    It's hard for Farage to imagine people more famous than him that have done less damage. For him more famous is more wrecking powers.

    I despair for this country with 'leaders' like him, Corbyn and Bojo - doomed we are.

    I suppose we could always go back to having wonderful leaders and politician's like Cameron, Brown, and of course even better, Mr Blair himself ^_^

    But to what aim?
    No Monarchy after the Queen (I don't disagree with this per-se) but there's no need to be publicly insulting, gross zenophobia (despite his foreign wife) inaction on the environment, chief Trump sucker-upper and clearly relishing the rapid creation small independent nation with rapidly diminishing world influence.
    Apart from his own ego, why?
    Is nobody able to mount a significant public defence against Farage? After-all, his messages are not difficult to counter or disprove.

    Disproved they have, and at length, for many years, but as the old saw goes, you cannot reason someone out of an opinion which they didn't reason themselves into.

    I wonder why?

    Seriously? It takes about 30 seconds of searching to discover that Farage is generally talking utter nonsense.
