EU referendum: Voters have ‘had enough of threats’ – Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage

Voters have “had enough of being threatened” by the prime minister and chancellor, prominent Leave campaigner Nigel Farage has said.

Remain campaigners argue the UK will suffer a recession if it opts to leave the European Union.

But the UKIP leader hinted on BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show that people had begun to see through the “scare stories”.

He added: “I think collectively people are beginning to put two fingers up to the political class.”

Mr Farage also downplayed the impact Brexit could have on the value of sterling after the FTSE closed down 116 points on Friday.

‘So what?’

He said: “I did work in this area for 20 years, I know a little bit more about it than most people.

“Sterling is up since March. Since Brexit became a possibility sterling is up and FTSE is exactly the same level it was in March and what happened on Friday were very bad economic figures from America and the fact that our growth forecasts in Britain have been downgraded from 2.5% to 2% and that our borrowing is still out of control.
