Nigel Farage, the former leader of Ukip, the party that strongly supported Brexit, has admitted that two of his four children have both British and German citizenship, according to the Independent. This means that they will maintain their free movement rights in the EU after Brexit.
Farage’s wife, Kristen Mehr, is a German national. Last year, Mr Farage was forced to deny that he was trying to apply for German citizenship, after being spotted at the German embassy.
Farage has been one of the biggest critics of the European Union, despite being a member of the European Parliament. He has said that he was “astonished” that young people thought the Union would have a “bright, shiny future”. Instead, he believes, “the European project is disintegrating before our eyes”.
