What he thinks they want to hear: Farage attacks Royals in speech to far-right Aussies

What a drip: He might be a big hit with foreign Conservatives, but this is how British people see Nigel Farage.

This is typical populist behaviour. Nigel Farage told Australian Conservatives what he thought they wanted to hear.

So he praised up the Queen, but then attacked other Royals for social justice and environmental campaigns because he knew that this would be popular with his audience.

Did he mean what he said? Who cares?

The only thing that matters to Mr Farage will be the effect his words had on his audience – that they leave their conference believing what he has told them about the UK, and that he is their ally.

He’s drumming up support from rich foreigners.

Nigel Farage has derided the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their “irrelevant” social justice and environmental campaigns while abusing Prince Charles and describing the late Queen Mother as an “overweight, chain-smoking gin drinker”, in an incendiary speech to an Australian rightwing political conference.

Farage’s speech to Sydney’s Conservative Political Action Conference – from which media were barred – ranged across his views on Brexit, media bias and the United Nations, but he reserved his fiercest condemnation for members of the royal family, including princes Charles and Harry, and the Queen Mother.

    Not too distantly ago such comments would be classed as high treason. Perhaps we should reapply that charge to Farage as high treason carries the ultimate sanction of life imprisonment.

    Can’t he just stay in Australia and don’t bother coming back?

    Nige doesn’t like the Prince Harry of the modern day, the one who marries a woman of mixed. Nige much preferred him back when he was dressing up as Nazi Generals at fancy dress parties.

    The Queen Mother was a chain-smoker? This from a man who lost a b*ll*ck to cancer and yet still smokes? And given how he’s always got a pint in his hand for publicity pics, he’s got no right to talk about someone’s else’s drinking habits either! I’m less surprised about his ire aimed towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – being ‘woke’ and mixed race is hardly going to appeal to this bitter twunt.
