Follow the Money

Having a job is a good antidote to obsessions of various kinds. When we are trying to make a living we have less time to devote to conspiracy theories or, in my case, to seething at the likes of Nigel Farage.

I accept the truth of that observation, just as I accept that if you are looking for a balanced account of the rights and wrongs of Brexit, you have quite obviously come to the wrong place. I am sure that there are good arguments on both sides, but if we think that there is nothing untoward or unseemly in Mr Farage continuing to receive his £84,000 salary as a Member of the European Parliament, even as he has successfully campaigned for Britain to leave the European Union, then we have lost all sense of right and wrong.

Isn't it possible for Brexit supporters to condemn Mr Farage's behaviour? Apparently not.

In these polarised times, it seems that you cannot espouse a political point of view without embracing, or at the very least turning a blind eye, to the antics of those promulgating such a view.
