NIGEL FARAGE has said that if Prime Minister Theresa May allows Brexit to be watered down or halted by the likes of George Soros, Britain will be thrust into its “gravest constitutional crisis since World War Two”.
Mr Farage, 53 told Reuters that Brexit was now in danger of being sunk by the establishment and added that Britain was being ‘humiliated’ by the EU.
“The best-case scenario right now under our current pathetic leadership is Brexit in name only – that is about as good as it gets.”
“At worst they are going to make us fight the whole thing again,”
“That is a significant betrayal of what many millions voted for.”
Farage dismissed worries from major banks such as Goldman Sachs that the City of London could lose business as a result of Brexit and cast the European Union as a doomed German-dominated experiment in European integration.
“The real crunch point is ultimately going to be the meaningful vote in the House of Commons on whatever deal we get and that is the point at which it is not impossible to see this country plunged into a constitutional crisis,” Farage said.
“The chances of this being the case get higher with every week that goes by,” he said. “If the deal is rejected on a confidence motion, then you are looking at general elections or you are looking at another referendum.”
Among those who have called for Brexit to be halted are former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Goldman Sachs Group CEO, Lloyd Blankfein and Billionaire George Soros, who made a huge fortune by betting against the British pound in 1992.
Asked about the three, Farage laughed: “If I was drafting a horror movie of what remainers look like, well here they are.”
Mr Farage also praised Donald Trump and said he was doing very well as president and described allegations of links to Moscow as “hysteria”.
“This Russia inquiry is one of the biggest hoaxes we have seen in our lifetimes,” Farage said, scoffing at claims about his own links to Russia or Russia’s supposed role in Brexit.
“It is complete and utter total complete rubbish,” he said. “I may have drunk a vodka once but I have never been to Russia.”
Farage said that instead of Russia, Soros should be investigated.

“There does need to be an investigation into the extent that George Soros is undermining politics right across the Western world,” Farage said.
“This is the biggest political campaigning organisation the world has ever seen and most people are in denial about it.”
He dismissed criticism from some British commentators that accusing Soros of a conspiracy had shades of anti-Semitism: “What? Do we cant criticise the man because he happened to come from a Jewish background? He is not Jewish – he is an atheist.”
