Sounds to me like Nigel Farage is about to step back into British politics, big time, as the man who will lead Britain out of Lockdown:
There is no political voice opposing this new national lockdown in England. I think that may change very soon. pic.twitter.com/0mJ0WFfXDP

Because of his role in contriving Brexit, Farage is already the most consequential British politician alive. If he did this, that would become doubly true.
What people forget, many because they simply choose to, is that Farage is very good at arguing, as the above clip illustrates. Also, he knows how not to be silenced. At present, very depressingly, about a quarter of Britain, maybe even less, thinks Lockdown should end. Farage could double that percentage very quickly, and make Lockdown unsustainable.
If I’m right, this is the best British news there’s been since Lockdown began.
LATER: JH-B‘s all over this, as is Ivor Cummins. Cummins, like me, has become increasingly desperate and bad-tempered in recent weeks. This will surely cheer him up also.
Yes, this is definitely happening.
