Further evidence that UKIP, and pretty much everything they do, is just an elaborate joke that could have been written by Chris Morris, or in this case, Ricky Gervais, has been revealed...kinda.

Ricky Gervais took to Twitter last night to do a bit of his trademark mocking fringed with self-promotion when he tweeted out a link to his song Equality Street, made in 2013 with Doc Brown. 

The similarities between Gervais' viral hit and the recently released 'UKIP Calypso' are interestingly (read, depressingly) abundant. UKIP haven't been doing well on the music scene since the UKIP Calypso was disowned by its maker, Mike Read, just a day after it was released to the public. Read, the former Radio 1 DJ and UKIP supporter, had initially gained support from UKIP's leader, Nigel Farage, who told his followers via Twitter to help get the song to No. 1. The song itself came under fire for the Jamaican accent Read took on...oh and the overall hateful vibe of the thing.

Maybe we could do that with Equality Street instead? Anything to make Farage's day a little bit worse.

Here's the man himself
