Nigel Farage, who likes a tweet almost as much as he likes a drink, revealed on Twitter today that was enjoying a pint after being off the beer for January.
He didn’t let the grass grow under his feet posting at five minutes past midnight “As of this moment I’m returning as a fully paid up member of the drinking classes! #dryjanuary #DryJanuaryIsOver”.
It remains to be seen whether his campaigning style will alter now that he is back on the sauce. “I am very lucky – I am a drinker, often quite a steady one. I am a boozer, but I am not an alcoholic. And that is the point”.
