Nigel Farage claims migrant sex attacks will be nuclear bomb of EU referendum campaign



Farage also called the Prime Minister ‘Dishonest Dave’ and said the Tory leader’s integrity was being questioned. The possibility of migrant sex attacks on women will be the nuclear bomb of the EU referendum campaign, according to Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

The Brexit campaigner raised concerns over safety for women as an issue for voters to consider.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, he also called the Prime Minister Dishonest Dave and said the Conservative Party leader’s integrity was being questioned.

In a live ITV programme on Tuesday, Mr Farage will take questions from a studio audience to discuss the referendum. David Cameron will also appear.

Mr Farage made headlines during the general election campaign last year when, during a TV debate, he claimed the cost of drugs for foreign HIV patients should instead be spent on cancer drugs for deserving Britons.

The nuclear bomb this time would be about Cologne, he said.

In January, reports emerged of allegations that hundreds of women were groped, robbed and intimated at the German city’s central station on New Year’s Eve.

“There are some very big cultural issues, Mr Farage said.

Asked whether mass sex attacks like those in Cologne could occur in the UK, he said: It depends if they get EU passports. It depends if we vote for Brexit or not. It is an issue.

Mr Farage also said that voters believe the Prime Minister did not keep his promises to cut migration and renegotiate the UK’s terms of membership of the EU.

He said: “He is ‘Dishonest Dave’. The honesty and straightforwardness of the Prime Minister are now being questioned.”
