    I believe you're very very wrong about that. He has spent almost a lifetime campaigning against the EU and this is what he will continue doing. In between, he will blame the UK government for the fact that they haven't gotten the deal from Brussels that only ever existed in NF's head.
    Say what you will about Farage, but he's a good speaker and a great demagogue.

    That is true but it was fun watching him get the largest party in the EU from the UK and watching them scrambling around like lunatics trying to stop him getting a spot in Westminster.Probably just my sense of humour.

    I am a oh sod it, the conservatives are the best of a bad job sort of voter.But I can't see myself voting for the party of Anna Sourby and Nick Boles. Or one that has Dozy Doris in charge. So if they put up a candidate I will tick the box for the Brexit party and the Dandruff Kid.

    I dare not say what I like about Farage, I would get barred. But he will have to replace the income and expenses he got from being an MEP.

    Why would he have to replace it ? He will get a decent pension off the EU after we leave , what do you think the 39 billion was for ?
