Police probe Nigel Farage over threat to ‘KNIFE’ civil servants post-Brexit (VIDEO)

Police probe Nigel Farage over threat to ‘KNIFE’ civil servants post-Brexit (VIDEO)
Police are investigating Nigel Farage after he told a crowd he will “take a knife” to “overpaid” civil servants after Brexit for “not doing a neutral job.” Farage says he’d meant to say something far less bloodthirsty.

Farage made the comment while speaking at an event at the Neon Theatre in Newport last Saturday. In video footage from the event, Farage can heard saying:

“When the president of the port of Calais and the boss of the port of Dover tell you they’re 100% ready for Brexit in whatever form it comes, I suggest we listen to them and not the overpaid pen pushers in Whitehall who are not doing a neutral job”.

“And once Brexit’s done, we’ll take the knife to them. Alright? Had enough of all of it. Had enough of all of it,” he added.

 Gwent Police opened an investigation after receiving dozens of complaints about what some called“an incitment to murder.” Police responded via Twitter to journalist Carole Cadwalladr, and at least 36 others, to say they were “aware of comments made last week” and were “looking into these allegations”.

I should have said ‘take the axe’, which is a more traditional term for cuts. https://twitter.com/SkyNewsPolitics/status/1177925950702534656

      It’s about time the citizens of the UK stopped deliberately misconstruing statements made by politicians, and wasting the time of the police.

      And Khan condones that and more – “part and parcel”.  Funny how the Tory Party (which has been in power for 9 years) didn’t request any investigation over that.

      No they have said they want all knives to have blunt ends now… that would make a massive difference, NOT.

      Thats so that they CAN do what they do and that WE cant say what they do is unacceptable and they need to be hung for it.. Good scam demockery, you can choose from teams supplied by the same cabl, nothing changes just marches on to slavery and dystopia for those allowed to avoid the coming cull. Their Agenda 2030 give you a clue to time lne.

  • Wow. If Gwent Police can’t get their heads around this, then we’ll know that the entire establishment is compromised. Gwent Police should examine the complainant and consider whether it is worth charging them with wasting police time. Use the term “scalpel” next time Nigel.

    UK politics is just a joke. It’s totally clear it’s the people against parliament. Absolutely anything Brexit politicians say is forensically examined to find any excuse to paint Brexit, literally leaving the EU as some kind of criminal act.

    “Taking a knife” to Whitehall pen-pushers means firing them. It seems that the British people can no longer do English nowadays (particularly the Europhiles).

    So the PC crowd are going to tear a strip out of Farage, roast him alive, cut him down to size, make his head roll, and utterly destroy him just for using another stock metaphor?
