Breaking news: The real victim of Brexit is apparently Nigel Farage, so please spare a thought for him. The 53-year-old claimed his “obsession” with leaving the European Union had ruined his life. He said he was now single and broke, and also reminded everyone about the time he nearly died in an airplane crash in 2010 when he was the Ukip leader.
“There’s no money in politics, particularly doing it the way I’ve done it—20 years of spending more than you earn,” he told the Daily Mail. “I have big expenses—lots of kids to pay for and things like that.”
This was news to us, but you could say we’ve been lax in keeping up with things across the pond, as we’ve just this very second learned that Ukip of course stands for the United Kingdom Independent Party.
Friday Night Plans
Originally reported by Komo News
Springfield Police Department reports that two Lane County, Oregon, men were arrested following a crash early Friday that sent one person to the hospital.
Police say the driver of the car and his front seat passenger were taking turns pulling the emergency brake before the crash.
Police say the rear passenger was sitting behind the driver, likely saving his life. He was later transported to a hospital with a fractured back and laceration to his head.
The front-seat passenger, a 26-year-old Eugene man, fled, despite orders to stop. A short foot chase ensued, and he was detained without incident, the report said.
The investigation revealed that the driver was impaired, police said.
Whether the rear passenger was also impaired isn’t reported, but these guys were clearly made for each other.

Doesn’t he know he could shoot his eye out?
