Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has responded to the deal agreed by Theresa May and the EU with a series of unhappy tweets.

On Friday (December 8) he tweeted a picture of him reading official papers with the caption: "The 17.4m did not vote for a large exit fee, the ECJ continuing to have a say over our country or a 2 year transition. This is not a deal, it's a capitulation."

Farage is furios about concessions which seem to suggest the UK's position on EU withdrawal is softening.

Earlier in the day the veteran anti-EU campaigner said that May's deal was a 'humiliation' for Britain as her government gave in to almost all of Europe's demands. In a column published in The Telegraph, he wrote: "A deal in Brussels is good news for Mrs May as we can now move on to the next stage of humiliation."

Farage also condemned pro-Brexit politicians such as Boris Johnson and Michael Gove for putting party politics above the national interest. He wrote: "Boris Johnson and Michael Gove are putting their party before country again. They know this isn't what 17.4m people voted for."

The tweets followed a number of interviews he conducted with UK media outlets earlier in the day.

Some say that Brexit is undeliverable in the way he promised voters during the EU referendum in 2016.

Some of his supporters say that he should get back into politics to help put Brexit back on the right track.
