DatSyn News - The Times names UKIP leader Nigel Farage as Briton of the Year

The Times, an influential British paper owned by News UK, part of News Corp, the massive media conglomerate of Rupert Murdoch that owns the likes of The Sun, FOX News, HarperCollins, and the New York Post, has named its Briton of the Year – Nigel Farage, the leader of the UK Independence Party.
Why? Well, apparently he changed the political spectrum of the UK, offering up an alternative in a world where Tories and the Labour Party both fight each other while completely ignoring the Green Party. Thus, UKIP has become, for some, the salvation of politics, and for others, the sign that British politics has turned to such shit that people are willing to jump onto anti-immigration and casual discrimination in search of something different.
Nigel Farage is at the center of this – the smooth talking head of a party that conspicuously aligns itself with some of the most despicable profit-mongerers on planet Earth, in the name of the people – and thus, due to his position within UKIP, he has been named Briton of the Year.
To the outrage of thousands. Why him, they ask? Why not someone like, say, William Pooley? He traveled to West Africa, treated people with Ebola, caught it, survived – and then went back. Stupid, yet selfless – and a lot braver than most people.
And if we’re talking about stirring up the political spectrum – what about Russell Brand? His YouTube channel has 887,258 subscribers at the time of writing, and 64,617,915 views over 496 videos. Wouldn’t you call that sparking interest in politics, especially an alternative viewing of them through analysing media manipulation and propaganda? He appeared on BBC’s Question Time in what some called an unproductive shitfest, and has had several interviews on The Guardian and other papers that have led people to deem him a bit spastic and unorganized – yet that doesn’t change the fact that he’s done a lot towards getting people into the conversation. - See more at: http://www.datsyn.com/article/3479/20...
