Nigel Farage: 'Theresa May is toast'

Nigel Farage predicts Theresa May is toast.

Theresa May is "toast" and stands no chance of staying on as Prime Minister, Nigel Farage believes.

The former Ukip leader also fears the result of the General Election could lead to there being a second referendum on EU membership.

"I think, whatever happens, Theresa May is toast, it's just a matter of time," he said.

"Quite frankly, I don't know what's going to happen here."

He added: "My fear is that Corbyn forms a coalition with the SNP and a few Lib Dems and we look down the barrels of a second referendum in two years time."
