Sicilian Diary

Most of my dealings with the mafia — to the best of my knowledge — have been pleasant ones. Visiting Sicily three years ago, we stayed at a delightful hotel high on the slopes of Taormina, with a stunning view of Mount Etna. Learning that we were leaving his two star penzione to head off to the untamed wild lands to the south, the owner of the hotel pulled me aside, surreptitiously slipped me a piece of paper with a mobile number on it, and said ‘You ...

Ukip has formed a new grouping in the European Parliament, including an MEP elected as a member of France's far-right Front National – which Nigel Farage insisted would never happen.

MEPs from seven countries, the minimum needed to be recognised, have joined the group, which is dominated by Farage's party and the Italian Five Sta ...

Source: Big Government

Despite determined tactics by the British Conservatives to stop it, the Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group, the caucus in the European Parliament that has been the platform in Brussels and Strasbourg for Nigel Farage and the UK Independence Party (UKIP), has now signed up enough members to allow the EFD to continue into the new parliament. This will allow MEPs in the group to sit on committees, have increased speaking time in de ...

Britain's UK Independence Party (UKIP) may have dodged a bullet fired by the Conservatives straight at Nigel Farage.

The European elections are over but the negotiations in Brussels continue as newly elected MEPs jostle for positions in the pan-European groupings. UKIP might have bagged the most votes in the UK but out in Europe they're finding themselves rather alone. Since 2009, Nigel Farage MEP has co-chaired the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group (EFD) of which UKIP formed the largest component alongside Italy's Leg ...

Despite a resounding victory in the UK, Nigel Farage's Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group in the European Parliament risks isolation and even extinction without the support of Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement, after a wave of defections hit the political grouping led by the UK Independence Party (UKIP). The Five Star Movement, who the European Greens rejected as potential partners, has 17 MEPs it could bring to the EFD, which was hit Wednesday (4 June) by defectio ...

Conservative MEPs have succeeded in poaching enough of Nigel Farage’s old Continental allies at the European Parliament to be able to brag that they are going to belong to a bigger group in the assembly than UKIP. But other than revenge for their humiliation on election night, what does that gain for British Conservatives? Very little.
