Nigel Farage, the acting leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), said that, unlike in the United States where Donald Trump’s successful bid to become US president led to a "total revolution," the Brexit vote only shuffled the same people around the chessboard.

Brexit, Trump, French Primaries Reveal Opinion Polls are 'Unreliable'
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Nigel Farage, the acting leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), warned the ruling Conservative party they would face problems at the polls in 2020 if they fail to pull Britain out of the European Union, UK media reported Thursday.

"I am not sure what is going to happen over the course of the next couple of years but I suspect there's another big seismic shock in British politics perhaps going to come at the next election," Farage said at a Wednesday night reception, as quoted by the public broadcaster BBC.

Britons will go to the polls on May 7, 2020 to elect a new government. They voted in the Conservative party last year on a promise to hold a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union. A majority supported the exit, talks on which are due to start by the end of March, 2017.

The leave vote prompted then UK Prime Minister David Cameron to step down and triggered a major reshuffle in the government.

Farage said that, unlike in the United States where Donald Trump’s successful bid to become US president led to a "total revolution," the Brexit vote only shuffled the same people around the chessboard.

"We are still being run by the career professional political class," he told the gathering at the Ritz hotel. "It is unfinished business – the people have spoken but the establishment don't want to listen. There are great battles to be fought and I'm going to go on fighting those battles."

Earlier in the week, Trump suggested that Farage become the UK ambassador to the United States, saying in a Twitter posting he would do a "great job." According to the BBC, the British government rejected this proposal by saying the position was already filled.
