Nigel Farage Stands Down – Statement


Statement from Nigel Farage

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 struggle from business because I wanted us to be a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.

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 be yet to come.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you the membership for your extraordinary support and generosity over the many years, I could not have done it without you.

Yours as ever,
Nigel Farage


From Jack Smith:

I’m sure that I speak on behalf of the entirety of UKIP North Norfolk when I applaud and thank Nigel Farage for all the hard work he has put into the idea of the UK becoming a free country, out of the EU. Without UKIP, and Nigel, we would not have gotten a vote to leave. Actually we wouldn’t have even had a referendum.
