Nigel Farage denies having violated the blocking rules after Lib Dem chief Ed Davey called POLICE about allegations that he had visited the pub on Super Saturday less than 14 days after he returned from the United States
- The leader of the Brexit party had drunk his first beer when the pubs were allowed to open again
- But after the posting, critics posted the question of whether he should be quarantined
- The incumbent Lib Dem leader asked the Kent police to investigate whether he had broken any rules
- Mr. Farage said in an early social media post that he was in America on June 20
- The former UKIP leader insisted that he followed rules and did nothing wrong
Nigel Farage has denied lifting the block after being accused of visiting a pub on Super Saturday – less than two weeks after returning from a trip to the United States – and the leader of the Lib Dems reported him to the police .
Mr. Farage, 56, said he returned from America two weeks ago and tested negative for the virus after quarantine.
The leader of the Brexit party proudly posted a picture of himself at lunchtime holding a beer in his hand and declaring "12 noon, first customer in". I love it.
However, critics charged the former UKIP leader and said he was in America on June 20 and asked how he could be released from quarantine.
The series took a surprising turn minutes later when acting Lib Dem leader Ed Davey reported him to the Kent police and asked them to investigate.
Nigel Farage had tweeted a picture of himself when he was enjoying his first beer in a pub, but it got bad when Lib Dem leader Ed Davey asked the police to investigate whether he had violated the quarantine rules
This led to an immediate blow by pro-Brexit activist Farage who insisted that he was back for a fortnight, so it was fine.
He said, “Everyone who screams and screams that I go to the pub.
& # 39; I have been back from the USA for 2 weeks and was tested – the result was negative.
& # 39; I'm sorry to disappoint you. Cheers! & # 39;
Mr. Farage was one of many in England who took the opportunity to go to the pub when they were reopened on "Super Saturday" as part of the lockdown relaxation.
The radio moderator and leader of the Brexit party had posted on his Twitter feed a picture of himself wearing sunglasses in America on June 20.
Mr. Farage had gone to America to assist President Donald Trump in a rally
He proudly posted a picture of himself online wearing sunglasses and giving the thumbs up
He grinned broadly and gave his thumbs up, next to a heading that read "In the United States, just twenty-four hours from Tulsa."
Ed Davey MP, the incumbent leader of the Liberal Democrats, wrote to the Kent police and asked them to investigate whether Mr. Farage had broken the roles.
He said: “There are clearly serious questions for Nigel Farage. His social media posts indicate that he was in America on June 20 and was pictured at a Trump rally that evening.
& # 39; Given the current requirements for visitors returning to the UK to isolate themselves for 14 full days on their return, Nigel Farage appears to be in breach of the quarantine.
& # 39; It is everyone's responsibility to take the blocking requirements seriously to stop the virus from spreading.
"By deciding to go to the pub if it looks like he should have stayed at home, Mr. Farage shows an obvious disregard for the safety of the people in his community."
He had traveled to Oklahoma to attend a Donald Trump rally in Tulsa on June 20.
Quarantine rules in England at the time he returned, even if people test negative, must remain isolated for 14 days.
