‘Absolute baloney!’ Furious Farage fires back at Ed Balls for claims Brexit was NOT CLEAR

NIGEL FARAGE launched a scathing attack on Ed Balls after the former MP claimed the referendum was not clear about leaving the single market and customs union.

The Brexiteer snapped at Mr Balls insisting his remark was “absolute baloney” as the pair rowed.

Speaking on BBC’s This Week, the former Labour Party politician claimed the public were not aware that a vote to leave was a vote to leave the European markets.

He said: “I think at the moment, public opinion wants the job done.

“But, the idea that Nigel was saying in the film, that people voted for a hard Brexit is just untrue.

“In fact many people on the leave campaign were saying that they wanted to stay in the single market.”

Farage interrupted Mr Balls as he raged: “No they weren’t, absolutely baloney.”

BBC host Andrew Neil pressed the former Labour politician over his statement, but Mr Balls failed to name anyone who said Britain could leave the EU and stay in the European markets.

Farage interjected reiterating the EU referendum terms were made clear to the British public.

“Every single leading player on both remain and leave could not have been clearer, all the ay through the referendum,” he said.

“That a vote to leave was also a vote to leave the single market. Nobody was in any doubt about that.”

The presenter backed up the former Ukip leader insisting that was the message portrayed by David Cameron and George Osborne before the referendum.

Mr Balls still did not accept that people were clear with what they were voting for in the referendum.

He added: “I don’t think that is what the public heard. I think they heard leaving and remaining.”

In a package on the show, Farage claimed Brexit was a “mess” but still needed to be delivered, or there will “be hell to pay”.

“Unluckily the outcome of Mrs May’s elections gamble means that she now has Remoaner MPs on her own backbenches who would like to prevent the will of the people,” he said.

“In short it’s a mess, the point is the public voted in a free and fair referendum for Brexit. If it’s not delivered, it will be hell to pay.”
