    Who will be paying tax, if any, in the UK but using Spanish (or whatever) medical services via their E111.

    If that's all he earned as a stockbroker, then yes it is fairly unimpressive.

    Early evidence of Farage's opinions.

    More reports from Farage's past.

    Ukip founder Alan Sked: 'The party has become a Frankenstein's monster'

    "The de facto leader of Ukip since 1999 has been a racist political failure," Sked counters. He means, of course, Nigel Farage. But even if Farage's recent statements about not wanting to live next door to Romanians suggest he is xenophobic, is there any proof he was racist when he and Sked worked together in the mid-1990s? Sked laughs at the question and recalls an incident from 1997 when the two men were arguing over the kind of candidates that Ukip should have standing at the looming general election. "He wanted ex-National Front candidates to run and I said, 'I'm not sure about that,' and he said, 'There's no need to worry about the ****** vote. The nig-nogs will never vote for us.'"

    The man is clearly a racist and a bigot. There are letters from his schooldays, in interviews with his previous political colleagues, and even in more recent video clips. His friendship with Trump not withstanding, the evidence is clear.

    Surely it's time just to 'fess up and own it. UKIP is the UK's own far-right nationalist party along the lines of France's FN, Hungary's Jobbik and Greece's Golden Dawn. He might deny it because he knows it loses votes, but it's clearly still true.

    Although the Spanish authorities then reclaim the expenses of those medical services from the NHS in Britain - £247 million a year a few years ago (so probably more now).

    Dont know why you try to show reason..your talking to the unconvinced whose reasoning in these areas is a closed shop,opinionated and biased..why should they even want to be convinced.There is only one tune in such issues for many.
    Reality is a picture has many sides, views and opinions and to each person they are convinced their view is correct,,,,to be open to a discussion is one thing.to be bigoted in a view is another.

    Q: What did Mr super patriot Brit Farage forget to wear when he was busy bum-licking Donald Trump in that gold plated lift the other day?

    Was it because too many of the people who died in war to preserve our democracy were dusky-skinned Commonwealth citizens?

    No. It's because like many on the far-right, he's not a real patriot. Look at the papers that support him. Owned by foreigners, and based off-shore so they don't contribute to our tax base.

    Lovely!
