Nigel Farage Promises Return As UKIP Leader If May's "Brexit Betrayal Isn't Reversed"

Nigel Farage, who two years ago exited from UK politics, pledged to return to campaigning over Brexit once interim UKIP leader Gerard Batten reaches the end of his term in March. The traditionally outspoken Farage blasted Prime Minister Theresa May as she fights off a rebellion from within the conservative party following the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis.

The former trader dedicated his political career to pulling Britain out of the EU, and still serves as an member of the European Parliament for South East England. The ex-UKIP leader - who was one of the architects of Brexit, having been a leading voice in the campaign to leave - blasted the PM as “awful” and warned the “latest  Brexit betrayal must be reversed”.

Earlier today he congratulated former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson for his decision to quit May's cabinet.

In a follow up tweet, Farage said that "unless Brexit is back on track by March 2019, I will seriously consider putting my name forward to return as @UKIP leader. The will of 17.4m voters must be carried out."

To some, Farage's bluster comes far too late: UKIP have no MPs, and won just 1.8% of the vote at the last election – down by nearly 11% from 2015.

That has not dented Farag's spirit who said: "I can assure any Conservatives listening to this, sitting in marginal seats, who are not prepared to stand up and honour the wishes of the electorate, I will make damn sure in that situation that you all lose your seats... Because there are millions of Conservative voters very unhappy indeed."

Previously Farage served as UKIP leader between 2006 and 2009, and returned to the job between 2010 and 2016. In September and October 2016 the 54-year-old took up the reins for a third time after Diane James's surprise resignation after 18 days as leader.

Farage's announcement comes amid a day of chaos in the Cabinet as the PM faced Boris Johnson and David Davis resigning over her stance on Brexit.

Farage also penned a Telegraph Op-ed on the topic, which can be read here.

May is in fact controlled by the Deep State and the Globalist "elites" do not want to accept the will of the people and will fight this to the bitter end.

It's actually quite simple really: The British people voted to LEAVE the EU to regain sovereignty and to retake control of its own borders and laws presently decreed by psychopathic, anti-democtratic, unelected Bureaucrats in Brussels.

And at the end of the day, there are things more important than money. So if the UK economy suffers a temporary setback and jobs get lost because of a Hard Brexit, so be it. Britain has always found its way in the world and will continue to do so after Brexit.

So can we please just GET ON WITH IT.....

Trump knows that Traitor May is history so there is no reason to waste his time on her.   Even if May survives a vote of no confidence there will be few people who do have any confidence in her.   She has been a disaster from the get-go  

Trump should make it his business to talk with Rees-Mogg and Farage and Batten while he is in the UK   (Preferably at the US Embassy where they will not be bugged.)   A UK free of the shackles of the EU will be a better ally to the US/

just a reminder, though i am sure you are aware, parliament is a nest of libtard socialists, that is best described as a lunatic asylum hooked on the opiate of sponsored mediocrity.

offer a choice that promotes quality, independence and fiscal supluses (via the halving of the national health budget to a mere 4% of gdp instead of 8% with better QUALITY health care) and see if you can motivate other like minded individuals that have an allergy to bureacratic waste and libtard socialism.

is this the same turd that is married to a German and was seen applying for a German passport? another upper class twat ridding a wave of nationalism with all the honesty of a used car salesman!

 

You ran off from the mess you made like a naughty schoolboy, at least have the decency to stay away and let the grown-ups deal with it as soon as we can find some?

+1 from me.

Ukip have lost votes/mp's as dumb tory voters thought it was mission accomplished. It was not, the fight was just beginning. If brexit is not delivered Ukip will end up with around 20% of the vote and a handful of mp's.

 

BTW Teresa May is politically finished anyone who can't see that is not paying attention. Boris would not jump ship otherwise.

Most of the spineless turds on both sides didn't know what to do when the UK voted to leave because that was not the result that was supposed to happen, it was a jolly nice debating game just like at oxbridge. then the result and the pig fucker who stared the show stepped down and the shit storm began in earnest.

So he is not anti anything, he's like just every other self serving person involved in most forms of politics, more concerned about himself than any fulfilment of their grand promises. he lied just like most people on both side of the argument have, and when the result went wrong and the pressure to deliver on the promises got to much. he fucked off. brave bold sir Robbin! i have little or no respect for the cunt.

UKIP had their chance and royally pissed it up the wall.

Originally i was in favour of the EU when it was the original 6-8 states that all shared similar socio economic aspirations.

But i voted to leave but not because of UKIP or any of the other blundering twats like Boris. i voted to leave because of TTIP and the EIB loan to Turkey taking away Uk jobs and a hundred and one other things that never really got discussed, because both sides did what petulant spoilt little children do best, and turned it into a slanging match, and this prick was chief agent provocateur

 

you can down vote me all you like but it does not change the fact that he ran away like a coward after stirring up the nation on false hopes that he never intended to honour, you have a strange idea of a hero?

So if you had enough support to do what you wanted what would you do?

Declare you are just out.

Declare all oppressive EU laws null and void, and then have regulatory confusion while you took years to set up your own?

Go out and start negotiating treaties with anyone and everyone who mattered starting the next day, shutting down trade in the meantime? 

Be responsible for any disruptions in the meantime as the economy rearranged itself to be a domestically-oriented one?

Or claim you want all that, run away as a matter or principle, and then threaten to return if things did not go the way you wanted ...

If he returns, and May continues to betray brexit and if all of the people that voted for Brexit votes for UKIP, we are looking at a fundamental shift in British policy, a UKIP majority parliament, with the Scotish not Labour as its primary opposition.
