Nigel Farage Was 'Tricked' Into Saying "Up The Ra" For Money

Former politician and prominent Brexiteer Nigel Farage says he was tricked into saying 'Up the Ra'.

The former politician offers personalised birthday wishes on a website called Cameo for a fee.

On the video which was widely shared on social media he said:

“I hope you have a great birthday. This comes from your good friend. Now, it’s a bit early in the day, so all I’ve got is coffee. But I hope you enjoy a few pints with the lads tonight. Up the RA!”.

It's been viewed more than 90,000 times since it was uploaded.

Nigel Farage has since told the Mail Online: 'If I saw 'up the RA' I would have looked at that as something very innocent, and wouldn't have even known there was an implication to it.

'A lot of messages that I get are friends sending each other messages with their own little jokes or their own little words which I have to judge - and of course, I reject some if they are crude or offensive."
