BREXIT Party leader Nigel Farage was hit with a backlash online after he called for Boris Johnson to resign.
Nige did, however, say that the Supreme Court verdict looked “like a political decision”, and claimed that “as a matter of honour” Boris should “offer his resignation”.
Brexit Party sources told Politicalite that Nigel’s call for the Prime Minister to resign was so that BoJo could force a General Election.
Nigel took a similar position as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who also called for the Prime Minister to resign yesterday.
On Twitter, many Patriots and Brexiteers said that Mr Farage had ‘got this wrong’.
Brexit Activist Danny Tommo was one Brexiteer who hit back at Farage.
He wrote: “WRONG! You just want him out the way, so you can try and take control with a risk of labour getting into power! #WhatAWolly”

Twitter user Jen wrote: “Come on @Nigel_Farage I expected better of you! Support @BorisJohnson in delivering our democratic decision to leave the EU by #LeaveOct31 If he fails then the gloves can come off. Country before party.”
Another wrote: “Nigel, I love your passion to get Brexit delivered, I love your work, I love your politics. But on this issue, I think your definitely wrong. Boris shouldn’t resign under any circumstances.”
Jennifer Ross tweeted: “Carry on Nigel, you are losing support by the minute. Boris made a gutsy move and it backfired, but he’s trying to enact the referendum.”
Sam Green wrote: “This is disgraceful!! Leavers should be uniting together not fighting each other!!”
BORIS: I WILL PRESS ON!
BULLDOG Boris vowed to press on with Brexit despite unelected Supreme Court judges trying to halt Brexit by declaring the Prime Ministers’ decision to suspend Parliament ‘unlawful’.
Justices claimed that the “effects on the fundamentals of democracy were extreme” but many say that the ruling ‘goes against the people’ and another way for the Judiciary to frustrate Brexit – as Mr Johnson is simply trying to get Brexit boxed off after months of deadlock.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for the Prime Minister to resign, but Number 10 sources have said Mr Johnson will not be resigning.
Mr Johnson said that he “strongly disagreed” with the decision.
Boris also garnered support from U.S. President Donald Trump who said that Britain ‘needs to get Brexit done’ and called Mr Johnson ‘a close friend’ adding: “It will be a terrible thing if Britain does not leave the EU.”
Attorney General Geoffrey Cox had advised the Prime Minister that the suspension would be lawful.
The Attorney General’s Office spokesman said: “We are disappointed that in the end the Supreme Court took a different view. We respect the judgment of the Supreme Court.”
The PM added that he would abide by the finding of the Supreme Court.
