This review is from: Flying Free (Paperback)
I recently went along to a UKIP public-meeting featuring Nigel Farage as guest speaker. I arrived not knowing fully what to expect; I left truly inspired by the man's enthusiasm, honesty, and patriotism, and also a signed copy of this book, which I devoured with relish in a couple of days.
A politician who has also lived and worked in the 'real world' outside of politics, gives an honest account of his early life, what got him into his current role fighting the undemocratic EU, and where he wants to take UKIP and the UK in the future. Inspiring - a rare ability amongst today's clone-like career politicians.

Ummm Farage spends his time telling everyone that he is not a career politician but he has been elected for the last 18 years, and he was an active member of the Conservative Party before that. Eighteen years is a considerable part of my life and also of his. So he cannot claim to be the outsider. He is as much of the political class as any other politician.

Reading this review reminded me of letters written by Germans in 1920s Munich expressing their enthusiasm at having seen and heard Adolf Hitler's "inspiring honesty and patriotism". Farage is a smug, pompous xenophobe

So any politician that has honesty and patriotism has to be linked with Adolf Hitler and called a Xenophobe? What a ridiculous and childish accusation!
May I be so bold as to suggest that it is YOU sir that is out of touch, and are part of the problem of Britain's mess - not the solution.

A career politician is one who has studied politics at school and university, gone on to work in political research departments and slowly climbed the greasy pole to become a MP, and not ever had a job in 'the real world'
Farage did none of this - he was founder member of UKIP in 1993 at the age of 28 on a matter of principle. How many politicians from other parties even know what the word 'principle' means, let alone applying it?
