"With a heavy heart, I am leaving Ukip," the former UKIP leader and currently Vice Chairman of LeveMeansLeave campaign noted, adding "it is not the Brexit party our nation so badly needs," as cited by The Telegraph.
"There is a huge space for a Brexit party in British politics, but it won't be filled by Ukip," the politician stated.
In late November, Farage, an enthusiastic pro-leave campaigner, remarked that Britain's withdrawal arrangements added up to the "worst deal in history" for the UK.
According to Farage's campaign page on Twitter, "no deal is better than a bad deal." The bio features calls for the general public to sign up for the page to "help us ensure we make a swift, clean exit from the EU."
Separately, Farage stated earlier that one of the reasons for UKIP's success was that "we'd excluded extremists and focussed on organising and fighting elections." "I warned that any change to this policy would damage the party beyond repair," he summed up while speaking at one of the party conferences in Birmingham earlier this year.
