I never used to be much interested in politics. I just voted Lib Dem regular as clockwork. Because they were ‘liberal’. And they were ‘democratic’ too. What more could anyone ask for?
That all ended when 95% of the Lib Dem MPs in parliament voted for the illiberal and undemocratic smoking ban. I’ve not voted for them since.
So I jumped at the chance to watch Nigel Farage being quizzed by representatives of British ‘youth’ today. I only caught the last 20 minutes of the live event. But caught up with the rest on YouTube. It starts 37 minutes in.
I thought he did pretty well, particularly since some of his young interrogators seemed to think that UKIP roasted and ate babies every Sunday lunch.
I think all the other UK party leaders are doing the same show. But I won’t bother to watch them. They don’t smoke. Or pretend not to.
