Mrs James, who has stood as an independent MEP since her ill-fated 18-day reign as Nigel Farage’s successor, was speaking on Radio 4’s Broadcasting House on the eve of the second round of Brexit talks in Brussels.
She was initially full of praise for Brexit Secetary David David Davis’s negotiating position had suggested hs ‘military background’ had helped him “draw the EU strategy out in the open”.
But when pressed further on Brexit she declared: “I don’t think it will ever happen.”
“If we look at what is happening at the moment, the Remain campaign has taken the initiative since the referendum and there is a degree of disorganisation within out current Government.
“I fully believe there is going to be fudge delivered further down the line that won’t be Brexit at all.
“And all the time that the Remain campaign takes the initiative and people become gradually disenfranchised, fed up with seeing all the negotiations aired on a daily basis in the press and the media, it will all deliver effectively a non-Brexit.
“The Leave campaign has to really galvanise its activity.”
