Nigel Farage calls on Suella Braverman to join Reform

Nigel Farage has said he would welcome former Home Secretary Suella Braverman into Reform.

He also said he did not believe that the Conservatives would ever withdraw the UK from the ECHR and said Ms Braverman ‘should ask herself whether she’s in the right party.’

Nigel Farage said: “Let’s be honest, there is no Conservative Party. They stand up and pretend to be Conservative occasionally but always govern like liberals

“Are we, in Brexit Britain, a self-governing, self-determining nation? Probably not.

“You can say Labour are worse than the Tories, and they probably are, but the Tories are pretty awful. They won’t even contemplate, as a party, leaving the ECHR which we have to do because that will be true to the spirit of Brexit.

“Labour introduced all of this concept of the Human Rights Act 1998, incidentally something which Cherie Blair benefited from financially, and the Conservatives have done nothing to change it.

“It’s all well and good for Suella to come out now, as a former Home Secretary, to say we should do this. Maybe Suella should be asking herself whether she’s in the right party.

“Richard Tice runs Reform, I am merely the honorary president: I am non-executive, I have no fiduciary responsibility so it’s not up to me.

“But would I like to see Suella join Reform? Of course I would.”
