C4’s brilliant takedown of Nigel Farage and his ‘little plane’ will have you cheering
It’s not often we see Nigel Farage on TV and smile, but it’s not often he’s skewered quite so beautifully as he was on Channel 4 News.
Asked by C4’s Matt Frei how he had managed to get from London to Strasbourg so quickly, the former UKIP leader started by trying to laugh it off and ended, well, have a watch for yourself.

Just beautifully done, almost makes the whole thing worthwhile. Kind of.
This is amazing. Farage cornered into having to admit that he travels on private planes while railing against the elite. https://t.co/9SwGn35aBZ

"I can't really win, can I?" – Too true, is it 7 attempts for Parliament Nige?

I thought he was claiming to be broke a while back?
Personally, think he should have saved the money spent on the private jet, got the Eurostar and spent the cash saved on a decent haircut.
That barber shop £5 special makes him like a pound shop fascist.

He can't remember the cost….spoken like a true elite

So that anti-elitist Nigel Farage can't even remember how much his private plane cost? Guess the sum was insignificant to him… https://t.co/hwq1B26hK4
