Nigel Farage’s response to the London attack is just peak Nigel Farage

Exactly what we'd expect

Exactly what we’d expect of him…

Nigel Farage has indicated that he blames multiculturalism for the recent attack on Westminster.

Wednesday’s attack left four people dead, including a police officer and the man believed to be behind the attack, Khalid Masood.  40 others were injured, some seriously.

The former UKIP leader has said that immigration has created a “fifth column” of terror supporters in western societies and he places the blame for the attack at the hands of previous governments.

Speaking on Fox News, Mr Farage said: “The idea that this whole country is united, which is what we are hearing from our leaders, I’m not sure is true.

“I think the British people want some answers from our leaders as to what they are now going to do,” he continued. “I do actually think that the moment has come for us to actually point the blame. What these politicians have done in the space of just 15 years may well affect the way we live in this country over the next 100 years.”

Farage also brought up the topic of multiculturalism to Tucker Carlson on Fox News, which he says has led to divided communities in the UK.

“The problem with multiculturalism is that it leads to divided communities,” Farage said. “It’s quite different to multi-racialism. That’s fine, that can work very happily and extremely well. But we’ve finished up with very divided communities.

“I’m sorry to say that we have now a fifth column living inside these European countries. Surely an American audience seeing this horrendous thing happening in Westminster should start to say to itself that when Donald Trump tries to put in place vetting measures, he is doing it to protect your country.

“Frankly, all those people out protesting in Fifth Avenue in New York and elsewhere need to have a good, long hard think about what they are doing.”

Farage added: “If you open your door to uncontrolled immigration from Middle Eastern countries, you are inviting in terrorism.”
