LBC can clarify that a comment made by Nigel Farage on his show last night is not accurate.

Nigel quoted a passage from what he said was in Article 50, which read: “The rights and obligations deriving from the Treaties would therefore extinguish”.

However, we can clarify that this passage is not from Article 50, but from a briefing note sent to MEPs in February 2016 to help explain Article 50.

That briefing note contains a disclaimer, which reads: “The content of this document is the sole responsibility of the author and any opinions expressed therein do not necessarily represent the official position of the European Parliament.”
