Re: RE: Nigel Farage...
"On the upside - Farage will now have to find a job, and it might shock him to find out he'll have to turn up to get paid."
Sorry, no. Farage is now needed more than ever before. In Brussels. The place where he has most of his political experience. Where he now must switch sides and defend the status quo, the indefensible, against all the anglo-sceptics. The indefensible, of course, will be the exit deal.
Why? Because the traditional UK-style smoke-filled room deals were ended long ago. Because European Union foreign policy is not like UK foreign policy. It is the business of the parliament. Any exit deal of any kind between the UK and the Member States will have to be successfully defended in the parliament. Against... the anglo-sceptics.
