Very simple. After 30 years of trying to represent a group of voters in the UK Parliament and finally being successful, how long will Nigel Farage actually represent his constituents ?

He won't abandon his MP status. It's the key to his legitimacy.

He will be constantly absent gallivanting off on his other escapades, but you can do that as an MP, as Boris showed.

And then the people of Clacton will reelect him after Nige spoonfeeds them more bullshit about how they're pioneers fighting for the future of their country.

And he plans to bring President Trump to Claction.

He’s going to milk this.

'serve'?



I reckon he'll just hold a rally from time to time spouting shit about what a great honour it is to serve the wonderful people of Clacton. As for doing any constituency MP graft... Nah, grifting yep, grafting nah.

When did he ever represent anyone but himself? Farage is all about Farage and his own relentless pursuit of a global platform of influence along with Steve Bannon and other far right popularist ideologues around the globe.

Does anyone really think he cares about Clacton? He chose Clacton because it was the only Constituency to elect a UKIP MP in a GE (after winning the seat in the 2014 by-election) and they were the right demographic (mainly white impoverished ) to spin his immigration narratives to - it was also a safe Tory seat so there was no threat from the left.

I know that’s not the answer you are looking for but in the spirit of the poll, I’ll give him 6-12 months before he gets bored with the pedestrianism of the mother of all parliaments . :wink:

He won't quit so the only way out is being convicted of a crime or a lengthy suspension and even then the people of Clacton would need to vote for a by-election. I reckon full term and beyond without even attempting to do the job of a constituency MP.

There's no voting option for 1-5 years. :)

Agree. The irony is that Wes Streeting, Angela Raynor and even Kier Starmer are probably at far greater risk of being unseated come the next election, unless they find alternative constituencies.

Did we really need another Farridge thread?
And the OP loves a public poll too

Two very simple questions
What do you think?
And why the need for a poll?

Serve? I doubt he'll ever do that. Remain an MP nominally for Clacton? He'll probably hold on to that unless he gets kicked out for some stunt or other that he tries to pull.

If he brings the Donald to Essex, I can pretty much guarantee that the Presidential limo will get nicked before you can say ‘walk-about’ and end up for sale round the back of a flat-roofed boozer in Pitsea.
