Current Phenomenon: Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage may have been known to the political pundits for several years but to the man in the street he seems to have sprung into prominence only in the last few months. He looks like the man in the pub, and speaks like the man in the pub, so what he says sounds like good old-fashioned common sense to those who can hear. However, Bertran Russell warned us that common sense was not so common, so are we in danger of being misled by the man in the pub with the loudest voice, or should we all be trying to listen to what is being said?
