I know Nigel very well and I said consistently that he was going to do a lot better on this show than people think, says Matt Goodwin.
He is much more personable in real life, I think many of the portrayals of Farage in public don’t really reflect the real Farage.
He’s already big on things like Tik Tok, he’s already quite well known among Generation Z.
There is a unique opportunity here for Farage to come out to say okay you’ve seen me in real life, you’ve see what I’m like now I want to continue this this journey and start something new.
An alignment of Farage and Braverman could be what the British people are crying out for
The interesting thing about British politics right now is there is a constellation of people that potentially could come together.
You’ve got the disillusioned former Cabinet ministers like Suella Braverman, you’ve got the 2019 MPs who are going to lose their seats next year who are going to be looking for something to do and you’ve got Nigel Farage who is potentially building his brand and becoming a national figure again.
And you’ve got a constellation of issues that play remarkably well to that kind of movement. People want to talk about migration, borders, the woke, Law and Order Hamas supporters in Britain.So potentially there is something there that could be interesting, that could be significant.
Politically 2024 is going to be enormous, but I think it might also potentially see another twist and turn in British politics. We might see the rise of something that is once again railing against the big parties.
The wood on the fire is ready – someone just needs to drop the match and whoever does could become a political star
The wood pile is there and it’s covered in gasoline – the question is who’s going to drop the match?
That’s where we are in the country. I think everybody is genuinely utterly fed up with what has happened to the country, not just economically but politically, culturally, we no longer know who we are, we’re no longer proud of who we are.
We are I think lost and looking for somebody or something to project that sense of belief, to give the country a compelling vision, a uniting vision that speaks to the majority, the forgotten majority.
And whoever gets there first is going to find themselves being catapulted into the forefront of British politics.
