Farage meets his match in Tory Anna Soubry

The Spectator's  Sebastian  Payne has asked  Is  Nigel Farage’s magic disappearing? afte a pisspower performance on BBC  On Question Time  last Thursday  his 15th appearance in four years which maybe the BBC can explain.

The Ukip leader was taken to task by an audience member who asked him to ‘stop scaremongering the majority of people’ 

But it was Tory MP Anna  who demolished Farage with the sort of attack others should have been doing for years.

The Tory defence minister (and former TV anchor) Anna Soubry finished off the attack with an impassioned defence of immigration, in language that Farage usually uses to attack it. This left him flummoxed. Here’s what she had to say:

You do not talk facts, you talk prejudice. You scaremonger, you put fear in people’s hearts. Times are tough, we know that. But when times are tough, there is a danger and history tells us when things are not good, you turn to the stranger and you blame them. And you shouldn’t. That is wrong and I’m proud of our country’s history. I’m proud that people  come here, these are good people. Sometimes not all of them are, like people in our country, but they come here to work


I'm sorry I couldn't copy the video directl but you can se it here.

Maybe Ms Soubry reminded Mr Farage of Matron at his public school of Dulwich College  which this man of the people attended

But maybe it takes a |Tory to argue the case against Farage as his supporters are hardly likely to listen to the Liberal Left no matter how much they expose the misinformation and darn-right lies coming from Farage.

Maybe he started a strategy of blowing debates in the hope that a string of poor performances will see him included in the leaders debate at the next General Elections.

But for now it worth watching the smug bastard looking uncomfortable .

Its a lesson all should learn stand up to this bully and he will deflate on sulk away.

  1. Well it is the Tories who have most to lose from the rise of UKIP, A strong UKIP vote in 2015 is about the only thing that could deny them a majority after the next general election and force them into another coalition, either with the Lib Dems or with UKIP itself. Personally I would much rather have the lib dems in power than ukip
