The Brexit Party leader warned Leave voters the UK “will not truly be free” if Britain and Brussels finally agree to a deal by the end of this year. Writing for the Daily Express, he warned Brexiteers Brexit would not be the “true freedom” that they have “fought for decades”.

He warned the UK would still have “financial liabilities” through the European Investment Bank and would never be free in areas such as state aid.

Mr Farage said: “My own guess is that a deal will be reached in the coming months but one in which we have continued financial liabilities through the European Investment Bank and one in which we will not truly be free in areas such as state aid.

“The year 2020 will be remembered in history as the year we finally left the European Union, but the final shape of our withdrawal looks unlikely to be the true freedom that many of us had fought for decades.”

Speaking about Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal in October, he said it was no better than the agreement reached by his predecessor Theresa May.

He added: “I sat for hours that morning with my lawyer in Brussels and went through the document line-by-line, even memorising some of the articles.

“It was clear that this deal was little better than Mrs May’s.Not only was Northern Ireland to become a different entity, but the European Court of Justice would have a continued say in British public life.

“There were also clever legal wordings that would keep us within the common fisheries policy and commitments to continued regulatory alignment. In short, I felt it was not Brexit.”
