The ‘Bad Boys of Brexit’ are called that because they called themselves that, and there’s nothing cooler than coming up with your own nickname.
Another thing they’ve decided to do for themselves is prove they didn’t collude with Russia. Namely by interrogating themselves on Nigel Farage’s LBC radio show.
The British media, ladies and gentlemen
The conversation was held between Nigel Farage, Arron Banks, and Andy Wigmore:
FARAGE: So – the big question on everyone’s mind is this: did we do it?
WIGMORE: No we didn’t.
FARAGE: Well, that’s that sorted. What else would you like to talk about?
BANKS: I think it’s important everyone knows the Remainiacs are only saying we colluded with Russia because they hacked the emails we were hiding .
WIGMORE: Not ‘hiding’, Arron.
BANKS: Oh yeah. I mean those emails we were not hiding. But anyway, if you don’t wanna hear about us colluding with Russians, maybe don’t hack our emails, yeah?
WIGMORE: Not ‘colluding’, Arron.
BANKS: Oh yeah. I meant not colluding.
FARAGE: So in summary, would you agree we’re being subjected to a witch-hunt?
BANKS: Definitely. Just let the witches get on with it – that’s what I say.
WIGMORE: No, Arron, the point of the saying is to imply the person conducting the witch-hunt has given into baseless paranoia.
BANKS: Wasn’t Baseless Paranoia the name of that club they took us to in Siberia?
WIGMORE: *PUTS HEAD IN HANDS*
FARAGE: Well, that clears that up. No collusion whatsoever!
For anyone worrying this is pretty dubious journalistic standards, don’t worry, because the Bad Boys may still have to deal with the courts. It’s just that post-Brexit, the justice system will be run by the Daily Express.
