BREXIT Supremo Nigel Farage has vowed to return to frontline politics unless Brexit is not put ‘back on track.’
Farage nade the shock announcement last night. and said: “I never thought I would say that again, but the government’s sell-out leaves me with no choice. The latest Brexit betrayal must be reversed.”
Mr Farage continued: “Unless Brexit is back on track by then, I will have to seriously consider putting my name forward to return as Ukip leader.”
He also threatened to make Tories lose seats: “I can ensure any Conservatives listening to this, sitting in marginal seats, who are not prepared to honour the wishes of the electorate, I will make damn sure that you all lose your seats.”
Mr Farage’s comments will not cause a stir within UKIP as the party will hold a leadership contest in April next year .
This is not because current leader Gerard Batten is unpopular, it is because his ‘tenure’ expires then.
Batten promised to only serve one year, to ensure he could run unopposed at the last ballot to avoid a costly leadership ballot – so he could focus on rebuilding a shattered Party.
Patrick O’Flynn, and Bill Etheridge – two UKIP MEP’s welcomed the news:
It is worth noting that Nigel has said similar things before. However, this time the support from two MEPs suggests a considerable amount of thought has been put into this question and that demonstrates intent.
