Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage has told Westmonster that he believes law and order is set to become a bigger issue in British politics.
Speaking to Michael Heaver on today’s show for the Westmonster News Podcast, Farage was asked what issue he thinks is set to become more central in UK politics.
Farage responded by saying: “Law and order. The sheer extent to which now people are regularly victims of crimes and yet they now have got to the point where they hardly even bother to report them. There has been a massive explosion in crime.
“It manifests itself in all sorts of different ways. Some of its physical violent assault. Some of its theft. Some of its fraud.
“If I think about my friends and family over the last three or four years. The numbers that have been victims of crime. I’m talking 70% – 80% of people I know have in some way – it could be very, very tidily – but in some way have been victims of crime.
“I think you reach a point where people realise that actually their quality of life is deteriorating to simply the most astonishing degree. So yes I think how we deal with law and order and yes the social problems within society that do help lead to some of this, is very, very important.”
