‘I destroyed the far right in UK’: Farage on Brexit, UKIP future & neo-Nazi past rumors
In an interview with RT UK, outgoing UKIP leader Nigel Farage denied that his Brexit campaign contributed to the rising tensions that have followed the UK’s decision earlier this summer to leave the EU.
“Do I feel responsible for people saying extreme things? Quite the reverse,” said the politician, after News Thing host Sam Delaney noted that recorded incidents of abuse have risen since June’svote. “I almost single-handedly destroyed the far right in British politics; that’s not a bad achievement.”
