The Brexit mastermind accused politicians on the continent of being the “cause” of terror attacks which have rocked nation after nation.

The attack in Las Ramblas, Barcelona, has been met by an outcry of sympathy from leaders including Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Theresa May.

Farage said: “What happens is they all stand up and they say ‘We stand in solidarity with Barcelona, or Brussels, or Stockholm, or Paris, or London or wherever it may be, and this is really truly awful’.

“There is no understanding of why this is going on and not once, not once, do we ever hear a single leader in Europe offer any policy solution whatsoever.

“They are still in denial, and my only guess is that they are so embarrassed by the fact that they have caused this.”

While the former Ukip leader did not explain how leaders had caused the attacks, he quickly moved on to talk about Brexit, and the importance of border control.

Asked if there was a political price for leaders who ‘make the problem worse’ by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, he said: “Well I think there will be.

“And if we go back a year I think Brexit was about much of this.

“It was the British people saying ‘Look, we actually want to control our borders, not because we dislike anybody but because we believe firstly in sensible border controls and secondly in protecting ourselves and making ourselves a bit safer.’

“So you could say the EU has paid a big political price in terms of Brexit.

“But for the moment one of the problems is that many of the parties around Europe that stand up against Islamic extremism, themselves appear to the electorate at times to be a bit extreme themselves.”

His comments come after a network of attacks across Catalonia, Spain.
