Nigel Farage says another IRA slogan in latest Cameo trick

Nigel Farage records another IRA Cameo message

Farage has been ‘fooled’ yet again

Nigel Farage has once again been duped on the popular video message service Cameo as he filmed a birthday greeting with a hidden IRA message.

Farage, 57, has been making an extra few quid on the popular personalised video service and despite only joining in March of this year, looks to have already restarted his career somewhat following his employment with GB News.

However, whether knowingly or not, much of his Cameo content has been dominated by people having him read cryptic messages he seemingly doesn’t know the true meaning of. While some are tamer than others, his latest gaffe involves him saying “tiocfaidh ar la” (pronounced ‘chuck-ar-la’), which is a phrase used by the Irish Republic Army and means “our day will come”.

Farage presumably had no knowledge of this phrase and believed it to be some location in Brighton where one “Gerard” led “his team” for many years (Gerard perhaps being a slight nod to Gerry Adams also).

He also appeared to fall for a similar albeit much more obvious prank earlier this month when he was filmed saying “Up the RA”, a very common slogan used among the nationalist group. Naturally, the clip caused a fair amount of controversy and concern.

He later went on to be grilled by Irish presenter Claire Byrne on her political discussion show for the comment, who blasted the rampant Eurosceptic for his views on their EU governance, stating “you haven’t a clue”:

Aside from his lecturing on Anglo-Irish relations and answering to European commissioners, Byrne cited the video – which Farage charged the recipient £87 for – and while acknowledging he had apologised, suggested: “Don’t try and lecture the Irish people about the culture and history and precarious nature of peace on this island.”

While there are no doubt a number of secret messages that are going to go unnoticed, with so many hoodwinks under his belt at this point, is there not a case to suggest that he probably has some inkling of what is going on – or, alternatively, is it irresponsible to allow him to keep recording them when he has no idea or, at the very least, no regard for what he is being told to say?
