JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE REFERENDUM DEBATE COULDN'T GET ANY MORE RIDICULOUS

...this happened. Britain I love you but WHAT IS GOING ON?!
  1. Today, Nigel Farage and his buddies were parading down the Thames as part of a Leave campaign floatilla
  2. It was the last leg of their journey from Ramsgate, alongside Fishing For Leave, as part of their latest publicity campaign for the referendum
  3. It was all going swimmingly
  4. UNTIL
  5. Bob Geldof, he of Band Aid fame, arrives on another boat with a bunch of Remain campaigners - blaring "The In Crowd" as he goes
  6. Some kind of weird water battle ensues with many more boats joining and the fishermen HOSING DOWN the Remain campaign
  7. I found this handy guide to the "Battle of the Thames" on Twitter https://twitter.com/padraigbelton/status/743055932704325632
    Red is Leave, Blue is Remain
  8. Just when you thought the referendum debate had reached its ridiculous peak, this happens
  9. This is not a scene from Alan Partridge or The Thick of It, THIS IS REAL LIFE
  10. Oh and the best thing?
    For some unknown reason Joey Essex was hanging out on the Leave boat too
