Nigel Farage was unable to find any fuel and got entirely the responses he deserved
Spare a thought – only kidding – for former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who’s been unable to fill his car with petrol because of the fuel shortage widely attributed to a variety of factors including – you guessed it – Brexit.
And then the GB News presenter’s day got even worse, he told Twitter.

And while fuel might be in short supply, there was plenty of mockery to go round on Twitter. Here are our favourite things people said in response.

Oh my god what a terrible thing to happen. It’s at times like this that you realise what is most precious in life. Was the van OK?

Maybe it was a fishmonger van.

Maybe he was on his way to the airport.
