I Know People don’t Like me Doing Politics

But in the list of insane things that have happened over the last five years, this stands out as insaner than most.

Nigel Farage appointed to advisory board of green finance firm


As inappropriate appointees for jobs go, this surely ranks with Tony Blair as Middle East Peace Envoy, or Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.

And while I’m having a rant, what about this. British expats in Spain are having to return home due to Brexit.

“returning expat Shaun Cromber voted Leave but said he did not believe Brexit would end his Spanish lifestyle. He said: “Yes I voted out, but I didn’t realise it would come to this.” ‘


Seriously? These people actually exist? I thought it was a caricature made up by remainers. A person whose lifestyle depends on freedom of movement within the EU actually voted to lose that freedom and now he’s surprised at the consequences? Honestly “stupid” doesn’t do justice to this. They haven’t invented a word for whatever this is.

There, I feel better now.
