Is it not already time for people of all political persuasions and Brexit opinions to call out Johnson, much like his comrade across the pond, as a national embarrassment and someone completely out of his depth?

First quarter of 2016 USD exchange rate = 1.45
Latest quarter of 2019 USD exchange rate = 1.25
A 14% decline
£1000 in 2016 gets you $1450
£1000 in 2019 gets you $1250
Difference = $200
For a salary of £35k, a UK tax payer contributes £4.56 to the EU per month = £54.73 per annum (source euworthit.uk)
Let’s assume £2000 of your annual spend is actually purchased by the supplier in USD (the main currency of global trade), a very conservative figure, its likely to be much higher than this. So this is a “best case” assumption, reality is likely to be much worse.
In the first quarter of 2016 you would have received $2900 worth of goods.
In the latest quarter of 2019 you would have received $2500 worth of goods.
So that’s a $400 (or £320) cost to you. Per year.
A leave vote, on this very simple one parameter, has cost you £320 per year, for 3 years – near enough £1000. And leave voters tell us £54.73 per year to be part of the free trade area with its great trade deals with other countries is too expensive.

I wonder if we should be allowed to change our mind!

Does anyone with the intelligence to understand a word of that listen to a word Farage says these days?

The Leader of the House of Commons views Farage as the most important political figure outside of Parliament in the last 30 years.

Because he's a quality salesman pedalling more sh*te than ever before - that's why. 

Hitler was the most important political figure in Germany during the 20th Century.
