NIGEL FARAGE has criticized Boris Johnson for his manipulation of Brexit to gain power and said the population increase has affected the quality of life of Britons.

Speaking to Dan Wootton on GB News, Mr Farage took aim at the Tory government’s mishandling of Brexit.

Earlier this week, Clare Foges wrote in The Times: ‘I am deeply concerned about the huge numbers that are being added to our population every year…overall our population is set to increase by another six million by 2041, overtaking Germany as the most populous nation in Europe by mid-century.”

Nigel Farage said: “I have been saying for years that the rapid increase in the size of the UK population is having a direct impact on people’s lives.

“Whether it’s smart highways…lack of access to GP appointments…whether it’s because you can’t enroll your child in the local primary school… .because no one anticipated this level of population increase.”

Mr Farage said: “What Johnson has done as Prime Minister is not just to open up EU immigration to the rest of the world… but to lower the barriers to entry.

“Anyone now earning £20,000 a year or the equivalent is welcome to come to Britain in unlimited numbers from anywhere in the world.

“Here’s the truth: we got screwed.”
