Nigel Farage has backed Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party – describing him as a ‘priceless asset for UKIP!’
Corbyn has been attacked by members of his own party following a terrible night in Thursday’s UK local elections where they lost seats all around the country.
UKIP, meanwhile, strengthened its position and, while Corbyn is coming under renewed pressure from his own members, he has an unlikely ‘ally’ in the shape of Nigel Farage.
The UKIP leader told Julia Hartley-Brewer: “Corbyn is an absolutely priceless asset as far as I’m concerned for the long-term development of UKIP.
“Corbyn must stay! I’ll launch the campaign. I’ll even send a cheque!”
