But why that tie Nigel?

Nigel Farage the UKIP leader was on typically ebullient form this morning on the Andrew Marr show. But as the non-politicos I was watching it with pointed out, he was wearing a very strange tie dotted with pink elephants. It rather distracted from his message.
I asked him later why he was wearing it,
"Well, it was a present from my daughter and when I was getting ready to go to the studio, she asked if I would wear 'her tie'. How could I refuse"
Seems like a good excuse to me. That being said, the idea of anybody daring to to image consult Farage is eye-opening. Brass neck and other item would be required.

I think that tie is pimping.

Perhaps it's to remind him of the pink elephants that he sees after lunch!
