Nigel Farage’s class war

He's not motivated by winning. He's trying to mess with David Cameron's head

A man wearing a mask depicting leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage dangles puppet representing Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister David Cameron during a Labour stunt outside the venue of the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham in central England on September 29, 2014 on day two of the conference. Britain's ruling Conservative party will announce plans to scrap an inheritance tax, as it sets out economic policies aimed at wooing voters ahead of a general election next May.
