UKIP leader visits flooded village

Yeovil Express: NIGEL Farage says charity should begin at home NIGEL Farage says charity should begin at home

NIGEL Farage, the UKIP leader, has accused the Government of a “lethargic and inadequate” response to the floods and said foreign aid spending should be suspending while the floods crisis was tackled.

Speaking during a visit to flood-stricken Burrowbridge this weekend, Mr
Farage said it was ''basic common sense'' to suspend international aid while the country was dealing with the aftermath of recent extreme weather.
''Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that a government's primary duty is to the well-being of its own citizens. Charity begins at home and it is not mean-spirited to say that, it is just basic common sense.”

Well said Mr Farage, foreign aid should be stopped anyway as we haven't got the money to give away especially to countries with space programs and nuclear weapons.
Hugo101 please get a life, fed up of the gay community bleating on because a person may wish to express a different view to the ones held by themselves.

Nigel Farage along with all the other bandwagon jumpers including Liddell Grainger our very own publicity seeking sycophant will now, in hindsight say whatever they think is going to appeal most to score points against their opponents. Rather than TALK about this disaster after it has happened, If any of these self serving buffoons had anything about them they'd have DONE something about it beforehand. Muppets the lot of them

Does Farage's apparent 'concern' about UK funding mean that he now intends to 'repatriate' his £millions back to the UK mainland, where it will become taxable?

Or will he continue with his 'form' of foreign aid by keeping it all to himself and away from the clutches of the UK HMRC?

Of course it doesn't!

He's just another Tory boy like Cameron, Clegg and Milliband...

So now the Socialist party, are calling the Leader of the Labour Partiy, a Tory Boy, like Cameron, Clegg and Milliband.?????

Of Course, David Cameron is A Conservative /Tory, Clegg, is on the Fence as always the Liberals, because they would not do a deal after the Last Election with Labour. So came to us the Conservatives with the right reason to work together, to rebuild the Country after the disastrous, Labour Mishandling of the No 10 and 11 Finances, of which they held the reigns......Blair, Brown, Balls-Up, Prescott, Milliband, total waste of space each and every one of them.......
So, come on The Socialist Party, who are trying to undermine this Country, as they tried in the 60's and 70's,, who do you want as the Leader, to fight the next election, in 2015..........which Union Baron, will you and your Votes, put in as the Labour Leader, What Militant Socialist, do you want to further ruin our Country...........Bo
b Crow, Arthur Scargill, Kinnock, , or perhaps a new and up and coming Union Leader, ready to set the workers out on Strike, because you can lead your Gullible Union Members like sheep out through the Factory gates, or as last week bringing London to a halt, casting the Country £ Millions, still good job , Bob Crow, got his Holiday in first, what is his Salary, as a Union Boss, £180k per year plus obviously first class travel and Expenses............
.Talk about leading the Lambs to Slaughter, I' ll be the did'nt sacrifice any salary, last week when he called his Members out, on Strike !!!
Makes me Sick!!!!

Hi again Dave (I hope you dont mind me calling you Dave only you do seem to have warmed to me a little).

I'm always so impressed with your facts and figures - you really are something of a polymath! The way you convey your thoughts on the written page is also something to behold - your charm and wit shines through like a giant beacon. Personally I cannot for the life of me understand why people seem to dislike your input because you are obviously such a level headed, reasonable man. 

Oh well, I'll always be ft here for you if you need a shoulder x

Again the Undercover reporter says Nothing!!! Worth the Post.....
A typical reply, at least, I try to pass my knowledge into the Local Domaine, so as others can benefit. Where as your sarcasm, and cynical attitude, really does go over the top of my head, thank Goodness, or I would have to take your Post seriously, as it is I dismiss them with the Contempt they deserve.

Well said , charity begins at home. And this country and our people at the moment needs all the help it can get. Why give aid to other countries who won't help themselves
