Nigel Farage has claimed the hostility and disapproval he has been experiencing from the public on newspapers for accurately quoting him and making his avowed political opinions to the nation.
“Any time I say something racist to a journalist or in a press conference they end up writing about how I said something racist” he groaned. “But the thing is, a good 50% of the things I say in my life aren’t even that overtly racist or morally questionable, so it does seem a little unfair they always pick the things that are. No one ever quotes me asking my wife what we’re having for tea or either of those times I talked some actual sense!”
"Try and imagine if someone wrote down everything you say" he told a confused stranger in the street, "How would you like it, knowing everyone 50 years from now would see the mistakes you made? I mean, we all go through a phase of trying to get publicly elected in order to ethnically cleanse the country, right?!"
He says it has caused him “considerable stress and unhappiness” to see truths about himself immortalized in print, wishing at least newspapers had the decency to make something up, like the good old days. “Britain’s news is unrecognisable now” he laments, “it’s not the things they print making me look like an awful bastard that bug me, it’s those thing’s veracity.”
