Nigel Farage Was Chased Down The Street By A Man Dressed As Jesus

Can you tell the difference between them?

One of these men believes he is the son of God, brought to earth to guide the people towards redemption. The other is a bloke pretending to be Jesus.


UKIP leader Nigel Farage was ambushed outside LBC's London studios on Friday morning by a man in a shawl called Kevin Lee Light, who prefers to go under the moniker "Jesus of Hollywood".

The American from Los Angeles makes a career as a professional Jesus impersonator. We're pretty sure his job involves about 12 different levels of blasphemy.

Farage didn't want to know.


Earlier this week Winston McKenzie, UKIP's now-suspended candidate for Croydon North, compared Farage to the son of God: "Jesus was one man, we’re his army. Farage is one man, and we’re his army and that’s what it’s all about."

Farage's ever-unflappable aides brushed the episode off.


Jesus of Hollywood has been flown over by PR agency Mother to harass Farage for no immediately discernible reason.
