I have to say I enjoy the other right-winger on LBC (Nick Ferrari?) far more. Farage seemed only to get people who agreed with him put through.
Same old nonsense.

This is what he said and people complained.

It follows a backlash over his comments about the Black Lives Matter organisation, which he labelled a “far-left Marxist” group and compared to the Taliban.

His true colours have been shown.

People thought he was an ardent Brexiteer. In reality be appears to be more of a far right neo-nazi than anything else.

It seems, unfortunately, that Ms Deakin's letter to the Master was unsuccessful in persuading him to change his mind about making Farage a prefect: https://www.channel4.com/news/nigel-far ... sm-fascism

"one teacher said Farage was “a fascist, but that was no reason why he would not make a good prefect,”"

I wonder how much that reflects the English public school system!
Same old nonsense.

I discovered him on LBC a while ago and couldn't bear to listen. He was clearly using the station as a platform for his own political agenda. Ferrari I used to like but I got fed up with him not letting anyone even finish a sentence, let alone finish making their point.
