Nigel Farage told Australian television Britain was facing France “on all fronts” amid wrangling over migrants and post-Brexit fishing deals. With Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson at odds over smugglers using small boats to transport people across the English Channel, Mr Farage argued that the UK was facing ‘a constant worsening with France for at least 1,000 years “.
“And then they were surprised that millions came over so they have their own issues with that.
“We have battles with the French on all fronts.
“Look, we’ve had a constant worsening with France for at least 1,000 years.
Mr. Farage then praised Australia’s management of migrant boats from Indonesia.
He said: “Indonesia did not welcome the boats in 2012.
“But Australia has towed them over there, and that’s exactly what the UK needs to do.
“He will be condemned by all of his friends at the climate change club and frankly I don’t think he has the guts to do it. “
“And the countries… the member states themselves are not supposed to really engage bilaterally.
“And they’re all coming out of this cycle right now.
“Out of their own frustration at the inability of the Commission to tackle this problem. “
