Nigel Farage in an interview on the Daily Politics blasted what he describes as ‘crackpot conspiracists’ for suggesting that Putin or Russia fiddled in the 2016 Presidential Election or the EU Referendum. Nigel stated “Never have I seen any evidence that Russia in any way, played a significant role in the UK referendum. The answer is a big NO.
“There is a crackpot conspiracy theory that Brexit and Trump could only have happened because of some extraordinary outside external event. It couldn’t have possibly have been ordinary people making their minds up rejecting the European Union and rejecting the democrats and their all looking, desperately for some excuse to explain what happened”.
