Ukip leader’s fleet drenches rock star’s boat blaring out The In Crowd as campaign stunt on EU fishing policy turns to mayhem.
The Brexit battle took to the waves on Wednesday as Nigel Farage and Bob Geldof commandeered rival Thames cruiser boats for a campaign stunt about EU fishing policy that quickly turned to mayhem.
In what at times resembled a naval battle – rival leave and remain fleets skippered in spirit by the Ukip leader and the rock star fundraiser skirmished on the fast flowing river between Tower Bridge and the Palace of Westminster.
Before it was over Farage’s flotilla of angry trawlermen campaigning for leave had drenched Geldof’s boat with hoses and angrily boarded it midstream to the dismay of the river authorities.
Geldof’s boat almost shredded the eardrums of those on Farage’s vessel with a high decibel blast of 60s pop music;
Geldof called Farage ‘a fraud’ and flicked him the V sign.
(ed:..i liked the one-liner from geldorf where he bellows @ farage about how farage was a fisheries-commissioner in the eu for britain..and attended one out of 43 scheduled meetings during his time in the job..
..clearly just another grifter..that farage..
..there’s a lot of it about..eh..?..)
