Nigel Farage receives 'honorary knighthood' live on TV

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage received an unexpected honour at the end of his latest appearance on 'Sam Delaney’s News Thing' on RT UK.

Following an interview in which he addressed his feud with UKIP’s lone MP Douglas Carswell, Farage was given the honour of being the first ever recipient of a ‘News Thing Knighthood’ from a young royal in the acknowledgement that he’s unlikely to be receiving any other honours in the near future.

After the ceremony, the atmosphere briefly threatened to become more tense when her diminutive majesty commented, “my mummy says you hate foreigners”, but ‘Sir’ Nigel kept the mood celebratory with a quick retort: “the Queen has to be non-political.”
