Facebook TwitterNigel Farage has announced he will stand down as the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), saying “I’ve done my bit” to get Britain out of the European Union. He said UKIP was “in a good position” following the EU referendum and that his political ambition had been achieved. “I came into this struggle from business because I wanted us to be a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician,” Farage said. Thank you to all my supporters in @UKIP and beyond. Delighted with the result we fought for so long to achieve. #BrexitBritain — Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) July 4, 2016 Related Topics:featured postNigel FarageUKUKIP Advertisement You may like NBC Releases Emotional Promo For Upcoming Princess Diana Special ‘You’re Not Laughing Now’ Nigel Farage Tells European Parliament UK Churches Join In Prayer for Aftermath of ‘Brexit’ Click to comment Trending Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon5 days ago Zendaya Talks Preparing For Her Role In The Greatest Showman, Working With Zac Efron James Corden2 days ago Zendaya, Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman Join James Corden To Perform “The Greatest Showman” Musical Number (Video) Hillsong Worship4 days ago Hillsong Worship Receives Grammy Nomination For “What a Beautiful Name” A Christmas Story Live5 days ago Cast of FOX’s A Christmas Story Live Talk Choreography and Rehearsals (Video) Grace VanderWaal5 days ago Grace VanderWaal Gets Real About Confidence And Being Yourself (Video) Netflix2 days ago Netflix Responds to FCC’s Repeal of Net Neutrality Rules Top Story2 days ago “The Simpsons” Predicted the Disney-FOX Merger (of Course) The Greatest Showman2 days ago Listen to “The Greatest Show” From The Greatest Showman Soundtrack Now!
