‘MISTER Brexit’ Nigel Farage has put himself forward as president-elect Donald Trump’s ‘EU ambassador’, should the future commander-in-chief see any need for such a position.
After shaking the British political establishment to its very core with his successful demonisation campaign against the European Union, Farage was delighted with Trump’s victory, saying he welcomed a president who ‘understands our post-Brexit values’.
The interim UKIP leader has denied any interest in retaining the role and jetted off to the United States on Wednesday, slyly implying that it was for talks with the future leader of the free world in a radio interview.
“Is he going to offer me a job? I’m hoping he might do” said Farage. “He will be in need of a proper Eurosceptic ambassador in Brussels for the European Union. I would rather like that job.”
The ex city commodities broker and the real estate tycoon railed against the financial establishment together with Farage plumping for Trump at rallies across America, introduced as Mister Brexit, although few in attendance had a clue who he was.
Trump isn’t Farages’ only American idol. Next month he plans to echo Martin Luther King’s million man march on Washington by recruiting 100,000 Leave voters to march on the supreme court. They hope to pressurise judges into preventing the British parliament from having any say on Brexit.
