Farage unveils own roadmap to Brexit ahead of May’s speech

The PM believes the UK should stay part of the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) and the EU's law enforcement body Europol, according to sources.
In a in Munich next Saturday, she will argue that the EAW – which is valid throughout all the EU's member states – has helped keep Britain safe.
In 2016-17, a total of 196 people were arrested using the warrant after a request from the UK, up from 150 in the previous year.

Insiders said Theresa May will use her speech in the German capital to make a "big offer" to the EU to continue security co-operation.
It is hoped the offer will make Brussels negotiators more willing to give Britain a bumper post-Brexit trade deal, according to the Sunday Times.
However, many Brexiteers are firmly opposed to the UK remaining part of the EAW because it is policed by the European Court of Justice (ECJ).
Former Brexit minister David Jones said: "Whatever the utility of the arrest warrant, it is imperative to ensure that the jurisdiction of the ECJ does not prevail."
However, Chancellor and arch-Remainer Philip Hammond will not take part in the co-ordinated bid to set out the Government's position.
Justice Secretary David Gauke today insisted there was no plot to "gag" Mr Hammond.
Mr Gauke said: "He is not part of the set of speeches that have been outlined today, but that doesn't mean that the Chancellor is not expressing his views both internally in the Cabinet conversations, but also externally.
"So, I don't think that there really is anything in this, that this is somehow any kind of plot to gag a particular faction of ministers. I don't think that's a fair characterisation at all."
