Brexit campaigner Farage hints at political return over second referendum fears – CNBC
The former U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) leader told BBC on Friday morning that “we may well be looking down the barrel of a second referendum.”
Farage, who resigned as UKIP leader shortly after Britain voted to leave the EU in 2016, suggested a potential coalition government led by left-wing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would put Brexit “in some trouble.”
When asked whether he would consider returning to British politics if he believed Brexit was at risk, Farage replied, “I would have absolutely no choice but to do exactly that.”
By 6:00 a.m. London time, Prime Minister Theresa May’s ruling Conservative party had won 309 while the opposition Labour Party, led by Jeremy Corbyn, winning 258. Meanwhile, the Scottish National Party won 34 seats, the Liberal Democrats are at 12 and the Democratic Unionist Party has secured 10. Voter turnout was at 68.6 percent, according to the BBC.
