Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage said there was no difference between Angela Merkel and Martin Schulz, the leading candidates for Chancellorship of Germany, while speaking as a guest at an Alternative for Deustchland (AfD) press conference in Berlin on Friday. «On the big stuff you virtually can't put a cigarette paper between Merkel and Schulz,» said Farage. He remarked that Schulz was a «pro-EU... Еще fanatic», adding «I think that Schulz is one of those people who would along with Juncker and Barnier and the others, put the interest of Brussels above a sensible renegotiation». Farage also dismissed claims that there was a «buyers remorse» in the United Kingdom on the question of Brexit, adding that it was «quite the opposite actually». He also added that British PM Theresa May doesn't get «some sense of order back into her own party and direction back into where the renegotiations are going, then I think the whispering campaign will go from something that is being done in private to being done in public».
