UKIP to put on Black and White Minstrel Show

UKIP black and white minstrel show

The United Kingdom Independence party are set to go back to basics and perform a Black and White Minstrel show in an attempt to win back lost supporters according to BBC insiders.

UKIP leader and sometime multi-race crooner Nigel Farararage told us “If we look back to the 1970s, there was only one foreigner in every road and everyone was happy. If we wanted foreigners then we’d make our own and that’s why the Black and White Minstrel show was so popular. Back then Bongo Bongo land was a real country. In fact I think Tin Tin had an adventure there at one point.  And Asterix. And Biggles.  So I’m painting myself black and pretending I come from Timbuktu, while I sing ‘Old Man River’.”

UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom said he would join in but ultimately felt it was being done to appease Guardian readers.  “It’s all political correctness gone mad if you ask me, but Nigel’s the boss so we better do what he says. I’ve never even been to Bongo Bongo land myself so I’m going to be one of the ones painting myself white instead.  On the plus side people won’t be able to say we haven’t got our finger on the pulse.”

Television presenter and journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy, who had  earlier grilled Mr Bloom over his Bongo Bongo land stance, expressed surprise at the show which will begin on BBC1 before touring local theatres.  “They do seem to be making an effort” he told us.
