British political commentator Nigel Farage has been labelled ‘far-right scum’ in an explosive confrontation with a left-wing protester after speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Sydney.

Mr Farage, who is best known for being the leader of the pro-Brexit UKIP party in Britain, was confronted by a furious young man after the conference on Saturday afternoon.

The man, donning a black face mask, accused Mr Farage of being ‘racist, Islamophobic and anti-queer’ while telling him ‘fascists aren’t welcome here’.

The commentator asked the man to define fascism before the man replied ‘far-right scum like yourself’.

The pair argued for a few minutes, with both struggling to get their point across as they spoke over the top of each other.

British political commentator Nigel Farage has been labelled ‘far-right scum’ in an explosive confrontation with a left-wing protester after speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Sydney.

‘People like you who talk about discrimination, who talk about prejudice, actually you are the ones with the prejudice,’ Mr Farage told the young man.

‘You can’t have a debate with me without swearing and being abusive.’

He then accused the young man of not having an argument, and bluntly asked him ‘are you morally superior?’.

‘I respect your right to have a different opinion but you can’t have a debate,’ Mr Farage said.

The young man then responded saying he wasn’t there to have a debate but was there to protest.

Mr Farage, who is best known for being the leader of the pro-Brexit UKIP party in Britain, was confronted by a furious young man after the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Sydney on Saturday afternoon

‘I think you should get out of Sydney!’ he shouted as the commentator walked off, before chanting ‘racist bigots, anti-queer, fascists are not welcome here’.

Mr Farage laughed as he walked off, telling the man he needed ‘genuine mental help’, and shared footage of the bizarre clash to his Twitter account.

‘Just had a heated verbal altercation with this left wing protester. He was talking nonsense!’ he tweeted.

Mr Farage had earlier taken aim at former prime minister Scott Morrison, calling him a ‘gutless coward’ and saying Aussie conservative politicians had shown ‘a total lack of courage’ in the past few years.

Former Liberal prime minister Mr Morrison was ‘bullied’ into signing up to the UN COP 26 goals of cutting greenhouse gas emissions at the globals leaders meeting held in Glasgow in late 2021, Mr Farage said.

‘C’mon COP 26 what was that about?’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘You turn up and you get bullied with other world leaders into committing your country into something with other world leaders without a proper debate, if that’s not gutless, what is?’

Mr Farage said to be the ‘odd man out on the global stage took courage’.

‘It’s amazing on the world stage time and time again how individual leaders get bullied into positions that they didn’t really want.’

He said COP 26 was ‘evidence’, Mr Morrison was a ‘coward’.

Mr Farage said he did not think Mr Morrison was alone and cited a lack of courage from the party he led, the Liberals, and their coalition partners the Nationals.

‘They think “what we’ll do is play the Labor-lite game, what we’ll do is get those Teal votes back” – but they aren’t coming back,’ Mr Farage said.

The Teals are the climate activist MPs that claimed a number of previously blue ribbon Liberal seats in affluent areas at the last federal election.

Mr Farage said it’s been common among conservative politicians around the world, including in his own country under former Conservative Party Prime Minister Boris Johnson, to move towards ‘Social Democrat centralism’.

‘It is a very comfortable place to be because you will get invited to all the nice dinner parties and life won’t be difficult,’ Mr Farage said.

‘What they need to do is say ”actually what we are going to do is take a moral stance, a strong moral stance and on many, many of these cultural issues”.’

Protesters are seen outside the CPAC forum on Saturday afternoon

‘Yes, we’ll get abused, there’ll be protesters and yes people will say horrible things on Twitter but that’s the courage I am talking about.’

He admitted many did not have the ‘qualities’ to show such bravery but there would be an electoral reward if they did.

‘I believe and what I have seen around the western world is when conservative leaders do that (show courage) – guess what they win elections,’ he said.

Mr Farage spoke to a friendly audience on Saturday afternoon, who were gathered to attend the two-day conservative CPAC forum held in Sydney’s Darling Harbour International Convention Centre.

Police at one stage had to separate CPAC attendees and media representatives who had wandered into the rally and received a hostile reception.

Protesters also ran to get through a back entrance of the centre but were blocked by police who again shepherded them away when they tried to march on the building’s main entrance changing ‘F**k off fascists’.
