Responding to Nigel Farage’s interview on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show today, Jo Swinson MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign said:
“Nigel Farage represents the very worst of British politics.
“Few will have been surprised by his refusal to own up to his well-documented and abhorrent views on privatisation of the NHS, his admiration for Vladimir Putin and his denial of the facts about climate change.
“And despite his claims to the contrary, everyone remembers that he promised in 2016 that there would be an amazing cost-free Brexit deal available to Britain if we voted to leave the EU. To say today that he always advocated ‘no deal’ is a mark of just how shameless he is, and how little he cares for the jobs and livelihoods of the people of this country.
“There is one thing Nigel Farage cares passionately about and that is Nigel Farage. In these European Parliament elections we must stop him becoming the face of Britain. And we must ensure that the public are given an opportunity to say, now we know the real facts and costs about Brexit, whether they want to go ahead with it.”
