With you on your thinking H but I tend to give fair credence to other posters and try to understand their views, even if their views are total crap and their understanding of current affairs moronic.
I salute your indefatigability.

Theroux never gets to the grit. He’s too fawning.

I’d have to go with Partridge.
I'd go with his comedy team mate, Chris Morris in full Day Today mode.

We're going a bit off-piste aren't we?

Whoever it was who was charged with teasing the truth out of Farage, I suspect it would not be easy. He may be a Brexiteer, but he's not an idiot.

Someone on here said he's got the gift of the gab. I also think he's quite sharp, and is able to deflect an attack well.
He's well known for throwing a hissy fit or stomping off when grilled forensically

Although Partridge interviewing Farage would provide great entertainment.
Partridge would skewer him simply by agreeing with most of fhis policies. Within 5 minutes they'd be reminiscing about stuff from the 70s

Alan: "The Black & White Minstrel Show - what's wrong with that?"
Nigel: " Exactly. A harmless bit of fun. I knew a black man and he loved it."

I’d say it’s unlikely anyone would want to form a coalition with Reform.
I agree nobody would probably want to form a coalition with Reform, but coalition working would be likely to force any extreme partners to moderate their demands and put aside their more extreme policies

Like in Israel?

The way it works is the exact opposite. With a seat at the table, minority lunatics simply drag the piece into the abyss.

Eight Reform candidates and their misogyny.

At the bottom of that report, see the following responses from Farage, neither of which bear a passing resemblance to recognising it, apologising for it or owning it.

1. Whataboutery ( = everyone else filters out their own nutters, but our vetting company failed to filter ours out)

'I can assure you that when the Labour Party go through those that apply, when the Conservative Party go through those that apply, they have to reject many."

2. Deflection ( = the Reform candidates are the real victims here)

He also said the party had had "an awful lot of candidates being stitched up in the most extraordinary way, with quotes taken out of context".

If you follow Farage's comments to their logical conclusion he wants a return to the post - WW2, pre- NATO 1948 situation with Western Europe a collection of individual states and Eastern Europe under the control of Moscow.
