Ex-UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, has warned the current political establishment is not prepared for the upset that will occur if immigration is not dealt with
The charismatic politician is seen by many as the man behind Brexit.
Mr Farage campaigned for 25 years to get the United Kingdom out of the European Union. His dreams came true on 23rd June last year.
A major reason why 17.4 million people voted to leave is to give the UK the power to control its borders and become a self-governing, sovereign democracy once again.
In an article written in the Telegraph by Mr Farage, he warns that the establishment has seen nothing yet if immigration is not dealt with.

He added: “Perhaps even worse still was another news story over the past few weeks that gained almost no attention at all. David Wood, who was head of immigration enforcement at the Home Office until 2015, revealed that on a bad year up to 250,000 illegal immigrants either entered the country or overstayed on their visas. Yes, that’s right – a quarter of a million.”
I have to agree with Nigel. If the government fails to deal with immigration, the establishment is in for an almighty shock.
