Sir Ed Davey, acting leader of the Liberal Democrats (remember them?) has written to Kent Police demanding they investigate Nigel Farage's pub visit.
Mr Farage tweeted a picture of himself at lunchtime today (Saturday) having a pint in a pub, exactly as millions of Britains have enjoyed doing today, due to lockdown restrictions being eased. Davey, however, obviously looking for a 'gotcha', noted that Mr Farage had tweeted from the United States two weeks earlier and so believed Mr Farage should have self-isolated for a period of 14 days from the moment he arrived back in the UK.
"There are clearly serious questions to answer for Nigel Farage" said gloating Davey. "It is clear from his his social media posts that he was in America on 20th of June, and he was pictured at a Trump rally that evening. Given the current requirements for visitors returning to the UK to isolate for 14 full days on their return, Nigel Farage appears to be in violation of the quarantine." he added.
Has-been politician Davey went on to say "By choosing to go to the pub when it appears he should have been staying at home, Mr Farage is showing a flagrant disregard for the safety of people in his community."
So important was getting one over on Farage in Davey's mind that he has written a letter to Kent's Chief Constable.
In his letter to Chief Constable Alan Pughsley - (which has also been sent to Home Secretary Priti Patel) - the forgotten politician said: "I write to ask you to immediately investigate this issue, establish the timeline of events for Mr Farage's return to the UK and establish whether Mr Farage was in breach of his quarantine. It is vital that lives are not put at risk by breaches of quarantine." "I am copying this letter to the home secretary as I believe this case illustrates the difficulties that the police and Home Office will have in enforcing the quarantine rules as they are currently set out."
This type of 'gotcha' attack is typical of today's leftist politicians. Unable to debate Nigel Farage's policies or to come up with any type of coherent policies of their own, they resort to childish tricks and ad hominem attacks.
Nigel Farage appeared unfazed by the attack or the prospect of a police visit later tweeting:
