The ambassador’s favourite
IN FAIRNESS, Nigel Farage is on a roll and he certainly knows how to take advantage of it and to grab the headlines.
His latest jape was at the Ritz Hotel in London when he was guest of honour at a reception to thank him for all that he had done to get Britain out of Europe and he turned up with a huge bowl full of Ferrero Rocher chocolates, which for years were advertised on TV as the ‘ambassador’s favourite’.
More seriously after thanking millionaire Arron Banks who paid for the reception and bankrolled the Leave campaign he told guests who included a couple of conservative MPs that he didn’t think that the conservative government would be fit to handle Brexit and there would be “Another big seismic shock” if Britain hadn’t left the EU by the time of the next election in 2020.
According to a BBC report he said: “When people look back in 100 or 200 years, 2016 will be seen as one of the great historic years – a year of big political revolution.
“Brexit was the first brick knocked out of the establishment wall and then look what we got on 8 November. The election of ‘The Donald’ was something of a completely different order.”
In the meantime of course, no-one in government is taking the Ambassadorial suggestion too seriously and Philip Hammond has said that if he wants advice from Farage, that he can always give him a call.
