Nigel Farage claims Rishi Sunak ‘not a patriotic leader’ after D-Day blunder

Nigel Farage has suggested Rishi Sunak is “not a patriotic leader” after his D-Day blunder.

The prime minister left the 80th anniversary events in Normandy early on Thursday 6 June to record a general election campaign TV interview.

He later apologised for his decision to leave France before a major international ceremony to mark the anniversary of the Allied landings but urged people not to politicise the event.

“That says a lot about him,” Mr Farage said of Mr Sunak.

“He is completely disconnected from the centre of this country and he has proved to me that he is not a patriotic leader of the Conservative Party.”
