I thought Farage was rather good in that debate yesterday. It’s about time someone stuck it to the bovine, self-important, audiences – it takes a bit of guts to do that. My suspicion is not that the audience was unrepresentative (although it often is in these shows) but that the liberal left simply will not listen to views with which they disagree and feel a childish need to boo. It is the mindset which insists not that other people may be mistaken, but that they are foul for having the views they hold and should be subjected to spite and nastiness. As you are aware, I hate these totalitarian people and – pace my earlier blog – yes, I do understand that a large proportion of them are Labour supporters.

Leanne Wood, meanwhile, strikes me as being as thick as a chicken parmo with extra béchamel and a grilled cheddar topping. On some chips.
