Brexit: Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage says 'maybe we should have another referendum'

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has said "maybe we should have a second referendum on EU membership".

Farage said a second vote would "kill off the issue once and for all", during an appearance on TV chatshow The Wright Stuff this morning.

The prominent eurosceptic said: "My mind is actually changing on this.

"What is for certain is that the Blairs, the Cleggs, the Adonises, will never, ever, ever give up. They will go on whingeing, and whining, and moaning.

"So maybe, just maybe, I'm reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership."

Asked by host Matthew Wright whether he meant "the whole thing," Farage said:  "Of course, of course. Unless you want to have a multiple-choice referendum, which would confuse people.

"If we had a second referendum on EU membership we'd kill it off for a generation. The percentage who would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round.

"And we may just finish the whole thing off, and [Tony] Blair can disappear off into total obscurity."

Following Britain's decision to leave the EU Farage sensationally stepped down as Ukip leader, and subsequently campaigned for Donald Trump in the US.
