Vanessa is there any way his speech may be viewed anywhere.
I would like to hear his speech
And also possibly the other parties' speeches.
Yes, we recorded the whole speech, but have not edited it yet. I will post the link here when it is available.It was a UKIP event only, so no other politicians present.We will endeavour to attend other party's events in the hope of getting other politicians POV on the housing market.Thanks for commenting.
Hey nice coup V. Well done!
Politics aside, he has always i found to be a plain speaking man and I hope he throws his weight behind the issues you raised of direct payments to landlord especially when UC comes in. Also he indicated broad support for the freeing up from the danger of constrictive BTL legislation which as he said would make progress more difficult for the investor.
This interview is an excellent marker put down for PT in the political arena and best of luck with obtaining the considered views from the other parties` spokespersons.
well said Jon .
I love this guy!! I would vote for him tomorrow to lead this country.....he has guts and unlike most other EUMP's he is only doing it to expose the utter corruption and waste that goes on in Brussels....i think he went a bit far with the Belgium being a 'non country' but most of the time he talks the truth and a lot of sense....he is pro business, anti waste, pro profit, pro lower taxation and has integrity...Well Done Vanessa that's a great success for PT.
It really worries me at the moment that it almost feels embarrassing or wrong to stand up and say you support 'capitalism' it seems to have been somehow got tainted that you're a cold, non caring, bastard who only cares about corporate profit....Its a complete misconception that capitalism exploits the poor and money is the 'root to all evil'. In my book 'money is the root to feeding people'
Im a pro capitalist whereby every one is FREE to choose their destiny, if you aspire to work hard, innovate, take risk and believe in yourself you have the opportunity in a wealthy society to spread good. You cant do that in a vast amount of countries around the world, who have foolishly shunned an open democratic capitalist system. Thank god we haven't here...For most of us we only get successful if we provide a service that helps other people....so where is the wrong in that! .........Mankind continues to evolve, innovate and create.....look how the standard of living has changed for everyone over the last 100 years! You only get that in a competitive society where people are incentivised and rewarded to serve others and be the best they can possibly be i.e a bad landlord providing filthy accommodation will fail compared to a landlord that works hard and invests in providing excellent clean accommodation. Market demand dictate success and reward.
Because im a Capitalist does not mean i am owning up to be inhuman, in fact its the opposite because im a capitalist i passionately believe in people, i believe in welfare to protect and care for the old, sick, vulnerable in our society, it seems to me a successful wealthy country does this far better than a poor one!
Now the squeeze is on there seems to be a growing wave of bitterness and jealousy of 'if i aint got then i dont want anyone else to have it' mentailty going around.....and in my view negativity is never a good basis for an argument. I seem to recall that negative mob mentailty caused a bit of stir in Germany '39!
....Yes Capitalism is far from perfect it does not have all the answers, but i am sure as we continue to evolve we will continue to improve it as long as it continues to focus on innovation and reward and improving as many peoples lives as possible. It is the best system i know of where everyone has the opportunity to serve one another and afford people 'hope'
I have just come back from Spain where i own a property, and i have been utterly shocked this week meeting some of my local Spanish friends who are struggling to eat! these people have'nt got a 'pot to piss in' . No one can afford to do any business with anyone else. I am afraid that unless this entrenched socialist mentality changes in Spain the the very poor they aim to elevate from poverty is unlikley to change.
Its Ironic that most of the Anti Capitalist hooligans defacing our war memorials in protest many of them are privately educated graduates who have absolutely no experience of what it must be to live in a country with no welfare and struggling to earn enough to eat! In these places 'your on your own mate'! After what i have seen this week, again THANK GOD i live in the UK with strong capitalist roots because i don't ever want to have to live one day worrying about eating....perhaps the next time these fools protest they should spend a month living in poverty and think twice about this great country that feeds them and takes care of them.
Come on UK lets stop ourselves falling into this dangerous negative envious Euro Social politics trap, lets stop this negative witch hunting of wealth and success, lets stop being afraid to say we believe in capitalism, lets stop supporting 50% income tax and Death Duty (theft tax)....as this ultimately this only hurts all of us.... lets celebrate success, let those who create wealth keep it, because the more people succeed then the more we will all benefit....
Vote Nigel Farage! haha rant over.....
Rant away Tim! :)The following line sent chills down my spine on Friday night. Nigel said:"The "climate change" taxes are the biggest transference of wealth from the poor to the super rich in living memory".He claims that the C02 threat is non-existent and that the European super-elite are just using it to frighten the poor and get more money off them in taxes.It really opened my eyes as to how the masses are manipulated. We are nothing but little worker bees renting our lives out to line the pockets of the super rich in Europe.We are fed a diet of "Big Brother" and "EastEnders" to rot our brains and distract us from what is REALLY going on in the world. As Nigel said, "It's time to WAKE UP!".I was pleased that there was about 100 people there on a Friday night and there were many people who said how sad they were that the U.K. was being destroyed by the EU and all the taxes and aid we have to give the rest of the world, when we can barely cope with our own problems and peoples.I think of all the doctors and nurses and policemen who do such AMAZING work and put their lives at risk every day, and they are treated like Sh*t. Whereas someone like Katie Price is lauded and described as a role model. It makes me sick ... I admire Nigel for having the courage to speak up against all of this. He is pretty much a lone voice but he really cares about this country, of that I have no doubt.
Great - I love it, even Toby's Capitalist rant!
I noted a brief shot in the video of Nigel doing book signings, then looked it up on Amazon. I'm not normally into politics, but I could be..! It's called Flying Free. I see that it's his second book, his first being Fighting Bull which also looks good, so I may get both.
I love this description on Amazon:
"I did not enter politics out of philanthropy but rather as an extension of my own annoyance and resentment at having inherited freedoms infringed by power-crazed idiots spouting gibberish. It gives me particular pleasure, then, to know that we have empowered many others and caused them too to doubt the authority whereby such people presume to grant us rights where we can manage perfectly well with innate freedoms. In an age of colourless bureaucrats, Nigel Farage is a politician you are unable to ignore, provoking controversy and admiration in equal measure. What cannot be denied is the effect he has had on British and European politics. A fun-loving iconoclast..."
An iconoclast hey - a new word on me! You learn something new every day on PT.
Well done Vanessa for getting the interview:-)
It's a great shame that because of his outspokeness he could never join a mainstream party as he could do a lot of good, sadly with UKIP he'll never have the chance to sit in cabinet.
Great Job getting an interview with Nigel Venessa, I love this guy.
I have been brought in a hard working, working class background. My father is a builder and my mother is a cleaner and both are (in my opinion) working past their retirement age. Both have worked themselves into poor health and are unable to afford to retire.
To this day they are proud to have lived this way and have slept easier at night never having taking risks or reaching for their dreams but always earning an honest living. They brought me up on the notion that the rich get richer whilst the poor get poorer as Toby mentioned in his epic rant which had me captivated.
Looking at my parents now, as proud as I am of them I can't help but pity how they have lived their lives in fear of wanting more and taking a few risks to achieving better lives for themselves.
I'm happy to say that at 26 years old, my eyes are well and truly open and have been for 2 years now since I left the rat race to claim my stake in life. My love for property and business has started me on an amazing journey of discovery.
For those who haven't already seen it, I suggest you watch a documentary called Zeitgeist and Zeitgeist Addendum. A great watch for lovers of conspiracy theories and for those who believe that there is something going on behind the scenes to keep people in the rat race.
Venessa's point "It really opened my eyes as to how the masses are manipulated. We are nothing but little worker bees renting our lives out to line the pockets of the super rich in Europe..."
Watch both films to be shocked and enlightened. They're a bit out there and some parts have been debunked but most parts are really interested.
