Streets of Oldham split along racial lines with ‘no assimilation’, claims Nigel Farage

Entire streets of Oldham are split along racial lines with ‘no assimilation’, claims Nigel Farage in speech at US university

  • Mr Farage made the claims in speech at Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania
  • The Brexit Party leader said Oldham, Greater Manchester, is a ‘divided society’ 
  • He claimed that white and black people ‘never meet’ in the town 

Taking a break from campaigning with his new Brexit Party, Nigel Farage jetted to the US to give a speech – but risked sparking a row back home.

He claimed that entire streets of Oldham in Greater Manchester are split along racial lines, in a speech at Lock Haven University in rural Pennsylvania.

The Brexit Party leader said Oldham was a ‘divided society’. The talk in Lock Haven, a town with a population of 9,200 people, seemed an unlikely venue, but the county is full of Trump supporters and heads were nodding as Mr Farage spoke.

He told the crowd of 150: ‘Let me take you to a town called Oldham in the North of England where literally on one side of the street everybody is white and on the other side of the street everybody is black.

‘The twain never actually meet, there is no assimilation.

‘These, folks, are divided societies in which resentments build and grow.’
