Theresa May Shows Signs Of Followership, Not Leadership, Says Nigel Farage

22 May 2017, 21:38

This was Nigel Farage’s response to Theresa May’s apparent U-turn on her party’s social care manifesto policy.

The Prime Minister now says there will be a cap on the amount people will have to pay for their social care.

Her announcement, which Mrs May insists was not a U-turn, followed criticism of the policy from political rivals after it was unveiled last week.

Giving his thoughts on his nightly LBC show from Manchester, Nigel explained how making changes during the election was probably not the wisest idea.

He said: “When you make a decision, when you’ve thought it through, when you’ve made a manifesto commitment, with just three weeks to go before a general election, you expect to take some stick!

“What you do is you double down, you make the argument, you turn public opinion around, I feel what we’ve seen today is an act of followership, not leadership.”
