    A couple of observations:
    1. You need to associate with people who are not obsessed with single view dog whistle politics - it might do you some good.
    2. A sarcastic comment about the competence of the Labour/Conservative parties does not come across as particularly clever from an avowed Donald Trump fanboi.

    In which case, it's all the sadder that some people have attacked her on here.

    You may be right - I have no idea.
    But my comment was a response to Lexus' point about childish attacks on people - Greta Thunberg has been on the receiving end of a number of these from posters on here.

    So she is a public figure... she speaks out on an issue... and some people don't like it... and that makes the responses childish and you can dismiss them as such. And typify them as ''attacks'' because that sounds better in the context of a 16 year old child.

    I didn't notice you using this defence when Trump had a baby blimp of him hovering over London [like it or not, that was a 'childish attack']... it couldn't just be you want to dismiss criticism and this is the easiest way to do it?

    Not me. I said I feel sorry for her. And I do.

    Next time try it in standard English, 'Occasional Commenter'.

    Agree. The establishment parties have no idea what's about to hit them.

    Gerald Batten follows me on Twitter. Which tells you something about something, I guess. Maybe that he needs to be more discriminating about such things.

    Nigel Farage is 'Just another millionaire stockbroker who looks down at the working classes' says UKIP advisor and MEP Candidate.

    My comment had nothing to do with that girl my targeted remark was clear in context and direction.

    Wonderful stuff. The EU referendum has certainly put the cat among the pigeons.

    Anyone planning to vote for the Brexit Party probably hasn't lost their marbles. It has to be doubted whether they had any in the first place.

    That is just the sort of numpty remark that got 17.4 million to vote for it in the first place. Carry on, you are doing a fine job for Nigel.

    More of the same discrediting those with whom you disagree.
