GB News: ‘Strategic mess’ Nigel Farage unravels the loopholes in Boris’s stand for Ukraine


While speaking with Dan Wootton, Nigel Farage, 57, former UKIP leader, applauded Mr Johnson’s reaction as compared to the US President Joe Biden, he also highlighted the glaring loopholes in his plan. On Tuesday, Mr Johnson, 57, said the UK will “contribute” to any new NATO deployments if Russia invades Ukraine.

The Prime Minister also told the Commons that Western allies will react “in unison” to any Russian attack on Ukraine by imposing sanctions “heavier than anything we have done before”.

He said: “If Russia invades Ukraine, we would look to contribute to any new NATO deployments to protect our allies in Europe.”

Mr Johnson said the UK has been working with the US and European allies for months to avoid a war, by using dialogue and deterrence in the form of sanctions.

Talking about the sanctions, Mr Farage said: “Where Johnson’s argument falls into pieces is on sanctions.

Talking about the sanctions, Mr Farage said: “Where Johnson’s argument falls into pieces is on sanctions.

“If we put tough sanctions, if the West puts tough sanctions on Russia, he can overnight close down German manufacturing.

“So I think when it comes to the sanctions game, yes, of course, we can make it tougher for them to use dollars, of course we can stop them using banks’ international clearing system or the rest of it.

“But they can close down German industry and that’s the mess, that’s the strategic mess.”

He continued: “As somebody, who is accused of being in the pay of Russia, Hilliary Clintons and other made it clear- Brexit, Trump was all because we were handling above Putin, it turns put actually it’s Germany that have bowed down to Putin not the Brexiteers or the Trump administration.”

A news report by the New York Times stated in recent days Germany, Europe’s largest and richest democracy which is strategically situated at the crossroads between East and West, has stood out more for what it will not do than for what it is doing.

It stated: “Germany’s evident hesitation to take forceful measures has fueled doubts about its reliability as an ally — reversing the dynamic with the United States in recent years — and added to concerns that Moscow could use German wavering as a wedge to divide a united European response to any Russian aggression.”
