He's worked for 25 years to free our country from the EU, sometimes totally alone.
There are few people outside the military who have done more for Queen and Country than Nigel Farage.

Arise, Sir Nigel.


Farage is just a mouth, a lying one at that, and certainly not a believer in democracy, he's also a lazy sob who hardly went to the EU forum...except to make speeches...and he's still taking his hundred grand, which comes out of everybody's pocket.

You know nothing about him.


Like I said - it would be wonderful for him to recieve a Knighthood.

But hey, thanks for your super insightful deep dive into who Farage is.


I'll put it this way, in the event of the 2016 referendum going against leaving the EU do you think Farage would have accepted the result, in the same way as he asked, 'Remoaners' to man up, and accept BREXIT?

Answer, Yes or No?


I'll answer how I like.
So here it is...
...it's irrelevant. We voted to leave and so we shall.
The undemocratic idea of a second vote is now a distant memory - thankfully.


The mental gymnastics to reach the conclusion that a second vote is undemocratic are staggering.

The campaign against it just shows how afraid of the result the pro leave side is.

It was an election not a referendum.

If It was a referendum leave lost.

It was an election not a referendum.



It was an election which reinforced and reflected the referendum result





If It was a referendum leave lost.


That conclusion is a stretch too far to even be a reasonable assumption

You can't have it both ways.

If It was a vote on Brexit then leave lost.

You're begining to sound like a needle stuck in a groove


Sounds like you've been taking lessons from Jeremy Corbyn on 'analysing failure?

**Merry Christmas**

You lost.
Time for you to get over it.

Not particularly fond of Farage, at times he is downright childish with his antics in the EU Parliament.

However, personal opinions shouldn't actually matter here. We often give Knighthoods to the leaders of political parties - when they leave politics behind (or move to the Lords).

On this basis i would 100% support a knighthood .

Well if leaders of political parties get Knighthoods, why didn't Screaming Lord Sutch get one then?
What did Farage actually do (apart from going to the EU parliament and cause trouble), oh wait, that's all he did?
It makes a complete mockery of the honours system. But then again it's always been a reward the boys and girls system.

He rattled David Cameron enough to promise a referendum?

He rattled the conservative party enough to get the leavers silenced?

He could have split the votes to another hung parliament?

He didn't.......because his only aim was to have the UK leave the EU

And he achieved his aim!! Kudos and respect Sir Nigel Farrage

That is absolutely no reason to give him a knighthood.
He could have split the vote??? Of course, THAT'S why he was bribed with a knighthood. He'll now vanish into the obscurity he came from.

Many get one (a knighthood) for a lot less.

Of course. If you read my reply I say the honours system is false and corrupt.

So no knighthood, or at least not this time.
The rumour was always improbable, if only because the New Year's Honours List is a complex operation which requires a much longer lead time than hopeful supporters were allowing. If he does get an honour, it will be when the dust has died down and Brexit has dropped out of active controversy. Another twelve months, at least.

I was going to say "well-organised" operation, but that's been invalidated by the fiasco of the released addresses.
