Nigel Farage made a surprise appearance in women’s clothing at the Liberal Democrat spring conference to joke about same-sex marriage causing floods. Not really, instead in a quite surreal performance, Lorely Burt, the Lib Dem MP for Solihull, donned a mask, held a cigarette and a pint of beer to mock the UKIP leader.

Earlier this year, David Sylvester, then a UKIP councillor claimed that same-sex marriage caused widespread floods across the UK.
