Polish prince challenges Nigel Farage to 18th Century-style duel

A Polish prince has challenged Ukip leader Nigel Farage to a sword fight, claiming he has "had enough" of what he describes as "discrimination" against his countrymen and women.

In a video message posted to YouTube, Yanek Zylinski - whose father Andrzej Zylinski was a military officer led a successful charge against the Nazis in 1939 - accused Farage of blaming eastern European migrants for the country's problems.

Holding his father's sword, Zylinksi told Farage "enough is enough" and challenged him to an 18th Century-style duel in London.

Farage ain't got balls to accept the challenge. He says what's need to be said to make his wallet grow fat with capitalistic currency. Middleage dueling is illegal anyway. ;)

Indeed. Some people had that title (especially Gedyminic titles) as part of the structural legacy of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (specifically the Lithuanian bit). Others received titles from other jurisdictions during the partition years. Others still, wrongly assume that szlachta translates as nobility rather than gentry and are, not but what, creative.

I can't be bothered to fish around in the F├╝rstlicher Ha├╝ser to check up on this guy's credentials since life is way too short though it's worth mentioning that no official authority in Poland today confers or recognises titles or has done since 1918.

Much more interesting to read about The White House, a palace in London that he's created from a suburban house. Modest and understated it isn't, but I wouldn't mind having it next door to me at all. It certainly suggests that whoever/whatever he is, he isn't Baron Hardup and more importantly he's got vision, flair and panache.
