The Home Office has announced that recorded incidents of racially motivated attacks across the country dip substantially during the radio phone-in show hosted by former UKIP leader, Nigel Farage on LBC.
Farage, who only began his 7.00pm to 9.00pm stint behind the microphone on Monday, gave a cautious welcome to the statistics last night.
He explained, “Obviously, it’s fairly good news that fewer foreigners are being assaulted during the show, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.
“After all, if there were no foreigners at all there’d be even less chance of them bringing disorder to Britain’s streets in the first place.”
The widely-held explanation for the phenomena is that most of Britain’s bigoted racists are staying indoors listening to the show and are therefore not roaming the streets attacking people from other countries.
This theory is supported by the fact that, as soon as Farage’s show finishes, the incidents of race hate crime increase alarmingly.
A Home Office spokesman said, “I suppose it’s a bit like the FA Cup Final when everyone piles out into the street for a kickabout after the final whistle.”
