    Maybe Populists dont need policies Bob.
    Just say the popular thing.
    A few dogwhistles,
    Some key words.
    Say we are going to make things better by convincing people that it is broken in the first place, and some fingers to point at the source of the blame.
    And a dollop of good ol' 'us against them'.
    Come aboard, 'thousands and thousands are, of course they are' ..

    Tony Benn said it years ago when he was part of the Wilson government in the 60's. When they (labour) got into power they made these speeches about how they would re-distribute wealth and the bankers summoned them to a meeting where they told the labour leadership in no uncertain terms to cut it out or they would cripple the country with a stroke of an accountants pen. Benn said that day he learned who really ran the country, and it wasn't the politicians.

    No Colonel. The most shocking thing about Farage is that he is a facist. Scary

    Much as I dislike Farage, is that old pic above verified as definitely him?

    The oily twat was in Merthyr today with the equally obnoxious Nathan Gill holding onto his coat tails.

    About a dozen or so people turned up to his ‘rally’, half of those were the media.

    Given that Wales is a net beneficiary of the EU, he couldn’t give an answer to the simple question of what Brexit will do for places like Merthyr.

    Expanding a bit. Nigel Farage might be a buffoon but he can take a pulse. He should be taken more seriously by the opposition. Obviously he chooses where to make his stand. He plants his flag. He stands for something in peoples eyes. He has a branding that the mainstream could only dream of. The big parties have learned nothing from him.

    They still sneer at him.

    I'd go as far as to say they may even sneer at folks that are minded to vote for him. If they don't they do a pretty good job of making them feel like they do.

    He's blessed in as much that he will never have any power really so he can play a role. Bigger parties could learn from him though.

    People want a definite view point. Something they can get behind. Not the drivel served up by the main 2. Chopping and changing depending on what they think will fly. What they think they can get away with. It's obviously harder when you have to make policies work. This lot though are just holding on for dear life.

    Labour and Conservative.

    They will be flushed away next Thursday. It ultimately won't mean a thing however.

    Farage only cares about one thing. Himself.

    I can't imagine that Merthyr is a hotbed for immigration and it's had plenty of EU funding directed it's way.

    I'll never understand why Welsh people would choose to be led by the English public school elite. ESPECIALLY after the way in which that area has been shat on by English Tory governments for generations

    I believe there’s quite a lot of East Eurpeans living and working in the Merthyr area,especially in the meat packing plant.

    Lots of Eastern Europeans in Merthyr, some of them are fitter than the locals and my policy on women is all-inclusive.

    Some see this in a sexual context such as sadomasochism.

    Having had a long spell of sleeping last night I might make it to the dawn's early light.
