Nigel Farage has said he stands by his claim that the US President should stay out of British affairs, unless of course there is a cushy job lined up for him at the end of it.
Nigel Farage has told the government that ignoring Donald Trump’s calls for him to be made US Ambassador was putting political dislike above what is best for Nigel Farage.
The three-time UKIP leader told reporters, “When I said during the referendum campaign that President Obama had no place commenting on the British political process, I of course meant that he had no place disagreeing with me.
“This new guy though, he agrees with me on lots of things, so now the British government should be listening very closely to the US President-elect, and what he wants.
“If the US President says I should be Britain’s Ambassador to the US, then it’s the British Government’s job to jump to attention and make it so, regardless of me being the leader of a party in opposition, or disagreeing with the government’s position on just about everything.
“President-elect Trump wants it, so do as you’re told.”
Voter Simon Williams said, “Learning that Nigel Farage is an opportunistic hypocrite only interested in furthering his own political ambitions is just about the least surprising thing to happen in 2016.
“But, this being 2016, the chances are he’ll be in post by Christmas.”
