Nigel Farage has slammed City Minister Bim Afolami’s stance on appeasing China, warning that the country will ‘cheat’ and ‘steal’ from the UK.

Speaking on GB News Nigel Farage said: “The City Minister, Bim Afolami, has said that Britain should not give China the cold shoulder because its banks and financial institutions were simply too large to ignore.

“Yes, it would be a real mistake, a real mistake, if we allowed ourselves not to view China as the best of friends.

“Oh yes, of course, they'll cheat and they'll steal from us, and they'll behave terribly, and their human rights record is absolutely abominable. And it is a terrible, awful ghastly regime.

“But that's okay according to Bim, because without them the City might be a little bit poorer.

“It tells you all you need to know.”
