Nigel Farage Criticises Pupils For Parody Where "Nicolas Fromage" Kicks Immigrants Away From England

The further you kick the immigrant, the higher your racism rating.

Five schoolchildren have created an app where users play a character called Nicolas Fromage and have to kick immigrants off the cliffs of Dover.

The game was made by schoolchildren at Canterbury Academy and is called UKIK. It can be downloaded for free on Android devices.

And UKIP leader Nigel Farage is not happy. He said the game is "risible and in many ways pathetic. I think I’m quite well known for having a sense of humour.

"I’m a public figure and of course people are going to have views. But elements of this game appear to cross the line."

The further you kick the immigrant, the higher your "racism" rating.

The full message reads:

Dear Great Britain,

Do foreign voices on trains scare you? Can you handle a European living next door? Does your wife refuse to clean behind the fridge? Do you think women are too stupid to win a game of chess or have a top level job?

If you are feeling irrational and want to live in a right wing hell hole then vote Ukik this May. These people might improve our economy, contribute to our culture and make Britain great but they are different to us so let's kick them all out!

The message mocks statements previously made by UKIP leader Nigel Farage, such as when he said he felt "awkward" when he heard foreign language on trains and that he would be "concerned" if a group of Romanians moved in next door to him.

The game, created by 18-year-olds John Brown, James Dupreez, Fraser Richardson, John Hutchinson, and Joe Brown, has the backing of the Canterbury Academy principal Phil Karnavas.

The game developers say they want to “make a mockery of extremist views" in a disclaimer message when users open the game.

Karnavas said: "It’s certainly topical and should stimulate discussion about political issues amongst young people – something we are constantly told is important.

"But, really as political satire it is just a bit of fun. Many politicians don’t need help to make themselves look daft, or to say very silly things, but they should at least have the ability to laugh at themselves.

"This game may be a bit ‘edgy’ but I suspect it will not bring the British political system crashing down!"
