Poor Nigel is Finished
Whatever happens in the election next month, I fear that poor Nigel Farage is finished as a force. Itís his own fault of course.
If the Tories win then it will probably be because the Brexit Party does poorly. And so Nigelís position as a reformer and kingmaker will be finished. He will have no authority. And a sort of Brexit will mean that he and his party will have no further point.
If there is a hung parliament and Corbyn or some other Labour Party horror becomes Prime Minister (with the aid of the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish Nationalists) then Nigel will be blamed for taking votes away from the Conservative Party.
Of course, if that happens there will be no one left in the country to care much about Mr Farage or, indeed, anything else.
