Nigel Farage on Newsnight: ‘Brexit has failed’
Brexiteer Nigel Farage has claimed that Brexit has “failed” because “useless” Conservative politicians have “mismanaged” the exit process.
The GB News host told BBC Newsnight on Monday, May 15, that the UK has “not actually benefited from Brexit economically” from its departure from the European Union.
Mr Farage said that he did not think “for a moment” that the UK would have been better off economically by remaining in the bloc.
But explained: “We haven’t benefited from Brexit economically when we could have done.
“What Brexit has proved, I’m afraid, is that our politicians are about as useless as the commissioners in Brussels were. We have mismanaged this totally.”

He continued: “And if you look at simple things such as takeovers, corporation tax, we are driving business away from our country.
“Arguably, now we’re back in control we’re regulating our own businesses even more than they were as EU members. Brexit has failed.
Mr Farage said he “wouldn’t rule out” a return to frontline politics, adding: “It is not at the top of my bucket list. But frankly, we have not delivered on borders, we have not delivered on Brexit, the Tories have let us down very badly.”

The former UKIP leader previously said that he would leave the country if Brexit turned out to be a “disaster”.
Downing Street disagreed with Mr Farage’s comments, with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s official spokesperson saying: “I think the Prime Minister has talked about the benefits of Brexit on a number of occasions.”
