Brexit is just the beginning! Farage vows to DESTROY establishment – 'It doesn't work'

The former Ukip leader made the passionate speech at a rally attended by around 700 activists as the party ramps up support ahead of the European elections on May 23. Earlier this week, Nigel Farage said voters were fed-up of miserable politicians “endlessly threatening” them over Brexit as his new party rocketed ahead in the polls. He said the public wants a fresh positive vision and he is planning to unveil new candidates for the European elections next week.

The Brexit Party leader has launched a fresh attack on the dominant two-party establishment, and said: “Our intention is to fight these European elections and our intention is to win these European elections.”

“We have not formed this party just to protest, just to stick two fingers up to the establishment on May 23, just to get our own back and tell them what we think of them.

“No, our ambitions are much, much higher than that. I think it’s obvious that our two-party system simply doesn’t work any more.

“I am not, after 25 years of fighting and campaigning for our country to be free and independent, I am not prepared to stand aside – I am not prepared to be rolled over by our career politicians.”

“I think it’s obvious that our two big parties serve nothing but their own interests and agenda rather than the nation more broadly.”

Mr Farage also drew laughter as he said he had spent two decades in the European Parliament and had “enjoyed it more than they have”.

The Brexit Party leader added: “I genuinely thought after 498 MPs voted for Article 50 that we would leave the European Union on March 29.

“I genuinely thought that I had played my part in turning around history and the future of our country. I was perfectly happy to cease involvement in frontline politics.”

Mr Farage’s latest attack comes after he last week vowed the Brexit Party can put the “shattered” system “out of its misery” as he appealed for voters to begin a “political revolution”.

He took aim at the Conservative Party and Labour Party, claiming the UK is being held back by “weak leadership”.

The sister of Tory Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg, who will stand for the Brexit Party in the East Midlands region at next month’s European elections, also hit out at the “broken political system”.

Annunziata Rees-Mogg, who twice stood unsuccessfully for election to Westminster as a Tory, raged the Conservative position under Theresa May was “confused”, with “no leadership”.

Speaking before the rally in Nottingham, she said: “I will be standing in the East Midlands, where I live with my family, and fighting to represent the people of the East Midlands – all of the counties – in order to ensure the Brexit they voted for is actually delivered.

“I think our politics is broken. It’s been very clear that we have got a Remainer parliament trying very ineffectually to represent the Leave vote.

“We need Leave representatives to fight the corner of our democracy.”

Support for the Brexit Party ahead of the upcoming European elections is surging.

A YouGov poll of 1,855 adults from April 15-16 conducted for the People’s Vote placed it on 27 percent – almost doubling from 15 percent during the last poll from April 10-11.

Labour followed in second with 22 percent (down from 24 percent) and the Conservatives a distant third on just 15 percent (down from 16 percent).
