I have spent all day watching and enjoying the other videos of his speeches to the EU parliament. They call him the Oral Assassin and I can understand why. He has quite a lot to say about Greece and the EU. I have found a new hero! Thank you so much to the original poster of this thread

Interesting. Personally I respect a curious mix of politicians (Churchill, Thatcher, Tony Benn, Ken Livingston & Boris) all really because when you voted for them, you got pretty much what it said on the tin.
As far as Nigel Farage is concerned he's certainely in the same vein - no surprises there! The only thing I can't quite work out is whether or not to admire his "forthrightness" or cringe at his amazing direct frontal verbal assaults. I quite agree there is much common sense underlying the points he makes, but I do wonder if going in with all guns blazing, all of the time, may perhaps actually reduce a degree of emphasis of some of those points in the shear pace of the attack. I recall some of Churchills greatest speeches were quietly delivered - but with core points that cut to the bone.
Nevertheless like him or not he's definately one of those rare animals - a politician who says, in extraordinarly clear terms, exactly what he thinks.
