Snowflake: Nigel Farage furious over TV show assassinating 'Neil Fromage'

The Brexit party leader has slammed Channel 4 for their ‘totally sick’ show Year of the Rabbit, in which a right-wing campaigner gets shot in the head

Nigel Farage has spoken out against Channel 4 for a “totally sick” scene in the comedy Year of The Rabbit that shows a right-wing campaigner named Neil Fromage being shot in the head.

The Brexit party leader called the moment in the Matt Berry-starring spoof show, in which the character of Fromage is killed while giving an anti-immigration speech, “totally sick and frankly irresponsible”.

Speaking to the Daily Star on Sunday, Farage went on to attack the network: “With Channel 4, we have reached a point where they are so partisan politically in everything they do that they now consistently go beyond what’s acceptable.”

The comedy about a policeman romping swearily around rat-ridden Victorian London was described by the Guardian review as “a heady mix of period detail, gleeful anachronism and baroque profanity”.

In the assassination scene, Fromage takes to a soapbox and says: “Immigrants infest this city they do … like a cancer. And if they take over, you can be sure of one thing.” “Far better restaurants?” a character in the crowd interjects. “Blood, blood, blood.”

Farage’s outrage comes weeks after his fury at comedian Jo Brand, who made a gag on BBC Radio 4 show Heresy about the recent incident at which a milkshake was thrown over him: “Why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?” The BBC said Brand’s jokes were “deliberately provocative”, as the show’s title suggests.
