IEA Managing Editor Daniel Freeman has written for CapX criticising Nigel Farage’s claim that the West had ‘provoked’ the invasion of Ukraine.

Daniel wrote:

“Farage, who has spent a good deal of time in the US over the last few years, seems to be under the impression that there is a portion of the electorate which wants to blame the West and institutions like Nato in particular for the war in Ukraine. Otherwise, it’s difficult to explain his shift in the last few days away from talking about immigration to this issue of foreign and defence policy. 

“But Britain is not America. In the UK, the public are overwhelmingly supportive of Nato and believe the accession of many eastern European countries since the fall of the Berlin Wall has reduced rather than increased the likelihood of war.

“In a recent round of surveys on the subject, YouGov found that 83% of the public support the existence of Nato. While just 15% of voters buy the thesis that Nato has increased the likelihood of war.”
