Stuck in a conference center again with Nigel Farage’s blues – POLITICO

The National Conservatism Conference – a gathering of Europe’s far-right elite – seemed as fun as an emergency colonoscopy, but it was actually a lot of fun. Local authorities went out of their way not to host the event and (presumably) catering companies across Brussels received last minute orders for numerous appetizers with no spicy ingredients or vegan options (or any other “woke” foods » like soy). milk or bean sprouts).

And when it began on Tuesday, it was almost immediately shut down before the courts stepped in to say it should move forward (a timely reminder that judges can be very helpful rather than, say, puppets of the global left elite).

But for it to be an international television success, you have to add drama. How about facing Viktor Orbán, Nigel Farage, Suella Braverman and Eric Zemmour to escape from a locked conference center and get to the airport/Eurostar terminal as quickly as possible, while avoiding anyone wearing a lanyard with an EU flag? he? (Bonus points if they can avoid Brussels’ famous uneven cobblestones with dirty water underneath).

The only disappointment of the right-wing conference was its failure to choose Liz Truss as its speaker.

Alas, Truss has been too busy promoting her book “Ten Years to Save The West”, which contains some cracking anecdotes about how 10 Downing Street is full of irritating creatures that give you the creeps, which is a horrible thing to say about Boris Johnson and his cabinet (oh, she meant fleas?) and that Queen Elizabeth II advised Truss to “pace himself”, which is an unfortunate choice of words given that the queen died a few days later.

“Ten Years to Save the West” is available in the fiction section of all good (and some bad) bookstores.
