There is a wee video that has been doing the rounds of web sites in the U.K.
Here is a politician speaking his mind. I just had to compare him to our lot.
First of all, we have damn few politicians who can speak without notes. They stand up to make their point and you would swear they were trying to convince their neck-ties. They stand there with their heads bowed muttering and spluttering their speech, as they read it out from a sheet of paper.
The main difference though is the fact that Farage has balls. He can stand there and make a speech [with only occasional reference to his notes] and he doesn’t give a shite that everyone else is patently wishing he would drop dead. You only have to look at the faces around the hall. They hate him, and they hate what he is saying, but he says it anyway. He has a magnificent Fuck You attitude.
Can you imaging Cowen giving a speech like that? Apart from the fact that he cannot speak and prefers to stutter, splutter and stumble his way though his clichés, He just wouldn’t have the guts to do it.
Oh no. Our lot are cringingly subservient. They wouldn’t dare say a single word that would offend their lords and masters in Brussels. Cowen and Lenihan are pathetic in their attitude to Europe. When Merkel tells them to bankrupt the country to pay back German investors, they just cannot wait to do it. Bankrupting Ireland is the very least they can do to earn a nod of approval. I swear if Merkel asked Cowen to cull half the population, he would agree without blinking. Our politicians are spineless obsequious grovellers who will do anything to please Brussels, whatever the consequences.
They are just a bunch of pathetic wankers.
I wonder if the UKIP accepts members from Ireland?
