Brexit: Nigel Farage says second referendum would "kill off" remainers

Nigel Farage the former Ukip leader who receives £90,215 a year is set to lose £35,000 paid to an aide

The debate was reintroduced when Nigel Farage, the former UKIP leader suggested a second referendum to put an end to the "whinging and whining" of pro-EU voters and politicians, predicting a 52%-48% result for Leave.

The ex Ukip leader, who met with the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Mr Barnier this week, said he has become convinced Brussels is determined to give the United Kingdom a bad deal to punish the country for quitting the bloc.

"We will not be having a second referendum", he said.

European Union auditors said they did not believe that Mr Adams was working on issues related to Mr Farage's work as an MEP.

Although paid as Farage's assistant, Adams was also the national nominating officer for Ukip, where he was described as one of the party's "key people".

"That is how deep my distrust is for career politicians", he wrote.

And businessman Arron Banks, a close ally of Mr Farage who poured funds into Ukip and one of the Leave campaigns, said the vote would have to be re-run.

Mahadayi row; pro-Kannada organisations call Karnataka bandh on Jan 25
But when there was no success in this, a bandh was called on December 27, and it was total in most parts of North Karnataka. He said that Goa will not give even a single drop of Mahadayi river water to Karnataka.

"This poses a big question for Leavers".

But he hit out at the "dishonesty of our political class" and said he feared a second referendum may well be inevitable. Do we stick with the view that the result will stand or acknowledge the fact that we face this potential threat?

Appearing on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff on Thursday, he said: "What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never ever ever give up".

The 53-year-old added: "The percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round".

The people of Lincoln were mixed in their opinions on the matter, with some supportive of the decision as "the government haven't done what they promised", while others think it would be a bad idea and we should just "get on with it".

Mr Farage later said another referendum was "the last thing he wanted".

The party's Brexit spokesman Tom Brake said: "But Farage shouldn't be so confident of winning, people are now far more aware of the costs of Brexit and the fabrications of the Leave campaign.... what will the Leave campaign bus have written on it next time: "let's not fund our NHS, but pay a £39bn Brexit divorce bill instead"?"
