“I have more respect for Putin than for ‘kids’ who run Britain,” Nigel Farage
Putin is held in more respect by Nigel Farage than “kids who run Britain” The Guardian, a daily newspaper of printed in London and Manchester, reports. Nigel Farage is a leader of one of the leading political parties of the UK, known as UK Independence Party or UKIP.
The UKIP leader Nigel Farage said that Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, is doing a better job on foreign policy than the UK prime minister David Cameron and his foreign secretary, William Hague. “The way he (Putin) played the whole Syria thing. Brilliant,” said Nigel Farage in admiration for his foreign policy skills sometimes back.
The UK deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, was visibly upset about these comments. Some leading politicians in the UK and the EU have been trying fervently to paint Putin black after the recent illegal “color-revolution” patterned coup in Ukraine that was largely funded by the Western countries. Putin has strongly condemned the toppling of democratically elected government in Ukraine by violent means, while sympathising with Maidan protestors in their struggle against corruption.
The coup was followed by a referendum in Ukraine’s Crimean region leading to accession of Crimea to the Russian Federation. The Russian President Vladimir Putin is in the cross hairs of the highly biased Western media since then.
Back in the UK, led by Nigel Farage, UKIP‘s membership continues to rise. As UKIP Director of Communications Patrick O’Flynn said, “UKIP is the biggest story in British politics this year. Our messages and policies are clearly capturing the public imagination.” The party is strongly opposed to Britain’s continuation in European Union, its open door immigration policy, and its wars in foreign lands.
