Guardian north of England correspondent, Nazia Parveen, reports from Salford:

Following the debate Dr David Bull MEP from the Brexit Party said he did not agree with Nigel Farage when, during one of the most memorable moments of the debate, he said “men say dreadful things sometimes” in reference to sexist comments by Donald Trump.

Bull said: “He is allowed to have his own opinion. However, I don’t condone it or agree with it because I believe that everyone should be treated with respect. It was an ill-advised comment.”

Meanwhile Delyth Jewell from Plaid Cymru said Farage’s comments had illustrated that he was unfit for public office. She said: “Farage’s mask well and truly slipped. Shame on him. That moment made clear how lacking in morals he is and how unfit for public life he is.”
