Nigel Farage, a Brexit activist, has stepped down as the leader of the UK populist Reform Party. On a Saturday night Video posted on Twitter Farage says he will leave “active politics” but will continue to meddle in the public debate.
Farage thinks it was nice “nearly thirty years later” now that his “life’s work” is complete: The UK has left the European Union. In the video, he cites the UK’s leadership over the rest of Europe in vaccination as an example of the benefits the country is now reaping.
Farage, 56, says he will continue to speak out on social media, including against the “growing influence” of China and in favor of environmental issues such as clean oceans. In Reform UK, Richard Tice will succeed Richard Tice Farage.
Farage co-founded the populist right-wing British Independence Party (UKIP) in 1993, which he later chaired. Until 2020, he was a Member of the European Parliament, where he was Co-Chair of the European Group for Freedom and Doubtful Democracy in the European Union. In 2019 Farage left UKIP to become UK Reform Leader.
Nigel Farage Nigel Farrag This is why I will concede as the leader of reform in the UK. I will continue my role through the media, social media, and new projects. I thank the many millions who helped change the course of history forever. https://t.co/F9m0sCAW57
