Quote of the day

"I don’t listen to music, I don’t watch television, I don’t read."

And to think people have the nerve to suggest that Nigel Farage is ignorant! Actually, this is the man himself, in an interview with the Observer's Rachel Cooke, who amusingly compares him to Zippy from Rainbow on the grounds that "Little of what he says bears even the slightest scrutiny, for all that he interrupts with alacrity".

Incidentally, hats off to the Guardian for handing Farage's book The Purple Revolution to Will Self to review. Self is cutting in his characterisation of Farage, branding him a "puffed-up little saloon-bar bore" rather than the "swashbuckling risk-taker who beerily belches in the face of life’s vicissitudes" that he imagines himself to be.
