Nigel Farage hit clashed with Sky News’s Lewis Goodall as the pair discussed the changing dynamic of politics and how his Brexit Party crowd reacts to certain political figures. Mr Farage insisted historically bad things happen if one group of individuals consider themselves to be superior to another, pointing toward the treatment of voters by Remainer MPs. Mr Goodall began the interview by saying: “We can all agree that politics has become more coarse in recent years.
“But I put it to you that maybe you are partly responsible for that cause.
“Just a few things you have said in recent times, if you don’t get the sort of Brexit that you want you would pick up a rifle.”
Mr Farage then interrupted to insist that it was a metaphor and a joke that he uttered during a comedy evening.
The Sky News reporter continued: “Okay, you have described the British Brexit negotiation team as the enemy within.
“You have said many times in this campaign that Theresa May’s deal would only be signed by a nation defeated in war.
“You consistently evoke the language of war, of appeasement and betrayal.
“I have been at many of the rallies and very often when you mention names like Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, Anna Soubry or whoever it is.
“You mention their names and get the crowd to boo, okay fair enough, a bit pantomime but fair enough.
“Then people shout out the word traitor, you never turn around and say excuse me sir or madam they are not traitors, they are citizens they are patriots, I just disagree with them.”
Mr Farage then snapped back: “I’m sorry but history teaches us something here.
“If you tell people they are superior or that their views are superior to another group of people, bad things happen.
“The only way civilised democracy functions is if the loser concedes to the result.
“What you have had here since the referendum is some very senior public figures that do not accept the will of the people and that has radicalised a group.”
