Nigel Farage’s joke about a wine called Corbin turned sour – the only five takedowns you need
There are probably good reasons why a lot of political comedy is left-leaning, and recent attempts by the Conservatives to be funny have highlighted one of them, which is that the right just isn’t any good at it. Brexit Party CEO, or whatever they call him, Nigel Farage added weight to that argument with this joke about Jeremy Corbyn.

Unfortunately for him, it was just material for Twitter to use at his expense.

Times diarist, Patrick Kidd had a reality check on the wine review, with a burn for good measure.
A decent joke, I suppose, but Decanter calls the 2015 Chateau Corbin the vineyard's finest year, "poised and precise, really elegant" and not due to hit its best for another three years. Unless Farage was talking about himself. https://t.co/FDCP9nRlGx
