Nigel Farage really does know better than this. His assertions about the views of democratic socialists in Britain and of young people in particular is deceitful, patronising and really bloody obvious.
He’s using the most extreme arguments he can to demonise socialism whilst painting his beloved capitalism in a way that makes it almost unrecognisable.
The version of capitalism he describes has nothing at all to do with the unregulated, free-market system that he himself clearly longs for. He talks about using income tax to fund public services and yet ‘our Nige’ has gone on record calling for the dismantling of the NHS. He even tried to avoid paying tax himself by hiding his own money in a tax haven until he was found out and had to bring it all back to save face.
Farage’s hypocrisy is never more obvious than when he’s spewing forth such exaggerated lies as he does in this video.
