Ukik


(Brian Milne) #1

For your amusement folk there is a phone app made by a group of sixth formers from Canterbury Academy that features a character called Nicholas Fromage kicking immigrants off the white cliffs of Dover. It has been criticised by the Ukip leader, Nigel Farage.

Nigel Farage said it was “risible and pathetic” and that it had “crossed the line”, despite saying he welcomed the opinions of young people. Whereas the young game developers have parodied him: A letter from Nicholas Fromage claims he represents “fruitcakes and loonies everywhere”, the app includes the following questions: “Do foreign voices on trains scare you?" "Can you handle a European living next door?" “Does your wife refuse to clean behind the fridge?" "Do you think women are too stupid to win a game of chess or have a top-level job?" Then says: “If you are feeling irrational and want to live in a rightwing hell hole then vote Ukik this May."


These people who wish to rock our boat, well it is a bit hard to do that to a continent, but you know what I mean, are finding this not at all funny. However, ultimately you have to hand it to the school students who are proving how politically aware and full of humour they are and, it would appear, kippers by and large are not in tune with the real world as some of the young people see it.

It seems that he cannot accept a bit of fun! Obviously one of those who is good at dishing it out, but not very good at accepting the reply.
