The Times cartoonist Morten Morland pretty much nailed the present state of politics with his take on festive Christmas trees.
I particularly like Donald Trump as a vulgar looking KKK tree with Ukip leader Nigel Farage desperately trying to jump on board with his new best chum (or so he thinks).
No sooner do I write about Nigel Farage trying to ingratiate himself even further with Donald Trump, that the oily former Ukip leader turns up at Trump Tower in New York.
Now it should be noted that Mr Farage's day job is that of an MEP (Member of the European Parliament) which last time I looked was in Brussels and Strasborug - not on the eastern seaboard of America .
So Farage 'lollygagging' around the Big Apple at the taxpayers' expense seems quite outrageous to me and hopefully someone is running a keen eye over his expenses.
Nigel Farage visits Donald Trump’s New York headquarters

Nigel Farage has visited Donald Trump’s headquarters in New York - but it is unclear whether he met the United States president-elect. Earlier, the former Ukip leader said he did not plan to meet Mr Trump because the controversial tycoon was “busy with other stuff”.
American Gothic (15/12/16)
I presume the inspiration for the cartoon comes from the loathsome Nigel Farage who has been touting for work with the new American President-elect, Donald Trump.
Loathsome Creature (23/11/16)
But that tradition has been abandoned during Barack Obama's two terms of office in which America's first black President has been attacked on an unprecedented and personal level by his political opponents.
Including political pygmies like Nigel Farage who had the cheek the other day to call President Obama a "creature" and a 'loathsome individual" who couldn't stand the UK according to the UKIP leader who has failed repeatedly to win a seat in the House of Commons.
Just the other day Donald Trump, America's new President-elect suggested that Nigel Farage might be a good choice as the UK's ambassador to the United States.
Now what this had to do with Donald Trump is a good question because Nigel Farage is to diplomacy what bulls are to China shops.
If you ask me Nigel cooked up this wizard wheeze during his 'Gissa job' visit to New York, which was a handy diversion from UKIP tearing itself apart and recent allegations that UKIP has misspent almost £500,000 of EU funding on its pro-Brexit campaign.
