Nigel Farage blasts BBC for being ‘ridiculous’ and ‘ludicrous’ on Andrew Marr show

Do you still believe that
worrying about global warming is the stupidest thing in
human history? –I believe that if we
decide in this country to tax ourself to the hilt,
to put hundreds of thousands of people out of work
in manufacturing industries, given that we produce
less than 2% of global CO2, that isn’t terribly intelligent. But as I say, here we are
with one of the biggest changes in politics that’s ever occurred
and you’re not even interested? What is wrong with
the BBC? – Do you still want
to roll back gun control and reintroduce handguns
into this country? – This sums it up.
Do you know, I’ve been going around
the country speaking at packed rallies
every night and do you know who’s
not there? The BBC, and from this
line of questioning now I can see why. You’re just not interested,
are you? –Do you still feel uncomfortable
with foreign language with –You are just not
interested – foreign languages being
spoken on trains? – Let’s talk about democracy,
let’s talk about trust, let’s talk about
competence in politics. This is ludicrous. – Do you still feel that people
with HIV shouldn’t be allowed into this country? – Do I think the National Health
Service is there for British people? Yes, I absolutely do. –So you still do? Do you … –This is absolutely ridiculous.
I’ve never in my life seen a more ridiculous
interview than this. You are not prepared to talk
about what is going on in this country today. You’re in denial,
the BBC’s in denial the Tory and labour
parties are in denial. I think you’re all in
for a bigger surprise on Thursday than you
can even imagine. – We have talked about it.
Do you still admire Vladimir Putin? –No. I’ve never admired
Vladimir Putin. I said I wouldn’t like to live
in his country. – You were asked which current
world leader you most admired. You told GQ magazine ‘as an
operator but not as a human being, I would say Putin.’ – Well there you are.
So there you are. So there you are.
Not as a human being –’The way he played the whole
Syria thing brilliantly. The way … –I don’t like him as a
human being. What is your question?
What is the relevance of this? –I’m trying to work out
who you are and where the Brexit party,
which wants to destroy the party system, is going. –You haven’t asked about a single
other member of the Brexit party. You haven’t commented on the fact
we’ve got the most diverse list of candidates of any party
fighting in this election. –From the revolutionary communist
party right through to the right. –Well that’s worth
discussing, isn’t it? How have we managed to
get left and right together? These things are really
interesting to your viewers not trawling back through a
series of quotes from years ago.
