Nigel Farage has been accused of many things in his time in politics, most of which would make some grown adults die from embarrassment and retreat from public life forever.

However, we're not sure if he'll ever be able to come back from being accused of faking a letter from a 10-year-old boy who claimed to be a Brexiteer and supporter of the 55-year-old MEP.

Farage tweeted a picture of the letter from 'Matthew' on Friday afternoon, where the youngster claimed that his school 'brainwash us to be pro-EU' but him and his 'fellow leaver' mate aren't buying it.

It read (verbatim) as follows:

Dear Nigel,

I'm a ten year old boy and I'm writing to express my gratitude to you and your Party.

Without you the Leave Voters would have nobody to represent their opinions as the majority of MPs in Parliament want to ignore democracy and over turn the referendum result.

At my School they try and brainwash us to be Pro-EU but me and my friend Jim (fellow Leaver) know their tricks.

Many thanks and good luck,

from Matthew 

Sounds legit to us because I don't know about you, dear reader, but as a 10-year-old I was really into European politics and knew the name and address of an unelected leader of a fringe party with no MPs.

Immediately after Farage tweeted this picture many people began to notice several things that weren't quite right and the Brexit Party leader soon found himself being mercilessly mocked.

People then started to reply with parody letters.

Inevitably Farage found himself being awarded the notorious 'Didn't Happen of the Year award' a whole six months before the end of the year.
