Nigel Farage and Joey Essex made an unlikely couple as the two men of little substance put the world to rights on a fishing boat. In Grimsby. Like you do.
The self-made working-class voice of a generation met with the politician as part of a television programme he is currently filming about the forthcoming general election.
The UKIP leader explained to Essex that scenes in the Humberside fishing town were “symbolic of what’s gone wrong” with the country.
Presumably he was referring to the leader of a worryingly successful right-wing party meeting with the famously clueless star of a reality show.
Farage reiterated what most of the nation already knew by standing next to a ‘CAUTION: SLIPPERY’ sign as he negotiated the empty vessel, also known as Joey.
It is unclear why such an established figure would agree to take part in the cheap publicity stunt with such an ignorant airhead, especially as TOWIE is so hot right now.
