On leaving school in 1982, he decided not to go to university, but to work in the City trading commodities.Initially, he joined the American commodity brokerage firm Drexel Burnham Lambert,transferring to Credit Lyonnais Rouse in 1986. He joined Refco in 1994, and Natexis Metals in 2003.
But if you information is more accurate then that would fit well with the transition into politics.
Agree. Clegg has no credibility. Any bloke who continually waves his hands/arms around like he does is bound to be dodgy. Nigel is the sort of bloke you could have a pint with while putting the world to rights. Be interested to see if he gets to be an MP and - like so many - forgets why he was sent there. He certainly roughs up the Brussels lot. The significant point is that Farage (fruitcake etc etc) is now taken seriously enough to get prime TV time with the Deputy PM. Cameron should be worried; God knows what Wallace of Gromit fame thinks!
The Tories were worried enough about UKIP well before these debates. There is a swing to the right, far right, across much of the EZ.The centre-right and far right victories in France have very little to do with Hollande being a twig.
The point was about the EU, and whether we should be in it or not. I still think the UKIP story has a long way to run, especially if things really hit the fan in the future. Looking forward to the EU elections, changes are afoot.
The Tories have most to worry about with regards to UKIP because at the General Election next year UKIP will likely split the Tory vote and especially in marginal seats of which there are a lot. The net result will be that Labour will have a good chance of winning the election quite easily. This will not be because more people are voting for them but that slitting the Tory vote will mean neither UKIP nor Tory will have enough votes to defeat Labour.
