No fizz in Nigel's big moment.

THERE were two doses of Nigel Farage on the telly last week.

The keenly anticipated meeting with Russell Brand on BBC Question Time turned out to be a damp squib because, despite ranting on and reading from notes, Russell Brand had nothing constructive to say.

He made himself look rather silly and even though a blue-haired heckler seemed to back him up, it transpired that she was a former member of the Socialist Workers party called Bunny La Roche!

Those damned Lefties! The counter-attack for Farage was led by a man with a walking stick, whom we now discover was the brother of a UKIP Euro MP.

All very stupid, although I liked Brand's remark that Farage was just a Poundland version of Enoch Powell.

And I enjoyed comments in the media about Question Time turning into an upmarket version of the Jeremy Kyle Show.

Then the 'posh' couple from Gogglebox, Steph and Dom, met Nigel Farage for a Channel 4 documentary. Again, I was expecting much, but it was another damp squib.

Although I have to say it looked as if they were having a lot of fun, so I might well take a trip down to Sandwich, where they run their hotel, and try out one of Dom's legendary Bloody Marys.
