In a move that has shocked the British political establishment, Nigel Farage is set to be knighted for his “services devoted to annoying liberals.” The announcement was made today by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who praised Farage for his tireless efforts to promote Brexit and stand up to the “woke brigade.”
“Arise, Sir Nigel!” Johnson proclaimed in a press conference. “This honour is long overdue for a man who has done so much to shake up the political elite and give a voice to the people. Nigel has always been a thorn in the side of the liberal establishment, and I’m proud to say that we’re finally giving him the recognition he deserves.”
Farage, who led the UK Independence Party and played a key role in the Brexit campaign, was typically blunt in his response to the news. “It’s about time,” he said. “I’ve been annoying liberals for years, and it’s great to see that the government is finally taking notice.”
The move has been met with mixed reactions from across the political spectrum. Some have praised Farage for his contributions to British politics, while others have criticised the decision to honour a figure known for his controversial views on immigration and race.
But for Farage and his supporters, the knighthood is a welcome sign that their efforts have not gone unnoticed. “This is a victory for common sense and for all those who believe in the values that make Britain great,” Farage said. “I’m honoured to accept this award, and I’ll continue to fight for what I believe in, no matter how much it annoys the left.”
The ceremony is set to take place later this year, with Farage expected to attend dressed in his trademark tweed jacket and a grin that will no doubt annoy liberals everywhere.
