Brighton MP and David Cameron mock UKIP and its Shipping Forecast during PMQs
12:53pm Wednesday 22nd January 2014 in News
Brighton Kemptown MP Simon Kirby poked fun at Nigel Farage by referencing a viral fake UKIP Shipping Forecast during today's Prime Minister's Question Time.
The satirical forecast mocks the party's now-suspended councillor David Silvester's claim that the recent UK storms were caused by gay marriage.
The Radio 4 style skit says: "There are warnings of gays in Viking, Forties, southeast Iceland and Bongo Bongo land."
Today, Mr Kirby asked David Cameron: "I'm very proud to represent a large gay community . . . would you agree Brighton is nearly always sunny?"
Mr Cameron replied that he agreed that Brighton has a unique micro climate, and suggested we should get a place on the shipping forecast between Dover and Wight every morning.
David Silvester, a town councillor in Henley, joined UKIP last year after leaving the Conservative Party in protest at the legalisation of same sex marriage.
Despite Mr Kirby's optimism about the Brighton climate, the actual forecast for the coming week is sadly not so cheerful.
