When Nigel Farage Was Mistaken for the Russian PM

Appearing on Have I Got News for You Nigel Farage claimed that he has never sat for a portrait. As revealed in yesterday’s Sun Guido can confirm this to be true, but only thanks to a technicality. When the European Parliament commissioned a series portraits to be painted of leading MEPs, the artist brought in to do the job was left somewhat confused as to who exactly the UKIP leader was. Visitors to the grand opening of his exhibition in Brussels were therefore greatly amused when the painting above Farage’s name showed the face of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Unsurprisingly Nigel decided against hanging it up on his wall and bestowed it to a party activist instead. Perhaps he’s not so keen on the Russians after all.
