Nigel Farage Challenged By Listener To Praise Jeremy Corbyn


This is the moment Nigel Farage was challenged by an LBC listener to “say something nice about Jeremy Corbyn”.

The outspoke politician was broadcasting his nightly show from a conference in Portugal when the gauntlet was thrown down.

Nigel is not usually shy in expressing his opinion about the Labour leader - or any politician he doesn’t agree with.

But, when he received this message from Paul, he was ready to step up to the plate.

Paul asked: “As you’re meant to be a neutral broadcaster, try saying something nice about Jeremy Corbyn.”

The LBC presenter was quick to reference a tweet he sent to his 800,000 followers last night following the May V Corbyn: Battle For Number 10 interviews.

He said: “I put out on Twitter that whilst I didn’t agree with Jeremy Corbyn’s politics, I thought he came across as a very genuine person.”

Nigel noted that his tweet was shared thousands of times, including by Labour MPs.

“I couldn’t have actually been nicer about Corbyn,” he said.
