Well, I was wrong. Putin has gone much further than I thought he would. \n\nA consequence of EU and NATO expansion, which came to a head in 2014. It made no sense to poke the Russian bear with a stick.\n\nThese are dark days for Europe.
Of course, people criticised Farage for his take and said he should have finished the tweet at "I was wrong".
No condemnation of Putin\u2019s invasion of #Ukraine & no support for its people. #Farage is no democrat & previous followers are now seeing him for what he is really is - a Putin apologist.https://twitter.com/nigel_farage/status/1496832757518974978\u00a0\u2026
To think I used to stand around at this guy\u2019s rallies hearing people shout the word \u201ctraitor!\u201d at the likes of John Major and Tony Blair.\n\nA reminder that our values are more under threat from within than without. Farage and Trump don\u2019t disguise what side they\u2019re on.https://twitter.com/Nigel_Farage/status/1496832757518974978\u00a0\u2026
Farage could have condemned Putin.\nFarage should have condemned Putin.\nInstead Farage blames NATO and the EU for extending the hand of friendship to Ukraine.\nBeneath contempt.https://twitter.com/Nigel_Farage/status/1496832757518974978\u00a0\u2026
something I don't say very often because I kind of assume all my followers already think it, but worth reiterating now: Nigel Farage is really, really bad. Just a bad person who is bad for the world. Either stupid or malign, and probably bothhttps://twitter.com/Nigel_Farage/status/1496832757518974978\u00a0\u2026
