I liked the comment from someone on Twitter: “Will he announce his return as leader in two days’ time?”
One can’t help but notice that, like Boris Johnson, Farage has enticed the UK’s electorate into quitting the European Union and then left us all high and dry.
Like Johnson, he clearly had no intention to do any of the hard work required after the decision.
And he’s still taking our money to pay his salary.
What a faker. He should change his name to ‘Mirage’.
‘I have never been, and I have never wanted to be, a career politician.’
So said Nigel Farage this morning as he resigned as leader of the UKIP. As with everything Farage says, it bears a little scrutiny.
For one thing, he’s been an MEP since 1999, after becoming UKIP party chairman the year before. Seventeen-plus years in post looks a lot like a career to most people.
But there’s more. Farage said he and other Ukippers will stay on as members of the European Parliament until Britain formally leaves the EU, which he says could be around two years.
In other words, he intends to keep picking up the juicy salary of being in a job he doesn’t think should exist, for a party he no longer wants to lead, having essentially given up on full-time politics.
