We”ll Huff, and We’ll Puff …

and we’ll blow your house down!

The house referred to is the European Union, which instead of on sand, or something relatively benign, appears to have been built in the crater of a huge volcano – which is now about to erupt with stupendous force.

To make a point absolutely clear right at the outset, I have to say that I am no lover of politicians. On the contrary, I think they are the biggest bunch of liars, crooks, and misbegotten ne’er-do-wells that ever walked the face of the earth. And Tony Blair was not the worst of them, as I once thought, though he must be very high up in the list of contenders for that most dubious of honours.

Having said that, there are exceptions, and this is a fact that that I must also acknowledge. These are the few that appear to have grasped the fundamental problems that face us all, and who are not afraid to stand up and call a spade a spade. So much the better if they have the gift of oratory, and for such a combination two people only come to mind – George Galloway, and Nigel Farage.

I am convinced that either of these two, should they ever decide to leave politics, would rival Blaster Bates as my favourite after-dinner speaker. We are in many cases talking about the pure entertainment value of their speeches.

You can judge for yourself!

You may not agree with Nigel’s politics, but I think you will have to admit after seeing this that the man knows what he is talking about:-

Its rather like chopping a stone in half, and expecting to get twice as much blood out of it.

He’s right – there are not enough lifeboats!
