Say what you like about Nick Robinson, but he’s rather good at nailing down a slippery character. From the horse’s mouth:
Nick Robinson: So why isn’t [your wife] taking a British person’s job?
Nigel Farage: Because nobody else could do that job.
NR: No British person could work for you as your secretary?
NF: Not unless they married me.
NR: You don’t think anybody’s capable of doing that job?
NF: What, marrying me?
NR: No, of doing the job as your secretary.
NF: I don’t know anyone who would work those hours, no.
Do as I say, not as I do; isn’t that the very definition of hypocrisy?
After the shock ending of the last episode (is that a spoiler?), it’s a little difficult to remember sometimes that we are only in the very early stages of the season. Most of the face-slapping moments, historically, have happened in the ninth or tenth episode. It’s a mark of just how busy this seasons is/will be that we’re into major plot developments so early on.
That said, the last episode also established that Bran’s story is as dull as ever. So some things don’t change at least.
But on the whole this is shaping up to be the season of broken things, the season where so many things are past the point where they can be fixed.
Read on…(and mind the spoilers!)
