Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has hit out at reports that faulty white goods are set to destroy our way of life as we know it.
The London Fire Brigade, The London Mayor and safety groups are warning the plastic backing on white goods are highly inflammable.
“This is wholly wrong,” Nigel Farage told his followers on social media.
“Fridges, freezers and washing machines involved in these fires always look to be pretty black to me. There’s no evidence that white goods are causing this.
“While I accept that there might be a problem with a very limited number of our white goods it is insane to blame the entire indigenous white goods community.
“Post Brexit we will be able to close our borders to goods of all sorts of colours, they are, after all, the real culprits here.
When asked if existing white goods, imported from within the EU, will be told to leave after March 2019, Farage replied, “If an appliance has settled, is working and not living amongst a family claiming benefits, and has no previous convictions for arson, then we will not be campaigning for it to be returned to its country of origin.
If, however, it is not working at least forty hours a week we would support the campaign to have it returned and its job offered to a white British good.”
