Nigel Farage: Boris should accept Brexit delay

Chief Brexiteer Nigel Farage has said that Boris Johnson should accept a delay to Brexit.

In a video on his YouTube channel, Farage addresses the Prime Minister directly – calling on him to accept the Brexit extension that’s been “forced” on him by MPs.


Indeed, if Johnson doesn’t come back from Brussels with a deal this week, he is mandated to ask the EU for a Brexit delay until 31st January 2020.

And now, after haranguing MPs for weeks for “betraying” Brexit, Farage is also in favour of a delay.

He says that Johnson should “sit out” this week’s EU summit, “accept the extension,” and go into the next election arguing for a no-deal Brexit – rather than spending any more time negotiating with the EU.

This is a pretty baffling change of heart from Farage, who organised a “Brexit betrayal” march earlier this year when MPs decided to delay our departure date. Under the same rules, he should surely now organise one against himself, right?

Farage’s declaration came on the party’s new favourite social media platform – YouTube. Sky News reported earlier today that views of Farage’s YouTube videos have risen 460% in 30 days, after we revealed that the party was seeking to circumvent broadcast media scrutiny by producing its own videos.

Fortunately, there are still a few eagle-eyed reporters out there, who are willing to hold Farage to account for everything he says and does. Want to help this effort? Chip in to the Scram News fund today.

    1. Yes, Leave means leave. How do we know that leaving under all circumstances is the democratic will of the people. The only way to know is to ask people what they want, a deal that has been negotiated, No deal (meaning a deal will need to be negotiated afterwards) or the deal that is all ready in place (EU membership). Those three option should be put to the people so there can be a clear decision. The only reason I can see for not doing this is fear of getting the “wrong answer”.

  1. For god’s sake are you such a fucking idiot we just had referendum we all knew what we we’re voting for , we are as opposed to you we are not idiots Leave means Leave. Get that into you’re heads.

  2. Brits, Boris should leave the EU on 10/31 w/o a deal – make BREIXT happen – no delay! Why wait – Nigel seems confused – only wants to wait to benefit himself!?!

  3. Not difficult to fathom Farage’s motives. If a deal is done and agreed before or on 31st October and a General Election follows soon after, Nigel Farage becomes completely irrelevant for the umpteenth time. For me, a Remainer, that fact makes the whole fiasco worthwhile.
