As of this morning, Nigel Farage has hung up his hat and has resigned from his position in Ukip as party leader. Get out the table cloths and start partying in the streets! That’s what we’d like to do, if we didn’t have to work today.
But everyone is still feeling the heat as Farage has fucked everything and not he’s fucked off. The internet is exploding with mixed emotions, but of course them Farage meme’s are still going strong. This is the second time Farage has resigned, lets hope this one is for good.
We’ve put together the most stupidly offensive things Mr. Farage has said over the past few years. Let’s reflect and be glad he can’t fuck up the country any more – although it does seem impossible as it is.
1. In 2014, Nigel Farage turned up late to a UKIP event in Wales, blaming “open-door immigration” for the fact that the M4 is “not as navigable as it used to be”.
2. In the same year, Farage called for laws on firearms to be relaxed. He voiced his opinion on the ban of hand guns saying it was ‘ludicrous’. Farage criticized the law even though it was put into place after the Dunblane massacre. The Dunblane school massacre was one of the deadliest mass murders in UK history, when gunman Thomas Hamilton killed sixteen children and one teacher at Dunblane Primary School near Stirling, Scotland on 13 March 1996, before killing himself.
2014 was a good year to be offensively dispassionate wasn’t it, Nige?
3. Of course, Nigel Farage has his say on the pay gap. He said that he did not believe there was sexual discrimination in the City because women who were “prepared to sacrifice the family life” could do just as well as men. He went on to say that ‘working mothers are worth less than men’.
Ukip MEP Stuart Agnew couldn’t have agreed more when he added: ‘Women don’t have the ambition to get to the top because babies get in the way’.
4. Our old pal Nigey has never been straight to the point about his views on gay marriage. Although he made his point very clear, whilst insisting his reasoning was due to the healthiness of the church when he said:
“I think we are opening up a very big can of worms here, and I think there are some very, very big risks.
“I think the Church of England is going to go through a very difficult and miserable time as it is dragged through the courts in Strasburg. I do not support the idea of same sex marriages, all the while we’re under the auspices of the European Court of Human Rights.”
This is reflected in Ukip’s manifesto which read that it was opposed same-sex marriage legislation because it impinged upon the beliefs of millions of people of faith.
Although this is pretty bad, hats off to Ukip for sacking councillor David Silvester in 2014 after he famously claimed flooding was God’s punishment for same-sex marriage.
This is definitely down to the backlash on Twitter, but Nigel gets that every day and he’s only just resigned (again).
5. Let’s not forget a much more recent uproar he caused with his anti-immigration poster which was similar to Nazi propaganda.
Let’s face it, he knew.
6. And how could anyone forget the multiple speeches he gave recently to the European Parliament. He referred back to him standing up for the working man, whilst offending everybody in the room by stating they have never done a real job in their life.
“I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives, or worked in business, or worked in trade, or indeed ever created a job..”
Thank god that almost every MEP made it very clear they were not phased; Nigel doesn’t represent Britain and he is a nonce who brainwashed the British public with promises he couldn’t keep.
