‘Most deserving since Churchill!’ Nigel Farage should ABSOLUTELY get knighted - poll

Up to 69 percent of respondents said the Brexit Party leader absolutely deserved a knighthood for his role in the EU referendum and Brexit, amounting to 21,883 of the vote in the Express.co.uk poll. A total of 31 percent disagreed and said he did not deserve the honour. which was 9,634 of the vote. A further 306 participants clicked the ‘don’t know’ option.

Data was collected today on Monday December 23, with up to 31,823 taking part from 10.30am to 5pm.

Comments widely reflected the result of the poll.

One said: “Nigel Farage is the most worthy candidate for a knighthood in years. Without his relentless pressure the establishment would never have allowed us to escape the EU superstate.”

Another said: “I don’t agree with them but if they are going to continue with this outdated medieval system I cannot see anyone more deserving for championing for the people of this country to have their say, he’s had more influence on British politics than anyone else in our recent history and finally we might see some changes at last that have been long overdue.”

A third added: “Nigel deserves a place in Cabinet more than he does a knighthood. The man, single handedly, has taken us out of the EU.

“The man deserves far far more than a mere knighthood.”

Another said: “The people of this country won't forget Nigel.”

Another added: “The man who saved us from the EU? You bet.”

The member of the hardline European Research Group (ERG), also called on former father of the House of Commons and ardent Remainer Ken Clarke, to be given a knighthood or a peerage.

During the turbulent election campaign, the Brexit Party leader claimed he had been offered a peerage just three days before standing down candidates in Tory held seats - something the Conservative party has denied.

Mr Farage, when questioned on the possibility of a peerage, the Brexit Party leader said he could not be bought and stated he would turn-down any political honour.

He said: “Ridiculous – the thought they can buy me, a high-paid job. But I’m not interested, I don’t want to know.”

Mr Farage withdrew 317 Brexit Party candidates from standing in the election - which helped the Tories storm to an 80-seat majority in the House of Commons.
