The former Ukip leader has criticised the party’s current leader, Gerard Batten, for trying to bring in Tommy Robinson, a far-right anti-Muslim activist. Farage’s statement came at the end of September, as the Eurosceptic party was opening its annual conference with a range of new policies targeting Muslims. “I’m less than impressed with the current direction in which we’re going,” Farage told the Press Association. “It devalues, undermines many of the incredible achievements.”
