After losing the UKIP leadership election, anti-Islam campaigner Anne Marie Waters is set to start her own party, supported by former EDL leader, Tommy Robinson.
The former Ukip leader is backing controversial politician Roy Moore in his bid for the US Senate.
Nigel Farage has been roundly mocked online after he posted a video on Twitter that showed him delivering a letter of complaint to BBC Director General Tony Hall.
Nigel Farage has claimed that European leaders are responsible for the terror attack in Barcelona, which left at least 14 people dead. The Brexit champion told Fox News in the US that blame for the attack must be directed at leaders such as Germany’s Angela Merkel. “There is no understanding of why this is going on and not once, not once, do we ever hear a single leader in Europe offer any policy solution whatsoever,” said Farage.
Nigel Farage could be about to hit Hollywood as a major TV series about Brexit is reportedly in the works. The £60m, six-part series is based on the book ‘The Bad Boys of Brexit’ by Ukip donor and Brexit campaigner Arron Banks. Mr Farage was a key player in the EU Referendum campaign and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is said to be one of the front-runners to play him.
James O’Brien, who presents Newsnight on BBC2, said on his LBC show that ‘alt-right’ politicians – including the Donald Trump administration – were “exploiting” the 11-month-old and his family. Trump and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage have both spoken out on how little Charlie should be allowed to be flown to the United Stated for experimental treatment, going against the advice of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) doctors. O’Brien said that recent comments made by US Vice President Mike Pence made him realise why right-wing politicians have spoken out so much about Charlie.
Nigel Farage has lashed out at JK Rowling after she suggested he was to blame for ‘radicalising’ people against Muslims. The Harry Potter author was reacting to the Finsbury Park mosque attack, which saw worshippers observing Ramadan attacked by a man driving a van. The suspect, Darren Osborne, is then said to have been heard shouting that he wanted to “kill all Muslims”.
The fallout from last week’s General Election result continues, with new reports suggesting that Theresa May could be under pressure to give a top job and a peerage to Nigel Farage. A source told The Sunday Times that Mrs May has been warned that she should keep the former UKIP leader on side by potentially offering him a job as a Brexit negotiator – or a UKIP relaunch could result, taking votes from the Tories come election time. In news that may be music to the ears of disenfranchised UKIP voters, the paper’s source says that senior Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) members – and Farage allies – are keen to have him on board.
Nigel Farage abruptly ended an interview with a German journalist after being quizzed over his links to Russia. The former UKIP leader had the reporter ushered out of his office after he asked questions about a meeting with a Russian minister and his visit to see Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in March. After getting increasingly frustrated with Dobbert’s line of questioning, he asks the journalist to leave, claiming the reporter was a ‘nutcase’ and should host a “comedy show”.
Nigel Farage has nailed his colours to the mast and fully endorsed Marine Le Pen to be the next president of France. The former Ukip leader described a Le Pen win as “best for our country”, arguing that it would help destroy the “failed project” that is the EU. Writing in The Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “From a UK perspective, as we enter tough negotiations, what is best for our country?
Nigel Farage could be contemplating running in the upcoming general election. Following prime minister Theresa May’s announcement on Tuesday morning of her plans for a snap poll on June 8, Mr Farage met with senior Ukip figures to plot his next move.
Mark Reckless has announced that he is leaving UKIP to join the Conservative group in the Welsh Assembly. In a letter, the politician announced that he was leaving the party ‘positively’, having achieved the ‘joint aim’ of leaving the European Parliament. Now we are, under a Conservative government.
The Belgian also claimed that the row over Brexit was a “catfight that got out of hand” and that Britain would one day try to rejoin the EU. Verhofstadt, one of the EU’s leading Brexit negotiators, was speaking in Brussels at the European Parliament as MEPs voted on negotiation plans for the UK’s exit.
Brexit will eventually be reversed, the EU Parliament’s chief negotiator has claimed. Guy Verhofstadt said Britain’s exit from the EU was little more than a “stupid Tory cat-fight” that got out of hand. “There will be, one day or another, a young man or woman who will try again, who will lead Britain again into the European family once again,” the former Belgian prime minister said.
Nigel Farage has said he will quit the UK if Brexit turns out to be a disaster. The former Ukip leader, who campaigned vigorously for Britain to leave the EU, told listeners of his radio show that he will emigrate if things go awry.
Ukip’s only MP has vowed that he is “100%” behind the party after claims that he was planning to rejoin the Conservatives. Douglas Carswell pledged his loyalty to Ukip after Nigel Farage deepened a long-running feud between the two by claiming that the Tory defector had never left the Conservative Party. ‘I’m 100% Ukip’, he firmly told the Press Association.
For years Nigel Farage demanded that we take back control. Unelected Brussels politicians were taking over the UK, he said. A tyrannical Bonapartist threat was sweeping over the continent. The Eurocrats were telling us how loud our lawn mowers were. It was a democratic emergency.
The official line-up for this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has been announced, with everybody from Scarlett Moffatt to Larry Lamb taking part in the hit ITV reality show. The former UKIP leader was apparently offered the huge sum by ITV but he opted out of taking part because he doesn’t want to ruin his political credibility. Despite this, Nigel is said to be keen to take part in Celebrity Big Brother, but he expects too much money from producers.
