Nigel Farage owns the libs … by gorging on Easter eggs

LONDON — “I have decided to stuff myself with chocolate,” Brexiteer Nigel Farage declared Thursday.

In a pre-Easter message in the Telegraph newspaper, the populist politician launched his latest crusade against the meddling establishment. He’s promising to ignore health warnings and indulge in plenty of chocolate over the long weekend, bureaucrats be damned.

Railing against Andrew Kelso, an NHS doctor who dared to warn Brits to keep chocolate consumption in check, Farage wrote: “Go away, Dr Kelso! I don’t care, and I loathe your patronizing tone.”

“It’s Easter, and let’s enjoy it,” Farage, reaching a crescendo, continued.

“I have not yet decided whether to go to church on Sunday morning to get a Marxist lecture from my Church of England vicar, but I have decided to stuff myself with chocolate, even if it spoils lunch — and upsets all the right people,” the ex-Brexit Party leader concluded.

Chocolate is only the latest flashpoint Britain’s seemingly never-ending culture wars. Senior politicians united last week to condemn a minor change to the colors of a flag on a football shirt.

Kelso, who is the medical director at the NHS Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care Board, sparked debate this week after warning that many Brits simply do not realize the sheer number of calories present in Easter eggs.

“I urge people to enjoy their Easter eggs in moderation and resist the urge to eat a whole egg in one go,” Kelso said, as he highlighted “significant increases in cases of obesity and Type 2 diabetes, as well as tooth decay.”

Tory MP John Hayes — who leads the “Common Sense Group” of Conservative MPs — told GB News that “anything that inhibits the message of Easter is to be viewed upon undesirably.”

“I urge people to eat their Easter eggs with alacrity,” Hayes added.
