Nigel Farage to “return to frontline politics” and these 17 reactions will make your day
Nigel Farage 'returning to frontline politics' is a bit like me returning to Cheadle Hulme, a place I've never been.

So let's see
You've ben fined more money than most people see in a lifetime for misusing public funds
You've lost your job as a hate monger on the radio
So your income has taken a hit
Then you announce a return to politics
I wonder what the connection could be 🙄 https://t.co/KIVL3IdhMg

Obviously the garnishing of his wages to repay misappropriated funds is having more of an effect than we thought. Or maybe the handlers just want a little more bang for their ruble. https://t.co/fdOLMVKR3L

As he’s on the BBC more often than Huw Edwards, it’s hard to believe he’s been away. https://t.co/nUJOSLiuz2

Maybe a new campaign will give us a chance to ask Nigel Farage why he advocated a soft Norway style Brexit during the referendum then described it as treachery once he'd conned people into voting leave.

Here’s writer, James Felton, imagining how Farage’s announcement might transfer to another sector.
“I have returned to frontline surgery”
“But you aren’t qualifie-“
“I have returned”
“You failed 7 times to qualify – you were shit at it”
[attempting to do surgery whilst the medical staff restrain me]
“I. Have. Returned.” https://t.co/fY9PNJ04b1

In case you thought it was just Remain supporters reacting badly to the news, this self-described Brexiteer had something to add.
As a pragmatic Brexiteer I look forward to being among those taking you on, you self centred vainglorious famewhore.
You’ve given up principle for populist adulation & don’t give a damn about your country or, indeed, making Brexit work.
You are a disgrace to yourself & the cause. https://t.co/TvuyPS6sKD
