Nigel Farage, former leader of Great Britain’s UKIP party and victorious architect of Brexit, is now afraid that the UK will betray Brexit voters.
Writing in the Telegraph, he said “Brexiteers must accept that the Brexit betrayal is happening” through a delay of the UK’s departure from the EU, or a second referendum on the question of independence:
“In line with my new year resolution, I am preparing to fight the European elections on May 23rd and working with Leave Means Leave to assemble a cross-party campaign to fight a second referendum, should one occur.
“Not to do so would be negligent. It would also betray the 17.4 million people who voted for the UK’s independence.
“After dedicating 25 years to getting Britain out of the EU, I shall return to the battle lines if I must. And I will do so with more determination than I have ever shown before.”
Speaking to Sky News, Farage said he fears the most likely outcome is an extension of Article 50.
One thing’s for certain: Farage believes the Leave faction should be prepared for anything.
“What I do know is that the Remain side is well-funded, well-organised, and ready for a second referendum,” he said.
