School children, wearing protective goggles, were treated to the rare glimpse of Nigel Farage’s face been obscured in tabloid papers by reports of his own fraudulent UKIP colleagues. Once-in-a-generation does someone come along more inappropriate than Mr. Farage; remarked one child: ‘I looked up to see a massive shadow over the whole of Europe, a thick, grey mass – but I’m told that was the UKIP membership’.
One astrologer explained: ‘Normally, to experience a total Farage Eclipse, the public would need to subscribe to The Guardian. The media darkness peaked at 09:35 GMT, with almost no reference to Mr. Farage’s ‘blokey charm’. Although people were warned not to stare at The Sun for too long, for fear of getting a nipple in the eye’.
