Tim Burgess led the trolling of Nigel Farage’s US tour and it’s fabulous
You may – or may not – have noticed that Nigel Farage is off on a ‘comeback’ tour of the US.
Farage will take a break from wishing people happy birthday on Cameo to tour nearly a dozen American states in the hope of ‘energising grassroots activists’.
The good news is his tour has already attracted lots of attention, just not the sort he’d have been hoping for after lots of people – including Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess – noticed that the tickets to the event were free.
So they did this.
And people were only too happy to take him up on it.
Thanks Tim. I just booked two tickets.
I would miss this for the world.

That would be naughty and I don’t approve. 😉
And I’d like to point out that if you want to book tickets there’s a maximum of two per customer. So if you need more than that then you will need multiple email accounts.

And we loved the singer’s follow-up tweet as well.
For balance, anybody who wants to buy Charlatans tickets and not show up is welcome to do so here https://t.co/LydVwwTPIm

He wasn’t the only one more than happy to publicise Farage’s US tour.
Remember that time K-pop fans ruined Trump’s big election rally by booking free tickets they had no intention of ever using?
On a completely unrelated topic, Nigel Farage is offering free tickets to his latest tour…https://t.co/Jy7dpDVJR5
