If any further proof were needed of Farage's "going native", and his desire to create a career for himself in the EU Institutions he claims to despise, then here it is.
The European Parliament has what are known rather pretentiously as "Questors". These are MEPs who have special responsibility for overseeing the smooth running of the parliament, and in particular for security.
Farage has asked that his new group be given a Questor's office.
What will be next? Co-Presidency of the Parliament?
