UKIP's leader Paul Nuttall has said that it's great to see Mark Carney eating his own words, after his announcement to MPs that the fallout from Brexit might not be as bad as first feared.

The UKIP leader joined Julia Hartley-Brewer in the studio to discuss Brexit, Carney, Donald Trump and more.

Nuttall, who was elected leader of the UKIP  told Julia that he was happy to see Carney admit that Brexit is not in fact the biggest threat to the UK econony.

He added: “We’re the fastest growing economy in the G7, manufacturing is up, unemployment is down, and it will only get better, I believe, once we're outside the European Union."

Nuttall also talked about the Brexit Supreme Court case, saying that if the decision on whether to trigger Article 50 eventually goes to the House of Lords and peers try to amend or block the legislation, it could be the death-knell for the unelected upper chamber.

Turning to the Donald Trump dossier and his subsequent remarks, Nuttall reiterated his claim that, despite the current controversy, the President-elect will be good for Britain because "he was pro-Brexit - one of the first things he’s going to do is put the bust of Winston Churchill back in the Oval office."

Julia also raised the issue of an English Parliament, with Nuttall suggesting it's vital England has its own legislative assembly - in fact, he believes this stance was a key factor in his leadership election victory. 

"The majority of English people now want to see an English Parliament. They want to see real representation for English people," Nuttall said.

"England deserves its own parliament, England deserves its own first minister."
