Speaking after the Brexit Party surged across the UK Mr Farage commented:
“Never before in British politics has a new party launched just six weeks ago topped the polls.
The reason is very obvious: we voted to leave and we haven’t.
The Labour and Conservative parties can learn a huge lesson, though I doubt they will.
The new date is October 31 and we in the Brexit Party want to be part of that negotiation.”
