JIM Davidson’s 2014 victory in Celebrity Big Brother was the first sign of the rise of far-right populism, experts have confirmed.
The Institute for Studies said Davidson winning the reality TV show was ignored by western governments who did not understand the significance.
Professor Henry Bribaker said: “We can now see that Davidson’s victory was a dry run for the Brexit vote.
“But in this case, people actually knew who and what they were voting for.”
He added: “The fact that the British public would spend even a penny making a phone call to vote for Jim Davidson should have been an obvious sign that people weren’t very happy.
“And he’s an OBE, so what does that fucking tell you?”
