NIGEL Farage has warned that the appointment of arch-federalist Guy Verhofstadt as the European Parliament’s top negotiator amounts to a “declaration of war on any sensible negotiating process”.

Nigel Farage has branded Guy Verhofstadt a ‘dangerous fanatic’

There are certainly plenty of figures with whom our Government would prefer to deal. Verhofstadt embodies all that is worst about the bloc’s arrogant leadership.Unelected and unaccountable he could not care less about the objections that people have to Brussels rule. It would be naive to expect him to appreciate the significance of the referendum result.

The idea of an independent state leaving and doing well represents a terrible threat to his beloved EU project.

Mr Farage has frequently clashed with the former Belgian PM

The last thing he wants is a prosperous Britain enticing other member states to go it alone. Such characters will continue to exert control over us until we have finally left.With the Brexit process set to drag on it is clear that we still desperately need the presence of Ukip. .

By exposing their mistakes and holding them to account he has performed a vital public service. His successor has a lot to live up to.
