This glorious Nigel Farage takedown wins our burn of the week
Nigel Farage isn’t happy that Mark Carney has had his tenure as governor of the Bank of England extended to see the country beyond the date it will (supposedly) leave the EU.
Truly appalling decision to extend Mark Carney’s term at the Bank of England. He is a Remainer, how can we take this government seriously?

B) Wait, are you saying that there are key decision maker in the UK who aren't directly elected?

And this was the winner.
“How can we take seriously man with economics degree from Harvard, 13 years with Goldman Sachs, ministerial experience in the Canadian Gov’t, 5-year Governor of Bank of Canada and 5-year Governor of BoE?” Asks man beaten in election by candidate dressed as dolphin.
