Farage almost blew it for us, claims Vote Leave mastermind: Dominic Cummings says Out would have won by 60% to 40% without the Ukip leader’s intervention

  • Boss of Vote Leave campaign said side could have won by a bigger margin 
  • Dominic Cummings claimed Nigel Farage caused Leave to lose voters 
  • In the end, Leave won a narrow victory of less than 52 per cent to 48 

Nigel Farage almost cost the Leave side victory in the EU referendum, the leader of the ‘Out’ campaign claimed yesterday.

Dominic Cummings, campaign director of Vote Leave, said that without the Ukip leader’s intervention, the Brexit side would have won by 60 per cent to 40.

In the end, Leave won a narrow victory of less than 52 per cent to 48.

Mr Cummings wrote on Twitter: ‘Farage and the idiots around him came within a whisker of losing us the Referendum.’

Tom Richmond: No wonder that David Cameron’s clique lost the Brexit vote

IF THERESA May wants some advice on how not to run a government, she should read the inside account of the Brexit referendum written by her predecessor David Cameron’s newly-knighted press secretary Sir Craig Oliver.

Called Unleashing Demons: The Inside Story of Brexit, it provides extraordinary insight into the extent to which Mr Cameron’s team took the country for granted because they were obsessed with everyone from Michael Gove to the BBC rather than understanding the flaws in the Remain case.

I was, frankly, shocked when Tory grandee Ken Clarke revealed in his own memoir that the Cabinet had not been informed – never mind consulted – over the decision to hold the totemic vote on Britain’s membership of the European Union.

    Some may also say that without the work and the constant pressure that Mr Farage applied in the EU there might not have been a referendum . It is easy to say things with hindsight like “Farage almost blew it for us”….. Dominic Cummings says Out would have won by 60% to 40% without the Ukip leader’s intervention….. a comment that can never ever be proven……. I think that without the help of Mr Farage the remainers would have won…..prove me wrong .

    What a load of Testicles, Farage was hardly seen on the National news stations, compared with Boris and Gove. Rightly or wrongly, the referendum was hijacked by both the Government and the Tory leavers in an effort to exclude UKIP. As for the 60/40 issue, one single vote counts in a referendum.

    Dominic has an absolute right to talk out of his arse

    Dominic and Co were the ones who expected us all to vote to leave without a plan. So he surely is talking tosh.
