Nigel Farage struggled to finish a crossword puzzle in a timely manner last night – and laid the blame squarely on immigrants.
“The white boxes are the only ones that really do anything, but they’re being held back by all the blacks”, insisted the UKIP leader.
“They just clutter the place up, they don’t enhance this game at all. It’s about time we stopped letting them in, give the white boxes a bit of room to breathe. We need to start with a clean sheet of paper.”
Farage’s troubles began when he got to the clue for 7 across, which read ‘Name for a continent that contains France, Germany and Great Britain (6)’.
“It started with ‘E’and had an ‘R’ near the middle, but ‘Everything that’s bloody wrong with the world’ didn’t quite fit”, said Farage.
“And the reason for that was a black square, just sitting there in the way. This wouldn’t have happened in the ’60s in the Britain I grew up in, I can tell you.”
“I’d have got my Namibian wet-nurse to fill it in for me.”
