It is as I always feared, Nigel Farage's huge ego was always going to be more important than our cause of leaving the EU. He has handed Cameron all the ammunition he needs with his crass poster of Syrian migrants to blow us Leavers apart. He says the timing of its release was unfortunate coming just beforethe murder of Jo Cox. But what did he do to recall the poster after the murder? Nothing I fear.
He did well to get us the Referendum. I urged for him not to campaign in the referendum. His job was done. Leave running the campaign to Gisela Stuart and Michael Gove. Vote Leave was the officially designated opposition. All Farage could do was split the vote and damage Vote Leave. He has achieved that. His claims of personal victimhood are nauseating.
The Warsi woman was known, like Farage, for overweaning personal ambition.. She was rejected as an MP candidate by a number of Tory constituency associations. Cameron put her in the Lords where I expect she will soon be joined by Farage. It is what he always wanted and a grateful Cameron will be delighted grant him this bauble.
The Warsi non story looks like a put up job to me. Like Farage she was never a member of Vote Leave, either as a foot soldier like me, or a spokesman like Dan Hanaan.
It has all the makings of a Shakespearian tragedy, over weaning unscrupulous ambition brought down by the same. I look forward to reading of Warsi's next job.
