Nigel Farage Is Overlooked For Knighthood: “I Haven’t Got Honour Of Any Kind, I Am Not A Remainer,”
Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has claimed he has been overlooked for a knighthood because of his role in helping to take Britain out of the European Union in 2016.

The politician who was called “Mr Brexit” for his role in Brexit said he was being left out of the New Year’s Honours list because of his political allegiances.

“Of course I have not got an honour of any kind, I am not a Remainer,” he told the Telegraph newspaper. Farage confirmed that he will not be receiving a knighthood from the Queen.

“Every one of them got CBEs, they got knighthoods, quite extraordinary. I have got a Brexmas present far more important than the honour,”, Farage added:

“A campaign to get back British blue passports has been successful. I held that passport up every day [during the referendum campaign] so I couldn’t be happier.”

Earlier, the paper claimed that Ukip’s former MP Douglas Carswell blocked attempts to give Farage a knighthood at last year’s New Year honours.

Farage’s chances of winning an honour were apparently mocked by Mr Carswell who said he should be given an award “for services to headline writers”.

Farage fired back saying that the comments were an indication that Mr Carswell was “consumed with jealousy” and has a “desire to hurt me”.

Previously, Ukip’s former leader Lord Pearson of Rannoc attempted to get Farage a honor in the wake of last year’s EU referendum but he dropped the plans when it became clear that Farage would have to leave his £250,000 a year job as an MEP to sit in the House of Lords.
