Mr Farage is good at what he does.
But that doesn't make what he does good.

It might be justified to suspend Godwin's Law if they're really going to take cues from the National Socialist playbook. I was nevertheless quite impressed to hear pro-leave broadcaster Iain Dale starkly tell the Brexit Party leader that his behaviour had brought shame on this country, during their 7pm junction last night.

They are those who believe in Brexit and then there is bl**dy Farage and his hand picked patsies. A bit like the those who support a football club and go to enjoy the game and those who support the club but hope for a punch up after watching the game.
Mr Farage is good at what he does.
Yes twisting the truth and making shed loads of money.

I don't like the EU. But Nigel Farage has been an MEP since 1999 and has in the past employed his wife and children as assistants, so he must have made a fortune from the parliament! I think they should not take their seats - especially this latest celebrity Brexit group. The original UKIP leader Alan Sked said UKIP should not take their seats in the European Parliament.

Perhaps they're aiming for new lows every day?

In her heydays it was suggested that Anne Widecombe would be a good Prime Minister.

Yes, this is astounding on so many levels. Obvious distasteful subject matter aside, she seems to have forgotten that EU regulations are passed through the EU Parliament (in which she sits and therefore gets to vote), the Commission (where our government cabinet members get to vote) and the Council (where our President gets to vote). She is therefore railing at ourselves as our own cruel taskmasters and perhaps should punch herself in the face in order to free herself.

Like all the job losses as a result of Brexit?

Like the millions of public money spent on preparations for March no deal and now for an October no deal.

Like the millions that business has spent on preparations for March no deal and now for an October no deal.

Like the damage to the City that's already taken place (like it or not, it's our biggest industry sector, 650 times bigger than fishing)

etc
