    Nigel Farage has shared a hand-written note from a schoolboy, called Mathew, offering his most sincere and ardent support to the Brexit Party and slamming MPs for “ignoring democracy” by turning their backs on the results of the 2016 referendum on leaving the EU.

    The letter from a 10-year-old Brexiteer, Mathew, evoked strong emotion from the Brexit Party’s co-founder Nigel Farage, who posted the message on Twitter and branded it “amazing”, but sparked a wave of angry comments.

    ​The “fellow leaver”, as Farage described the young author of the letter, thanked the politician, saying: “Without you the Leave voters would have nobody to represent their opinions."

    Mathew accused the “majority of MPs in Parliament” trying “to ignore democracy and overturn the referendum result” and complained about anti-Brexit propaganda in his school.

    "At my school they try and brainwash us to be pro-EU but me and my friend Jim (fellow Leaver) know their tricks,” the boy wrote in the note.

    Some commenters, however, expressed doubts that the message was genuine and used it to trash Farage.

    ​Others mocked the letter itself.
