"Our politicians had better listen," said the former leader of the UK Independence Party Nigel Farage as he announced via Twitter that his latest political endeavour received mass backing and invited more Brits to sign up.
An MEP for UKIP, Farage, has confirmed that he registered the Brexit Party with the UK Electoral Commission, aiming to take action if "Brexit doesn't happen on March 29." The purpose of the party is to bring "real clarity" on the issue of Brexit, as the public "frustration is welling up" and the political elites are trying to "stop Brexit."
The Electoral Commission have officially recognised The Brexit Party.
It will fight the European elections if Article 50 is extended.
I sincerely hope that this prospect is recognised by both the Conservative Party and the Labour Party as a threat.https://t.co/rtbMmtWqwH
