Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage stopped off at a pub in Nottinghamshire after speaking at a March To Leave protest – on the same day that ‘one million’ anti-Brexit protesters descended on London to call for another referendum. 

The newly appointed leader of the Brexit party rejoined the symbolic walk in the car park of the Horse and Groom pub in the village of Linby, Nottinghamshire, part of a 14 day, 270 mile route led by Leave Means Leave chairman John Longworth.

The protest is on day eight of its journey from Sunderland to London and is set to finish with a rally at Parliament Square on March 29, the original Brexit day.

The smiling Brexiteer sported ‘Keep Calm And Carry On’ cufflinks as he enjoyed a pint after slamming Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit policy as ‘one of the saddest chapters in the history of our nation’.

He said: ‘What has happened this week is not only a national humiliation but it is an outright betrayal because Mrs May now tells us we’re not leaving next Friday despite telling us over a hundred times that we would be, despite putting a piece of law in place supported by 500 MPs.

‘So there is something going on here that I believe to be one of the saddest chapters in the history of our nation and we will not take this lying down.’ 

Asked about the March to Leave supporters being outnumbered on Saturday by the Peoples Vote March in London, he pointed to the cheering marchers gathered in a pub car park and said: ‘There are 17.4 million here, can’t you see them?’

Mr Farage took to the top of a double-decker open-top bus to address the crowds before leading them off on their trek to Beeston, also in Nottinghamshire.

He told the marchers: ‘What a week it’s been. I was hoping to spend more time with you on the march this week but I’ve been in Brussels watching a British Prime Minister reducing our nation in the eyes of the world to the state of humiliation.

‘Worse than that, the gap that’s now opened up between the people and the politicians is such that, despite everything we were told in the referendum, everything we were told in general election manifestos, every promise that was made when 498 MPs voted for article 50 which said we leave on March 29 with or without a deal, the Prime Minister signalled that we will not be leaving this Friday.

Speaking about Theresa May, he said: ‘What has happened this week is not only a national humiliation but it is an outright betrayal’

‘And that means this March to Leave could not be better timed.’

Mr Farage was cheered as he said: ‘Our message is very clear. If they think they can walk all over us, we’re going to march back and tell them, no you can’t, we will not give in, we will not roll over, we will fight and we know that we will get Brexit whether it’s this Friday or at a later date.

‘Whatever battles we face and have to fight, be confident because we are united. They are in the minority, we are in the majority.

‘We are going to win this great historic battle and we will become again a self governing, independent, normal country not run by (Jean-Claude) Junker and the gang in Brussels.’
