Nigel Farage fears Brexit could be overturned

  • Nigel Farage has said the historic Brexit referendum result could be overturned
  • Mr Farage said strong Remainer MPs were ‘making all the running’ in Parliament
  • Last week Mr Farage suggested there should be a second Brexit referendum 

Nigel Farage has warned the historic Brexit vote could be overturned by Remainer MPs who are ‘making all the running’.

The former Ukip leader revealed he has become increasingly worried the victorious Leave campaign had stopped making their case to exit the EU and claimed Brexiteers are now outnumbered in Parliament. 

Mr Farage told The Observer: ‘The Remain side are making all the running. They have a majority in parliament, and unless we get ourselves organised we could lose the historic victory that was Brexit.

‘The Leave groups need to regather and regroup, because Remain is making all the arguments.

‘After we won the referendum, we closed the doors and stopped making the argument.

‘We no longer have a majority in parliament. I think we would lose the vote in parliament.’ 

The extraordinary claim came as a group of economists predicted the UK would gain £651bn if it walked away from talks with the EU.

The Economists for Free Trade group said Britain leaving the table would leave the EU with a £507billion bill.  

Last week former Ukip leader Mr Farage was blasted by pro-Brexit supporters after using a live TV appearance to suggest there should be a second referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU.

But he quickly backed down from his initial claim, and described the Brexit referendum as the ‘greatest democratic exercise in the history of our nation’.

But he said he feared a second referendum may well be inevitable.

‘While I want the 2016 referendum result to be honoured, however, and know that a second referendum would create huge uncertainties for Britain, I am beginning to fear that a second plebiscite may well happen anyway.’
