The scene may have conformed to Nigel Farage's key political rallying cry but that didn't make the encounter any less awkward.
The Ukip leader was visiting a factory in Clacton, Essex, when he came across 62-year-old Ivan Loncsarevity, a Hungarian migrant worker. As Farage watched Loncsarevity, a reporter asked the Hungarian whether he was a Ukip supporter.
Loncsarevity remained silent and simply smiled back, while Farage just laughed. It later emerged Loncsarevity probably did not understand the question due to his limited English. Farage and the Ukip MP for Clacton, Douglas Carswell, carried on watching Loncsarevity work away in silence.
Afterwards, Loncsarevity admitted to journalists that he did "not speak English very well." His colleagues said that he was "relatively low-skilled" and that he had lived in Colchester for five years.
Farage was later asked whether people like Loncsarevity should remain working in the UK. The Ukip leader and South Thanet hopeful emphasised that Ukip policies would not mean Loncsarevity would be sent home as they did not believe in applying migration rules "retrospectively".
"One of the big problems that we've got in engineering is a real shortage of young people studying engineering to go into trades such as this, which is regrettable.
Ukip's confusing policies
Ukip's confusing policies
1/6 Deport migrants
Ukip MP Mark Reckless suggested he would deport existing EU migrants, a policy Nigel Farage rejected out of hand.
2/6 US-style NHS
Farage was caught on film in 2012 saying healthcare headed towards insurance-based system, though he has since said he would keep it free at the point of use.
3/6 Handbag tax
Ukip Economy spokesman Patrick O'Flynn said he would introduce a tax on high-price items like shoes, Nigel Farage disowned this idea.
4/6 Same-sex couple adoption
Ukip candidate Winston McKenzie likened adoption by same-sex couples to "child abuse", but the party rejects that view.
5/6 Gay marriage?
In early 2014 Ukip released a statement saying it would review its gay marriage policy, but later said that was an error.
6/6 Sex education u-turn
Nigel Farage told Leaders Live that he backed sex education for under-11s but later admitted that is not Ukip policy.
"If there's no British person trained to do that job, then that says more about us than them."
Due to his limited English, Loncsarevity could not inform reporters what it was like to meet the famed Farage.
