"F**k off back to Eton" - Man uses ukulele to serenade David Cameron

It wasn’t even the strangest thing to happen on the UK’s campaign trail today.

THINGS GOT A little weird for both David Cameron and Nigel Farage on the campaign trail today.

The UK’s Prime Minister was on his first campaign walkabout in Alnwick in the northeast of England when he was heckled by a man with a ukelele.

The man proceeded to strum the instrument while singing, “F**k off back to Eton with all your Eton chums.”

The Tory leader pretended like he didn’t hear the seaside ditty but one of his minders certainly did, attempting to stop the gentleman from swearing.

It wasn’t even the strangest thing to happen on the UK campaign trail today though.

The aristocratic son of a Polish war hero challenged Ukip leader Nigel Farage to a sword duel in Hyde Park, saying he’s “had enough of the discrimination against Polish people in this country”.

Janek Zylinski is the son of cavalry officer Captain Andrzej Zylinski, who he explains led a victorious charge against the Nazis in 1939, helping to save 6,000 Jews.

Zylinski the younger now wants to take on Farage for some of the claims he’s been making.

“The most idiotic example I’ve heard of has been Mr Nigel Farage blaming migrants for traffic jams on the M40,” he said.

“This is my father’s sword. I have his blood. I realise now what I have to do and that is stand up in defence of my people in this country, in the UK. ”

“Enough, is enough Mr Farage. So what I’d like to do is challenge you to a due, an offer of a duel, if you agree.  I would like us to meet in Hyde Park one morning, with out swords and solve this matter in the way that an 18th century Polish aristocrat and an English gentleman would traditionally do. Are you up for it Mr Farage, do you agree?”
