Did traffic keep Farage off Question Time – or was he afraid to be grilled over ‘scaremongering’ party political broadcast?

Nigel Farage: Some have nicknamed him 'The Fuhrage' in recognition of his attitude to Johnny Foreigner.

Does nobody else think it is interesting that Nigel Farage, who has appeared on the BBC’s Question Time almost as often as David Dimbleby (it seems), should miss the show in the week a UKIP party political broadcast was roundly condemned?

Farage reckoned he was stuck in traffic – and maybe he was, but it seems odd that he should miss last night’s show when he had always managed to be on time in the past.

It would have been a great opportunity for him, what with David Cameron on the ropes over his hopeless ‘renegotiation’ of the UK’s EU membership conditions.

But, if his party political broadcast is any indicator, Farage doesn’t want to talk about the issues at all.

It seems he would rather attack other countries for their ethnic characteristics.

Nigel Farage’s plans to take David Cameron to task over his proposals for EU reform were last night thwarted as traffic problems prevented him from taking part in BBC show Question Time.

The Ukip leader was held up by traffic on the A1 as he tried to make his way to the show from Bradford, leaving his deputy Paul Nuttall to take his place.

Mr Farage tweeted: “Now been at a standstill for 90 mins on the A1. #bbcqt doubtful. Damn.”

Shortly before the BBC Question Time Twitter account announced: “We were making plans for @nigel_farage – but travel problems mean he’ll be replaced by @paulnuttalukip. #bbcqt”

10 Thoughts to “Did traffic keep Farage off Question Time – or was he afraid to be grilled over ‘scaremongering’ party political broadcast?”

    VERY relevant question for all racists – If you peel a black man, a white man and a yellow man,what colour are they then?

    1. Mike Sivier

      Unfortunately, you’re suggestion is based on a mistake.
      A white racist would NEVER peel a white man because they would naturally assume he was superior.

      1. Only bigots consider white black brown and yellow skinned people to be a different race, we are all on human race so there is no such thing as a white racist a black racist or a yellow or brown skinned racist, just black brown white and yellow bigots who think they are somehow different.

      2. Mike Sivier

        Many of those people are in UKIP, of course.

      3. Who caught him out? there is no evidence to show he told lies, and he has never shunned any opportunity to forward the sensible option of leaving the eussr to the nations who don’t believe in democracy.

      4. Mike Sivier

        The French police caught him out. He was pretending there had been an assassination attempt on him, and the French police would corroborate it – and the French police denied it flatly.

  2. Just a coward. Why oh why can’t the public see this idiot for what he is?

  3. NMac

    Farage has already been caught out telling lies about a so-called traffic incident in France. The man is, as “chriskitcher” rightly says, an idiot, but a dangerous idiot.

  4. A bigot is a bigot no matter what their politics,(Facts) French police statement we can neither confirm or repudiate as to the facts of what Mr Farage has stated as it was not reported to us at the time.(Get your facts right).

    1. Mike Sivier

      It was in the French magazine Libération in early January. The article is in French but there’s a handy translation here:

      https://tompride.wordpress.com/2016/01/06/french-magazine-proves-farage-lied-about-the-so-called-assassination-attempt/

      My facts are right.
