Referendum explicitly mentioned my knighthood, insists Farage

NIGEL Farage has claimed that the UK overwhelmingly voted for him to get a knighthood in June last year, and losers should ‘get over it’.

The former UKIP leader says that everyone fully understood that, when asked if Britain should remain in the EU, answering ‘No’ would make him Sir Nigel Farage.

He said: “When will these elites stop trying to overturn democracy?

“I suppose they’ll be saying that Britain didn’t vote for my statue in Parliament Square next, or Kent being renamed Farageshire ‘wasn’t on the ballot paper’.

“No, last year Britons voted for hard Brexit, the abolition of the House of Lords, a 41 per cent rise in hate crime and a ‘K’ for Nigel.”

Farage added: “Though I am still anti-establishment. Actually even more so.”
