I’m perversely fascinated with the Twitter biography of leave.EU communications director Andy Wigmore.
Where to start? I thought only ageing masochists called themselves “bad boys” – and if he thinks Trump feels anything more than vague insecurity about his hair loss when he hears the word “Wigmore” he is fooling himself.
The British right suffers from SOMS (Sad Old Man Syndrome), a curious disorder that makes grown men crave attention, bicker petulantly and, in general, behave as if politics is a giant playground. UKIP is imploding like a 5-a-side football in which every each spotty goon wants to be the next Lionel Messi and I think it will spread more and more to the Conservatives. Politicians are especially vulnerable to this because politics attracts people with complexes about power.
