Doughty – Farage’s No Deal snake oil is a cover for reactionary politics

Nigel Farage has today announced his willingness to stitch up a deal with Boris Johnson to force No Deal on the country.

Commenting, Stephen Doughty MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said: 

Nigel Farage is a charlatan and a snake-oil salesman – he feeds on fear and anger to fuel his dangerous, reactionary, nationalist politics. He pretends to be the voice of the people, but he doesn’t care about anyone but himself.

“It is very revealing that today Farage offered to form a No Deal alliance with Boris Johnson – both these privileged men know they won’t be the ones to suffer from the disaster of crashing out of the EU, but they’re both willing to inflict it on the country without giving the public any say. They are both willing to tear up the democratic process in order to get their way.

“The disastrous vision of Brexit now being pushed by Nigel Farage is a million miles away from the promises he was making in 2016 – when he claimed we’d leave with a great deal, but now says No Deal the only way to go. He’s wrong. The only way to resolve this crisis now is to give the public the final say with a People’s Vote.”
