Nigel Farage claims 750 new houses would have to be built every day to house migrants entering the country

Nigel said nobody talks about the issue because 'these things are not done in polite society at Notting Hill dinner parties'

Nigel Farage has claimed that 750 new houses have to be built every day “just to accommodate new people coming into the country.”

The lack of affordable housing in the UK is a growing issue, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announcing plans to extend the right to buy to tenants of housing association homes in a bid to help.

While MPs also held a five-hour debate in the House of Commons, with levelling up and specifically social housing high up on the agenda.

But speaking during a GB News’ Farage at Large special from Portsmouth, Nigel explained why net migration was not mentioned during the discussions.

Nigel said: “There was a five-hour debate in the house of Commons yesterday on levelling up, housing being a very big part of that.

“At no point in those five hours yesterday or in the speeches given today by Boris Johnson and interviews given by Michael Gove did they mention one factor.

“They keep saying that more houses need to be built and they have to become more affordable.”

He continued: “What nobody will tell you is net migration into Britain means we have to build 750 new houses every day just to accommodate new people coming into the country.

“So you see why the problem is virtually impossible.

“But nobody dares to talk about it because these things are not done in plight society at Notting Hill dinner parties.

“Well I can assure you that I talk about these things on GB News, because they are true.”
