Latest outpourings from Farage...

If that happens, if that happens, much as I’m enjoying myself - I love doing the LBC talkshow four nights a week, I enjoy my trips to the States, with Trump and the White House and everything else, I’m enjoying my life - but if they don’t deliver this Brexit that I’ve spent 25 years of my life working for, then I will be forced to don khaki, pick up a rifle and hit the the front line.

Isn't this inciting a riot, or something like it?

Mr Farage says he was speaking metaphorically.

Some offences are defined not by the intent of the offender, but how it is taken by the recipient.

What in that makes you predict a riot?

The reaction to it on the pro-brexit pages. They're not very sensible.

It could be he was considering enlisting?

His words are no more provocative than the Kaiser Chiefs lyrics, that atticus was referring to

Much as I admire Farage even I do not expect him to take up arms, he's a politician. His job is to get other people killed, not that he'll ever be as good at it as Labour's Tony Bliar.

He couldn't pull off Khaki. Never in a million years.

If the EDL or Britain First (they have more of a knuckle dragging following) said the same thing, they'd be donning their "taking our country back" polyester clothing and going tats out!

Speaking metaphorically or not - we're reading this in a semi-decent environment.
Post that link on a board where members of the above parties hang out - or even where those who publicly strongly oppose their views, then read the replies.

My answer; maybe.
