Farage will not stand in December General Election

Leading Euro sceptic Nigel Farage will not stand as an MP in the December 12th General Election.

The Brexit Party leader believes he’s best served spreading his anti-Brexit message across the UK.

Mr Farage, 55, stood seven times as a UKIP parliamentary candidate – and lost everyone.

He said on the Andrew Marr Show: “I’ve thought about it very hard.

“I thought ‘How do I serve the cause of Brexit best?’

“Because that is what I am doing this for – not for my career, not to be in politics for the rest of my life.

“Do I find a seat?

“Try to get myself into parliament?

“Do I serve the cause better traversing the length and breadth of the United Kingdom supporting the 600 candidates?

“And, I’ve decided the latter is the right one.”

Mr Farage plans to tour the country, explaining why he believes Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal is flawed.

Mr Farage has been an MEP since 1999, representing South East England.
