Nigel Farage has threatened to come back into frontline politics as UKIP Leader if Brexit ‘isn’t back on track’ by March 2019, in an article for The Telegraph.
Nigel wrote: “I never wanted a career in politics. I only ever wanted to stop the country I love being sucked further into a political and economic union which is most unnatural to the instincts of the majority of my fellow citizens.
“However, my own red line is that if Article 50 is suspended or delayed, I will have no choice but to resume campaigning in all parts of the United Kingdom. In March 2019, the current Leader of UKIP, Gerard Batten, will reach the end of his term in office.
“Unless Brexit is back on track by then, I will have to seriously consider putting my name forward to return as UKIP Leader. 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.”
He warned, on his LBC show, that he will make sure Tory MPs in marginal seats who don’t show a backbone on Brexit will ‘all’ lose their seats
Watch this space. This should be another reminder to Tory Brexiteers that a sell-out would be catastrophic.
