Nigel Farage would be the like “fox in the chicken coop” as he takes up his position serving as an MP for the primary time kicking off his profession within the House of Commons.

Appearing on GB News, author and commentator Tom Bewick stated it was good for democracy Mr Farage and his 4 Reform UK MP colleagues represented these within the nation in favour of Brexit within the new Parliament.

After listening to a speech by Mr Farage within the Commons the place he referred to former Speaker of the House of Commons John Berow as a “little man”, presenter Emily Carver turned to Mr Berwick and stated “he’s going to cause some trouble, isn’t he, Nigel”

Mr Farage is known to have been making a thinly veiled reference to John Bercow who was Speaker in Parliament through the peak of the Brexit debate.

During his 10 years as speaker, Mr Bercow made quite a few enemies amongst Brexit-supporting MPs as a consequence of a collection of selections perceived as favouring the Remain camp.

Speaking about Mr Farage, Mr Berwick highlighted the challenges the Brexiteer might face when working with a Cabinet the place “90 percent voted Remain”.

Mr Berwick replied: “He is the proverbial fox in the chicken coop, isn’t he. But I have to say as a democrat it was good to see Nigel there, he was elected by his constituents, so he’s there representing them.

“But importantly he was standing in a chamber, let’s be frank, the place in all probability 90 % of these MPs, each these coming for the primary time and people returning, voted Remain.

“And quite of those MPs, including by the way, dare I say, many of those are on the Labour Front Bench and in government, were part of that appalling 2017 to 2019 Parliament.”

Ms Carver interjected: “Just on that, the whole Cabinet are Remain voters aren’t they? the whole Cabinet.”

Mr Berwick continued saying that there wasn’t a single Brexit or supporter of the Leave marketing campaign and that he thought was “one of the big stories of this election”.

Reform UK, previously the Brexit Party, was based in 2018. Prior to final week’s election, the get together had just one MP, Lee Anderson, who defected from the Conservative Party.

Reform returned 5 MPs, together with Mr Farage, who was efficiently elected for Clacton in his eighth run on the Commons.

Mr Farage stated: “We have no experience in this Parliament whatsoever, even though some of us have tried many times over the years previously.”
