Ukip’s leader and one of the leaders of the Brexit campaign-Nigel Farage has resigned—shockingly, ahead of the actual implementation of the Brexit referedum.
At a speech in London, Mr Farage, who was elected as an MEP for Ukip in 1999, said he had never wanted to be a career politician and was standing down.
“I now feel that I’ve done my bit, that I couldn’t possibly achieve more,” he said.
“I won’t be changing my mind again, I assure you”.
“I have decided to stand aside as leader of Ukip. The victory for the Leave side in the referendum means that my political ambition has been achieved. I came into this business because I wanted us to a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.”
He added: “Ukip is in a good position and will continue, with my full support to attract a significant vote. Whilst we will now leave the European Union the terms of our withdrawal are unclear. If there is too much backsliding by the Government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters then Ukip’s best days may yet to come.”
Farage’s resignation has gotten social media folks talking—with some saying he is running away from the doom he championed and he has perhaps now realized how Brexit is a suicide mission for Britain.
