Professor Rob Ford, an expert in the radical right at Britain’s University of Manchester, said Farage could well be a useful conduit into a Trump White House.

“There’s a clear personal connection there, and Trump seems to be the kind of guy who values those kind of relationships,” he said.

However, Ford doubted if the offer of helping the government was serious.

“That was classic Farage. It enables him to show off his friendship and wind up the kind of people in the Conservative party who annoy him,” he said.
