My favorite Brit political figure since Thatcher at least, maybe Churchill.

He put this new political party together just like 3-4 weeks ago and they are leading the polls!!!

Yes he is doing well, but he has a single policy and a lot of support.

He retired from politics after the referendum, with the naïve hope that the politicians would actually do what the country told them to do.

WRONG.

Most of the MPs didn't want Brexit and that is why we are in the pickle we are, they could not bring themselves to do what they had been instructed to do. Prevarication, obfuscation and inveiglement have been the MO's of all the major parties.


Nigel's return is a cold wind blowing through the corridors of power, however because of the system, he will never win a majority in Parliament because of the first past the post system and no "president" to vote for in separate elections.


It will be nice to watch the main parties squirm when the results come in.

This is the bitterest pain among men,
To have much knowledge , but no power.
