Nigel Farage has pointed out that he was warning about the threat of homegrown Jihadism in Britain way back in 2015.
It comes after numerous newspapers reported over the weekend that intelligence officers identified 23,000 jihadists extremists living ion Britain.
About 3,000 of those are currently judged to pose a threat and are being monitored by police and intelligence services.
The worrying figure has been described by Nigel as “profoundly depressing” as he has been talking about this subject for some time.
In 2015, he held a speech warning about the rise of homegrown jihadism in the UK.
In the clip above, Nigel explains how for years he has been “campaigning hard on this point”.
