As Jean-Claude Juncker introduced his new European Commissioners to the European Parliament today, UKIP leader Nigel Farage stood at his front row seat in the chamber and told him “this is a pretty much a bunch of non-entities.” He said “the one from Britain is so obscure, his name Lord Hill should be ‘Lord Who?’ Because you know the British public couldn’t pick the bloke out of a line-up.”
Farage told Juncker: “I don’t think that the European public or commentators understand what the European Commission really is. The Commission is the executive, it is the Government of Europe and it has the sole right to propose legislation.

UKIP today slammed other political parties for voting in favour of yet more EU funding, as they approved the EU's budget for 2015Posted on October 22
UKIP MEP Jonathan Arnott, together with UKIP's colleagues in the Italian Five-Star Movement, tabled a string of amendments to the EU budget to cut the cost to taxpayers.

Cuts to MEPs' salaries, offices and allowances, pensions and European Political Parties were all rejected - as were cuts to the EU's public opinion analysis, European schools, Special Representatives and payments for co-operation with Greenland.
UKIP MEP Jonathan Arnott, who sits on the Budget Committee, said "The Labour Party in particular have shown their true colours by voting down every attempt to save money from the European Union's budget. They have shown they just don't care how much taxpayers' cash is wasted by the failed European Union project. In total almost a billion pounds would have been saved by the UKIP proposals.

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage branded the new EU Commission “a bunch of non-entities.”
“I spoke to MEPs this morning who will be voting on them later and most of them couldn’t even name half of them.”

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has thanked European Commission President Barroso for making it clear that David Cameron is wrong when he says we can restrict free movement and still remain members of the EU adding Cameron “was deceiving the British people and you made it clear”.
Nigel Farage, Leader of UKIP and Co-President of the European of Freedom and Direct Democracy Group (EFDD) in the European Parliament, was back in his front row seat at the parliament after his eurosceptic EFDD group defeated attempts by the eurofanatic leadership of the parliament to disband them and take away their speaking rights.
The victory of the group meant that the German Socialist President of the Parliament, Martin Schulz, who last week was accused by Nigel Farage of “manipulative backroom politics of the worst kind,” was forced to introduce “EFDD Mr Farage” to address the parliament. Farage rose to reply to a speech by outgoing President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso and you can watch the speech here:Continue reading...
