Theresa May is under increasing Cabinet pressure following her decision to dismiss Nigel Farage as an "irrelevance"

Theresa May is under increasing Cabinet pressure following her decision to dismiss Nigel Farage as an “irrelevance” after he edged out the prime minister and became the first British politician to meet with Donald Trump after he managed to clinch the keys to the White House.
The Ukip leader spent around an hour with the US President-elect in New York on Saturday and urged the government to look past “their personal enmity towards me” and “have a constructive conversation”.
He added that it is in the “national interest” to involve him in building bridges with a Trump administration and said he would make himself available to assist with the efforts. He said: “If I’m wanted by anybody in London to help, I will help.”
According to a report in the Telegraph, May has said that government ministers will not be allowed to speak to Farage despite his links to the Republican.
Writing in the newspaper on Sunday, Farage criticised the government’s treatment of President-elect and said: “The only slight negative I picked up [from the meeting with Trump’s team] was the sense that so many senior Conservative figures and indeed important staff figures who now work in No 10 had been so unrelentingly negative about The Donald. Clearly, there are fences to be mended.”
