As we write, Nigel Farage and, yep, Bob Geldof are engaged in a bizarre boat battle, with the pint-swilling UKIP MP leading a flotilla of Brexit boats down the river, while the grizzled musician has commandeered a vessel of his own.

Geldof is armed with a sound system, while it seems Farage is fighting his corner with a water cannon…

Here’s Bob’s IN boat. Embarrassingly for Boris Johnson, his sister Rachel appears to be on board…

Here’s Nigel’s Brexit boat, part of a flotilla of around 30, apparently

Bob’s boat has a kick-ass sound system…

It’s playing kick-ass tunes like, oh…

Nigel’s boat has a water cannon and is firing it at the Bremainers

But Bob hits back with a megaphone rant about fishing that recalls the glory days of “Give us your f***king money!”

And Nigel retaliates with “It’s rich people laughing at poor people!”

This is tiring work, how are the boaters keeping up their energy? It may not surprise you to hear that HMS Farage features a bar… 

…and a buffet…

No news as yet of refreshments in the Geldof camp. So instead here’s someone from UKIP having a glass of wine…

Looks like it’s going to be one big party once we leave Europe…
