that we are sending too many people to University. What I am suggesting is that we have downplayed the learning of trades and skills in this country through a bizarre form of snobbery, it's as if: "Oh, how awful, my son or daughter wants to learn an actual skill! No, no! They must go to University!" So I'd like to see fewer people go to University, but what we have said is this, in the short term, there is a chronic shortage, we talked about STEM subjects earlier on today, and when I go to meet Engineering Companies, Metal Production Companies..[Chairman: Why is Science, Medicine, Technology, Engineering and Maths superior to learning about what, Linguistics?] Because as we've discussed and debated on this program already, we don't have enough Engineers... [Chairman: What about Historians, to learn when the Battle of Waterloo was?] we haven't got enough Nurses in our Hospitals, so where there are skills shortages we would want to get rid of tuition fees. So if it does help to close a chronic skills gap, that's a good thing.
[I'd like to vote UKIP but heard on social media you're going to repeal the foxhunting ban if successful, I could never vote for something so abhorrent? Reassure me?] We have no party policy, on foxhunting and certainly UKIP MPs in parliament would not be whipped, whether it's abortion or foxhunting, or any of these issues, they should be decided by conscience. If you look at our manifesto, you will see no commitment to repealing the foxhunting ban.
[You're quoted as saying "Parts of Britain are now unrecognizable and look like a foreign land", tell me about that?] Unrecognisable, I'd have to say, yeah. You take a Borough like Newham, yeah, where 80% of primary school pupils come from families in which English is not the first language. The first basic rule of people integrating together, regardless of their background or religion, but actually communities being together, is they've got to speak the same language.
[lead up to 2015 Election] The credibility of all the party leaders is on the line next year.
It's not bound by political correctness and people find that attractive
The manifesto was nonsense.
I want us to get our Country back, that's my motivation.
[Are there any circumstances in which you would have a pact with the Conservative Party, you rather suggested you might?] I rather suggested I'd do a deal with the Devil, if it got us back the independence of our country and our ability to run our own affairs! I'm not interested in this usual politics of trying to climb the greasy pole.
If there are people out there who are uncomfortable with, for example, gay marriage, they should be allowed to have that opinion without being utterly condemned. And I do think that if we believe in tolerance, that that has to be a two-way street. And we've rather lost sight of that. [Tolerate the people who are against it, but the people who are against it should tolerate it?] Tolerate the people who are against it, within reason. Sensibly, sensibly, and I'm certainly referring to the active Christian communities. And for that matter Muslim communities and all other Faiths. [Page 3? Your colleague Douglas Carswell was here and he was glad it looked like the end of Page 3. He didn't like it] In a political party we've all got different opinions and I haven't got a problem with Page 3. It's a free press for goodness sake! If you buy The Sun newspaper, and it's got Page 3, you know what you're getting.
It looks like Remain will edge it.
I unconcede.
Denmark could be next: Dexit. The Netherlands could be next: Nexit. Sweden could be next, which I suppose would be Sexit.
[addressing the European Parliament, 2016, on the British voters' decision to vacate the European Union] I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives, or worked in business, or worked in trade, or indeed ever created a job.[Schultz: The fact that you're claiming that nobody has done a decent job in their life, you can't really say that, sorry.] No, you're quite right Mr. Schultz, UKIP used to protest against the establishment and now the establishment protests against UKIP, so something has happened here.
The first brick in the European wall has fallen.
[Final Speech and Press Conference before the Vote] [You've been accused of poisoning the political debate with the "Breaking Point" poster and accusing the Remain Campaign of politically exploiting Jo Cox's death, are you proud of the way you and the Leave Campaign have conducted themselves?] Well I've been accused of doing all sorts of ghastly things since about 2004. I was condemned for suggesting we should have an Australian-style points system. I mean, that was considered monstrous. I was called something really nasty in 2004 by the Home Secretary of the day for daring to suggest that allowing poor, poor former Communist Countries into the European Union would lead to a big flow of people. So I am used to being roundly condemned. If you take on the Establishment and you challenge their assertions, that is what happens to you. But I believe, as I said at the start, when I spoke earlier, that we have forced the Referendum, we have changed the political agenda, we have even changed the language and debate in this Country. And I think that if we look back, I mean, obviously there's been this horrendous incident, but I think generally, I think, most of the unpleasantness in the Referendum, has been effectively a Civil War between various Conservative Individuals. And I think the conduct of the Referendum apart from that has, compared with the Scottish Referendum, actually been pretty measured and pretty sensible.
[Resignation Speech, 11 days after the Brexit Vote] During the Referendum Campaign I said "I want my Country Back!" And what I'm saying today is "I want my Life Back!" And it begins right now! Thank you!
[Victory Speech] We will have done it without having to fight, without a single bullet being fired.
[Is it actually going to happen or have the people who Voted Leave been sold a pup? And have been told they can control immigration when in fact they can't?] Well, we can control immigration, all we need is a Conservative Party Government with the will to do it.
[The £350m a week we send to the EU, which we no longer will send to the EU, can you guarantee that's going to go to the NHS?] No I can't, and I never would have made that claim, that was one of the mistakes that I think that the Vote Leave Campaign made. [Hang on a moment, that was one of your adverts.] Well, it wasn't one of my adverts, I can assure you.[Well, that was one of the Leave Campaign adverts] It was, it was [and that money was going to go to the NHS] And I think they made a mistake.[That's why people, many people have voted.] They made a mistake in doing that, but what I can tell you is that we have a nice feather-bed..[You're saying that after 17million people have Voted for "Leave"] Yep [based, I don't know how many people voted on the basis of that advert, but that was a huge part of the propaganda, you're now saying that's a mistake?]
[on the possibility of another Scottish Independence Referendum] Is Nicola Sturgeon really going to hold a Referendum against Independence? Because that's what she'd be doing.
[In the event of Remain 'edging it'] In a 52-48 referendum, this would be unfinished business by a long way.
