Nigel Farage, the man who has spearheaded the cause of Britain’s independence from the European Union, has announced that he will be reclaiming his life by stepping down as leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP).

Farage started by addressing the irony that it is the young Remain protesters who have been marching against the democratic outcome of the referendum, whereas throughout the EU, people have been protesting against undemocratic, centralised control by the bureaucrats in Brussels.

Farage championed solidarity with Commonwealth countries and discarded the “business as usual” attitude of EU-aligned political leaders, who have sold out Britain to the “big business cartel” that is the EU.

Farage reiterated throughout the speech:

“Life outside the European Union is really very exciting, and we’ve got a much better, brighter future being in charge of our own lives,”

Farage highlighted that UKIP is the undeniable third largest political force in the British Parliament, and will play a continuing vital role in securing a good BREXIT deal.

Thank-you Nigel for all you’ve accomplished in this cause for sovereignty from the EU! May God bless you and the family as you savour this victory!
