Nigel Farage Q&A: Five things we learnt at his Telegraph Lunch Hour

Asked if the 2020 US election was stolen from Donald Trump, Mr Farage responded: “I wouldn’t say stolen… We should 100 per cent scrap postal votes, go back to the pre-2001 system.

“In France you vote for a president, you have to turn up on a Sunday… The votes are divided up into physical piles in front of observers, counted, there are no voting machines.”

Farage wants a second referendum (on the ECHR)

Challenged on whether there should be a referendum on a cap on immigration, Mr Farage said a referendum that would be “more useful” was a poll on continued membership of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

A number of top Tories have called on Mr Sunak to quit the agreement, claiming it prevents Britain from having a sovereign immigration policy.

“I urged them again and again to include the ECHR when it comes to the Brexit negotiations,” Mr Farage said. “Boris was never going to do that, it was no interest to him. If you have a referendum on that…

“I’d love a referendum on the House of Lords. Now that would be good sport. Should we replace it with a mostly elected second chamber?”
