Letter: Farage is not a good replacement for Lord Frost

Farage, the son of a stockbroker, is a former City trader and has failed seven times to become an MP, and has quit politics several times.

I feel Farage, described as a pound shop Enoch Powell, has done more damage to British politics than anyone in living memory.
