Comedian Al Murray ran against Nigel Farage in his local constituency more as a joke than anything else, but when Farage lost his seat earlier this morning, Murray couldn't have been happier.

Murray ran in the guise of his pub landlord character in an attempt to highlight the absurd nature of some of UKIP's claims about immigration and multiculturalism, and while he was fairly sure he wasn't going to get elected, it also seemed inevtiable that Farage would hold on to his seat as the leader of the party.

Instead, Conservative candidate Craig Mackinlay was elected, and Murray's face when the result was read out was absolutely priceless.
