Watch: Stewart Lee’s hilarious take down of new Ukip leader Paul Nuttall from 2014

The political comedian mercilessly parodies the then deputy leader's stance on immigration.

By Media Mole

In a sketch from 2014, the acerbic political comedian parodies Ukip’s call for tighter controls on immigration within the EU.

Lee mocks the then deputy leader in an extended sketch which references Britain’s long and successful history of immigration.

The comedian mimics Nuttall screwing up his face and adopting a weasley voice while spouting lines such as: “I’m Paul Nuttalls from Ukips, and I say we need to ensure the brightest and best Anglo-Saxons stay in fifth century northern continental Europe, instead of coming over ‘ere to the UK and laying down the entire basis of our language and culture.”

The mole is amused.
