Nigel Farage: Theresa May has no vision for Brexit

The Prime Minister has no clarity or vision for a Brexit plan, Nigel Farage has said.

Speaking to ITV News Political Correspondent Libby Wiener, the former Ukip leader said Theresa May was also missing the opportunity to do business with the world outside of Europe.

He said: "The important point is, does Theresa May have a vision? That’s the thing that I’m looking for. I don’t see it. I don’t see her with a very clear objective as to what she wants to get from these renegotiations.

"I noticed yesterday, and again with the follow up today, almost no mention of the rest of the world - of the amazing opportunities that, I think, the UK has with Brexit. At the minute, there isn’t just a lack of clarity, there’s a lack of vision too."

Theresa May asked if Nigel Farage will get a peerage

Theresa May tried to laugh off a question over whether UKIP's Nigel Farage could be in line for a peerage.

She declined to give a firm answer one way or the other, saying protocol prevents any public discussion of the matter.

SNP member George Kerevan asked "Can the prime minister confirm or deny if there have been any official conversations at any level regarding giving Nigel Farage a peerage?"

There was laughter in the chamber and cries of "hear, hear" after his question.

Mrs May replied: Well, all I can say to the Honourable Gentleman I'm afraid is that such matters are normally never discussed in public."
