Making Plans for Nigel

From The Independent

The Ukip leader Nigel Farage has blamed the fact that he missed a paid-for party event in Wales on immigrants.

In an appearance on BBC’s Sunday Politics Wales, Mr Farage was accused of a lack of professionalism after he failed to make it to a “Meet Nigel Farage” evening in Port Talbot for which about 100 people paid £25 each.

But the party leader said that traffic on the M4 was to blame for his lateness – and put that down to “the population going through the roof”.

He said: “It took me six hours and 15 minutes to get here - it should have taken three-and-a-half to four.

Bloody immigrants. Coming over here, not having the decency to point Nigel at the warning on Google Maps that "These directions are for planning purposes only. You may find that construction projects, traffic, weather, or other events may cause conditions to differ from the map results, and you should plan your route accordingly. You must obey all signs or notices regarding your route."

It's been like that since I can remember (about 20 years). If I had to get to Port Talbot on a Friday night out of London I'd either leave before 3pm to avoid the rush or get a train.

"Bloody immigrants, making everything worse and pushing up our house prices."

"Oh, right, so you think that the UK would be a nicer place if there were fewer immigrants?"

"Yes."

"And if somewhere is nicer, do rents go up or go down?"

"Well, normally up, but in the topsy turvy world of UKIP logic, they'd go down."

TS, thanks for proving that NF is an idiot, but not in the way the press are making him out to be.
