An image of Nigel Farage outside his home shows his true character
God help us: They say we get the leaders we deserve and our Picture of the Week clearly shows what we’d be getting if we ever elect Nigel Farage as our Prime Minister.
The image shows a jubilant Farage outside his Kent home just as it was announced he’d become the UKIP candidate for Thanet South at next year’s elections. Behind him is a Volvo estate car on a block-paved driveway, a caravan locked inside a gated compound, a Leylandii hedge and semi detached cottage complete with a satellite dish and twee leaded light windows. Here, indeed, is a picture of what Britain sadly has become.
Tony Blair’s electoral success in 1997 was credited to having had attracted the vote of ‘Mondeo man’ and John Major before him focused on ‘white van man’. From this picture, it seems, Farage is a man who focuses on a very different kettle of fish.
The electorate should be warned. It’s time to move on from UKIP: Do we really want to become the land of ‘caravan man’?
