The Friday Joke - 9/12/2014 - Nigel Farage UKIP Special

So you think UKIP are quintessentially English? You think that Nigel Farage exemplifies everything that put the Great In Britain? You think UKIP is the answer to all those funny foreigners and that we can soon all be watching cricket on the village green whilst supping warm bitter and puffing on our fags? Extensive research into Mr Farage's family tree has found out that he is in fact the descendent of an Italian ! Just check out this quote from his long lost ancestor !

"The Budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome will become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero , 55 BC

 However whilst our Nige may be rather keen on his ancestory, we are not so sure that it would be mutual
 “Politicians are not born; they are excreted.” ― Cicero, 55 BC Have a lovely weekend

So Rog, you have joined the ranks of the political classes that just don’t understand why UKIP is rising in the polls. Nigel Farage’s ancestry is as irrelevant as Ed Milliband’s. It’s irrelevant that there are some members of his party who have quite nasty and horrible views. Labour, Tories and LibDems also have rotten apples in their ranks. UKIP could say that they will reintroduce the ancient Egyptian policy of the slaying of the first born and people will still vote for them. Until all these clever and highly paid election gurus understand why, the mudslinging will not have any adverse effect on UKIP.

Erm David, its a joke. I have no idea what Nigel Farage's ancestry is. I used Cicero's first quote as it seemed to reflect Farages views. I used the second as a couterposition as Farage is a politician. That is called a punchline. guess you havent done much standup comedy.
