Nigel Farage has refused to rule out accepting a knighthood or peerage, despite his belief that the House of Lords "needs to go".
The Brexit Party leader has been vocal about his opposition to accepting a title, but said ruling it out completely was "very, very stupid".
He told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer: "After the  referendum there was some friendly talk about the fact I really ought to be going to the House of Lords and would I be up for it, and I said absolutely not.
"I would have been out of the game. I wouldn't have been able to launch the Brexit Party."
He continued: "Anyone that ever says never is very, very stupid, but I have no interest in doing that. I think the House of Lords needs to go. In the 21st Century let's have an elected upper chamber. That would be a lot more democratic."
Ahead of the 2019 election campaign, there was speculation that Mr Farage was offered a peerage in return for standing down Brexit Party candidates in Conservative-held seats.
However, he insisted he was "not for sale" and rejected a title, claiming there had been "about 12 attempts" to offer him a place in the Lords since 2005.
Mr Farage added: "We have a system of patronage and peerages whereby friends get rewarded and enemies get bought off and chucked in the House of Lords, which has no place in 21st Century Britain."
