So, Nigel Farage didn't quite win in South Thanet.

But now that he's (sort of) resigned as UKIP leader, let's not forget the good times we had.

1. Like when he constantly reminded you that all your problems could be solved with a pint or two.

2. Or three.

3. Basically until you're shit-faced.

4. How about when LBC's James O'Brien gave him a pretty rough time, and he looked like he needed a cuddle?

5. Or when he got chased down the street by a man dressed as Jesus Christ.


6. Or when he was seeking some of those sweet retweets...

Can anyone name what's behind me in this picture?

7. Only to end up getting severely rinsed.

8. Or when he blamed being stuck in traffic on immigrants.

9. Or the fact that his face looked like so many random things.

10. How about when he dropped those subtle reminders to keep it real?


11. Although it's probably not a good idea to insult your audience on live TV.


12. How about when he claimed more than 500 people showed up at his impromptu election rally?

What a welcome from over 500 people turning out in the rain to campaign today in South Thanet! #PeoplesArmy #UKIP

13. Although it was a little less than that.

Online Pedant Quite Funny Shocka. #UKIP

14. Or when he called the former president of the European Council a "damp rag" and gave zero fucks about it.

15. Don't forget his valiant defence of the white cliffs of Dover, presumably to scare off some immigrants.

16. Although none of them took his scary face seriously.

17. Remember when he compared himself to Mahatma Gandhi at a post-election rally?

18. Or when he tried to smoke a cigar like Jay Z?

19. On the plus side, his fedora game could give George Galloway a run for his money.
