He lied and lied and lied now he's disappeared. Why did he do this?

    Both sides stretched the truth. Don't blame Nigel. There were some real whoppers from Remainers too.

    Nigel did not lie about anything. There were more people opposed to the EU than UKIP,all they did was scare Cameron into giving us a referendum and the rest is history.

      No. One mistake, which I accepted and apologised for, doesn't change my overall opinion.

    Mr Farage is an old fashioned racist - mistrustful of foreigners, especially dark skinned ones, and his opposition to the EU was driven by that - not economics, or the well being of the nation.

    But the Brexit case was full of lies.

    Lie 1 was that we send £350 million per week to the EU. The cost of membership was consistently shown to be £160 million, but the Brexit liars refused to correct their lie.

    Lie 2 was that we could spend this £350 million per week (which it wasn't) on the NHS.

    But this was, apparently,"a mistake". Liar Farage wasn't saying that before the referendum, only after.

    Lie 3 was that leaving the EU would reduce immigration. Brexit campaigner Daniel Hannan MEP, said that leaving the EU won't reduce immigration. When did he say this? After the referendum, obviously.

    Lie 4 was that Turkey was just about to join the EU, and 75 million Turks would arrive imminently in Dover. Let's face it, Farage has form for lying about immigration, since his "29 million Bulgarians and Romanians are coming" lie.

    Turkey has made no progress towards EU membership since first applying eleven years ago, Erdogan is taking Turkey further from EU membership, not closer, with his human rights abuses, and this week's attempted military coup show just how far Turkey is from stability, and EU membership. I think it would be scaremongering to suggest it could happen in the next 20 years.

    Lie 5 - That we are losing sovereignty. Jacob Rees-Mogg said "“The UK consistently loses in the EU because other members favour a highly regulated and protectionist economy”". But it doesn't. UK has voted with the majority on 2474 acts, abstained on 70, and only "lost" on 57 occasions.

    But the most hilarious one of all, the biggest lie the Brexiters fell for, the whopperoony of all lies that the idiots still believe is that because they won the vote, we will leave the EU. We won't. Look at the team of narcissistic egotists charged with negotiating our exit - Johnson, Fox and Davies. They have been set up to fail, and we will see a General Election fought before Article 50 is invoked, that election will be fought on EU membership, and will over-rule the referendum.

      There is only one political party which vets new members to check they are not members of fascist parties, and that is UKIP. Those who accuse it of racism are generally the worst offenders, the Conservative and Labour parties are riddled with it.

    No, child. Nobody did any tricks. We all wanted to leave right from the 1970's and now we will. It is for your sake.

    Farage openly paraded his politics and a majority of voters agreed with his aim of leaving the EU. There was no deceit on his behalf and he promised nothing but effort, which he provided for many many years.
