But he’s not alone in seeking to influence the UK from the far right whilst living far away. Note that the Wikipedia entry for Tim Worstall says:
Since September 2007, Worstall has been the press officer for the UK Independence Party.
He lives in Portugal with his wife.
I guess that’s one form of independence from the UK, Rather odd though that Worstall only has the right to live in Portugal becasue the UK is a member of the EU.
What is it about the Euro-hating tax bashers that makes them want to live in the EU? Could it be that they’re just a bunch of hypocrites after all? Surely not?
So says Ritchie.
A few minor points. I am not the press officer for UKIP. I was….and for the time that I was I was of course working in London.
I\’ve also lived in Russia (note, not a member of the EU) and I\’ve lived in the US (not a member of the EU). So the idea that you can only live in a country that is not the UK as a result of the EU seems to be, well, less than fully true.
As, for example, the existence of the Fabrica do Ingles in the next town down the road from me might indicate. As, indeed, some other familiar names from the supermarket shelves might indicate, the English have been living in Portugal since well before the EU was even a gleam in anyone\’s eye.
But let\’s take this point seriously for a moment, shall we? \”But he’s not alone in seeking to influence the UK …. whilst living far away.\”
