Tonight (UK time) the radio debate will be held between the UKIP Leader, the Voice of Liberty and Sovereignty in Britain, Nigel Farage and the Deputy Prime Minister, Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg.  (This is on LBC radio at 8 pm British time.)  The BBC debate is set for TV for April 2.)  Here’s a pre-debate take from Farage in the UK Independent:

I have been told by sources that the Lib Dems are briefing that the debate will go beyond the subject of Europe. Well if you define “Europe” as directives and regulations and turgid clauses debated by committees then I can’t imagine that much of the debate will be about that. To suggest that what we will be debating – immigration, the EU, housing, primary school places, the right to trial by jury and our own sovereign defence and foreign policy – does not come under the heading of a debate on our EU membership is disingenuous of the Lib Dems.

Sounds like Farage is ready and the stakes are high – for every Briton:

Even back in 1974 the referendum was about whether we wanted to join the then Common Market and be part of a trading bloc. What Nick Clegg and I will be debating in the first round on LBC is whether we want to be either part of political union or a free, self-governing nation. Because at the heart of this debate is the question of identity: are we “European” or “British”?

This debate ought to be worse that the infamous US-Nigeria Olympic basketball game; let’s hope the British people are listening!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
