Former British politician Nigel Farage
Former British politician Nigel Farage has claimed the Northern Ireland Protocol was not necessary and should never have been agreed to.
Mr Farage was one of the loudest voices for a ‘leave’ vote in the European Union referendum in the UK, which took place five years ago today.
Mr Farage previously led UKIP and The Brexit Party, and is also a former MEP.
The broadcaster told Newstalk Breakfast they should never have signed up to the protocol.
“There were aspects of the deal, and I suppose to be fair to Boris Johnson [former British Prime Minister Theresa] May left him with a very bad hand of cards.
“But we should never, ever have agreed to the protocol.
