    Fortunately I happen to know that Nigel believes in equal opportunities and is not in the slightest degree ageist. So, we both could be in with a chance.

      Well, it looks like he had a raw egg to fortify his extra curricular activities today

        How does that work ? Would Nigel eat it or, plaster it on his privates ?

          I think most of it ended up on his suit. He met a less than enthusiastic voter in Stoke

            Nigel is obviously much like myself - grateful for small mercies !

              I thought that that was rather entertaining. Piers was less that his usual oleaginous style and for a brief period quite aggressive, to which Nigel responded with some passion, which in a public debate is sometimes not what one wants. Last nights ITV interview/debate with Piers Morgan with the charismatic Nigel Farage was well handled by Nigel who epitomised the professional that most of us acknowledge he is.

              I feel surprise tinged with depression that none of his numerous admirers on this forum have yet thought fit to record their pleasure at seeing and hearing the most influential politician of the 21st century so far, dealing with the indisputably clever and devious Piers Morgan.

                    I didn't see the Morgan interview.

                      Thinking about matters, irrespective of whispers about knighthoods, peerages etc. Nigel is in a pretty good situation at the moment. The Blessed May has to keep the Brexit train on track and moving in the right direction, to avoid annoying Nigel who might - if he detects some slowing of progress - then be tempted to ask his best friend in the White House to make some publicised, slightly unappreciative comments, about his hand holding buddy, Mrs May.

                      Wobbles all round. This could be slightly counter productive, in that it might offer some encouragement to the EU dinosaurs eager for British blood.

                      It suggests to me, that all in all, Nigel is holding some excellent cards. Should Mrs. May come under pressure and be tempted to a Brexit wobble, for example on a time table, Nigel's wagging finger should put things back on track. I surmise that she will be very conscious of his presence.

                        No, he is still an irrelevance. May has quite cleverly managed to marginalise him, and UKIP, and that awful freeloading dinner he had last week with the Trump was a real embarrassment

                        As far as him commenting on Farage, I also note that Donald is delaying his state visit to the UK 'to avoid embarrassment' so it is most unlikely the Trump would wish to do any such thing.

                        In my opinion of course

                          Irrelevance ? That surprises me. Call him many things and I can quite understand a measure of distaste but, an irrelevance - never !

                              John, sadly for Nigel, the saintly Theresa, with all due respect to Nigel, doesn't give a monkeys about him!

                              As for his effect on the electorate he couldn't even get elected in "safe" brexit seats like Thanet in seven attempts so she may not be too concerned what he says.

                              She's probably more worried about the backstabbers in her own party! In the unlikely event of a Tory night of the long knives she could be out of number 10 and kicked out on the street overnight like poor Maggie was! *wipes tear from eye"

                                  For my sins I ended up listening to Farage's show on LBC, coming live from... errrr... Washington. Talk show radio seems to be the perfect habitat for him. He's clearly trying to make a name for himself in the US now, which reinforces my opinion that he's really only interested in himself. Those good people of Thanet and the like who put their faith in him because he wasn't a career politician should perhaps reflect on this. While Farage claims the Brexit vote as a personal accomplishment, he's leaving the heavy lifting up to others and letting UKIP quietly implode.

                                    Even now, you're going to repeat the same mistake that people who are wiser than you or I have been making for years. I wonder how many people have laughed at him during his career when he suggested that Britain would leave the EU? This man has been continuously underestimated, and look at the result.

                                    While mass immigration continues, and remains one of the major concerns for the electorate, it would be foolish to write him off.

                                      I would suggest the correct line should be
                                      "While mass immigration continues, and remains one of the major concerns for a proportion of the electorate"

                                      A significant proportion, but not the entire electorate.

                                      As an elected politician who rarely attends the parliament he was elected to but undoubtedly still takes the money, he should not be listened to as a 'voice' of the people. As has been said above, it is now all about him.

                                      In my opinion

                                        Yes, I'd be happy to do so. I can understand that his detractors would be enthused at the prospect of demeaning his standing by making snide observations re his 'light entertainment' value or any other slight that they could invent to rachet up their total on the point scoring scale.

                                        The fact remains that there are few - very few - who could even come close to matching his achievements. I make two points, both interrelated. He, as the single figurehead of a nascent political party, took on the over mighty, over bearing, mightily well funded EU monolith and did solitary political battle, the ultimately declared intention of which was to remove GB from membership of the EU.

                                        His vehicle was a wobbly, political structure that could, with some difficulty, especially in its early days, be described as a political party - UKIP. Difficulty that is, until a General Election showed UKIP polling almost 4 million votes which translated into a hefty shove to the posterior of one, David Cameron, resulting in a referendum to stay in or to leave the EU. The presence of UKIP could not be ignored, the rest as they say, is history, Nigel had triumphed.

                                        The achievement of one man Nigel Farage in bringing this about is truly colossal. That is one instance of why he is far from an 'irrelevance'. Complementing this as I pointed out in an earlier comment, is his friendship with Donald Trump. If his friendship with the President is as deep as the Press report, then this gives Nigel unrivalled influence and access to the President, which knowledge will sit uncomfortably with The Blessed Theresa of the May who knows that her Brexit actions are under scrutiny and if they do not follow an acceptable path might just impel Nigel to ask the President to exert a little pressure.

                                        If Paddy O'Bama can threaten GB with the 'back of the queue' then Mr. Trump, at the behest of Nigel, and in his own inimitable way can do the same should the need arise. I've lived thru' many General elections, seen many politicians of all persuasions come and go, never have I seen any that possessed the demonstrable moral courage and fixation of purpose shown by Nigel Farage in pursuit of his aim.

                                        I will personally never forget the video images of a solitary Nigel Farage facing the massed ranks of the sneering elites in Brussels. That image reinforces his relevance. It shows just what the determination of one person can accomplish. It is a lesson for any aspiring politician.

                                        Let me add that even if I did not share Mr. Farage's political goal I would still write as I have written - with admiration and respect for his dedicated vision. He is a truly remarkable man.

                                          I think you have outlined in what way he used to be relevant and then rather warped the embarrassing appearances at Trump's heels, but I can't see you have made any case for him having any relevance today.

                                          This is the embarrassing moment Nigel Farage gives a speech in front of hundreds of empty seats at a high-profile Republican Party event.

                                          Just 40 minutes before the Euro MP stepped on to the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) more than 1,400 delegates had provided a rock concert-like atmosphere as Governors Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal delivered rousing right-wing speeches.

                                          But as Farage took to the platform at the Gaylord Conference Centre in Maryland he was greeted by more than a thousand empty seats as America’s Republicans choose to enjoy the canaps rather than stomach the Ukip leader’s speech.


                                          Before his arrival his team had expected “a celebrity style reception” with one organiser calling him CPAC’s “rock star”.

                                          But his 20-minute slot hardly drew applause as he talked about immigration while critiquing the policies of his Republican hosts.

                                          Earlier in the day he was overheard joking with his team about the need to avoid any controversy while in America.“ We must make sure we appeal to the homosexual community too,” he mocked.

                                          But hours later, wedged between former vice presidential hopeful Palin and America’s notorious gun lobbyists, Farage greeted those that had stayed saying: “I’m here today as the leader of an insurgent political force in the United Kingdom.
