NIGEL FARAGE has lambasted a radio caller who admitted he wanted to reverse the Brexit decision during a fiery exchange over the European Court of Justice.

The former Ukip leader ripped into LBC caller Will from Evesham after he insisted he wanted to “look at the facts” before admitting he would support another EU referendum.

The Brexiteer let rip after he was questioned on whether the UK had “common values” with the European Union.

The MEP replied: “In many ways we do but so what? We have common values with many parts of the world.”

But Will hit back and called Mr Farage’s argument “entirely fatuous”.

He said: “Your argument is entirely fatuous, that somehow the European Parliament and the British Parliament are somehow mutually exclusive, they’re absolutely not.”

The politician then asked if the caller would be happy for Britain to be under the jurisdiction of “foreign courts” after Brexit.

Will responded: “It hasn’t happened yet, Nigel! And this is another fatuous argument dividing people into Remoaners… look at the facts Nigel.”

But Mr Farage quipped: “We voted Brexit Will, we voted Brexit! Do you want to reverse Brexit Will?”

“I want to look at the facts,” the caller replied before politician blasted: “You’re not answering me!”

Will then admitted: “Absolutely, I would give the people another vote.”

Having the last say on the heated argument, Mr Farage said: “Thank you Will from Evesham, thank you very much indeed. Will who does not accept [Brexit] – we got there in the end!”

The clash comes after Mr Farage attacked demands by the European Union, insisting the European Union’s highest court retains jurisdiction over all British trials until after the EU divorce.

It comes after chief negotiator Michel Barnier said the ECJ must also have jurisdiction to guarantee citizens’ rights.

During a speech on Wednesday, Mr Barnier also saw fit to address comments made by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who told Brussels to “go whistle” for the so-called divorce bill.

Asked about his comments, Mr Barnier said: “I’m not hearing any whistling. Just the clock ticking.”
