UKIP leader Paul Nuttall has claimed that he lost ‘several close friends’ during the 1415 Battle of Agincourt. He admitted that information posted on his website, which said that he had lost friends during the 1989 Hillsborough disaster was ‘incorrect’, and claimed he had meant to write ‘Agincourt’ instead. He went on to argue that it’s ‘very easy to get those two events muddled up’ adding ‘I bet historians do it all the time’. 
 
Nuttall went on to provide additional details, explaining how he had been drinking buddies with a couple of longbowmen who were cut down by French knights during the battle. He described them as ‘good blokes’ who ‘very much agreed with UKIP policy on windfarms’. 
 
The UKIP leader added that he was particularly confident on his assertions due to his ‘Professorship in Medieval History at Oxford University’ and the fact that he had personally invented and built several time machines. 
 
Finally Nuttall commented that he ‘doubted’ that Prime Minister Theresa May knew anyone killed at Agincourt, making her ‘basically a traitor’. 
 
When asked contacted by The Spark former UKIP leader Nigel Farage commented that 'you thought I was bad - bloody hell, you ain't seen nothing yet'.
