A FURIOUS Nigel Farage has been frozen out of cross-party talks which will negotiate Britain leaving the European Union.

The Ukip leader was expected to be central to negotiations in both his role as an MEP and as a prominent Brexit campaigner.

But the official Vote Leave campaign headed by Boris Johnson and Michael Gove was quick to distance itself from Mr Farage.

A senior Vote Leave source said: “Nigel Farage’s involvement has come to an end.”

 

representatives in Brussels, including leader Nigel Farage, should be central to the negotiations.

He said: “It would be lunacy for Nigel Farage not to be involved in our renegotiation.

“Throughout this campaign, despite vicious attacks from all sides including some stupid ‘blue-on-blue’ attacks from Vote Leave administrators, he showed that he was the man in touch with the majority of voters.

“And he is the elected politician with the most experience and knowledge of Brussels and of the Brussels process, having sat on the European Parliament’s Conference of Presidents since 2004.”

He added: “Yes we have achieved our Brexit aims of an independent United Kingdom, but the mandate we were given as MEPs by the voters is to stay there until the day we leave to ensure the best interests of the country.

“That means staying on committees to vote on legislation that will affect the UK whilst we are still members and most importantly, taking a significant role in the renegotiation process which would not be taking place if it wasn’t for Ukip and Nigel Farage.”

It’s unclear when Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty- the two-year formal process by which the UK will leave the EU- will be triggered.

But a cross-party committee is to be created to lead the negotiations as the Prime Minister faces pressure to speed up the divorce talks.

Jane Collins MEP, who has been campaigning for Brexit for 18 years, said she and Mr Hookem “will be breathing down the necks of the people negotiating to make sure they get the best deal for Britain and for our constituents in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire”.

Mr Cameron, who announced his resignation on Friday, said he hopes a new leader will take over in October to deal with negotiations.

The Prime Minister said: “I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months but I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”

But European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said the proposed delay “doesn’t make sense”, and he was backed by foreign ministers of the EU’s six founding members, meeting in Berlin for emergency talks on Britain’s seismic vote.
