UKIP Leader Nigel Farage Debates Russell Brand on Immigration in U.K.
Russell Brand Calls Nigel Farage 'A Poundshop Enoch Powell' On Question Time (The Huffington Post)
Russell Brand has called Nigel Farage "a poundshop Enoch Powell" in an eagerly-anticipated Question Time dustup between the pair.
The controversial comedian said the controversial Ukip leader was "not a cartoon character" and compared him to the 1960s politician who famously said immigration would bring "rivers of blood" to Britain.
It was a feisty exchange between two figures both making in-roads into mainstream British politics that prompted Boy George to call it the best edition of Question Time ever.
