In the course of the meeting he expressed some surprising views on Scottish independence and the Irish nationalist demand for home rule.
This is a bizarre statement from the leader of UKIP, especially in the year that marks the centenary of the Ulster Covenant. Our forefathers fought against home rule for Ireland because they would not accept domination by a Dublin parliament. Now Nigel Farage says that Ulster should have been put under the control of a Dublin parliament!
That was what Gladstone proposed in 1886 and that is what Ulster opposed. Now Farage says that Gladstone was right and Ulster was wrong! According to Farage, Thomas Sinclair, Sir Edward Carson, James Craig, Fred Crawford and every other unionist was wrong!
This is of course just the latest in a long series of bizarre statements by Nigel Farage and I am sure it will not be the last.
