Default Knighthood for Nigel Farage?

According to the Telegraph Ladbrookes think Farage will be getting a knighthood pretty soon. Personally I wouldn't be in a rush to reward him. His MEP pension is reward enough.

Reward him for what? Being an opportunistic **** of no principles?

Having said that, he wouldn't be the first one of those to get a gong.

As much as part of me would dearly love to see him strung up, I believe that the British taxpayers have already given this utter git far too much.

I see a bashful fan has popped up and voted to give him a knighthood

Surely it says something about your man if you are too embarrassed to admit to being a fanboy. Sadly, it's a public poll and the 'orrible truth will be revealed.

And think of the poor people he would be locked up with. Nobody deserves that.

Yes - it's public. There for all to see.

I voted nothing.

I voted nothing also.

Although it might be amusing to have him sent to work for the EU offices as office boy.

Lequel, Nige or his sycophantic dwarf?

Actually the roads are fairly quiet at the moment, should be a doddle.

He'd probably still blame immigrants for being late....

I voted knighthood asap, but in reality I'm only here for the comments.

Remember Thatcher and her poll tax?
Remember the protests in Trafalgar Square?
Ever thought to ask yourself why it didn't catch on?
Could it have been because it was a stupid idea, thought up by stupid politicians that the people didn't want?
Now consider Farage and his UKIP party.
Ever thought to ask yourself why it didn't die out? Why it smouldered and smouldered until it caught fire?
Could it have been because Farage was pushing at an unlocked door but one being held shut by an establishment boot worn by these same stupid politicians?
Like him or loath him, Farage appealed to a great many and achieved something that many don't like, but he did it using constitutional means and the ballot box.
I wonder if in years to come UKIP will be remembered as a latter day Anti Corn Law League, a movement aimed at repealing the hated Corn Laws that some see as a decisive shift toward free trade in Britain.

Nice to read something that isn't full of poison! I doubt your post will be well received! As for me, I'm neutral as to should he be honoured or not. I'm just completely happy that we are out of the E.U. A great start to the year for me and I do get a kick out of the 'remoaners' moaning. All these anti Farage posts sum it up really!
