During a dispute about Brexit on the Channel 5 program, Mr Farage stated: “What is for specific is that the [Nick] Cleggs, the [Tony] Blairs, the [Lord] Adonises will never ever, ever, quit.
“They will go on whinging and whining and groaning all the method through this procedure.
“So possibly, simply possibly, I’m reaching the point of believing that we must have a 2nd referendum on EU subscription … and we might simply complete the entire thing off.
“And Blair can vanish off into overall obscurity.”
He stated “the portion that would vote to leave next time would be quite larger than it was last time round”.

‘Don’t be so positive’
Labour MP Chuka Umunna, of the Open Britain project for close ties with the EU, stated: “For possibly the very first time in his life, Nigel Farage is making a legitimate point.
“In a democracy like ours, the British individuals have every right to keep an open mind about Brexit.”

The celebration’s Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake stated: “But Farage should not be so positive of winning, individuals are now much more familiar with the expenses of Brexit and the fabrications of the Leave project … exactly what will the Leave project bus have composed on it next time: ‘let’s not money our NHS, however pay a £ 39bn Brexit divorce costs rather’?”
‘One last fight’
Speaking on his LBC radio program in the future Thursday, Mr Farage stated that his conference with Michel Barnier in Brussels on Monday had actually encouraged him that the EU’s primary Brexit mediator was “not going to provide us a bargain.”
He thought it would be declined by Parliament, where he counted more Tory rebels than Labour Brexiteers prepared to defy their own side.

“There might well be one last remarkable fight that will happen in all this.”
