The former Ukip leader has called his European elections 2019 results ‘one hell of an achievement’ after the Brexit Party secured a majority with 31.7 per cent of the votes in the UK.
But could Nigel Farage become prime minister?
He told Good Morning Britain during his glory rounds this morning: ‘When people woke up on March 30 this year, and realised we hadn’t left the European Union, that’s when in large numbers they became ready to vote for a different party.
‘The Brexit Party is only six weeks old, think about it that context, this one hell of an achievement.
‘I would say this looking ahead, the next date we are supposed to leave on is October 31, and that date will become a bigger and bigger factor in people’s minds as these next five months go by.
‘If we don’t leave on October 31, then the Brexit Party will go on to a general election and stun everybody there too.’
After the 2016 referendum, Farage retired as leader of Ukip with intentions to stand down as a member of the European Parliament. However, when he realised the UK would be forced to take part in the European Elections he founded the Brexit Party.
Farage shocked, then prime minister, David Cameron into calling for a referendum after winning four millions of the votes and securing 24 MEPs for Ukip in the 2014 European elections.
This year, with the Brexit Party, he took it one step further and secured 28 seats in Brussels.
So yes, if the European elections results are anything to go by, Farage could win a majority if a general election is called later this year and land in the leading seat.
But if this is his plan, Farage still has a long way to go.
The current plan is to have fresh Tory leadership by the end of July, where the candidate will automatically become Britain’s next prime minister.
Conservatives secured just 9 per cent of the votes and lost 15 seats.
Labour has threatened to call for a vote of no-confidence in the next PM, which could result in a general election.
Farage’s ‘primary goal’ is for the UK to leave EU, and has warned the ‘ball is in their [the Government’s] court’, to deliver Brexit or face humiliation by his party.
However, he admitted he had ‘absolutely no idea’ what will happen over the next months, but said they were ‘getting ready’ for a general election.
Farage said the UK is ‘going to leave’ EU, adding: ‘We just have a few more battles to fight’, after the results came in late last night.
In the meantime, he has demanded that the Brexit Party takes part in negotiations over Britain’s exit from the EU.
He said: ‘Whether it’s me or somebody else at the Brexit Party isn’t really the point. We as a party… should be part of the team’.
When asked if he would work with Boris Johnson if he was elected as Britain’s next prime minister, he said: ‘If it’s to achieve Brexit, I’ll work with anybody.’
He added: ‘We are happy to help any leader who is genuine about us leaving the EU.
‘We would like to be a part of the negotiation team, use us and give us some responsibility, but they need to prepared to leave with a clean break Brexit.’
He also declared: ‘This is just the beginning of a new political movement.’
