People are coming up with alternative careers for Nigel Farage on Twitter


As the polls close and Britain knuckles down for a night to remember, the good people of Twitter have taken it upon themselves to suggest alternative career paths for Ukip leader Nigel Farage, if the referendum result sees Britain stay in the EU.

Voting has finished in the historic referendum on British membership of the European Union, with polls suggesting the result remains too close to call.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage arrives to cast his vote

The final poll released just hours before voting stations closed their doors put the In side ahead by a margin of 52% to 48%. But the Ipsos Mori survey for the London Evening Standard is unlikely to be enough to allay prime ministerial nerves, with other polls in the last 24 hours showing a lead for Leave.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage insisted his side could pull off a historic victory if "soft" Remain voters in the capital stayed home because of the bad weather.

Those backing Brexit had the "real conviction and passion" to cast their vote regardless of the conditions, he said.

While we await the verdict, some of the funny folk on Twitter have been suggesting Farage's alternative career path, if the country is to remain within the EU.

Some think Farage could have a bright career as a sportsman.

Others have suggested a dip into the entertainment industry.

Perhaps Farage could be at one with nature.

Some would like to see Farage take up work abroad.

A little reference to #pengate never goes amiss.

And finally, our favourite suggestion of all.
