At last, LBC has ditched the nation's favourite 'populist' from his nightly radio programme. AIBU to say this is very good news?

 Nigel Farage to leave LBC Radio 'with immediate effect' http://news.sky.com/story/nigel-farage-to-leave-lbc-radio-with-immediate-effect-12004872

Oohh, I need to catch up with the news. I love LBC even the presenters I can't stand.

That’s unfortunate. I voted Remain, and I disagree with Farage about almost everything, but even I have to accept that he is the most influential British politician since Thatcher. He represents, and embodies, a significant strand of English public opinion. ‘Cancelling’ him will play into the hands of the hard right, and help them portray themselves as a victimised minority.

Great news! Vile human being.

What has he done? Didn't they get rid of Ken and Katie H as well? They don't seem to tolerate extreme views.

Felifox Thu 11-Jun-20 19:00:16

I can't stand him, and despite his campaigning he's never managed to win a seat in the HOC

ZaZathecat Thu 11-Jun-20 19:06:29

I gather it's his coverage of the black lives matter issues that were the final straw. I believe he likened the people who took down the statue in Bristol to the Taliban.

Thedogscollar Thu 11-Jun-20 19:09:22

Yanbu he is a racist. Likened the Bristol BLM protestors to the Talibanshock

FirTree31 Thu 11-Jun-20 19:09:24

Good. He as PP said, he likened the protesters to The Taliban. He is an outright racist and shouldn't be given air time. He's never had a seat anyway, that I'm aware of.

Finally, LBC What kept you?

Now no more of this Shock Jock crap: Galloway, Livingstone, Hopkins, Farage. No more of this. Grow Up.

PS: Who remembers the great days of LBC, with Brian Hayes, Peter Allen, Bob & Doug, Anna Raeburn and the Naughty Bits, etc.

Excellent news
He really brought the place down

Mumoblue Thu 11-Jun-20 19:13:58

Good. The man is a toad.

JasperRising Thu 11-Jun-20 19:14:05

He is a racist who should not have been giving such mainstream, uncritical platforms for his views over the years.

But like a pp, I do have concerns about how this will be received by his core fan base who will certainly use it as further evidence of his and their persecution at the had of a liberal, lefty media.

MinteeFresh Thu 11-Jun-20 19:15:33

Good. As soon as we get rid of these hateful old bigots from our society the better.

borntobequiet Thu 11-Jun-20 19:18:39

I hadn’t realised the depths of his racism until he referred to Barack Obama as “disgusting”.

Samtsirch Thu 11-Jun-20 19:32:20

Fantastic news.
The mere mention of his name makes my gag reflex go into overdrive.

skippy67 Thu 11-Jun-20 19:42:35

Good.

Thelittleweasel Thu 11-Jun-20 19:51:07

@longwayoff

Oh thank goodness. Now a two year extension to Brexit next and during that time finding that Britain cannot afford it and revoking Article 50.

Oh what a fantasy! Next BJ and Trump ["trump trump trump" from Nellie the elephant"] resign saying that it was all a mistake

ddl1 Thu 11-Jun-20 19:53:26

Oh really? I might go back to listening to LBC now; Farage wasn't doing my blood pressure much good.

ddl1 Thu 11-Jun-20 19:56:07

'‘Cancelling’ him will play into the hands of the hard right, and help them portray themselves as a victimised minority.'

They ALWAYS portray themselves as a victimised minority (the minority part is true), so nothing will change that way!

Gutted sad

I wanted it to happen on his birthday grin
