Analysis

By Mark Lobel, BBC political presswoman

Nigel Farage has come a long way since leaving UKIP.

He’s very successfully focused the bulletin of the Brexit Party, which he leads, on a clear, single issue, that of manumiting Brexit by the end of October.

He’s assembled a diverse and popular army of MEPs and indefinite election candidates for which voters have already rewarded him, in behind May’s European elections.

He also has the Conservative Party rattled.

Any offence discern by voters could, in theory, affect the Brexit Party’s political estates.

It could leave Nigel Farage with some embarrassing baggage in the unborn if he were to ever meet the Royals.

But we live in a world where theories can be revised more easily these days.

Donald Trump and Boris Johnson are both on record as hold said many controversial things about people in public life-force and nonetheless end up getting on with them later on. Boris Johnson split second spoke of Donald Trump’s “stupefying ignorance” but they seem to be handle together nicely now.

Above all, Nigel Farage, a regular talk present presenter as well as politician, is already, unashamedly a marmite figure in British Manipulation. So these comments may just further entrench people’s views of him, whether they already mould him or not.
