One of the central claims made by supporters of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union was that £350 million per week that the nation was sending to the EU would instead be put toward the National Health Service. On Good Morning Britain today, UK Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage said that claim is untrue.
Tomorrow, the citizenry of the United Kingdom will cast their votes in a general election. If you’re an American, you may have been too busy tenderly rubbing your genitals on a gun to have read much about this. Who’s fighting to lead this grey and unpleasant land onward into its inevitable irrelevancy? And how do we even do elections without an electoral college? Allow me, a Proper Brit, to get you up to speed.
U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage seems to spend half of his time asserting that Ukip is "not a racist party" and the other half apologizing for his party's racism. Ukip's anti-immigrant rhetoric has many critics, but one of the most vocal and most sword-owning of them is Yanek Zylinski, a self-described Polish prince who literally challenged Farage to a duel over the weekend.
