NIGEL Farage has hit out at the British court system for blocking an appeal by the Evans’ family to take their sick child to Italy for palliative care.
The Pope has backed the families ordeal and Alfie’s dad Tom has been given Italian citizenship to take Alfie to Italy – but the British legal system has blocked their request.
Moved by the prayers and immense solidarity shown little Alfie Evans, I renew my appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted.

Speaking on his LBC radio show Mr Farage said: “The parents were challenging a ruling that they cannot take their son it Italy for treatment.
Farage went on: “Do you know, they turned off the life support machine yesterday, he could have been in Italy by now.”
“I’m not saying the treatment would have worked,” added Farage but he agreed that Alfies’ parents should have had ‘the right’ to make these decisions and not ‘the medical establishment closing ranks backed up by the court.’
‘I think the whole thing is disgraceful.’ added Farage.
