SPECIAL! In-depth interview with new UKIP leader Gerard Batten

If the 2016 U.S. presidential election was an earthquake, the 2016 Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom was a warning tremor. In both cases, victory went to the forgotten people, who didn’t do what they were told by the elites.

Brexit was the result of a decades-long campaign by UK skeptics of the globalist scheme to integrate Great Britain with the European continent. They warned that the European Union's impenetrable bureaucracy would take on a life of its own, and that Britons would no longer be masters of their own house.

And they were right.

Add in the terror of radical Islam, and Angela Merkel’s open-borders experiment, and you had a perfect storm. The man of the hour was Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP, the UK Independence Party. His brilliant videos from his seat in the European Parliament inspired countless Brits to learn why the EU was a bad deal, and to find the courage to break free of it.

UKIP started rising in the polls. The ruling Conservative Party thought they’d take the wind of its sails by pre-emptively calling a referendum on the matter — and to their shock, and that of the fancy people — Brits voted for Brexit, the "British Exit."

Farage left the party, his chief goal now accomplished.

Since then, UKIP has had a series of leaders, none of whom have endured or found success; the party has fallen in the polls and had financial difficulties.

But maybe it has found its feet again, with the leadership of Gerard Batten, a colleague of Farage who has been in the UKIP trenches for more than 20 years, and serves with Farage in the European Parliament as a UKIP MEP.

At first, I didn’t at first pay much attention, until I saw him consorting with our former reporter, Tommy Robinson, in the UK — and publicly standing up for Tommy, after his arrest.

That’s more courage that you normally see in a politician.

So today we bring you a special show — a full length feature interview with Gerard Batten, the new leader of the UKIP Party.

If what that judge got away with was lawful, then the law is an ass in the UK. Rapists go free, parents are ‘talked’ to for their political leanings, apostates are not protected/supported, and most importantly little girls are being defiled, hurt beyond repair, and no one is doing anything about it. How can a just system pick someone off the street for ‘not doing something they might have done’, and then deliver a sentence of thirteen months?? It is as outrageous to me as ignoring Islam poses a problem in western countries. It is disgusting, and I don’t know how any country which conducts itself in such a manner can consider itself to be civilized.

I know Nigel was brilliant with Brexit, but aside from throwing Tommy under the bus he also threw Anne Marie Waters under the bus because of other peoples wrong perceptions. I think its about time the people who continue to use qualifiers at the beginning of any comment about them should stop it, and stand with the Tommy’s and Anne Marie Waters, or is this another example of that class system at work that we hear about in Britain?

All these qualifiers from people on the same side when discussing Tommy, is getting annoying. ’I like Tommy but… ’.
Both Tommy and Anne Marie are on the front lines and they deserve more respect than that.

Gerard Batten is an excellent speaker on the political circuit, not afraid of political correctness, I wish him well. He originally agreed to to serve as leader of the UKIP Party for 12 months, just to save it from bankruptcy and he did a wonderful job. He has now agreed to stay on as leader in a more permanent role. He is not Nigel Farage but is the next best thing.
Nigel Farage is said to be the most popular unelected MP in the history of politics. Everybody must have seen his rant at one of Trumps pre election rally’s, he had standing ovations from the crowd who did not even know who he was. Born in America of English parents, I guess he could run for President, after all, George Washington was in the same position when he was elected.

The best of Nigel Forage, (I hope) .

He comes across like any other politician. There is no way Tommy was in contempt of court Tommy was doing his job. History has a habit of repeating itself and I know we are watching the repeat of history. The Muslims have invaded Europe several times and were driven out. People call for a King Arthur but what they need is a king like King Ferdinand who kicked the Muslims out of Spain in 1492.

“Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.” Pink Floyd, from the song ‘Time’.

I like Gerard. I truly hope he can make a difference in the U.K.
If Canada wants to get rid of Trudeau and all leftists for that matter, it needs to have a population that is not only socially aware of its history but educated enough to know that leftist-socialism does not work, regardless of how many freebies the Libs and NDP promise without having any way to pay for it.
Canada needs to awaken, village by village, town by town, city by city. Contact your friends and ask them not to vote NDP or Liberal and to stop watching the MSM like CBC, CTV, Global, Tor Star, Macleans etc. Convince them to contact their friends and so on. I try to be optimistic in that I hope there are enough Canadian patriots to overturn anything the left tries to concoct politically, regardless of media spin, so when enough Canadians realize that political leftists have only global interests and not Canadian interests at heart, then Canada will change and leftists with their neo-Marxist, anti-democratic, anti-Canadian, Alinsky values will lose, and never again gain political power.
However, that is a hard concept, especially when you have multiple generations of Canadians and British citizens who have been schooled into thinking that leftism is all there is and who are ignorant of the Western concept called freedom of inquiry.
The U.K. needs to do the same thing. If you have a British friend, contact them and ask them to vote UKIP. Person by person, village by village, town by town Britain needs to awaken. If it can awaken, it will change for the better.

One thing I hope is that the UKIP can stir up that fighting spirit in Britans and they’ll take back their land from the elites. The UK is what Canada will be like if we don’t rouse ourselves and fight for our lands.
