After reading the news that Nigel is about to throw (or hurl) his hat into the ring yet again, I just hope that he chooses his cohorts more wisely this time.
He's the only one who can sort the wheat from the chaff as far as Brexiteers go and I for one, hope that he helps us to weigh anchor and see off all comers.
What say you?

Are you talking about the same Nigel who was the UK's representative on the EU Fishing Committee and only attended 1 meeting out of 42?

Farage is like one of those singers that keeps making just one more Farewell Tour. Is this his third or his fourth?

Have you swallowed a dictionary of cliqués and proverbs then GG?

lemongrove Sun 20-Jan-19 19:32:58

What ring is Nigel throwing his hat into GG ?

Only good thing about leaving the EU will be this little toad losing his seat on the gravy train.

He may well weigh his own anchor & store up wheat for himself , leaving others to pick up the Chaff !

I say mixed metaphors are very confusing!

What happened to his job with Trump? I thought he'd be over there, digging foundations and laying bricks.

GabriellaG54 Sun 20-Jan-19 20:19:18

Behind Brexit.
I read that he's starting up a new party to free us from the claws of the EU. hmm

GabriellaG54 Sun 20-Jan-19 20:22:18

Do you have a problem understanding my OP?
I can, if you wish, couch it in words of one syllable.
Don't be shy. Just ask. wink

GabriellaG54 Sun 20-Jan-19 20:24:23

It might be his final Farewell Tour. grin

M0nica Sun 20-Jan-19 20:54:12

No, he will be back. He cannot live with out the oxygen of constant publicity

sassenach512 Sun 20-Jan-19 21:10:28

Sorry but I look at this twerp and think dodgy second-hand car dealer. Where was he when UKIP started to implode? oh yes, in the US licking Trump's boots

GabriellaG54 Sun 20-Jan-19 21:21:21

I agree with a lot of what is said about him but, sometimes people we don't necessarily 'like', indeed we may loathe, have the ability to do things of which we approve.

merlotgran Sun 20-Jan-19 21:26:46

I don't like the man but have to admit that during the Brexit campaign he was good at putting his point across whether or not you agreed with him. He was the only politician who actually answered the questions put to him rather than going round in circles trying to evade them.

Anja Sun 20-Jan-19 22:10:35

GG on the contrary you are too obvious.

GabriellaG54 Sun 20-Jan-19 22:36:16

Many years ago, too many for some to remember, there was a certain bath you, a little round character which, no matter how many times you pushed him under the water, always bobbed up again.
In that regard, NF and I have some similarity. grin

GabriellaG54 Sun 20-Jan-19 22:37:27

* you toy.

paddyann Sun 20-Jan-19 23:37:46

If there is a god can he please make sure Farage keeps out of politics or at least out of the current fiasco being played out in WM .They can make a big enough mess without him just imagine how much worse he'd make it.

Jalima1108 Sun 20-Jan-19 23:53:24

during the Brexit campaign he was good at putting his point across whether or not you agreed with him.
I think that's right merlotgran

He came across as affable, friendly, articulate and has quite a pleasant speaking voice in fact - if you disregard what he is saying.

Anja Mon 21-Jan-19 08:24:49

He does come across as all those things Jalima

petra Mon 21-Jan-19 09:09:04

Love him or loathe him, he did what he said he as going do: unlike most politicians angry

Bridgeit Mon 21-Jan-19 09:38:26

You are right Petra, but then he stands back smirking at the mayhem ( excuse the pun) that he causes, whilst feathering his own nest!

varian Mon 21-Jan-19 09:38:45

Self serving, vain, corrupt, racist liar

petra Mon 21-Jan-19 10:05:50

I think your description of NF could apply to many who sit in both houses.
