Nigel Farage revealed the astonishing revelations of his meeting with Michel Barnier, as he was interviewed just seconds after leaving the meeting.

The former Ukip leader’s immediate response after speaking with Mr Barnier was that the leading EU official “simply did not understand Brexit”.

Quizzed on how the long-awaited meeting went, Mr Farage said that while he was “unfailingly polite,” Mr Barnier came off as clueless as to why Britain voted to leave the EU.

Speaking just as he left Mr Barnier’s office in Brussels, the Brexiteer told LBC: “We had our meeting with Mr Barnier, who was, as I expected unfailingly, polite.

“But I don’t think he really understands why Brexit happened and completely underestimates the role the open-door immigration plays, almost disbelieving of it, which makes me think the UK government has not really been pressing that line.

“Basically, he admitted that new border controls haven’t even been discussed.”

Afterwards, Mr Farage revealed the most “illuminating answer” from the meeting: “Barnier rather takes the view Brexit was because people had been promised a lot of money for the health service.

“What he really didn’t understand at all was that open door immigration within the EU had been an absolute key driver of this.”
