    Sir Nigel Farage?

    I hear today that some total misguideds think that Nigel Farage merits a knighthood - or indeed a peerage!

    Honest to God - these people are dangerous. Utter misguided lunancy - nothing could be more designed to crash the honours system into total disrepute. The guy is a disgraceful, lying conman. He is no hero. He has done NOTHING for this country or the people of this country that merits ANY honour.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Job done

    He's probably been a more successful politician than most of the wasters in Parliament during my lifetime

    Re: Sir Nigel Farage?

    I don't like the guy at all but he didn't become an MEP by being despised by everyone, and he didn't become the leader of UKIP by not appealing to more than one or two people. The Leave campaign was not run on whimsical fairy dust, and appealed to a significant cross section of the population.

    And an honours system that can give an OBE to a Parish counsellor in some obscure village can surely recognise someone like Farage, however distasteful his politics is.

    Like him or loath him, you cannot argue that he has been instrumental in shaping Uk politics for the next few years

    Whether that is a good thing remains to be seen

    He remains highly influential , he has the incoming US presidents ear, and is seeking a role somewhere.

    I get the feeling that we have not heard the last of him, but as regards a knighthood, seeing as he is anti- establishment and it is the establishment that picks the honours,
    then I just dont see it.

    Totally. He seems to have managed t make politics relevant to swathes of the UK population, while dividing opinion at the same time. He'll be back but not sure he's the first name you'd think of for such an establishment recognition

    He is a MEP for the UK to present the interest of the UK and he doesn't attend parliament In what he is supposed to do,and paid to do, he is totally useless. So he probably gets an honour at some point.

    Probably the most successful UK politician alive. You say he has done nothing for this country well I disagree, he is responsible for the UK leaving the EU.
