BBC News - Eurosceptic MEP Farage in eye of storm
Nigel Farage, the leader of the UKIP group in the European Parliament, had said he did not want to be rude to the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy.
British EU MPs just seem to go lower and lower. It is truly sad that the one member which sacrificed the most for the vision of a democratic peaceful Europe continues to be the most pathetic member of the Council as it runs. Farage's comments show the low grade of human going in for this UKIP stuff, and the fact it was delivered with a clear educated English accent just brings more shame on the UK. Bullying may be the order of the day in UK politics, but they don't go over the channel very well.
