Nigel Farage has dismissed claims made by one idolising Ukip supporter that he’s been “sent by God” to save Britain from the European Union.

The Ukip leader said during an LBC phone-in on Friday: “I’m not the Messiah, I’m a very naughty boy.”

The borrowed Monty Python phrase was delivered after Farage was played a clip of new Channel 5 documentary Farage Fans and Ukip Lovers.

During the segment, 59-year-old dominatrix Jill, who is also a former nurse, said that he “probably didn’t realise it”, but that Farage had been “sent to protect us against the EU”. She went on to theorise that Brussels aimed to install microchips into everyone in Europe, and would execute those who refused to comply with its wishes.

“God says when an enemy comes against you like a massive flood, I'll send someone to give you some protection,” she said.

“I think Nigel Farage is sent to protect us against the EU, he wants to bring England back to the English people and stop this foreign invasion of our borders.

“What Nigel Farage will do by getting us out of the EU is to stop their plans to microchip our people.

“The EU already has the equipment set up and they have death vans like they have in China, equipped with guillotines.

“They will be sent to houses and work places basically saying receive the microchip or be killed. So off with your head and that's when things start getting unpleasant.”

After listening to the clip, Farage responded: “Jill, I’m sure, is an absolutely delightful woman, but I have to disappoint her. Jill, I’m not the Messiah, I’m a very naughty boy.”

 

Farage's odd denial follows an equally unusual appearance on ITV daytime programme Loose Women, during which he declared that it is a “fact of life” that new mothers may fall “behind the rest of the pack” in the workplace.

“If you're a doctor, a lawyer, a researcher, you're a woman, you have a baby, you take six months or a year off, you come back. You are not disadvantaged at all in that job,” he told the panel.

“But there are other jobs in which if you take six months off and come back you actually find yourself behind the rest of the pack and earning less money. Now that is a fact of life. It's difficult to change that.”
