Nigel Farage 'docked half MEP salary' to reclaim misused public funds

Brexit news- Michel Barnier and Sarah Wollaston

Kent MPs have rejected calls by the former leader of UKIP Nigel Farage for a second referendum on Brexit.

Estimates from Nomura's United Kingdom economics team, led by George Buckley, suggest that sterling would pop up to around $1.40 (still around 5-6% lower than pre-referendum) should a second vote be announced.

However, she said that in cases where an MEP "cannot provide any justification or proof" that their funded assistants are doing work directly related to the European mandate of the MEP, "then the administration may recover the money by withholding part of the MEP's salary".

"Promises before the referendum like £350m extra per week for the NHS have evaporated and it looks like the Conservative government is going to give billions of pounds to Brussels for worse trade arrangements than we have now". That's what you are famous for, patronising people.

"They understood very well what they were voting for".

Europhiles seized on the remarks, which Mr Farage later backtracked on, hailing them as a "game changer" in their crusade to keep Britain in the EU. "There is no point in having another referendum".

One person said: "I think a decision has been made and we have to stick by it".

"That's on course to happen in 2019".

Tottenham vs Everton - Betting Tips and Predictions
Everton have gone nine league and cup games without a win away to Spurs since November 2008, drawing three times and losing six. Pochettino said he was not anxious by the club's potential inactivity, however, adding: "I am confident always".

Helen Whately, MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, said: "I was really surprised to hear Nigel Farage calling for a second referendum. Nigel Farage can say this or that but for me we have to deliver on what the public voted for". It sounds like he's trying to get back into the headlines again.

Two of Britain's most prominent Brexit campaigners have endorsed a re-run of the referendum as a way to stop European Union supporters from trying to water down or even halt Brexit.

The ex-UKIP leader had said another vote would put an end to "whinging and whining" by opponents of Brexit and "kill it off" for a generation - before later backtracking saying he did not wish for a second referendum - but feared one may be inevitable.

"I believe they would prefer I and other politicians focused our minds and actions on the matters of importance; health, education and improving our road, rail and digital access as this is what will make a difference to them".

The letter cites a collection of studies that show that as little as 3 hours spent on smartphones every day can harm children's physical and mental well-being.

When approached for comment, Mr Farage told the Telegraph he was a victim of "arbitrary law".
