Farage: Extremism Exists Because We're Afraid Of Being Called Racist
Political leaders say Britain is united, but Nigel Farage disagrees.
In the wake of Wednesday’s Westminster terror attack, political leaders say Britain is united... but Nigel Farage isn’t so sure.
Speaking on his nightly LBC show, Nigel argued there is growing differences between the views of "ordinary folk" and politicians on issues such as terrorism.
Referring to a survey by thinktank Chatham House last month, which showed 55 per cent of Europeans supported a ban on immigration from mainly Muslims countries, Nigel said: "What I'm sensing is that people are saying frankly through irresponsibility our politicians of course much of this problem.
"Through weakness we haven't dealt with issues, we haven't dealt with the growth of extremism because we've been too afraid to be called racist.
"I think there is a problem here, and I think the public are getting really pretty upset."
