A ridiculous statement. He’s lost 7 times.
7 times. And never won once.
And of course people have rightly been taking the piss. Here’s the best bits.

Lost, Defeated, Beaten, Deprived. Lost, Defeated, Beaten, Skived.@TwopTwips

But as says @Grayinglasgow says “Nigel Farage will not stand as a candidate in #GE17. He doesn’t need to anymore. The Tories are doing Ukip’s work for them now.”
