I expect his mother loved him as all ours did. or she wouldn't have have been kept up at all hours to help him survive like ours did. He's a man among equals on that score. How he's regarded since depends on what he did after that. I judge people not only by whether they have the ability to gather the common vote, but by whether they have the common interest at heart. Farage tries his best to have the common touch, in the photo shoots but he loses it the moment he walks out the bar surrounded by his henchmen, the moment the photo shoot is over. He's just another politician, doing the same thing the rest of them do. You won't find Farage walking into a pub on his own to canvass opinion. It's just stage managed stuff like the rest of the pathetic alternative to politics we get offered these days. You could choose to hate any of the political parties on offer and be applauded for it because there isn't a single one with a policy worth voting for that would give hope for our offspring.
