‘Call lorry park Nigel’s Folly’
London – UK campaigners have launched an online petition demanding a vast new lorry park being built to cope with Britain’s post-Brexit freight traffic is named after anti-EU populist Nigel Farage.
The apparently tongue-in-cheek petition calls for the Brexit Party leader’s name to adorn the giant truck stop under construction in Kent, southeast England, to cope with future Channel congestion.
“Without his years of selfish grift, dissembling and misapplied zeal on the behalf of the more gullible voters of Kent, this project just would not be happening,” stated the petition posted on Change.org.
“For the foreseeable future, everyone should genuinely be able to refer to this diesel-soaked valhalla as Nigel’s Folly.”
The petition attracted thousands of signatories, with alternative names suggested including “Farage Garage”. –
