When Nigel Farage eventually vacates his UKIP leadership, there is absolutely no one in the party remotely capable of taking over and commanding the same knowledge, respect and oratory which he generates.

His is a remarkable man.

Feared by many in the establishment, who seemed to have cast him in the wilderness of politics because of his popularity and achievements.

No one comes to mind in the UKIP pecking order who would be confident and brave enough to address the Brussels Assembly as Farage has done so many times.

Expressing his contemptuous disgust for the whole gathering and what they are supposed to stand for.

It simply takes confidence and guts.

He will be sadly missed as a man who totally embraced the future and prosperity of the British people.
