Former Leader of UKIP and one of the most vocal supporters of the Leave campaign during the Brexit vote, Nigel Farage, claims that he might support the idea of a second Brexit vote.
Farage claims that having a second referendum will “kill off” the idea of there being doubt in the mind of the voters, and will give the country a better mandate. He also said that the voices of those who want the UK to leave the European Union will not be stopped. Speaking to Channel 5, Farage said:
“The Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never ever, ever give up,” he said, referring to people in the “Remain” camp including former Prime Minister Tony Blair. “They will go on whingeing and whining and moaning all the way through this process so maybe, just maybe, I’m reaching the point of just thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership,”
“I think if we had a second referendum on EU membership, we’d kill (the issue) off for a generation. The percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time around and we may just finish the whole thing off and Blair can disappear off into total obscurity,” he added.
In the Summer of 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU with a 52-48 points margin.
