Nigel Farage unveils a portrait of himself in FRENCH restaurant

The bizarre moment Nigel Farage unveils a portrait of HIMSELF called ‘Mr Brexit’ in a FRENCH restaurant – with a little help from comedian Jim Davidson

  • The painting by  Dan Llywelyn Hall was revealed at L’Escargot French restaurant
  • Brexiteer comedian Jim Davidson was among those present at London eaterie 
  • Oil painting will be auctioned to raise money for charity

Nigel Farage was immortalised in art today as he proudly showed off a portrait of himself called ‘Mr Brexit’.

The eurosceptic chose the surroundings of the L’Escargot French restaurant in London to unveil the work by Dan Llywelyn Hall less than 36 hours before the UK is set to leave the European Union.

Brexiteer comedian Jim Davidson was among those present at the Gallic Soho eaterie to show off the artwork, which will be auctioned to raise money for charity.

The day after sitting as an MEP for the last time in Brussels he took a pop at the Belgian capital and its own lunch spots, which he has enjoyed during his 20 year career.  

Reflecting on his decades in the heart of the EU establishment he said: ‘I won’t miss Brussels because it’s a dump. 

‘But I will miss Strasbourg which has got lots of family-run restaurants and yeah, of course, I am going to miss that.’

Mr Farage had earlier defiantly insisted Brexiteers will have a good time at his Brexit party tomorrow night despite a ban on booze, live music and fireworks. 

He claimed the ‘Establishment’ had done everything it possibly could to make the event in Parliament Square tomorrow night a ‘damp squib’. 

But he said ‘none of that matters’ and the restrictions would not stop him and his fellow Leave voters from marking a ‘remarkable piece of history’.

He told MailOnline: ‘Everything that could be done to make the event a damp squib has been done by the Establishment. 

‘From Big Ben which was able to bong on Remembrance Sunday and for New Year, to no fireworks and no alcohol. 

‘But do you know what? None of that matters. We are there to mark and celebrate two things. 

‘One, a remarkable piece of history. And two, the victory of ordinary people against the political establishment. It can rain if it wants to. It does not matter.’
