Nigel Farage earned a decent amount of money as an MEP – especially as he rarely did any work. That could be coming to an end soon, which means Farage needs a new gig to keep him in the public eye. This is why he’s launching the Keep Farage Employed Party (KUNT).

The Farage façade
Farage left UKIP when the party became more interested in appealing to far-right YouTube shitheads than campaigning for Brexit.

According to someone close to him, Farage said:
Who’s going to donate to a bunch of sad, middle-aged wankers pretending to know what a Pew-Die-Pie is?
As Farage needs money to fund his addiction to tweed, he needed a new gig, and fast.

This is why he founded KUNT – a party which will:
- Fight for MEGA-BREXIT.
- Be like UKIP was before teenagers ruined it.
- Put Farage on every single BBC political programme – even if he has to run back and forth between sets.
The party is proving popular with angry men who have more money than sense. They particularly enjoyed an advert which featured Farage singing ‘We’re Gammon’ to the tune of Bob Marley’s Jammin’.
“We’re gammon,” he sung. “And I hope you like gammon too. We’re gammon, we’re gammon, we’re gammon, we’re gammon…”
