I don't know, and given how short the clip is I was mindful that it could be (or he could argue that it was) out of context.
Nice that he talks about "tricks" like employing a spouse as secretary - which he did.
The Brexit party is also a limited company, so the directors can pay themselves any salary they like (within reason)
Now of course you can write rules for that to avoid fat salaries but have they done so?
That clip is years old. It’s from a piece where he takes journo on a tour of his overpaid employment in Brussels. He shows he’s extremely proud of doing a terrible job iirc.
No surprise to see Labour down at the bottom
41% of the country don't know if the Brexit Party want Brexit?
Nothing surprises me these days
The Brexit Party probably don't even know what their policies on Brexit are, apart from 'Brexit', so can't blame the public...
Yep - they're releasing their manifesto/policies after the EU elections, which seems kinda topsy turvy.
I'm pretty sure they've said that they'll announce their policies after the election which is some impressive bullshitting.
The Brexit party is just one big long fart in the face of "the establishment".
Does nothing aside from stinking up the place, but it is hilarious for the people who love Farage's farts and think they smell of roses while the rest of us have to hold our noses while our eyes water.
And like a fart, lulz are enough, who needs policies or actual political reform plans?
[except that it is has the potential to do a lot more harm than a fart...]
Traffic data gathered by third parties is pretty unreliable. Not sure what we can conclude from that.
Another party political pamphlet plopped through my door today.
Not a party I've heard of before
There's been a party for animals in the Netherlands for quite some time.
Dunno why as there are the Greens, but variety is only good perhaps?
May definitely going if the vote on the WA legislation fails again. Boris Johnson standing for leader.
Talks between Labour and Conservatives (unsurprisingly) break down.
FFS. I hope the strategically placed milkshake advert was deliberate.
Address in Luton, standing in North West. Opportunist thug.
Spoil him with the Ferrero Rocher.
Surely if you live in the north west you’d want to come out and vote against him. Living in Luton and trying to be elected in the NW is surely his way of saying “there’s a load of racists up here who will respond well to my bullshit”. Pretty offensive really.
Quite amusing (Conservative campaign launch)
This is a good article (for those that haven't seen it on the European Elections thread)
Why on earth is there a separate thread for the European elections?
I hadn't seen this before but it makes the Corbyn position clear (albeit from 2017) and, as he has shown time and again, he's not really a person for changing his mind.
