Even Nigel Farage’s arrogance came through yesterday, in saying he was delighted “to have Boris beside him”, seemingly meaning Boris follows the “acknowledged leader”, Nigel.
N.B. Boris follows no leader but Boris, joins no other master, he joins “Vote leave or whatever it’s called”. That’s all.
Egos really should take a back seat in this thing. Those egos are immensely useful – Boris has great clout and reach and Nigel has the arguments, he’s a consummate headkicking debater.
From each according to his abilities, to quote the enemy. But that’s it. No leaders, no jockeying for pre-eminence, no snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. And for heavens sake, know the material first before pontificating.
Before getting down to preaching.
