Brexiteer Nigel Farage argued that he wasn’t willing to give up his hopes of leaving the EU after fighting for it for 25 years. He added that he would be leading his new Brexit party in these elections and MPs and Theresa May would be surprised about the impact they would have in the EU elections. While speaking on Sky News he said: “I’ll be leading the Brexit party into those European elections as it now looks certain that they will happen.
“Am I happy about it? No, I am not actually as I’ve got many other things in my life I would like to do.
“I thought we won the Brexit battle.
“But after 25 years of endeavour, I am not going to just watch British politicians just roll us over.
“Nope, this is the fight back and they are going to be very surprised by what they get.”
Sky News host Isabel Webster then asked whether Mr Farage agreed with Jacob Rees-Moggs latest Tweet where he expressed his outrage of the prospect of a long extension.
The Tweet read: “If a long extension leaves us stuck in the EU we should be as difficult as possible.
“We could veto any increase in the budget, obstruct the putative EU army and block Mr Macron’s integrationist schemes.
Mr Farage replied: “I have been trying to do that for 20 years in the European Parliament.
“I have done my best but it is very hard to stop them.
“We can do all the things Mr Rees-Mogg asked for but only with a very different Prime Minister.”
Donald Tusk is expected to propose a long extension to Article 50 in the April 10 emergency conference.
He hopes to extend the date to 31 March 2020 with an option of an early exit if Theresa May’s deal is ratified.
This has caused outrage among Brexiteers who feel this is a step closer to delaying and preventing Brexit as it would mean that the UK would have to take part in upcoming European elections in May.
