Whether you agree with everything he says or not, it is a fascinating look at the EU from the perspective of someone completely against the norm.
There is a great deal of enlightenment in this book which everyone should read.
It is a well-written, lively book, full of the sort of pugnacious language that has helped give Farage his popularity. It is also rather kinder to some of his opponents that you might expect if you had only come across Farage through his headline grabbing strings of insults aimed at others, though when it comes to the EU and its main functionaries he doesn't hold back. He even has some kind words to say for the man who threatened to kill him - and rightly so given the person's mental health had fallen apart.
Nigel Farage writes much about his own personal failings - the drunkenness, failed marriage and more - in a way that mixes skilfully killing future criticism by being frank with a strong view that if you believe in freedom the important thing is that people take responsibility for their own actions rather than that you try to ban people from making mistakes.
Despite being such a good read, at the end of it I was not that much clearer about what really motivates Nigel Farage than at the start. A libertarian streak certainly does come out. That explains some of his politics, much of which however seems to be heavily motivated by a love of being the gadfly, the person with the alternative views poking fun at the establishment and having fun in being different.Read more ›
