The leader of the UK Independence party (UKIP) has been challenged to a duel by a Polish aristocrat who grew up in Great Britain.
Jan Żyliński stated in a short film published on youtube that he has ''had enough of the discrimination against Polish people in this country.
''The most idiotic example I have heard of has been Mr. Nigel Farage blaming migrants for traffic jams on the M40.''
Drawing his father's sabre, Żyliński clarified that he would like to ''resolve this matter in the way that an 18th century Polish aristocrat and an English gentleman would traditionally do.''
The nettled nobleman suggested London's Hyde Park as a suitable location for the duel.
Żyliński noted that if Farage's sword is ''a little bit rusty,'' the two could meet for a ''duel of words'' in a TV studio in the run-up to the 7 May general election.
The challenger grew up in the UK as his family was compelled to live in exile owing to the installation of a Moscow-backed communist regime in Poland following World War II.
After making a successful career as a businessmen, he built a replica of his family's Polish palace (which did not survice the communist era) in the London district of Ealing.
