A home goal surely attacking the Royals?

paddyann Mon 12-Aug-19 10:13:18

Might make him more popular with some .

Minniemoo Mon 12-Aug-19 10:21:01

Good grief. Just seen this. But it was at a 'do' where the media was banned it seems. So someone has recorded and sold. Well, he'll not be getting an invite to the Palace. But judging by his comments he'd not want one.

Not sure that his fans will be impressed. Or will they? I don't actually know anyone who voted for the Brexit Party so don't know how they feel about the Royals.

No idea what he’s said is there a link

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 10:30:30

A link would save the googling.

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 10:31:03

Or at least his full name! Nige who?!

gillybob Mon 12-Aug-19 10:31:21

I have little time for NF but really can’t disagree with much here.

RosieLeah Mon 12-Aug-19 10:32:19

For once, Lessismore, I agree with you. Making fun of anyone is pretty low, but especially the Royal Family.

merlotgran Mon 12-Aug-19 10:33:23


Not sure what his point is really. Sounds like the drunken ramblings of a know all in the pub.

merlotgran Mon 12-Aug-19 10:34:02

X posts, gilly

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 10:35:07

it's Farage

There's a report in today's Guardian. He was also rude about Prince Charles and climate control and the Queen Mum.

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 10:36:04

Oops! Crossed posts with Gilly and merlot.

Don't these newbies know how to do links? hmm

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 10:41:35

Quite a good speech I think. grin

merlotgran Mon 12-Aug-19 10:46:30

A lot of us have said similar things about Prince Harry on here but I think he's wrong to have a pop at Prince Charles who, in his own way, has been warning about climate change for decades.

He speaks very passionately before climbing back into his helicopter to return to one of his homes. grin grin

Anniebach Mon 12-Aug-19 10:46:46

Verbal attacks on someone who has been dead nearly 20 years !

gillybob Mon 12-Aug-19 10:49:50

Oh come on merlot Prince Charles is as big a climate change hypocrite as the rest of them . How many cars does he have? How many flights/ helicopter trips has he taken in the last 10 years? How many homes does he have/keep/heat ?

merlotgran Mon 12-Aug-19 10:53:23

My comment was tongue in cheek, gilly

Anniebach Mon 12-Aug-19 10:54:29

Anyone know if taking an helicopter from A to B is more damaging to climate change than two or more cars from A to B ?

gillybob Mon 12-Aug-19 10:56:36

Sorry merlot I guessed as much after I re-read your post . smile

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 11:01:52

I don't think he was attacking the Queen Qum. He seemed to me to be saying that, although she was a slightly overweight, fag smoking, gin drinker, she had lived for over a hundred years. Sounded more like praise to me.

merlotgran Mon 12-Aug-19 11:02:40

My guess is that the helicopter is more polluting but I could be wrong. Private jets to Balmoral, helicopters here, helicopters there? They just don't like being stuck in traffic like the rest of us do they? hmm

Gonegirl Mon 12-Aug-19 11:02:58

Queen Mum. Not Queen Qum. Although that sounds much more fun.

Nonnie Mon 12-Aug-19 11:11:15

Only read half of it, too awful. I think it is irrelevant whether he had points to make or not, there is no need to be so flipping rude. He says he's not a racist but his pop at the Chinese and Indians seems racist to me. Horrible, arrogant man.

gillybob Mon 12-Aug-19 11:26:37

Where does he “take a pop” at the Chinese and Indians Nonnie ? Surely stating a fact that their combined population is over 2.6 billion ( 2.76 actually) is not “taking a pop” confused its a fact.
