McGrory – Sending Farage to Brussels to sort out Brexit like sending an arsonist to put out a house fire

Nigel Farage is scheduled to meet with Michel Barnier on Monday 8 January, it was revealed today.

Commenting, James McGrory, Executive Director of Open Britain, said:

“Sending Nigel Farage to Brussels to sort out Brexit is like sending an arsonist to put out a house fire.

“After years of poisoning our politics, telling outright lies about the EU and cosying up to Trump, he has already done enough damage to our country and our international standing.

“He has no answers to the costs and complexity of Brexit, other than to blithely say we should walk away with no deal, which would be an unmitigated disaster for our economy and our country.

“As it becomes clear that the Brexit that he and other leading Leave campaigners sold to the public is not deliverable, what is required is honesty and realism, neither of which are Nigel Farage’s forte.”
