Is Farage in trouble?

Nigel Farage faces backlash after appearing to blame Angela Merkel for the lorry attack in Berlin.

The former Ukip leader was criticsed over a tweet he posted after 12 people were killed in the devastation which took place at the Breitscheidplatz Christmas market on Monday evening.

Farage tweeted: “Terrible news from Berlin but no surprise. Events like these will be the Merkel legacy.”

Merkel has faced some criticism across Germany over her open-door policy to refugees during the crisis in Syria.

Many crticised Farage for his tweet, David Gibson wrote: “This post shows the type of human you are. Using this as point scoring against Merkel, disgusting.”

Another user, Stevo, wrote: “@gibbo89 @Nigel_Farage he’s won what he started out to do, why does he need to score points of Merkel?”
