Farage upstaged by Nazi Dancing Girls (video).

Farage's unremarkable Winter Gardens gathering was thoroughly upstaged Friday as dancing Nazis and a 16 tonne World War II tank crashed the "party".

Performers from Mel Brooks’ of the acclaimed musical comedy The Producers showed up outside the Winter Gardens with a high-kicking performance to the famous number Springtime For Hitler.

In a break from the relatively unremarkable and not really worth mentioning political gathering of not-Tories-any-more a much more interesting upstaging took place. A trope of female dancers in Gestapo-style hot pants, Jackboots and insignia surprised (and possibly delighted) people gathering to cheer, jeer or spectate Farage and his cronies at a gathering for whatever self-congratulatory event that they had organised. (Honestly, no one outside of their little circle much cared anyway).

The ladies were in Thanet to promote the new touring production The Producers. Which they did with an amusingly ironic rendition of the song Springtime For Hitler which blared from a P.A system hung on the German World War II’s tank turret. Which just goes to show how seriously the rest of the world takes this flash-in-the-pan party.

Producer Adam Spiegel apparently said afterwards: I’m disappointed but not entirely surprised to see that UKIP are trying to hitch a publicity ride on the back of the show.

It is hard to overstate just how amusing I have found this news story.

Channel 4 have additional coverage (and photographs) as do thedrum.com (among many others).
