U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage seems to spend half of his time asserting that Ukip is "not a racist party" and the other half apologizing for his party's racism. Ukip's anti-immigrant rhetoric has many critics, but one of the most vocal and most sword-owning of them is Yanek Zylinski, a self-described Polish prince who literally challenged Farage to a duel over the weekend.

In a YouTube video posted this weekend, Zylinksi brandishes a sword he says belonged to his father, a Polish aristocrat and war hero. He explains he's finally had it with Ukip, and would like to cut down their leader on behalf of Britain's Polish population.

"I've had enough of the discrimination against Polish people in this country. The most idiotic example I've heard of has been Mr. Nigel Farage blaming migrants for traffic jams on the M4," he says.

He's inviting Farage to settle their dispute like gentlemen, with swords in Hyde Park some morning.

But, perhaps sensing that Farage is not a gentleman, he offers up the alternative of a debate before next month's general election, in which Ukip is projected to pick up around 15% of the vote.

Farage, an asshole, took the opportunity to remind everyone he thinks it would be better if Poles just stayed in Poland:

"I would have thought that a Polish prince with a long Polish lineage would rather agree with me that it's a complete tragedy for Poland that it's lost so many of its brightest and best young people."

"It is an impressive sword. I don't have one but I'm sure we could find one if we had to. But I'm not intending to accept the offer," he added, according to Sky News.

It's a shame, too, because I imagine a lot of people would have paid good money to see that. Forget Mayweather-Pacquiao—that's just two rich guys getting richer by beating each other up. This is a prince trying to beat racism with an enormous sword.
