Where is this written in the British media?

The encroachment on Britain's sovereignty by the EU warrants no attention in what passes for our media, yet it appears to matter a great deal in America. It is a sorry state of affairs when the deficit in our own media has to be corrected by a member of the media in a foreign country!

Roger Kimball, Pajamas Media, writes about Nigel Farage and a recent speech in the European Parliament. Whilst containing one incorrect statement - that Farage was a Conservative politician prior to 1992, rather than a member of that party - and containing a few 'typos' (but hey, when did Americans ever know how to commit the English language to written form) the article is well worth a read. It is also pleasing to see that he is 'placed' above Daniel Hannan:
"Europe is very, very lucky to have politicians like Nigel Farage. (Daniel Hannan) is another such.)"

H/T: Your Freedom and Ours for drawing my attention to Kimball's article.

And the same thing applies when you have to watch Russia Today, or Fox News to be informed of yet more anti UK protests by Islamic extremists.

Sorry if that's a bit off topic, but the same point applies.

microdave: far from off-topic, it just amplifies my point. Your comments are always on-topic and most welcome!

The people who are going to matter the most in the States in the coming years know the difference between Farage and Hannan (who they will recognise for the sort of establishment stooge he is). I guarantee that in matters of UK independence, it will be Farage who will get the backing. His party are the ones that will get the backing. The future is constitutionaly protected individual liberty, not living for the benefit of a few criminals.
