The latest leader of the comedy political party that calls itself UKIP, a group that have had sixty-five different leaders in the last three months, is a Dick Braine. And no, that’s not a cheap insult, it’s actually his real name.
Political commentators everywhere are sniggering uncontrollably and many satirists are said to be thinking of quitting as a result.
One such individual who calls himself Chipchase and writes for popular online comedy site NewsBiscuit said: ‘Well it’s game over, isn’t it? How on earth are we supposed to satirise this guy? What next? I wouldn’t be at all surprised if his first action will be to now appoint a deputy leader called Belle Ende or Hugh Jannockers.’
Meanwhile a spokesman for UKIP commented: ‘This is a little awkward, however we don’t envisage it being an issue by the middle of next week, as by then we will undoubtedly have had a least another two leadership elections and two new leaders, and so long as Chit Forebrains doesn’t win the second then this will all have blown over.
