Nigel Farage said he would leave the UK if Brexit failed.
He made the comments while speaking to BBC’s Newsnight on Monday, the former UKIP leader admitted that the country had “not actually benefited from Brexit economically” and blamed this on “useless” Tory politicians “mismanaging” the departure from the bloc.
Farage went on: “We haven’t benefited from Brexit economically when we could have done.
“What Brexit has proved, I’m afraid, is that our politicians are about as useless as the commissioners in Brussels were.
“We have mismanaged this totally.”
As LBC wrote: “Nigel Farage 2017: “If Brexit is a disaster, I’ll go and live abroad.”
“Nigel Farage 2023: “Brexit has failed.”
“@mrjamesob: “It’s a shame of course that we’re not in the EU anymore because then there’d be 27 countries to which he could move – more or less freely.”
