Nigel Farage yells at former IRA commander in yet another viral blunder – but people aren’t amused this time around
Nigel Farage gave yet another cry to the old IRA.
The former UKIP leader recorded a personal message to Tom Barry, a former IRA commander.
In the Cameo video, Mr. Farage wishes Tom Barry his best wishes and a safe trip on his vacation – where he goes ‘tan’.
He said, “Well, hello Tom Barry, it’s Nigel Farage here. Karl put me on you.
“I’m here to wish you my best wishes and a safe journey. Yes indeed, Tom Barry, you and the boys are going on vacation in November, hoping to sunbathe.
“But it can get a little chilly this time of year, but you can always Brexit quickly in Kilmichael when it’s all over.
“Tom, you were born in Kerry, but a proud man from Cork and I want you to have a fantastic holiday in November.
“Enjoy it. Raise a drink or two.”
Mr. Farage uses the celebrity messaging service to send personalized messages to those who request them for a fee.
He currently charges € 86 per video and € 1,290 for commercial calls from his account.
However, people didn’t find the last video as funny as they pointed out that Mr Farage had the final say, paid € 86 per video.
Speaking to Twitter, one user said, “He earns 80 pounds for each of them. It takes a minute to register.
“He makes a huge profit on the Irish thinking they take his ass off.
“Nigel Farage has the last word.
Another said, “Jesus. This probably only increases demand.
In another video posted last month, Mr Farage wished an Australian group the best of luck as they embark on ‘amadán’ fundraising.
The post was said to have been from Garryowen and mentioned “Sean South” in reference to the Wolfe Tones song Sean South from Garryowen.
Mr Farage said: “Good luck to everyone who helped Amadán’s fundraiser on an overnight hike to Amma Mountain in New South Wales until dawn on Friday.
“A truck full of volunteers left Thursday, and the leader of the gang is Sean South and this message is from Garry Owen.”
Previously, he made a video shouting out Gerry Adams, former Sinn Fein chief, and referred to Brighton where an IRA bomb targeted UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
In the video he said: “They want to wish you a very happy 71st birthday and they look forward to seeing you and some of the old team again at tiocfaidh ár lá in Brighton.
“I had the whole story. You were the team leader there for many years. Now they want to wish you late – because we kind of missed it by a few days – but a 71st belated birthday and they hope you ‘I take a very happy retirement. Like me Gérard, enjoy well. “
In another video, Mr Farage says he was “rigged” to end a video saying “on top of the RA”.
