Guido is off to the pub for the launch of ‘Following Farage‘ by Owen Bennett, which includes such gems as the time the UKIP leader was involved in a coke and hooker shock:
When asked by a friendly American who recognised him in Manhattan, “here, you want some coke?”, Farage replied: “No, no, no, I can’t do any of that”.
The gentleman replied: “OK, tell me your room number, I’m going to send my girl Luscious up to your room!”, to which Nige wisely insisted: “‘No, no, no, I’m OK without Luscious, thanks!”
It also has sit down interviews with Godfrey Bloom, Janice Atkinson and Nige himself, so makes fun holiday reading for ‘Kippers. Its author is truly this generation’s Owen Bennett.
Incidentally, mischevous rumours are going around that UKIP politicians and staff “are on a three line whip” not to attend, though a UKIP source politely insists “everyone’s busy”. At least Owen will be able to pay for a round now…
