Nigel Farage clashed angrily with the BBC’s Andrew Marr, accusing him of being ‘in denial’ of a ‘sea change’ in British politics, for focusing on his previous statements.
It made for uncomfortable viewing as the two men talked across each other, the interviewer refusing to stop asking questions and the politician angrily denouncing the exchange as ‘ludicrous’.
Arguing that examining its leader was the ‘only way to look at the Brexit Party in the round at the moment’, Mr Marr asked: ‘Do you still want to replace the NHS with a private insurance system?’
Mr Farage replied: ‘I never did, I would like to take the burden off the NHS.’
He added quickly: ‘But if you want to go back, this is really very boring isn’t it.
‘All you want to do is go back to stuff from years ago. Why don’t we talk about now in British politics.
‘Why don’t we talk about the sea-change that is going on out there’, said Mr Farage, precipitating a tense several minutes as broadcaster and politician spoke across each other and both refused to back down.
