Now even Nigel Farage wants a second Brexit referendum

Now even Nigel Farage wants a second Brexit referendum

The Guardian that Mr Farage will now pay back £35,500 (€40,000) through having his salary withheld, after auditors concluded he had indeed misspent the funds.

Hours after arguing that another vote would silence those "whinging and whining" who are against leaving the bloc, and with the idea drawing immediate support from pro-EU politicians, he sought to clarify his comments and reversed course.

It was claimed the EU Commission would look to strip Britain of its rebate and opt-outs on the euro and Schengen if a second poll resulted in a Remain vote.

"That is how deep my distrust is for career politicians", he wrote.

Helen Whately, MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, said: "I was really surprised to hear Nigel Farage calling for a second referendum".

"They will go on whinging and whining and moaning all the way through this process", he added.

The former UKIP boss has regained the political limelight this week after appearing to call for a second referendum on Britain and the EU.

"They understood very well what they were voting for".


"We should just get on with it".

"I don't agree with the decision and it's not the way I would vote but I think that [having a second referendum] is a ridiculous idea".

An Efdd Group spokesman told The Independent: "There is a vindictive campaign by the European Parliament of selective persecution of Eurosceptic MEPs, parties and groups".

Getty•RTRoger Evans said many Remainers are aware the Brexit "scare stories" are not true It's not just about Brexit. "Tony Blair and Nigel Farage aren't two people I'd normally like to be put in a group with, but on this issue they are speaking sense".

The former UKIP leader said: "I'm reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on European Union membership" on Channel 5's the Wright Stuff.

Mr Farage was one of the leading figures in the Leave campaign, which won the referendum with 51.9% of votes.

And it earned a rebuke from the new UKIP leader Henry Bolton and many of his MEP colleagues in Brussels.

Prime Minister Theresa May clinched a divorce deal last month that paves the way for arduous talks on future trade ties ahead of the United Kingdom's exit which is due on March 29, 2019.
