Nigel Farage vs. Alex Salmond: who came off best in the exchange ?
As we know, Nigel Farage took his UKip bandwagon to Scotland this week to protest from the Scots Nats and others. But as the dust settles, who has come off best from the exchanges ?

Let us get this quite straight please . Farage whose party gained 0.26% of the total vote in the last ( 2012 ) Scottish election ( slightly behind the Monster Raving Loony Party ) came to Edinburgh to tell the Scots what a fine chap he is . Unfortunately his thread bare policies failed the scrutiny challenge . We have an effective devolved parliament ( unlike England which has no Parliment of its own ) yet wee Nigel wants to make the MSPs ( Members of the Scottish Parliament ) redundant and send them to Westminster instead ! Needless to say his views were NOT greatly received and he hit a new low by hanging up on a BBC interview Alex Salmond was suitably dismissive of the somewhat blinkered Farage reaction to his brouhaha with the left wing radical students ( for his information they were diametrically opposed to the " fascist " accusataions delivered by him ) . Big Eck 10 points , Wee Nigel nul points !

Farage speaks his mind and is not intimidated by the E.U dodo birds,Galloway on the other hand is a bigot and a pro-Islamic apologist,every time I think of him saying he believed Mohamed ascended into heaven from the top of a mosque in Jerusalem only demonstrates what a deluded liar he is,any fool knows there was no mosque in Jerusalem at the time of the prophets death as Islam did not really appear until 200 plus years after his death.So my answer is a definite no.

Forget Salmond and the Scots Nats, it was the nation of Scotland who won. Farage says he is the leader of the "United Kingdom Independence Party", when in actual fact he is nothing of the kind. He is the leader of the "Disunited English Independence Party".
If he hates Europe so much, why is he still an MEP scoffing greedily at the pig trough of the European expenses system?

Clearly Alex Salmond. Farage has come across as a petty-minded individual who can't take being criticised or challenged - hanging up on a BBC interview because he didn't like the line of questioning will haunt him for some time.

Well, I'm no supporter of salmond but he definitely came off better. Farage racist. fascist 'English haters' so no doubt he will lose the vote little votes he could have got up here after showing his true colours...

The protesters showed their true colours by shouting " burn the union jack " and by issuing threats against Mr Farage.
How come it's always the unhygienic, unwashed loony left punks and hippies as well as the medieval Muslims who issue threats and behave like hooligans against anyone defending the UK ?
Salmond and his loony left SNP do not allow free NHS treatment for cancer patients unlike the rest of the UK.
Salmond has said the borders will stay open to all comers in an independent Scotland.
How can Scotland be independent when Salmond wants to stay in the EU ?
The left and their supporters are violent thugs akin to Hitlers brownshirts.

Surely Farage is fighting for the UK?
