Nigel Farage’s adorable Brexit note from boy, 10, divides Twitter - ‘Didn’t happen!’

The Brexit Party leader shared a note from a 10-year-old boy called Matthew, who expressed his “gratitude” to the Brexiteer for sticking up for the 52 percent of Leave voters. The schoolboy said: “Without you the Leave voters would have nobody to represent their opinions. “The majority of MPs in Parliament want to ignore democracy and overturn the referendum result.”

“At my school they try and brainwash us to be pro-EU but me and my friend Jim (fellow Leaver) know their tricks.”

Matthew signed the letter off with “good luck”.

Mr Farage said of the note: “An amazing letter received from fellow leaver Matthew, who is 10 years old.”

Many of Mr Farage’s 1.35million followers adored the letter.

But others could not help but question its authenticity.

One social media user said: “How many 10-year-olds are called ‘Jim’ in 2019?”

Another said: “Dear Mr Nigel, It’s sad to think some people actually believe this. From John. Age 2 years 3 weeks and 4 sleeps (nearly).”

Another Twitter user posted a picture of 61-year-old actor Steve Buscemi wearing a cap on backwards and the caption: “Matthew rocking up at school on Monday morning greeting Jim.”

Another said: “It’s remarkable how a 10 year-old understands the complexities of Brexit and is able to compose a letter praising you, while being delicate enough not to go so far as to call you a superhero.

“So remarkable in fact, it didn’t happen.”

The letter comes after Mr Farage said unless Boris Johnson, the front-runner in the Tory leadership race, calls a general election and opts for a no deal Brexit the Conservatives will not have the support of his party.

He said an election pact would deliver a “massive” majority.

Donald Tusk today raged that the Tory leadership contest was “wasting” time on the six-month Brexit delay, angering Leave voters.

The President of the European Council made the bitter comments to BBC News presenter Ros Atkins, who asked if the UK had, in his eyes, wasted its extension to the EU exit date, now Halloween.

Mr Tusk responded resolutely: “When it comes to Brexit as such - yes, I’m afraid that you wasted time.”

Brexiteers poured onto Twitter to blast Mr Tusk’s savage put-down.

One user wrote: “Every time Tusk opens his mouth it becomes clear why 17.4m people voted to leave the EU in the actual #peoplevote @BBCNews.”

Another echoed the sentiment, saying: “When he speaks like this about Britain, I find it increasingly amazing that as many as 16 million people thought “Yea, more of that, please”.

A third raged: “That’s about right - no compromise as usual from the EU.”
