One cabinet source told The Daily Telegraph that Downing Street “had no plan” for a Trump victory despite claims that UK government officials had met with Trump’s team.
And after No 10 insisted the outgoing Ukip chief would have “no role” in the Government’s dealings with the incoming US administration, Tory peer, and former trade envoy, Lord Marland said Downing Street should use Farage as a “salesman”.
Marland said: “Anything we can do at any level to rebuild that relationship will be to Britain’s advantage, and if Farage happens to be one of the people who encourages that relationship then so be it.”
The Times reported that some inside Whitehall believe No 10 was too hasty to dismiss Farage and his potential role in building links with Trump.
