Nigel Farage on Brexit trade talks going down to the wire

A call for calm, from the man who led the campaign for Britain's exit from the European Union.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reached an agreement with the European Commission, to extend talks on a post-Brexit trade deal.

But a deal is unlikely to be signed before the Brexit transition period ends, at the end of this month.

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage told Mike Yardley it could cause some goods in Britain to cost more, but it won't be the end of the world.

Farage says a no-deal wouldn't be the end of the world, but a deal is still more than likely.

"In New Zealand, you see Boris Johnson threatening Britain might walk away. I don’t think that’s very likely, there is a large theatrical element going on here."
