Farage announced earlier his decision to stand down as the leader of the pro-Brexit UKIP party after fulfilling his promise to have Britain out of the European Union. He still holds the office of the European Parliament member for South East England.
"What Nigel will be doing is that he will be in Europe, leading UKIP MEPs in Europe and heading up our group to make sure we get what we were promised – a Brexit. Our job will also be to liberate other countries in Europe that similarly want to leave. That is why he is going to step down from leading the Party because he has a much bigger job in Europe to do," David Coburn said.
He praised Farage for doing more for his country than any other Briton since Winston Churchill, and predicted that the 52-year-old could make a comeback after having a well-earned rest.
"I feel like most people felt when Churchill retired. Nigel has done more than his bit for his country and he has done it more than any man since Churchill. He deserves a rest and you never know he may be back," Coburn said.
"Nigel has a lot of knowledge, he won this referendum. It wasn’t Boris [Johnson], it wasn’t Michael [Gove], it was Nigel. Whatever they try and make out, it was Nigel who won the referendum, UKIP won the referendum. He will do his best from the benches of the European Parliament and will be effective," Coburn promised.
Nigel Farage was first elected as a UKIP member of the European Parliament in 1999 and has been the dominate figure in the party for the past decade.
Britain voted by 52 percent to 48 percent in the June 23 referendum to quit the European Union. The UK government is now expected to invoke Article 50 of the EU Lisbon Treaty to initiate the formal process and start talks with the EU leaders on a new format of their relationship.
