POLL: Should Nigel Farage make a political comeback?

Former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has hinted that he could make a return to frontline politics after criticising the Conservative Government’s handling of Brexit.

The Brexiteer has been outspoken about the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, claiming that Brexit has “failed under the Tories” and that voters have been “utterly betrayed” following record immigration figures.

He has predicted that there will be “another insurgency in British politics” which could come from himself, telling Sky News’s Beth Rigby Interviews programme: “I think the gap between Westminster and where people are is even bigger than it was 10 years ago.

“I think there will be another insurgency in British politics. Whether it will be Reform, whether it will be me, whether we get a new Nick Griffin [former BNP leader].” The former MEP continued: “Something is going to change. This gap is too big.”

He added that if he made a comeback he would stand on a “much more revolutionary agenda than just Brexit”.


Asked if he would return in the next five years he said: “I don’t know, I genuinely don’t know. I haven’t ruled it out, I haven’t ruled it in. If I could see by doing it there was a really clear achievable goal then I might well. I haven’t worked that out yet.”

Discussing a return with GB News’ Dan Wooton, Mr Farage said he would need to consider whether this would be effective. He explained: “I’ve got to work out if I do this, what is the effect…would I help Labour to get an even bigger majority in this election? Which could make them even worse than the Conservatives and they are pretty bad in this regard.

“Or would I finish up, like 2015, with four million votes and one seat.. never before in British electoral history has anyone ever got so many votes for so little return.”
