Lily Allen Trolls Nigel Farage, Rupert Murdoch At Proper Garden Party

On Sunday, July 3, singer Lily Allen attended a garden party hosted by Evening Standard owner Evgeny Lebedev. The guest list included such insufferable cretins as News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch and now-ex UKIP leader Nigel Farage. Upon discovering this, Allen threw herself into the righteous task of documenting—and cheerily mocking—the activity of her fellow party-goers.


As Complex reports, Allen chronicled the event on Twitter with a dash of scathing commentary.

She referred to Murdoch as “Voldemort” and to Farage as “Fromage” (snort).


Now that Farage has successfully ushered his country into mad turmoil, he is smugly stepping down, presumably to spout racist bile and smell his own farts. He’s also stepping out in the gnarliest pair of shoes I’ve seen in some time.

Allen also captured Farage-Fromage, Voldemort, and Conservative leader candidate Liam Fox having a jolly time together. Apparently both Farage and Fox made a made dash so as to snag seats next to Murdoch.


And in the following video, Allen surmises that Murdoch and his wife are headed into the house so that she can change his diaper. It’s not out of the realm of possibilities.


Guests were not supposed to take photographs at the party, let alone post them, but as Allen told the Guardian, “[Murdoch’s] publications have been making money from publishing pictures of me.”

She also commented on the flagrant charade of politics and rivalry. “The interesting thing,” she said, “is that these people will go on about how much they hate each other, but they are willing to sit and break break with each other. It just shows that it is a game, it is not real.”


Bless our spur-of-the-moment media pundit Lily Allen.

Someone on the main page is criticizing her for attending and I'm thinking you'd be crazy not to go just for this reason. So much fun to be had! And you get the inside dirt. And there must be alcohol. When I was working I got invites to political parties for people I reeeeeally didn't agree with. I always went. You have to know your enemy. And drink their booze.
