Nigel Farage has been getting himself out and about recently and has been interviewed by Tory blogger Iain Dale in this month's GQ. Nige is pretty much the only UKIP MEP to get any press coverage or TV appearances (presumably because he is the only elected U-kipper who can string a coherent sentence together without sounding like a swivel-eyed lunatic). However, while he and his minions have been talking a good game about the Euro elections, he seems a bit more candid in this interview.
Farage plaintively says, "if we do badly, then I’ve tried my hardest, and that’s that. It will be time for someone else to do it” and then adds “I have tried to change the party, to modernize it, change the attitude and outlook." Given that he has to deal with the collection of nut-jobs and cretins that frequent the so-called Democracy Forum of UKIP supporters, it almost makes you feel sorry for him.
Still, it seems as though Farage has realised that the game is up. Let's hope so.
