Bad news for UKIP: Nigel Farage might not survive this election, on the proviso that Janek Żyliński (don’t ask us to say that aloud) is any good at swordfighting.
Żyliński is the son of Captain Andrzej Żyliński, a Polish cavalry officer who led a charge against the Nazis in 1939, subsequently saving the lives of 6,000 Jews.
Żyliński, who lives in Ealing, has released a video announcing the unveiling of a statue of his father in West London – but his statement didn’t stop there.
“I’ve had enough of the discrimination against Polish people in this country,” he says. “The most idiotic example I’ve heard of has been Mr Nigel Farage blaming migrants for traffic jams on the M40.”
This is the part of the video where he brandishes his sword – and no, we’re not talking about his willy.
“Enough is enough, Mr Farage. So what I’d like to do is to challenge you to a duel. I’d like us to meet in Hyde Park one morning, with our swords, and resolve this matter.”
More known for his fags and pints than foils and duelling, Farage seems unlikely to accept the challenge, so the prince suggested an alternative:
“If his sword is a little rusty, we could meet in a studio for a duel of words in the run up to the election.”
