Nigel Farage will seek a place at the Brexit negotiating table if his nascent political party, the Brexit Party, comes out top in the European elections.
He made the claim as Theresa May’s de facto deputy – David Lidington – appearing to admit defeat in avoiding the May 23 poll. At a press conference on Tuesday, Farage insisted that if his party wins the vote, it will have a democratic legitimacy to have a say in how the UK proceeds in the Brexit negotiations.
Earlier, Cabinet Office minister Lidington told reporters that it’s not going to be possible to finish the Brexit process before the European Parliamentary elections sot hey will have to be held in the UK.
Farage’s party, founded earlier this year, is currently leading the polls in the UK.
