In all the furore about Farage's latest speech, this odd claim,

The AFP report of yesterday's debate in the European Parliament was recycled in various places. It contained much that was fair. It also contained this rather odd claim about Farage,
He secured a million votes at the last general election, surviving a helicopter crash on polling day and a series of operations on his back to boost his popularity.
Eh? Run that past me again. He had a helicopter crash, and had a series of back operations to boost his popularity.

Now I know he likes publicity, but theymust think the Brits are really weird if they feel that a series of back operations acts to help ones popularity.

I thought it was a plane crash, not a helicopter?
