Shakespeare Was an Ethnic Minority Claims Ukip Historian

ESSEX - England - Ukip historian, Lee Carver, has revealed that William Shakespeare was an illegal immigrant from an ethnic minority.

“He had a beard, talked funny with some weird sort of lingo, not really English is it, a bit like a Muslim and he also knew about other countries in the world? That’s proof enough for me, could’ve been a dego, or something,” the Ukip historian said at a recent Ukip rally.

The historian also claims that William Shakespeare’s family settled in Stratford Upon Avon only after dodging Tudor immigration officers and that his father, John, (real name: Zoltan Petrescu) was a Romanian gypsy thatched roofer who worked nights in a chicken farm in Surrey. There are also some clues, the historian claims, in a few Shakespeare drafts which have never been published and are purported to show the turmoil Shakespeare went through as an illegal immigrant.
