Claims that “After days of wondering whether the Tories were even going to turn up to their long-demanded election, the PM has finally set off his campaign in a pyrotechnical display of BBC-bristling polemic and fizzing optimism. Comparing Corbyn to Stalin, Boris Johnson has vowed to “unleash the potential of the country”, with tax cuts, freeports and a Northern Powerhouse revival. But as the passionate leader of a professionally mediocre party, he resembles a fire trying to light on a pile of soggy leaves”.
And, in Lord of the Rings, Frodo Baggins undertakes an epic journey and battles all as he seeks to destroy the One Ring, which gives absolute power to whoever wears it. When Frodo finally reaches the Fire of Mount Doom, he succumbs to temptation and chooses not to destroy the ring, but keep it for himself.
Recently, friends of Nigel Farage have taken to comparing him to Frodo.
Mr Farage has spent a lifetime campaigning to get Britain out of the European Union. He overcame incredible odds to become one of the few who can say they made Brexit happen. But has HE got the ring? Time will tell!
