Maajid Nawaz says that Nigel Farage should be brought in from the cold and given a peerage.

Talking on his LBC show, Maajid argued that it was necessary to involve Farage in our Brexit process in order to avoid being outflanked on the right.

“I think an olive branch should be extended. For his uncanny knack, for his uncanny finger on the pulse of the country, for his uncanny ability to be a survivor, which I respect despite disagreeing with him.”

“Give him a peerage.

"He can be Lord Leave - Baron Brexit. Put him in the House of Lords or give him an ambassadorial role.”
