Every old school Bullingdon Tory is like this too, less so the red-wall working class hard right that I think Farage is closer to culturally. That being said the amount of failed attempts Farage has had, he definitely does want to be an MP, probably just because in his mind’s eye he is Thatcher II: Electric Boogaloo.
Wish he was a lot more like Thatcher
Excited to go to itchy and scratchy land?
Read something also about how the Trumps were never properly accepted into NYC High Society because they weren’t old old old Manhattan money, they were outer boroughs normies done good, and it drove him crazy because it was basically all he wanted
Absolutely nothing bad could ever come of someone driven by both an excess of self confidence and crippling self doubt, right
Trump doesn’t have enough self-doubt. What he’s got in spades is denial. He is literally incapable of accepting any form of defeat/loss/joke at his expense. There’s always someone else to blame, forever.
I’d also argue that he hasn’t got any real self-confidence, he’s just deluded and arrogant
true self-confidence includes the confidence to admit being wrong, admit not understanding everything, admit that other people have skillsets you don’t have etc.
the current govt already have Farage’s USP’s covered
Can’t wait for Farage’s Pogtastic Weekend Preview with the totally sus Big Chungus
It’s kind of wonderful in a way. As the team grows, any of the bellends who’ve tried to take a ‘ah but you see this is about presenting all sides unbiased’ tack, not least Neil himself, are going to do it with a twitch in their eye.
