Nigel Farage declares Rwanda failure 'will guarantee a Labour/Lib Dem coalition at the next election'

Nigel believes the 'Conservative Government are going to be overwhelmed by this crisis'

Nigel Farage has said the Rwanda immigration delays “will guarantee a Labour, Liberal Democrats and Scottish National Party coalition” for the next election.

The Government acknowledged earlier today that it could be months before any migrants to the UK are sent to Rwanda, with legal challenges highlighted as one of the “variables” affecting the plan.

After that news, Nigel, speaking on GB News’ Dan Wootton Tonight, said: “I think the Conservative Government are going to be overwhelmed by this crisis. This hasn’t gone away.

“There are one million people now on the waiting list for social housing, many of them in Red Wall seats.

“This will guarantee a Labour/Lib Dem/SNP coalition at the next election.

“This issue alone will do it, let alone the economy.”

Speaking on his own show on GB News earlier in the evening, the former Brexit Party leader said the delays are the “best news” for criminals looking to profit from those making the journey over the Channel.

Nigel said: “It could be a huge disincentive for people to cross the English Channel.

“That means deportations to Rwanda will be delayed by several months and that is probably the best news the criminal gangs and traffickers have heard over in Calais and Dunkirk and all those places on the northern French coast.

“Because they can say to people ‘come on, get a move on, you’ve got a few months to do this before they implement it’, the window has got bigger and that as we go into warmer weather and settled seas.

“This threatens to do the most enormous damage to the Government.”
