Nigel Farage giving up drinking is nothing other than an orchestrated publicity stunt
There’s nothing wrong with deciding to cut back on the drink but Nigel Farage and others who’ve decided to have a “dry January” are as sanctimonious as those who took to Facebook on New Year’s Day to announce their fanciful resolutions for 2015.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Farage, who is well known for his love of being pictured drinking alcohol, commented:
“It was completely impromptu. I woke up one morning and thought ‘You know what, I just don’t fancy a drink’. I am very lucky – I am a drinker, often quite a steady one. I am a boozer, but I am not an alcoholic. And that is the point”.
“People say ‘oh my God how are you going to manage’. Do you know what? Quite easily actually”.
“It is the working hours that kill me – not the boozing and it is going to be busy 122 days [until the election]”.
It is our view that this is nothing other than a publicity stunt in the run up to what will be Farage’s biggest electoral test yet. After his disastrous appearance getting merry with Gogglebox’s Dominic and Stephanie Parker last year, this opportunist politician has plainly been advised that he needs to clean up his act.
We urge the voting public to not to pander to this nonsense. Someone, please, just get Nigel Farage a pint.
