Nigel Farage presents himself as the beery scourge of the humourless left. The reality is that he and his party are extraordinarily thin-skinned and cannot stand the faintest hint of mockery when it is aimed at them.
Take David Coburn, who apparently is a Ukip MEP, and his campaign to have the @Trumpton_UKIP account removed by Twitter.
The good news is that his foolishness has helped to win that account more followers.
And you have to feel sorry for Ukip because of this lack of a sense of humour.
As Jeffrey Archer once said to Dame Edna Everage, "The most important thing is to be able to laugh at yourself."
"Yes, Jeffrey," Dame Edna replied, "You’d have to do that. Otherwise you’d be missing the joke of the century."
another fake account has emerged @Trumpton_UKIP - please block/report
