Nigel Farage – also known as ‘Mr Brexit’ – had harsh words for the US and President Biden as he discussed issues on both sides of the pond in an interview with Fox News Digital .
“[The U.K.] caught the US revival disease, and it now has a stranglehold on our institutions, much to the dismay of the silent majority,” Farage said.
Farage lamented the change in US-UK relations since Biden took office, arguing that the two countries had a better dynamic when former President Trump was in office, and that Trump might have -to be signed a free trade agreement with Great Britain, helping the country. as he continues to find his footing with Brexit.
Although he said he didn’t think Biden “likes the UK very much”, he pointed to the potential benefits to each country that would come from aid developing the famous “special relationship”.

“Longer term, clearly, America, for God’s sake, we speak the same language,” Farage said. “We have common law. We’re the biggest foreign investor in the United States, the biggest foreign investor here, and huge cultural ties.”
“So I think trade with America between us and America should grow. Trade between [the U.K.] and India, I think, should grow. And those are the two really big areas where I see opportunities for us going forward.”
Farage also criticized Biden for “doing everything he can to slowly but surely” steer America away from leadership as an energy exporter.
As hard as Farage has been on Biden, he has spared little love for Britain’s ruling Conservative Party, saying current UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak – whom Farage has called “Goldman’s first UK Prime Minister Sachs – had “virtually disappeared” and was “not a leader. ”

“In terms of leadership, he doesn’t have the ability, which is why he actually lost the contest to be the leader of the Conservative Party, lost it by some margin to Liz Truss, and yet, by failing, in the end he got the best job,” Farage said. “Yeah, he might be a very smart man, but he’s not a leader.
Farage laid the blame for many of the country’s current problems at the feet of the ruling Conservative Party, such as the lack of a ‘reasonable’ response to nationwide strikes in a number of industries in Britain and the failure to deliver the type of Brexit. expected voters.
“I have to say that when it comes to vital jobs like ambulance driving, I personally don’t believe strikes are morally acceptable, but I do think the government’s aloof stance on this is not just,” Farage explained. “I think they should really advise these 10 Downing Street unions and say, look, you know, what do you want? Is it a class war? does there seem to be a hard leftist agenda?”
“I think with the others there are reasonable trade-offs that can be made, and yet they won’t quite get salary increases in line with inflation,” he added.

The Conservative Party has also failed to quell rising illegal immigration – something Brexit supposedly thwarted. Farage referred to an incident with the Australians, who faced widespread international criticism after turning back a boat of Indonesian refugees trying to enter the country.
Britain struck a deal to send illegal immigrants to Rwanda, but the first planned deportation flight to Rwanda was blocked in June by a last-minute injunction granted by the European Court of Human Rights, and the legality of the strategy was later challenged in the High Court in London. , reported Reuters.
Britain should have had the ‘courage’ to take on the European Court, but Sunak and his government were more worried about international condemnation and backlash from foreign allies than sticking to his policy, says Faring.
“They’re stuck,” he said. “They keep promising they will deliver. I promise you they won’t.”

Farage accused Britain’s major parties and media of never accepting the Brexit referendum, which prevented the country from acting on the real opportunity that independence presented.
“Brexit only makes sense if you put in place supply-side reforms, unless you use the opportunity of not being in the European single market to regulate, to make the rules simpler , cheaper and easier,” Farage said. “The great sadness is that the Conservative government has done literally nothing – absolutely nothing – nothing for your small business in the high street, nothing for your big brokerage in the City of London.”
“I can tell you, as you know, man [who] was christened Mr Brexit after someone who has dedicated his life to it. It’s not the Brexit I wanted, and I’m very, very disappointed,” he added, acknowledging that the current form of Brexit does not deliver on the promises made but stressing that independence remains popular.
Such independence, he insisted, allowed the UK to play a leading role in supporting Ukraine when Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered its invasion and to deploy vaccinations when and how they wanted with the ability to regulate and approve vaccines at the pace of the country.

“A lot of people are starting to ask themselves, what was the point of all this? And I repeat, the point is crucial: this is not a failure of Brexit, it is a failure of the Conservative government which frankly is not there. never really believed, only took this position to stop me,” he said.
“Good: I was happy with that at the time,” Farage continued. “They never believed it. And that leads to a growing level of disenchantment.”
All of this turmoil and lack of leadership has created an excellent opportunity for a “political insurrection” for a new center-right party, according to Farage. He believes that the Conservative Party has slid to the left, ending up on the centre-left, with other parties even further to the left.
The two main parties – the Conservative Party and the Labor Party – now ‘virtually mirror each other on every major policy’ and leave ‘no choice’ over which ideology or policy matters, which Farage says led to the exit of the country practically unachievable.

However, any new party might have to spring up without his help, as Farage reiterated that returning to the political front lines is “not at the top of my bucket list”, but he left the possibility open.
“I’m considering my options,” Farage said. “I haven’t made up my mind. I won’t rule it out.”
