|Summary:||Farage: 2016 Year of 'Political Revolution'|
|Date:||11/30/2016 06:16 PM|
Nigel Farage, the former leader of Britain's anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP), said on Wednesday that 2016 had been the "year of the outsider", that newsrooms needed to be more representative, and that the internet could be "very dangerous" in the wrong hands.
He also singled out Sweden's failure to debate controversial topics such as immigration, and had an angry exchange with a German journalist, saying journalists needed to "try a bit of listening".
Farage's comments came in a keynote speech delivered at News Xchange, a major annual news industry gathering, which is taking place this year in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Copenhagen – 30 November 2016
1. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, Former leader of the UK Independence Party:
"You can shout at me, you can get upset, but cheer up everybody. It has been the most fantastic, uplifting, amazing year. There has been the outbreak of nation-state democracy. It's a virulent disease and it's going to sweep the entire western world, in my opinion."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, Former leader of the UK Independence Party:
"2016 has been the year of the political revolution, it has been the year of the outsiders, but remember that what made Brexit happen and what got (US President-elect Donald) Trump elected were a lot of little people who don't normally vote at all, but have simply had enough and want to vote for change."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, Former leader of the UK Independence Party:
"So nobody has made better use of social media and the internet than me, and of course Trump has done exactly the same thing. So I think the internet can be very liberating, I think the internet means that governments simply can't lie to us anymore in the way that they used to, but the internet equally can be a very bad thing and a very dangerous thing, and through the internet alone, if people's trust goes away from you guys and goes completely to the internet, there is a genuine and real danger that perhaps very dangerous or bad ideas will take hold."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, Former leader of the UK Independence Party:
"I think that the broadcasters and media in the wake of 2016 need to press the reset button. I never thought I'd say this, but I think you have got to be more responsible and you have got to be more representative."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, Former leader of the UK Independence Party:
"I have to say that, on Trump, it wasn't just you that was wrong, everybody was wrong, but I had a very good bet at 5-1 and I've enjoyed 2016, even if you haven't."
