Farage Swings For Europe

Sponsored post.

Some say we’re better together and for one week only Nigel Farage is certainly supporting that notion, but for Europe!

In an unexpected turn, notorious Eurosceptic Nigel Farage has joined forces with Paddy Power to back Team Europe (in the Ryder Cup that is).

To show his allegiance, Farage has filmed a mock party political broadcast urging the boys to show those fist-bumping, flag-waving Yanks what us Europeans are really made of once and for all.

With Ryder Cup fever primed to hit Europe with a bang this weekend, Farage has released a rallying cry of support for Team Europe who will be teeing off against Team U S of A, at Gleneagles tomorrow.

The video shows Nige, in the words of 2Unlimited (who coincidentally were No.1 when the yanks last took home a victory over on these shores – 1993 for all you golf boffins), claim that there’s quite literally “no no no no, limit to the talent of this young European team.”

Speaking on the strength of the competition, Farage questions Woods’ excuse as to why he’s a no show for this year’s showdown, “…hurt his back. How did you do that Tiger? Carrying the hopes and dreams of a nation?”

Nigel Farage said, “I’m not the greatest fan of an ever closer union inside Europe, but when it comes to the Ryder Cup we’re better together. I’m urging all my fellow Europeans to get behind Team Europe and send Uncle Sam packing.”

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said “We don’t take sides when it comes to politics but we certainly do when it comes to the Ryder Cup. And when Nigel is coming out for Europe you know the whole continent is behind the team.”

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
