Labour Mayor Joe Anderson has labelled Nigel Farage a ‘substitute for a human being’ as he said the city would much rather welcome refugees than the leader of The Brexit Party.
Nigel Farage referenced that ‘asylum seekers’ are getting trips to Anfield and staying in plush hotels and this was met with a mixed response with many Liverpudlians weighing in against Mr. Farage.
The Mayor said:
“If he wants to talk football I’ll say he’s a substitute – for a human being.
He’s been relegated, he’s just totally irrelevant now isn’t he.
We have actually just told the government that we want to do more as a city for refugees and welcome more people in.
We are very proud to be right at the top of the table of places that welcome people in and help people and that is something we will always do and want to do more of.
Here in Liverpool we will take absolutely no lessons from that man.
Liverpool is a humanitarian city and it will always be a humanitarian city and we would much rather see refugees here than Nigel Farage.
He will never be welcome in this city and he can stay away.
He’s using the wrong city to try and advance his toxic agenda and he’s found out quite quickly that it won’t work here.”
