Keir Starmer becoming Prime Minister could lead to the UK re-joining the EU’s single market, Nigel Farage has warned.
In an LBC interview, Mr Starmer pledged, if he was prime minister, to “make Brexit work” and “make sure that we’ve got a better deal that works” for UK exporters facing Brexit red tapes.
To Mr Farage, his comments leave no doubt.
Mr Farage told GB News viewers: “Well if you want to interpret what he’s just said, he said we should re-join the EU’s single market. He’s made it pretty clear that if he becomes prime minister, that’s what he wants to do.
“And be in no doubt, the Liberal Democrats want to do the same thing. The SNP wants to do the same thing.
“They want to take us to what would be effectively Brexit in name only. But it’s not just them.
“There are voices within the Conservative Party, one of those who regret this bitterly is Daniel Hannan. Now, of course, Lord Hannan, and he wrote. He wrote this Sunday: ‘Staying in the single market, or large parts of it, would have saved us a lot of trouble.'”
