‘Couldn’t make it up’ Farage issues dire Brexit warning to Tories over leadership chaos
Mr Farage predicted that the candidates most likely to win a general election would not make it to the final two.
The GB News presenter said Kemi Badenoch would be “hugely popular” with Tory members, who will choose the next leader out of the last two candidates.
But Mr Farage said the former equalities minister has “very little chance” of reaching the final stage.
The Brexiteer questioned Rishi Sunak’s appeal in the Red Wall, adding: “I’m quite sure he would leave the Conservatives to a resounding election defeat at the next election.”
And he said Penny Mordaunt’s “inconsistencies have proved to be her undoing”.
Mr Farage said Foreign Secretary Liz Truss looks set to make the final two and go on to win the contest.
Writing in the Telegraph, the GB News host said: “Just think of it. A Remain-voting, former card-carrying and conference-speaking member of Liberal Democrats, who once endorsed Republicanism, a woman who voted for May’s disastrous deal three times, will likely lead the Conservative Party and post-Brexit Britain.
“You simply couldn’t make it up. It is possible that she now believes in dealing with the Northern Ireland protocol and genuine conservatism, but I doubt it. All I see here is a careerist. How did it come to this?”
In a warning, Mr Farage said the Conservative Party was “in much bigger trouble than it understands”.
He added: “If only Boris Johnson had told the truth and fulfilled his manifesto pledges. Alas he did not.”
Mr Farage’s comments come after the five remaining Tories in the leadership race – Mr Sunak, Ms Truss, Ms Mordaunt, Ms Badenoch and Tom Tugendhat – clashed last night in the latest televised debate.
The next round of voting is due today to whittle the candidates down to four.
End of the euro: Germany on life support as fears of riots and political instability grow
Speaking about the problems facing the eurozone, Mr Macleod said: “The euro system and its currency are descending into crisis.
“Comprised of the ECB and the National Central Banks, the system is over its head in balance sheet debt, and it is far from clear how that can be resolved.”
He said that the issue has sent Germany’s economy into crisis, warning that the country may see “riots and growing political instability” as a result.
Russia has ordered “a significant number” of warships further east away from Crimea, Kyiv says.
The move saw Vladimir Putin’s vessels head to the port city of Novorossiysk in southern Russia, after Ukrainian stocks of longer-range missile systems were boosted by Western allies.
The expert explained: “The euro is sliding.
“Markets can see that all the ECB is doing is talking the talk and otherwise is frozen into inaction.
