19 August 2018, 12:44
Nigel Farage says he feels "more strongly" about leaving the European Union than he did at the time of the referendum.
Speaking on his LBC show, Nigel Farage said that there was "no such thing" as a no-deal Brexit.
The Brexiteer said "we should have one last stab" at negotiating a deal with the European Union, but added that "if it doesn't happen, we will walk away and they will probably get much more badly hurt than we will."
He said: "I think there is a good motive for saying 'let's try and do that deal', but if not, we'll have a World Trade Organisation deal.
"All this stuff about no-deal, there is no such thing as a no-deal, there are WTO rules out there."
Nigel Farage continued: "The point is, everyone's trying to confuse this with economic arguments.
"The vote was a political debate.
"We voted leave.
"I feel more strongly about this now than I did at the time of the referendum back in June 2016.
"And that's because of the way the politicians have behaved.
"It's despicable in my view."
