UKIP leader Gerard Batten trolled James O’Brien and the LBC man had the perfect riposte
It’s probably not a surprise that UKIP MEP Gerard Batten (who is also his party’s leader, last time we looked) isn’t a fan of prominent Brexit critic James O’Brien.
And it turns out he doesn’t much like O’Brien’s talk radio station, LBC, much either, after he took time out from his busy schedule to type this.

And O’Brien had the perfect response.
It’s ‘too’. You’re never going to integrate if you don’t master the language. https://t.co/hbQdyZaXGV

Haha, you didn’t specify which one he got wrong. That’s just confusing him now!!

Turns out UKIP’s got a bit of form with this sort of thing.
I see you’re bribing people with free apostrophes again. https://t.co/6KjBL45sDV

And anyway, as a lot of people pointed out, there are plenty of Brexiteers on LBC.
As far as I’m aware @mrjamesob is the only remain voice on LBC. Basically you can’t turn it on without hearing Nick Ferrari, Iain Dale or Nigel Farage. What do you see as the balance issue here?

Which reminded us of the time O’Brien shared exactly what he makes of sharing a station with Nigel Farage.
The despicable belch of beery flatulence made flesh practising what he preaches about foreign politicians and other countries' ballots here: https://t.co/iR5hzoxrEr
