LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) – The chief of Britain’s Brexit Occasion, Nigel Farage mentioned on Friday he would go on campaigning for years to come back, setting out an agenda past securing an exit from the European Union, targeted on reforming the nation’s political system.
The Brexit Occasion, initially seen as a pivotal participant in Britain’s Dec. 12 election, has fallen in opinion polls after deciding to not contest seats held by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservatives to keep away from splitting the pro-Brexit vote.
Farage himself will not be standing within the election.
On Friday, the get together launched a “Contract with the Folks” which grouped collectively its coverage proposals on points starting from tax breaks to electoral reform, and promising to battle for “A Political Revolution”.
Requested whether or not he would proceed as chief of the Brexit Occasion if it didn’t win any seats in parliament, Farage mentioned: “No matter position it’s in, I’m going to go on campaigning for years to come back on most of the issues which can be there in that doc.”
“We have already modified the panorama of politics, and we are going to change it very rather more drastically within the years to come back.”
Farage, 55, was one of many driving forces behind Britain’s determination to carry an EU referendum in 2016, and the next vote to go away the bloc. He is likely one of the nation’s most recognisable politicians and an elected member of the European Parliament.
Regardless of stepping again from front-line British politics after the Brexit vote, he made a return earlier this yr as a result of he felt the kind of exit being proposed by the federal government didn’t characterize what folks voted for.
His get together advocates a clear break from all EU establishments, a tougher stance than that envisaged by Johnson, and is hoping to win seats from the opposition Labour Occasion that can permit it to place stress on the Conservatives. (Reporting by William James; modifying by Stephen Addison)
