Farage would rather skip out of the UK than face the consequences of the Brexit he demanded

Nigel Farage: Why does he have that smile on his face? [Image: Daniel Leal-Olivas/AFP/Getty Images].

What does this say about Nigel Farage?

To This Writer, it says that he is finally showing his true colours. Having campaigned tirelessly for the UK’s ruin, he is now planning to run away – possibly to the United States – to escape the backlash when the inevitable happens.

In fairness, he stuck around longer than most of the other Brextremists. Michael Gove and Boris Johnson were out the door while we were all still absorbing the result.

David Cameron (not a supporter of Brexit, but the person most directly responsible for what happened because he called the referendum to prevent a threatened split in the Parliamentary Conservative Party) resigned on the day the result was known.

But Farage has spent months crowing about the result.

Now he’s saying he won’t hang around to suffer the fallout.

This should be the final nail in UKIP’s coffin.

Nigel Farage has suggested he doesn’t plan to stick around if Brexit goes badly.

On Monday night on his regular radio show, the former Ukip leader, who has reportedly been waiting to be offered some sort of position in relation to President Donald Trump’s administration for months, said he would skip town if Brexit became an economic disaster.

      Good one Martin. Sounds like a complete rerun of the Financial Bwankers crisis which the UK population is still paying for in many costly ways. Maybe a slightly different vermin strain put just as lethal.

    When exactly did Farage campaign for the UK’s ruin, I know he campaigned for our benefit, and if the unlikely event of brexit going badly wrong, although being conducted by a bunch of remainer’s, he decided to leave that would be his choice, the same as all those remainers who said they would leave if we voted out, but are still here.

      Typical head-in-the-sand reaction from a typical Brexiteer.
      Your icon is planning to run away. Think about it a little harder.

    “It sounds mercenary and it smacks of rats leaving a sinking ship, but get real, when everyone is bailing out, you don’t want to be the last man standing.”

    I would imagine that any Trump offer would be lucrative and nothing much is going happen for a few years yet…..Nige might even get to be up again as MP for Thanet region if the resident Tory is found to have cheated, found shy, on his election expenses. With the Torys having pushed the Brexit Go button I am sure there will now be immense skullduggery going on behind closed doors and in Lodges everywhere to ensure these election expenses fiddles go way permanently so no more precious Tory seats are lost or jeapodised.to another vote run through. With the UKIP party disappearing hopefully there will now be far more Labour votes to reinstate the two horse race. The Libs are an untrustworthy lost cause after their last awful stint in shared power…..

    send him over to America, take Nuttall with him, give them six pounds sledgehammers each and then they could help Trump build the wall, they could even turn this into a charity event by having certain tory MP’S that are fit for nothing go and join them, while there making America great again, we can rest in the Knowledge that we have mp’s doing some hard work and of course they would be okay on minimum wage
