Does nobody else think it is interesting that Nigel Farage, who has appeared on the BBC’s Question Time almost as often as David Dimbleby (it seems), should miss the show in the week a UKIP party political broadcast was roundly condemned?
Farage reckoned he was stuck in traffic – and maybe he was, but it seems odd that he should miss last night’s show when he had always managed to be on time in the past.
It would have been a great opportunity for him, what with David Cameron on the ropes over his hopeless ‘renegotiation’ of the UK’s EU membership conditions.
But, if his party political broadcast is any indicator, Farage doesn’t want to talk about the issues at all.
It seems he would rather attack other countries for their ethnic characteristics.
Nigel Farage’s plans to take David Cameron to task over his proposals for EU reform were last night thwarted as traffic problems prevented him from taking part in BBC show Question Time.
The Ukip leader was held up by traffic on the A1 as he tried to make his way to the show from Bradford, leaving his deputy Paul Nuttall to take his place.
Mr Farage tweeted: “Now been at a standstill for 90 mins on the A1. #bbcqt doubtful. Damn.”
Shortly before the BBC Question Time Twitter account announced: “We were making plans for @nigel_farage – but travel problems mean he’ll be replaced by @paulnuttalukip. #bbcqt”
