And it’s a bloke. The UKIP leader says he wants to form a European “dream team” with Italian comedian and anti-corruption blogger-turned-politician Beppe Grillo. Guido has always had a soft spot for the charismatic Grillo, best known for organising huge anti-establishment rallies – and for his unkempt silver bouffant. Farage reckons he could forge an alliance with Grillo’s Five Star Movement after May’s European elections: “We can have a bit of fun, we can be a bit naughty. The Five Star Movement believe in asking the people what they think. All I can say is, ‘Hooray!’” Bloggers turning to politics? It’ll never catch on.
