A Flocc Of Anglo-Saxons

Nigel Farage Talking Some Farrago

note; flocc is Anglo-Saxon for a crowd or flock.

The Guardian
Nigel Farage to become commentator on Rupert Murdoch's Fox News
Former Ukip leader’s love affair with Donald Trump’s America grows as he lands political analyst role on US news channel
Nigel Farage’s love affair with Donald Trump’s America has taken another leap forward with news the former Ukip leader is to become a commentator on Fox News.

Fox announced Farage would be joining to provide political analysis on its main news channel and its business network in a short statement during Trump’s swearing-in as the 45th US president.

Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who has attempted to forge ties with Trump following his victory, and was also a backer of the campaign to leave the EU. New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman has reported that the media mogul, who owns the Sun and Times newspapers in London, speaks to Trump at least three times a week...

...Farage repeatedly praised Trump, describing him as “the only person I have ever met in my life who makes me feel like an introvert” and saying that “Brexit is great, but Trump is Brexit plus plus plus”...

Great. More Brits on TV. And these are not the witty ones, like Monty Python, nor the tastefully talented ones, like Masterpiece; these are more like Benny Hill, only a bit lower of the brow.
I don't like what that Australian Rupert Murdoch is doing to the country.

However, going back over that "...Brexit plus plus plus..." bit of Farage-o (or farrago)  indicates he might be good on FOX and Friends or whatever that morning blah is. He is apparently capable of profound thoughts.
