Nigel Farage has described a document he claims showed Coutts closed his bank account because it did not agree with his political views as “prejudiced and nasty”.
The GB News presenter and former UKIP leader said he was “shocked” by the “vitriol” within the document as he called for a change in legislation to ensure the right of an individual to open a bank account.
He said: “It’s such a prejudiced, nasty document. It’s the metropolitan elite loathing the views of the many millions of us that live outside the M25.
“I was a bit shocked, but I was shocked with the vitriol that was within it.
“It is wrong that banks can just close people down and not give any reasons why that, I think is going to change.”
