WATCH– Labour’s Andy Burnham: Let’s Send Nigel Farage Back To France!
Former Labour leadership candidate and Mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham made a rather startling quip on the BBC’s Question time this week.
Appearing alongside argot James MP, Howard Davies, Munira Mirza and Dustin Lance Black on the panel, Burnham got a rather large round of applause for suggesting the former UKIP Leader should be sent ‘back to France’, which is an interesting claim considering that Nigel is, in fact, not from France.
Burnham said: “As to what we might send back in return [for a Brexit deal] and I was just thinking about that.
“There’s somebody that will fit in there, somebody who maybe likes a drink, likes the sound of his own voice and somebody whose name might suggest French ancestry…
“Let’s send Nigel Farage back to France!”
What do you reckon? Should we be sending Nige “back” to France or is Andy just a bit of a pompous establishment politician? Let us know in the comments!
