Ealing’s Polish prince has challenged Nigel Farage to a sword duel after reaching the end of his tether with UKIP “demonising his countrymen”.

Janek Zylinski, who lives in ‘The White House’ in Park View Road, has slammed the party leader’s “idiotic” blaming of immigrants for traffic jams on British motorways and says he can not take any more anti-Polish discrimination.

Mr Zylinski called on Mr Farage to meet him in London’s Hyde Park to “resolve the matter in a way that an 18th Century Polish aristocrat and an English gentleman would traditionally do”, although Mr Farage has kindly turned down the offer.

Mr Zylinski, who has lived in Ealing all his life, posted a video on Youtube to lay down his challenge.

The prince said: “What I have to do is to stand up in defence of my people in this country in the UK.

“Enough is enough, Mr Farage. So what I’d like to do, Mr Farage, is to challenge you to a duel.

“I’m offering a duel, if you agree.

“I would like us to meet in Hyde Park one morning with our swords and resolve this matter in a way that an 18th Century Polish aristocrat and an English gentleman would traditionally do.”

Sitting next to a statue of his war hero father, Andrew Zylinski, who he said led a victorious cavalry charge against the Germans in 1939, and clutching his father’s sword, Mr Zylinski said: “I’ve realised that now what I have to do is to stand up in defence of my people in this country in the UK.”

Mr Zylinski admitted getting Mr Farage to agree to a sword duel may be unlikely - so offered a pre-election TV debate instead.

He said: “Alternatively, if you don’t agree, or if your sword is a little bit rusting, Mr Farage, we can meet for a different kind of duel - a duel of words in a TV studio in the run-up to the election.

“I’m up for it, it would be really nice - hopefully you will agree.”

The anti-EU politician however said: “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.”
