Farage Resigns As Ukip Leader

Recommended Posts

Nigel Farage resigned as leader of the U.K. Independence Party, saying that his victory in the referendum on leaving the European Union represented a career high to go out on.

“I now feel that I’ve done my bit, that I couldn’t possibly achieve more,” Farage told reporters in London on Monday. “It’s right that I should now stand aside as leader. What I said during the referendum campaign is I want my country back. What I’m saying today is I want my life back. And it begins right now.”

Farage.

The 'hero' the UK didn't need.

Good riddance.

However, he's 'quit' before.

And if really he does leave, which doofus will take over that isn't prone to overtly bigoted gaffs?

However it pans out, he gets a lovely big pay packet from the EU, perhaps he'll even move to Germany with his Mrs.

Can't say I blame him, he got his referendum, he won it.

To me he did want to quit after the general election but was convinced to stay on a bit longer for the the referendum.

I can only imagine the vitriol from the angry left for winning and simply cannot be bothered with it anymore especially since the Government as it is won't allow him to be involved with the negotiations.

I think he knows the Government as it is won't allow him to be involved with the negotiations.

I don't think so. Wolfe looks like the early favourite to run.

I have a feeling Ukip will be needed more than ever over the coming years, to keep the elite in check.

Changed history.

One of the most influential people in modern politics.

Quit at the top.

Will eat the left for decades this.

+ 1,000 the shit that man took for no good reason ,yet he still achieved more than all the others put together and they were the ones that were supposedly our leaders and yes the bigoted supremacists will take a long time to get over it for sure

TBH, he would have been a disaster in the negotiating team. He would have put all their backs up no end. Hopefully he will enjoy a well-earned rest and not attend EU parliament too often.

I don't like Farage and voted Remain (though I'm seeing more and more silver linings) but hats off to him for almost single-handedly creating and leading a movement that has changed the political landscape of the UK - and doing so from outside of Parliament.

Shows that change can happen.

It's pretty clear by now that 'Leave' also stands for 'Leave it for someone else to sort out the mess'.

Farage was never going to be part of the negotiations ,not sure if you realised but he`s not part of team blue

Maybe. Maybe not.

This has cemented the idea into the heads of contemporary politicians that direct democracy is a REAL threat to their representative democracy.

Oh... that, and the establishment is full of liars with their own agendas which are generally not in the public interests.

Brexit referendum issues will head back to parliament and stalemate, a GE will occur at some point, and we return to status quo.

Oh. Everybody who's been posting bigoted crap and armchair anarchist threats on social media & the interwebs have condemned themselves to being on a watch list for life.

The UK knows how do deal with indigenous troublemakers who aren't plugged into one of the houses of Parliament. That's one of its redeeming features throughout history.

Oh yea. And Brits are too fickle.

Threaten their global perceived hegemony and they'll get right back to football, swilling pints at the local, and bleating on about house prices.

Brexit??? oh look, a new iphone...!

Whatever your opinion that is true. We can change this country without the insulting and violence practised by the left. They don't understand that constant accusations of racism and fascism against dissenters undermines their opinions.
