Russell Brand Is Right: Farage Is a ‘Poundland Enoch Powell’ – Beastrabban\’s Weblog

Enoch Powell

Enoch Powell.

Yesterday I posted a piece about how Russell Brand, speaking on the BBC’s Question Time, had called Nigel Farage a ‘Poundland Enoch Powell’, writes the Beast.

Now the Telegraph has published a piece proving Brand correct. According to the Torygraph, back in 1995 the future Fuehrer of UKIP asked for Scowly Powelly’s endorsement when standing as a candidate for Eastleigh in 1994. The next year, Farage asked Powell himself to stand as a candidate for UKIP in the European elections. Powell declined, but did later give his support to three UKIP candidates, standing for elections to parliament between 1994 and 1997.

A fan of Enoch Powell.

The article goes on to state that Farage has never concealed his admiration for Powell.

    So is politics still insults, mudslinging and ‘people labelling’ , or can we all rise up to a less childish more sincere (dare I say it) benevolent effort to truly contribute. Anyone can think up cynical catch names…and throw them at one another…very populist. It takes true integrity to make positive waves in governing.

    And Brand is so full of vacuous garbage as well as lacking the equipment to stand for office..empty vessel making loud noise.and wholly forgettable.
