Those who don't support my type of Brexit are 'wrong', Farage claims

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has said people who support Boris Johnson's deal are the "wrong" type of Brexiteers.

During an event for party supporters in Buckley, Mr Farage told ITV News the "right type of Brexit" is one that is "free from EU institutions".

"I find it amazing that most people who think the deal is great haven't read it. There is a phenomenon out there called 'Brexhaustion' - I get it. People are tired after three and a half years but if we get the wrong Brexit... we'll regret it for years to come".

Quizzed on whether the people who don't agree with the Brexit he is calling for are wrong, Farage answered "yes"."They would [call themselves Brexiteers] but they wouldn't be right.

"The only way we would genuinely be free of these institutions is the threat of the Brexit Party - and that's why we need to win some of these seats".

Mr Farage also said it is"absolutely" right for him to mention the London Bridge attack during the election campaign.

He said the attack should "give us all pause for thought" and told the audience 74 convicted terrorists and 400 people who fought for Isis in Syria were "walking the streets".

Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, were stabbed by 28-year-old convicted terrorist Usman Khan in London on Friday.

Mr Farage told supporters in the Academy Dance Hall he hoped Donald Trump, who he described as "an American friend of mine", would say America was not interested in buying up the NHS.

He said: "It will not happen and how dare Corbyn talk about privatising the NHS when it was the Labour government that put in place PFI deals."

Mr Farage said he had "no plans" to see the US president while he was in the country on a visit this week.

He stood by what he had said during the ITV debate on Sunday about Mr Trump's comments on sexually assaulting women.

He said: "I tell you what, I bet you there's not a single person, not a single person in Parliament who hasn't at some point in their lives in private said something they regretted terribly the next morning.

"The idea that he should not even be in office because he said it, or that Boris Johnson shouldn't be Prime Minister because he's written some fruity articles... we're reaching levels here of political correctness that are frankly ludicrous."
