Nigel Farage claimed he has completed extra “than anybody else alive” to fight the far proper in Britain in the course of the BBC’s Question Time Leaders’ Special on Friday, 28 June.

The Reform UK chief confronted questions from the viewers on footage captured by Channel 4 of racist and homophobic feedback made by get together canvassers.

Mr Farage mentioned: “I’ve done more to drive the far right out of British politics than anybody else alive.

“I took on the BNP just over a decade ago. I said to their voters, if this is a protest vote but you don’t support their racist agenda, don’t vote for them, vote for me, destroyed them.”

Mr Farage has sought to distance himself from the comments, saying he was “dismayed” by the “appalling sentiments” expressed.
