Nigel Farage filmed the Monday edition of his GB News live from Belgrade, Serbia as he reacted to the Australian government’s handling of Novak Djokovic. The former UKIP leader explained why he was pleased the world number one tennis player had won his court battle as he defended his own stance on the visa battle.
Farage vented: “I’ve had the double vaccine, I’m not an anti-vaxxer as some might want to call me.
“But the point is this even if you’ve been jabbed once, twice, thrice, four times as many in Israel are you can still catch this virus and you can still pass it on.
“So provided the unvaccinated person has got up to date tests and is negative, what is the problem?
“If they catch Covid they may well become much more seriously ill because I am convinced that if you’ve had the vaccine, you’ve got a degree of protection but it’s about us not discriminating against a very large group of people.”

“So what is the truth?” Farage continued. “What is the truth about Novak Djokovic?
“Well, it’s really very straightforward. He met the rules given by Tennis Australia, given by the Victoria state authorities who said, ‘Provided you’ve got a negative test, if you’ve had Covid within the last six months, you can come into Australia.’
“And on that basis, he was allowed to board that aeroplane.
“On that basis, he was told you can have a visa to come to Australia to play in the Australian Open.”

“What the Aussie government did is they decided they would make an example of this man,” he remarked.
“And by making an example of him, perhaps they could bully everybody else who didn’t want to have the vaccine into getting it.”
“They have made, I think Scott Morrison has made a catastrophic error.
“I thought the judgement this morning was very clear that Novak Djokovic had met all the criteria.”

“It was right that he was in Australia and to boot the Australian Government have got to pay his legal bills.
“I think it was the right judgement, I think it’s a very important blow for freedom.
“It’s the first time we’ve actually, in the last two years, seen a pushback against big state government getting stronger and acting, frankly, in many ways, using arbitrary power.
“So I believe this was absolutely and completely right at a very, very important moment.”

Farage also spoke to the tennis player’s uncle Goran Djokovic who revealed the visa battle had been “a horror” for him.
