Nigel Farage has produced a bizarre video where he praises his one time foe Tony Blair encouraging him to become the UK’s vaccination Tsar, saying “he commands respect” and is “seriously bright”.
Taking to Twitter last night following the Prime Minister’s lockdown announcement he looked notably aggrieved with new restrictions on the horizon that are likely to be the “hardest yet” for the nation.
I do not agree with Tony Blair on much but he has led the debate on vaccinations well.
Put him in charge of the vaccine programme and let's have a government of all the talents to end this unmitigated disaster.

Describing the current Cabinet as the “most low grade I’ve ever seen in my lifetime” Mr Farage said former Prime Minister Tony Blair should be called up to lead the government’s vaccine response.
He commented: “Are we really going to trust the same people, the same Cabinet ministers, who made such a mess of testing in the early days?
Whose almost every promise they have failed to deliver upon. Or is it time to think about a different approach?
Why not get people like Tony Blair involved to help us solve a national crisis?”
He has been universally attacked by many of his followers as well as those on the left who see Tony Blair as a war criminal. Former UKIPPER Godfrey Bloom has told him to take a rest whereas others have gone further accusing him of being bought off.
WOW.@Nigel_Farage sells out totally.
He's calling for Tony Blair to be put in charge of delivering the vaccinations!!
He should be calling for the end of #Lockdown…. instead he is fully paid up to delivering the biggest scam ever.#Farage sold us out on #Brexit….now this !! https://t.co/Gk5JG6FbgQ
