Farage made the claim while accusing the EU of 'weaponising' the Irish border to 'ensure the United Kingdom stays with the European regulatory framework.'
He said: 'The one thing Barnier has been scared of from the start is us leaving and us becoming competitive.
'Sadly the British Prime Minister has fallen hook line and sinker for this and we find ourselves now going into this next summit in a very weak position.'
Calling for a free trade deal with Europe the former UKIP leader also claimed that Britain was 'treasure island'.
