Nigel Farage has been trolled online after posting a tweet complaining about Boris Johnson's latest lockdown measures.
The Brexit Party leader took to Twitter to vent his frustrations over his county of Kent being placed under the toughest lockdown restrictions announced by the prime minister earlier this week.
Kent, along with swathes of the North East, will enter the highest tier of restrictions when England's nationwide lockdown ends on December 2.
Sharing his disappointment with the announcement, Farage tweeted: "Kent has gone from Tier 1 to Tier 3 because of a single Borough. Insane, people are really angry."
This sparked a flurry of hilarious, and at times serious, responses on Twitter.
