Nigel Farage told people to ignore the World Health Organization – 11 sick burns
The World Health Organization is the United Nations agency that promotes public health, performing and collating the best research, carrying out vaccination drives and generally looking out for people. They recently posted a celebratory tweet about a development at the Vatican.

Great news for the people who work in and around the Vatican, bad news for *checks notes* Nigel Farage.
The World Health Organisation is just another club of ‘clever people’ who want to bully and tell us what to do. Ignore. https://t.co/UM6IwirmY0

Did he… Did he just pick a fight with THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION?!

It’s the old “We’ve had enough of experts” rhetoric, so prominent during the Leave campaign, so we shouldn’t be surprised. Some people were very much in favour of Nigel Farage ignoring medical advice.
You keep on smoking, Nigel, don’t listen to them https://t.co/Af78FUr58G

Definitely ignore, Nige. Smoke more and tear those snowflake filters off. https://t.co/WWTxEXVbjX

Some pointed out why he should pay better attention.
They eradicated smallpox, Nigel. https://t.co/Tyh3rKr9pw

1. WHO is not banning it is the Vatican. You want the right to smoke fags in church?
2. WHO not a club but a world wide organisation of experts.
3. The term ‘clever people’ is only a pejorative if you are fearfully stupid.
4. You are a shit stirring cunt.

The World Heath Organisation oversaw the eradication of smallpox, a disease which killed over two million people a year and left millions more blind or disabled.

"Don't do that, you'll literally die"
"BLOODY LIBERAL ELITE TELLING ME WHAT TO DO"
"From cancer, here are the stats"
"INTELLECTUAL BULLIES, SICK OF EXPERTS"

Most thick people will probably feel that way, yes.

Twitter user Christopher C noticed the irony of a man telling people they should listen to him when he tells them not to listen to someone.
“Dont listen to experts on the things they have expertise on. Instead listen to bullshit and lies from me on things i clearly have not a fucking scooby about”
