Although Nigel Farage referred to his new political rival Al Murray as the first ‘serious opponent’ he has encountered in South Thanet, not all of Ukip are amused that The Pub Landlord is running for the seat their leader is after.

David Coburn, the Ukip MEP for Scotland, has got himself embroiled in a Twitter spat with the Oxbridge educated comedian, accusing him of ‘mocking the voters of Thanet South’.


The 46-year-old comedian announced he was running on behalf of the Free United Kingdom Party yesterday, bookies have him on 66/1 to win the seat.
