In typical Farage stye it's all oratory and parlour tricks - they have no realistic route to power, so they can promise the earth, doesn't matter what's pragmatically deliverable. "If we got in we'd make it £1 a pint and a free curry at the end of the night in every pub".

Every party has to start somewhere to just dismiss them because they are not the same level as the big 2 is silly.

A press conference laying out policy is not a parlour game its what every party does

take of your snobbish I hate Farage glasses and see the bigger issues around you

Meh, I don't think these are mutually exclusive to be fair. Labour ain't going to delivery 90% of what they're promising either and the Tories sure as **** aren't actually going to implement mandatory national service. Silly baubles to entice silly people.

Richard Tice: We need an employer immigration tax

Richard Tice told a press conference: “Our economy has a deadly, deadly addiction, that’s the hard truth. It’s the drug of cheap overseas labour. And that drug is being pushed on every street corner by the Labour Party and by the Tories.

“They believe that this drug, this addiction, is good for the British economy. Let me tell you it’s not. And what we need is a cure for this addiction, and the cure is an employer immigration tax. That is the cure to this addiction.

“Smart immigration, highly-qualified, highly-skilled, can be a great thing. But there’s a price to it, there’s a cost to it, and at the moment there’s no cost to business for employing cheap, low-skilled overseas labour.

“There’s no cost for trading, there’s no cost for infrastructure, there’s no cost for housing, there’s no cost for health, there’s no cost for transport. And the list goes on. So they’re getting away without paying for overseas labour. That cost is borne by the British taxpayer. And the truth that no other main party will tell you is that is simply unfair.”

Tice: Ordinary Britons sick of identity politics

Richard Tice said “the vast majority of ordinary, decent British workers are sick of pathetic identity politics that is designed purely to suppress debate and discussion”.

“What we want to talk about in Reform UK, and what I want to talk about, is how we get this country growing again, and how we can help young people.”

He called Labour and the Conservatives “two sides of the same socialist coin”.

Farage: This is a bold, innovative policy

Nigel Farage hailed a “bold, innovative policy”, adding: “I can hear the multinationals wailing already because you’re quite right, we have become addicted to cheap foreign labour.”

Mr Farage said legal migration was the “really big elephant in the room” amid an understandable focus on the Channel crisis.

“I really do believe this should be the immigration voters. You ask voters, what are their priorities? The subject of immigration has gone from fifth a few months ago to second or third depending on which pollster you look at.

“So what are the big priorities of the electorate? Well, cost of living clearly is one of them. What greater cost of living is there for the average family, for ordinary folk, in this country than the cost of either renting a property or the cost of buying a property? It is the biggest capital outlay that people face.

“We need to build one new property every two minutes just to accommodate current levels of net migration.”

Farage: We might just surprise everybody

Nigel Farage told the Reform press conference: “We are not as a party, and no party has ever been part of, anti-immigration. We understand that high-skilled migration into Britain can lead to economic benefits.

“But we are totally opposed to what has happened over the course of the last 25 years. We are confident that a clear majority of the British public feel exactly the same way we do on this issue. We are certain that they have never, ever been asked properly at an election that this is what they want.



“And who knows. If people start to understand what Reform UK is all about, and let’s face it, we’re a very new party, [and that] we want to stand up for ordinary British folk, then we might just surprise everybody in the course of the next five weeks.”

Farage: Reform voters are scared to admit their support

Nigel Farage said a “growing number” of young British Muslims were being attracted to extremism.

“I raise that not because I want to see division, that division is being felt I think with the Jewish community in our country already.

“I raise that because I think we ought to have a debate about it. But, you know, of course I get called all the names under the sun for daring to raise the issue. That’s why when pollsters or anybody else ask people whether they support Reform, they’re shy about it. They’re shy of getting abuse.”

I don't think it's untrue that the UK economy has become WOEFULLY (and shamefully) dependent on cheap labour from people coming into the UK to work, often at effectively way below minimum wage ("technically" making full time minimum wage, but in reality working a 60h to 80h week thus earning 50-75% of minimum wage per hour worked).

However the solution to this is in tackling the "gig economy" - not "stopping the boats". The solutions are much more complex but they're boiled down to daft, unreaslistic, unworkable simplicities like physically stopping people.

Stop the ability for people to effectively be working in the UK as indentured servants on £5 an hour. Stop the huge multinational companies that are making this a thing.

Very good presser]

All questions answered fully and with panache

What was weird was that every question from the MSM outlets was made by someone in their 20s - they looked very young to an old sod like me but it seems that in the past the hacks were 40s or so. Must be to do with technology?

I 100% agree but at the same time we have like 10 in our place and it is a bit odd

The latest is called "Turkish style", fully kitted out and constantly empty

and here we thought Farage was no longer going to be much of a active politician, but more of a tv/radio personality with his GBNews

lol
