This is typical of the problems stemming from Farage’s move:
One commenter on the Alexandra Phillips article:
Nigel Farage’s move is unprincipled because he has not just given way to, but decided to support, another political party and Brexit agreement which he profoundly disagreed with only a day earlier, without consulting members of his own party, nor his party’s candidates.
Now look at this one quite carefully:
There seem only two possible explanations:
1. With eyes on the gong and his status as a British statesman in perpetuity, NF took his eyes off the ball or
2. This was intended all along and NF was always a plant.
Either way, this is most unimpressive.
