Farage, the US public is told, “forced the Conservative party to hold a referendum on European Union membership. In June 2016, Farage was a leading figure in the campaign to leave. This gained him the name ‘Mr Brexit’ by Republican Presidential candidate Donald J Trump, whom he supported at a rally on the campaign trail”. There was more.
“Nigel Farage was one of the very few that predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidential elections and was the first foreign politician to meet the newly elected President in Trump Tower just days after his historic win”. But “In early 2019, he was forced back into Westminster politics in order to stop the Brexit betrayal”.
Now, with an increasing number of those who voted to Leave realising that they were conned, Mr Thirsty has wisely left the country, but he has not escaped the attention of all those voters who had their freedoms removed and their dreams trashed, some of whom have realised that tickets to see The Great Man shooting his mouth off are free.
And so it came to pass: just as with the time when Farage was down to be support act for Combover Crybaby Donald Trump and ended up speaking to an empty car park after the free tickets were snapped up by K-Pop fans, so UK Tweeters have let him know just how grateful they are that he is somewhere else. “Great news everyone, there’s still LOADS of free tickets available for Nigel Farage’s big speaking tour across America” said one.
There was more. A lot more. "For more fun, Nige Farago is doing some speaking appearances in the USA. Tickets are available to book online. Wouldn't it be dreadful if it got booked up by people who had no intention of attending? … Tickets are free. Some people are booking tickets (max 2 per person) and planning not to turn up so he will be speaking to an empty hall. You know what to do!” They certainly did.
Indy100 has now reported that “Free tickets for Nigel Farage’s US tour are being reserved by people with no intention of showing up … numerous people are trolling the Brexiteer by signing up for the free tour, and taking spaces from people who may - for some reason - be interested in what Farage has to say”. The London Economic was not optimistic.
“Apparently, a whole bunch of people are booking tickets to opportunistic grifter Nigel Farage's US speaking tour - but have no intention of going. Shocking behaviour! On a totally unrelated note, here's the link for said tickets … Free (but limited) tickets, anyone can book them, you don't need to confirm or anything. I've booked several for my friends: Edina Clouds, Dave Reckning and Mick Sturbs”. Ho ho very droll.
