“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Nigel Farage, Raising Hell About Liberty and EU-IMF Dictatorship
He's compared a fellow politician to a 'damp rag', had an extra-marital fling - and survived a plane crash.‘When the pilot said to me: “Nigel, this is an emergency”, I knew exactly what that meant. I could see the sweat on his temples and I could see him fighting to keep control. He said to me a couple of weeks afterwards that I had been very calm, but what else was I supposed to do? I reasoned that he didn’t want to die any more than I did, so if I was panicking or making calls on my mobile that would just make the difficult job the pilot had harder.’
THIS IS NOW.
THIS WAS FARAGE ON GREECE AND THE EURO TWO YEARS AGO.
