Nigel Farage’s week has been dominated by Jesus
Christmas is nearly upon us and though sadly most forget the true meaning of this celebration, Nigel Farage has been reminded of just that twice in recent days.
After leaving the LBC radio station in Central London on Friday morning, Mr Farage was pursued by an American professional Jesus impersonator named Kevin Lee Light (AKA “Jesus of Hollywood”). Whilst most would have taken this encounter for what it was, the politician failed to see the funny side and stormed off.
Designed as a festive stunt by Light’s PR representatives, the UKIP leader’s reaction was almost certainly linked to the fact that just days earlier one of the party’s candidates, Winston McKenzie, had compared Farage to Jesus.
McKenzie, the party’s Commonwealth spokesman and UKIP PPC for Lambeth and North Croydon, commented:
“Jesus was one man, we’re his army. Farage is one man, and we’re his army and that’s what it’s all about. Everywhere he goes, it doesn’t matter what he says or does – he gets away with it”.
Given the many recent gaffes by Farage and his ‘army’ in recent weeks, UKIP certainly could do with divine intervention. Instead, all he got from Jesus of Hollywood was one very big thumbs down.
