D PHILLIPS (Western Telegraph April 24) believes that Nigel Farage is the only one to see the way clearly out of the impasse in which the UK now finds itself.

However, it was Mr Farage who was instrumental in getting us into this mess in the first place.

Do not be fooled by this populist commodity broker turned politician.

Remember, this is a man who made a great deal of money by short-selling the pound just before the Referendum.

He had realised that the Leave vote would probably win and that would devalue the pound.

He had promised the electorate a glorious post-Brexit reached after negotiation with Europe, secure in the knowledge that he would not have to deliver it: he was able to walk away and leave the Government to reconcile the divided country.

Mr Farage only takes his seat in the EU Parliament to cause trouble.

Is this a leader you would wish to follow?
