Ten questions for Farage

Posted on

I keep wanting to hear journalists ask Farage real questions about what the Brexit Party stands for. Instead of letting him rant about the failure of democracy and the betrayal,of politicians - which are untrue on the issues he refers to - I wish they would just ask rhings like this:

  1. How will you deal with the Northern Ireland border? 
  2. What trade deal do you want with Europe?
  3. How will you manage a trade deal with the USA when they say none is possible if there is a hard border in Northern Ireland?
  4. What EU law are you going to repeal if we Brexit as you wish? Would that have also been possible under May’s deal?
  5. Why do you want to use WTO rules when no one else in the world does?
  6. You know that the WTO is a seriously discredited organisation, don’t you? Why do you want to use its rule?
  7. No deal is technically impossible, as I am sure you know. If we say there are no rules the reality is everyone else will impose their rules on us. How are you going to manage that?
  8. How are you going to manage the disruption of a Hard Brexit?
  9. How many people will die in the UK because a Hard Brexit will deny them the drugs they need?
  10. Every credible organisation offering a Brexit forecast says it will cost UK jobs. How are you going to replace them?

You get my drift.

Why is no one asking?
