His association with extremist Ted Malloch is more disturbing than the newfound distaste for his party
Nigel Farage clutched his pearls and resigned from Ukip last week, protesting that he of all people could not possibly associate with criminals. The decision of his successor Gerard Batten to hire convicted fraudster and inveterate yob Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson) was simply “too awful to contemplate”.
Farage isn’t always so choosy about the company he keeps. His alliance with “Ted” Malloch, a little man who thinks he’s a big deal, tells all you need to know about Farage and the movements that now dominate Britain, the US and the emerging dictatorships of eastern Europe.
What kind of failure as a braggart do you have to be to fail to impress the 45th president of the United States?
