An appropriately-timed piece of pixilation failure took place in Salford yesterday. The UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, was appearing on the BBC Breakfast programme in Media City Salford when a technical glitch caused a black pixel to appear under Farage’s nose giving him a Hitler-style toothbrush moustache.
Politics imitating art - this could have
come straight from a scene in Father Ted
Appositely the glitch took place just as Farage was denying revelations from one of his former teachers at Dulwich College that the young Nigel sang Nazi marching songs and was even then considered a ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’ by staff.
Herr Fuhrer Farage was reported to have no comment to make at this moment; and one of his SS press officers said a statement would be forthcoming from his bunker at a more appropriate time.
