    Have you heard of spoilers, Quackers? Further, the only thing that seems to have been obliterated (other than the page width) is that YT video, which doesn't seem to exist.

    Farage ??? What kind of surname is this ??? Sounds quite exotic.

    Among immigration records to the USA I found Ahmed Abdallah Farage:



    Could it be... ??? Some distant family? :confused:

    Unfortunately to see more details one needs to pay.

    ===============================

    Also - a certain Naser Ahmed Farage has a facebook account. Also family?

    You people? Who exactly are "you people?" Also, immigration is a topic that people (regardless of political affiliation) should be able to discuss without being accused of "racism" for even bringing it up.

    You're the first person to mention racism in this strand of conversation.

    Nigel Farage's family is of French Huguenot origin (on the male line).

    Absolutely. He couldn't be a more run-of-the-mill working-man if he tried.

    Commodity traders are not bankers. I'm fairly sure, too, he's been a heavy smoker and drinker for years; it seems a particularly reckless and harmful thing to start just to win a few potential votes

    He's Churchill reincarnate, all we need is some anti-Indian slander and a crippling smoking addiction.

    Immigration was only recently (re?) brought up. It is not uncommon for anyone who even mentions the word "immigration" to be called a "racist" in Britain and even in America. It's basically just a buzzword that has lost any real meaning these days.

    It's good to see that members of this forum are capable of critical thinking and don't just throw baseless insults at their opponents instead.

    I don't really think UKIP are a racist party, though they certain do court the racist vote. Xenophobic would be the term I used.

    Oh. I hadn't thought of it that way. But the Irish are a weird sort, y'know. And most of them aren't redheads, so they're harder to identify.
    The East India Company's club? Well, any decent old chap should be able to afford to exploit a few natives somewhere!

    The only reason the British would fund space exploration is so they could kill some unadvanced aliens.
