Brexit: Nigel Farage says second referendum would "kill off" remainers

However, Mr Farage swiftly backtracked on the idea, telling the Daily Telegraph: "To be clear, I do not want a second referendum, but I fear one may be forced upon the country by Parliament".

Following the revelation, Mr Farage told the MailOnline website that the European Union was "just being vindictive" to him because of his role in the Brexit vote and that he was being treated as "guilty until proven innocent".

Nigel Farage has "effectively joined the Remain camp" in hinting he could back a second referendum on Europe, a UKIP assembly member has claimed. "The party opposes a second referendum". Although paid as Farage's assistant, Adams was also the national nominating officer for Ukip, where he was described as one of the party's "key people".

As a result, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 29 March 2019, with negotiations taking place between the two countries to establish a working order post departure.

Mrs May shook hands with Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the European Commission, last month after they reached an agreement which will enable them to forge ahead with tough talks over the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the EU.

Appearing on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff, he said: "What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never ever ever give up".

"And Blair can disappear off into total obscurity".

Farage said the percentage of people that would "vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round", adding that "we may just finish the whole thing off". His UKIP colleagues did not agree: No, no, no! This shift in public opinion gives the remain voters their biggest lead since the 2016 referendum.

But he said Mr Farage had been making a "call to arms" to "mobilise the entire Leave campaign". "In a democracy like ours, the British people have every right to keep an open mind about Brexit".

Former Lib Dem leader and MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, Tim Farron, said: "The country is united in wanting the best future for Britain".

Many of them reacted quickly in support of Farage's proposal, expressing confidence about winning the second time around.

Last month Mr Farage raised eyebrows when he said he was "skint" at 53 years old, despite being entitled to the £90,000-a-year MEPs' salary and living in a £4 million townhouse.

He believed it would be rejected by Parliament, where he counted more Tory rebels than Labour Brexiteers ready to defy their own side. "There may well be one last dramatic battle that will take place in all this".
