Nigel Farage has warned politicians that they do not understand the level of anger in the country over Brexit.

With the Brexit Party riding high in the polls, Mr Farage believes a General Election is possible - and discontent would be felt.

He told Good Morning Britain: “Collapse of the Government, a motion of no confidence could spark a General Election.

“Either way, do not underestimate, I think Westminster does not get how angry this country is.

“Do not underestimate the power and the potency of the Brexit Party, to completely change the numbers.”

Buoyed on by his new party’ lead in the polls, Mr Farage believes the upcoming European elections will “change everything”.

He added: “I think, I could be wrong, I think this new Brexit Party that I set up four weeks ago has kind of appeared like a jack in a box.

“I think we are going to win these European elections. Possibly win them in quite a big way.

“What you will then see, is the people who are voting for us in a European election, are going to say ‘do you know what, I am going to vote for these people in a General Election too’.

“People out there have had enough of not being told the truth. They have had enough of Brexit not being delivered.”

Mr Farage’s march to win the European elections continued this week as he targeted Tory donors frustrated at Theresa May's leadership.

The former Ukip leader said the party had already raised "well over" £2 million to fight the European contests, with 90% of it from some 88,000 registered supporters paying £25 each, although a £100,000 donation had also been received.

But he said "much bigger donors, traditionally donors to the Conservative Party" were now in conversations with the Brexit Party "because they understand and realise that to fight a general election seriously we are going to need big bucks”.

Previously loyal Tory donors were "asking themselves the question 'what is the Conservative Party for, what purpose does it actually serve?’".

He claimed the talks between Mrs May's Government and Jeremy Corbyn's Labour to strike a Brexit compromise meant they were forming a "coalition against the people”.

At a press conference in London, Mr Farage said the Brexit Party's door would be open for talks with Eurosceptics from other parties about possible local pacts in constituencies to avoid splitting the vote.

But highlighting the decision by Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab to back Mrs May's Brexit deal at the third time of asking, Mr Farage said it was "very difficult to work out in the final analysis who, in that case, you could really trust" and so the party's priority was to fight a full national campaign.
