Voters urge UKIP leader to ‘be Nigel Farage more discreetly’ in public


Nigel Farage in public

The public have urged the UKIP leader Nigel Farage to ‘be Nigel Farage more discreetly’ in future, encouraging him to cover himself up with a blanket or maybe sit in the corner when being Farage in public.

The call comes after Farage was asked in a radio interview about his ongoing decision to be Nigel Farage in public places, without apparent consideration of the effect this behaviour has on those around him

Simon Williams, 42, of Strood, said “Farage was all around town a couple of weeks ago, you could barely go into any café or restaurant without him suddenly being whipped out.”

“I didn’t know where to look. I realise Nigel Farage is a naturally occurring thing, but the simple fact is that lots of people find it embarrassing when he just appears out of nowhere.”

“I don’t feel that strongly about it either way myself, but I do know that some people do feel awkward or embarrassed by him spouting his views in public – like the educated, or anyone who’s not had a lobotomy.”

Voter Dave Sprout agreed: “This is just a matter of common sense, isn’t it?”

“I mean, he’s perfectly entitled to his views, but it’s not too difficult for him to spout rubbish in a way that’s not openly ostentatious.”

“In his garden shed, for example, or on a remote island where no-one else has to listen to him.”

“Really what I’m saying that is that, if I’m going to see a tit on display in public, I’d prefer it to be in a baby’s mouth than it being a swivel-eyed lunatic climate-change denier on the loose.”
