Brexiter Nigel Farage strips off on TV. You think, that must be the most embarrassing thing he has done this week?
Well, you would be wrong…
Farage strips off
As Right Said Fred – brothers and covid conspiracy theorists Fred and Richard Fairbrass – sang their hit song ‘I’m too sexy’ on guitar, Nigel Farage smiled and clapped along, what a show, what a night, he must have thought to himself.
Then from nowhere Farage strips off as he approaches the camera.
Could it have been ad hoc?
Was he egged on by a producer?
Or was he caught in a Brexit/Covid conspiracy vortex that left him unable to control his body?
I doubt we will ever know.
Some quite grim reactions to a very grim clip…
What is more embarrassing than that Farage’s strip?
Well, over on Newsnight Nigel Farage told presenter Victoria Derbyshire that Brexit had been a ‘disaster’.
She asked him a ‘general Brexit question’ before outlining just how badly the UK economy was tanking right now.
Nigel Farage said the UK had not benefitted from Brexit economically, lambasted UK politicians for being “as useless as the commissioners” in Brussels
He then accused the government of failing to control Britain’s borders.
“I mean, what Brexit’s proved, I’m afraid, is that our politicians are about as useless as the commissioners in Brussels were,” he added. “We’ve mismanaged this totally, and if you look at simple things…such as takeovers, such as corporation tax, we are driving business away from our country.
“Arguably, now we’re back in control, we’re regulating our own businesses even more than they were as EU members. Brexit has failed.”
The man himself took no blame for the problems the UK now faces outside of the EU, of course.
Quite Quite insane
Harsh or fair?
