Nigel Farage has challenged Rishi Sunak to a reside TV debate on immigration. The Reform UK honorary president accused the Prime Minister of calling the shock normal election as a result of he is aware of his Rwanda plan “simply would not work”.

The former UKIP leader insisted that if Mr Sunak refuses to debate him it will “verify the truth that Sunak can’t cease the boats”.

Writing in The Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “It appears to be like like immigration, authorized and unlawful, will dominate this normal election marketing campaign.

“The main reason for this snap election is because Sunak knew that his promise that the planes would start going to Rwanda from July simply would not work.

“Now it’s clear that no planes will go earlier than the July 4 election day.

“Remember, a single judge from the European Court of Human Rights was able to prevent a plane that was already on the tarmac from taking off.

“We won’t ever resolve this harmful downside until we depart the ECHR, and Starmer has no credibility in coping with this difficulty in any respect. Brexit Britain shouldn’t be beholden to a European courtroom.

“Our Prime Minister appears to be keen to engage in many televised election debates, and I challenge him to debate with me on this issue. If he refuses, that will confirm the fact that Sunak can’t stop the boats.”

A Tory supply prompt Mr Sunak would flip down the invitation as a result of he needs to debate Labour chief Sir Keir Starmer on border controls.

A Conservative Party supply stated: “A vote for Reform is a vote for Labour.

“The PM wants to debate immigration with Keir Starmer because we have a clear plan to stop the boats, but because Starmer’s only idea is for an illegal migration amnesty, he’s trying to chicken out.”

Mr Farage’s problem comes forward of a speech in Dover right this moment in his first main intervention within the election marketing campaign.

He isn’t standing as an MP however plans to marketing campaign for Reform across the nation.
