Nigel Farage quotes

Ukip have had a huge transformative effect on British politics, but the job is far from done. We may have helped to win the war with the referendum, but winning the peace is of equal importance. I will help and support Paul Nuttall through this time and I expect him to emerge as a strong voice for what many millions want.feedback

Today we are told that unless you vote for Mrs May, a progressive alliance of Labour, Lib Dems and the SNP will form the next Government and reverse the Brexit process. For the moment, there are many - including some Ukip supporters - who believe it. As the next few weeks unfold, and the sheer ineptitude of Corbyn's Labour is witnessed by the public, the Tory poll lead will be of such a magnitude that the pro-EU progressive alliance argument will disappear. The certainty of a large Conservative majority and knowing that the Remainers have been trounced, will see Ukip voters coming home.feedback

In 2015, fear of the SNP dominating a Labour government was used to drive UKIP voters to the Tories and it worked.feedback

You can see Theresa May try to stop the same thing again about a progressive alliance that would try to stop Brexit from happening. Actually that's going to wither over then next few weeks. We should have kicked him out two years ago. He was very much responsible for division in the party. When you have someone [like me] who has been a dominant figure as leader, my critics would say domineering and they would probably be right too, when that person goes, there is bound to be a period where we need to settle down.feedback

A bit of me says what happened last time in South Thanet was so monstrous there that they wouldn't dare try it again, so I think if I did run I would win it. I'm still leading a group in the European parliament. I've got to weigh up, where am I best to be to have an impact on Brexit and perhaps warning the British people it's not going in the direction it should be – Strasbourg or trying to get a seat in Westminster?feedback

Many Trump voters will be worried about this intervention. Where will it end?feedback

Mark's decision to join the group is testament to the strength and unity of the Welsh Conservative team in Cardiff Bay which provides the only real opposition to a tired and complacent Labour administration.feedback

I have always liked Mark Reckless, but if he thinks he can just leave after being elected on a list system that is very dishonourable behaviour. He is clearly close to Douglas Carswell, I guess some kind of pressure's been put on him. Since being elected to the Senedd last year, Mark has proven himself to be a hard-working and dedicated AM who has been an effective representative for the South East Wales region. He will now be able to continue this work as part of a strong and united team which will be the official opposition in the Assembly.feedback

They're gangsters, they're gangsters. They are saying look, you give us 60 billion euros or we are not even gonna talk to you. It's a figure that has been clearly plucked out of the air. It has absolutely no basis in the Treaties because we have triggered Article 50 and in two years time we have no future liabilities.feedback

I will be very sad to see the back of him. Unlike Mr Carswell I have always thought him an honourable person. I'm sure the pressure on him has been enormous over the last week.feedback

You have been vindictive and nasty. You are behaving like the mafia.feedback

If you wish to have no deal, if you want to force us to move from the table, we will.feedback

If you continue down this route it won't just be the UK that triggers Article 50, there will be many more to come.feedback

Mr Verhofstadt tells us that we cannot discuss trade deals with any other country in the world until we have left the EU. That has no basis in treaty laws whatsoever. We don't have to buy German motorcars, we don't have to drink French wine, and we don't have to eat Belgian chocolate. We can get these things elsewhere. You will hurt your people and your companies if you continue down this route.feedback

The response to the triggering of Article 50 has been all too predictable. Already you have made a series of demands that are not just unreasonable but in some cases impossible for Britain to comply with. You began by telling us that Britain would have to pay a bill! A cool 52 billion sterling, a figure that has clearly been plucked out of the air, effectively a ransom demand. What you could have done is acknowledge that we have put net over 200 billion sterling into this project, we're actually shareholders...and you should be making us an offer we can't refuse - to go.feedback

We are not some little nation that's going to get bullied around by overpaid, unelected eurocrats – we will simply not put up with it!feedback

I can still, to be honest with you, scarcely believe today has come.feedback

The strength of (the U.K.'s) position is this, no deal is better for us than the current deal we have got… When you start from a position where the worst-case scenario is better than where you are now, it's not all bad.feedback

The White House is very positive about the Anglo-American relationship in terms of trade, in terms of security, in terms of defense. They look on with incredulity that a British prime minister is told by a Brussels based bureaucrat that we are not allowed to sign a deal.feedback

If Brexit is a disaster, I will go and live abroad. I will go and live somewhere else...it isn't going to be a disaster. We've just managed to get ourselves in a lifeboat off the Titanic.feedback

The problem with multiculturalism is that it leads to divided communities. We finished up with very divided communities. I'm sorry to say we ended up with a fifth column living inside these European countries. The idea that this whole country is united tonight, which is what we are hearing from our leaders, I'm not sure is true.feedback

Do you know what that means? We'll start making more things here in this country. How is it political suicide to make your own laws in your own country? Do you loathe democracy so much? What is wrong with running your own country?feedback

The point about Ukip is what terms we leave the European Union under.feedback

Obviously I am very, very pleased that he has gone. He has worked against us, he was undermined us willfully for the last couple of years.feedback

I have been deeply frustrated that the party has not been wise enough to stare the truth in the face and deal with it.feedback

For Donald Trump to use a term like 'somewhat vindicated' is mastery of understatement, isn't it? I should think he's pleased that he has been proved to be right.feedback

The time has now come to have a clean break. To make sure we don't have influences like Carswell taking us away from the key arguments like immigration. There have been some in Ukip who want to turn us into a mainstream political party with very bland messages, and I would say Ukip is a radical party or it is nothing.feedback

Because we already know the European Union wishes to expand. And eastwards expansion by nations, history tells us leads to conflict. We are on a collision course with Putin's Russia and I think if these people in these institutions have more power, they are likely to use it.feedback

I think that the attitude of the European Union right now is they firmly believe that Brexit is it. That no other countries are going to leave. And I think they're wrong. They will go on defending their model and I am not saying that Frexit is going to happen this year but is it going to happen in three or four years I firmly believe that it will.feedback

I think that what's interesting is to see the way the Trump victory has been used by Mr Verhofstadt, by Mr Juncker saying, the Americans are leaving Europe, therefore we have to have our own European army, oh and they want nuclear weapons now as well.' Actually Mr Trump does not want to withdraw from Europe at all, he just wants NATO members to pay their fair share. I would view the full development of a European army with its own foreign policy and its own nuclear weapons actually as being something potentially quite dangerous.feedback

[Trump] is entitled to do this, he was voted in on this ticket. I do agree with it. If you look at Mrs Merkel's policy which is to let in anyone anywhere, look what it's done.feedback

Now that we are delaying the triggering of Article 50, what it means is that we will miss the summit of European leaders on April 6 at which Brexit could practicably have been discussed.feedback

I am happy that there is someone compared to whom I can look like a pretty moderate politician.feedback

We're winning! What I do know is if the challengers don't get over the line this year, they will shift the center of gravity of the entire debate.feedback

Blair is yesterday's man. He seems to think we are going to change our minds. He clearly hasn't grasped that, if that referendum was held tomorrow, the margin would be at least three times bigger.feedback

I was fed up, frankly, with nationalist and populist messages being paraded around.feedback

In political terms it would be completely illogical for 5-Star to join the most euro fanatic group in the European Parliament.feedback

I certainly am, I can't wait. The governor of Mississippi has invited me and I'm there for a few days and it's going to be a great, historic event. In America they've had a political revolution and it's complete; the problem in Britain is our revolution is not complete because the same people are still in charge.feedback

We don't even have a british passport anymore. We have a European Union one!feedback

This vote looks to me to be more about the euro than constitutional change.feedback

UKIP's success in this referendum that says to people that normally who don't bother to vote because they assume they're going to get beaten by the establishment ... actually if you go out there and you turn out, this rotten, liberal establishment can be beaten.feedback

The problem we have in this country is that whilst the people have spoken the same players have just been shuffled around the chessboard and we're still being run by the career professional political class.feedback

I suspect there is another big seismic shock in British politics, perhaps going to come at the next election.feedback

I don't think I am the ambassadorial type, I mean, whatever talents or flaws I have got, I am not sure diplomacy is necessarily at the top of my list of skills.feedback

I'm very flattered by the comments and I have said since I met the President-elect that I would like to do anything I can to act in a positive way to help relationships between our two countries.feedback

Brexit Britain means huge global opportunities. One of the first places the U.K. should start is in the U.S. with Donald Trump.feedback

The world has changed and its time that Downing Street did too.feedback

He was relaxed and full of good ideas. I'm confident he will be a good President.feedback

That Obama creature, loathsome individual, who cannot stand our country, said we'd be back of the queue ... what was interesting is that Trump said we would be in the front of the queue.feedback

He (Donald Trump) is getting exactly the same kind of voters that we got in Sunderland and those other cities that produce massive shock results. It's people who haven't voted for 20 years, haven't voted in their lives, re-engaging with the process.feedback

I hand over the mantle to Trump! Many congratulations. You have fought a brave campaign.feedback

2016 is, by the looks of it, going to be the year of two great political revolutions. I thought Brexit was big but boy this looks like it is going to be even bigger.feedback

The whole Trump campaign sees Brexit as an inspiration. And no day goes by when he does not refer to it. The battle against the big business and political elites is very similar.feedback

Believe you me, if the people in this country think they're going to be cheated, they're going to be betrayed, then we will see political anger the likes of which none of us in our lifetimes have ever witnessed.feedback

I now fear that every attempt will be made to block or delay the triggering of Article 50. If this is so, they have no idea of the level of public anger they will provoke.feedback

As an anti-establishment campaigner in Britain for two decades, I have seen the establishment in my country cheat. I understand Trump's frustration, taking on the establishment. But I would suggest this to Donald Trump, he needs to move it on.feedback

I've been there myself. I remember my first big debate, how nervous I felt, how out of my depth I felt. What you saw tonight was a guy who has done a lot of reality TV over the years, he was comfortable with the cameras, he knew his subject, and was even funny.feedback

We can be very proud of the fact that we won the war but we now must win the peace.feedback

If I was an American citizen, I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me. You have a fantastic opportunity here. You can go out, you can beat the pollsters, you can beat the commentators, you can beat Washington, and you'll do it by doing what we did for Brexit in Britain.'.feedback

I have never wanted to be a career politician, my aim was to get Britain out of the EU and now I feel that I've done my bit, we couldn't have achieved more than that and so I feel it is the right time to stand down. During the referendum campaign I said I want my country back, now I'm saying that I want my life back.feedback

During the referendum campaign, I said I want my country back. What I'm saying today is I want my life back, and it begins right now.feedback

Whilst we will now leave the European Union the terms of our withdrawal are unclear. If there is too much backsliding by the government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters, then UKIP's best days may be yet to come.feedback

There's kind of this consensus that has made people feel slightly embarrassed, ashamed to be patriotic, to believe we should control immigration and so when pollsters ring them, they tend to shy away a little bit.feedback

They were on the wrong side, Barclays certainly was on the wrong side of the markets in a big way. These banks have been badly run anyway for a decade.feedback

Can we all just grow up, stop this absolute scare-mongering nonsense? Can we just end this complete rubbish?feedback

There is this false perception that somehow since we've left the European Union, the city business is going to decline. There is a declining global economy and indeed in Britain, our growth forecasts are down, not because of Brexit, because government borrowing is running way ahead of expectations.feedback

I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in you lives… or worked… or worked in business… or worked in trade… or indeed ever created a job.feedback

Why don't we just be pragmatic, sensible, grown-up, realistic, and let's cut between us a sensible tariff-free deal, and thereafter recognize that the UK will be your friend, that we will trade with you, we will cooperate with you, we will be your best friends in the world.feedback

Why don't we just be pragmatic, sensible, grown-up, reasonable ... and cut a sensible tariff-free deal? The UK will not be the last member state to leave the European Union.feedback

Even no deal is better for the United Kingdom than the current rotten deal that we got.feedback

I've never, ever, ever encouraged or condoned behavior like that, and I never, ever would. The real prejudice is the prejudice that's been there for a decade or more against anybody that dares stand up against the establishment, anybody that dares to say that we shouldn't be part of the EU.feedback

No, I can't". The claim "was one of the mistakes, I think, that the 'leave' campaign made.feedback

I hope this is the first step towards a Europe of sovereign nation states, trading together, neighbours together, friends together, but without flags, anthems, or useless old unelected presidents.feedback

I hope we've knocked the first brick out of the wall. I hope this is the first step towards a Europe of sovereign nations.feedback

The dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom. Let June 23 go down in our history as our independence day!feedback

The dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom! If the predictions now are right, this will be a victory for real people, for ordinary people, a victory for decent people!". The nation's new independence day and he hopes the victory will bring down what he considers the failed European Union project.feedback

I now dare to dream that the dawn is coming up on an independent United Kingdom.feedback

If the predictions now are right, this will be a victory for real people ... Let June 23 go down in our history as our independence day.feedback

The euroskeptic genie is now out of the bottle and it will not be put back.feedback

I apologize for the timing and I apologize for the fact that it was able to be used by those who wish us harm. But I can't apologize for the truth. This was a photograph that all newspapers carried. It is an example of what is wrong inside the European Union.feedback

There was a big momentum developing right across the country – a tragic death, a pause. (It's) Very difficult to know, or to see, in the next three or four days where either of the campaigns go, in terms of the public once again connecting with it. Difficult to tell.feedback

I think the Eurozone is a catastrophe, just look at what they've done to Greece and those Mediterranean countries. The migrant crisis is now not just dividing countries but dividing within countries leading to a whole new brand of politics. The money's run out and yet at the same time they're saving up for the day after our referendum their announcements about a European army and about an increased European budget. The project doesn't work.feedback

I shall miss it enormously. I've had an absolute whale of a time. I shall miss the theatre, I shall miss the drama there's been inside the European Parliament. I'll miss being the pantomime villain. I've just so much enjoyed them all booing at me and shouting. It's been wonderful.feedback

It is the establishment, it is the wealthy, it is the multi-nationals, it is the big banks, it is those whose lives have really done rather well in the last few years who are supporting remaining and against it is the people. Against it is the people.feedback

Since the Treaty of Maastricht, we have been citizens of the European Union. We have to, in this campaign, make people understand that EU membership and uncontrolled immigration are synonymous with each other.feedback

I have never been, and I have never wanted to be, a career politician. My aim in being in politics was to get Britain out of the European Union. So I feel it's right that I should now stand aside as leader of UKIP.feedback

No it is pathetic what the prime minister promised in his famous Bloomberg's speech three years ago when he said if he was re-elected as prime minister, he would have a referendum, he promised fundamental change in Britain's relationship with the EU and indeed reform of the EU itself.feedback

None of that is happening, we are fiddling around the edges with the limited issue of migrant benefits, and even on that, the original proposals has been water downed. So the substance of the agreement, the deal, is limited but the implications of what comes out of tonight is enormous.feedback

So on the deal itself, it's pretty clear that a lot of people will reject it.feedback

I heard the same argument 15 years ago about joining the euro. If you don't join, trading will move to Frankfurt. That was wrong then and it's wrong now. London is a global trading centre. By leaving the EU and doing a deal after we left, we might get a better deal for financial services than we have today.feedback

Your moment has come and, frankly, if you've got the courage, you should lead the Greek people out of the eurozone with your head held high.feedback

We are the only party standing in this general election saying we want a trade deal with Europe. We want to be good neighbours with our European friends but we desperately seek a referendum so that we can set this country free from political union.feedback

We will campaign for this country to have an Australian points-style system to decide who should come and settle in our country.feedback

What we want to do is to change our relationship with the European Union, take back the control of our border and put in place a positive immigration policy, one that the people of Britain will overwhelmingly support, and by that I mean we want an Australian-style point system to decide who comes to live, work and settle in the country.feedback

Only by divorcing ourselves from the EU and taking back control of our borders, can we give the British people what overwhelmingly they would want and support, and we would campaign for this country to have an Australian points-based system to decide who should come and settle in our country.feedback

I loved it. Great speech. He is a very up to date 21st century pope. He gets it. But as he said himself the EU is weary, tired, infertile.feedback

People in Britain are shocked about the changes in every single city and market town since we open the doors to eastern Europe in 2004.feedback

Now there may be some differences in interpretation in terms of environment, we are deeply sceptical about wind energy, because it costs too much money.feedback

We want our money back from Europe, we want our borders back, we want our country back.feedback

But it's going to make a very big difference in domestic politics… Up until now European integration, whether one liked it or not, always seemed to be inevitable. Well, this inevitability will end with these results tonight.feedback

When you boil it down to Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, over a million of their workers are in Britain and only 42,000 British citizens are working in those countries.feedback

Because we feel that their politics, whether their leaderships reflect it or not, within those parties, the Front National certainly, there are still elements of the old anti-Semitic brigade and that's of no interest to us.feedback

We don't want to cut back on EU spending, you are quite wrong with that question. We want to abolish EU spending.feedback

Well, we want to embrace globalisation. We are not an anti-globalisation party. Le Pen is against globalisation, we are not. We want to embrace globalisation. We cannot embrace globalisation as part of a European Union which is stopping us, prohibiting us, from reaching out and having trade deals and agreements with the other parts of the world. Madness.feedback

What we've got in this country is we've got British people being discriminated against in the job market in their own country and that is an outrageous state of affairs; it has led to a bigger division in society across this country than I have seen in my lifetime. And that is plain wrong.feedback

What we had from 1950 until Blair came to power. We had net migration into Britain running at 30,000 to 50,000 a year. We did that for 50 years, it was something that we were relatively comfortable with. We've changed that to something that is now 200,000 to 250,000 people a year net, gross half a million people a year. I don't want to stop immigration but I want us to have control over the quantity and quality.feedback

Well, the nearest comparison that people in Britain have drawn is they've said out posters are a bit like the Conservative Party's posters in the 2005 General Election. Our posters are there to make people think. Our posters are there to provoke a debate and that is happening.feedback

Well, there are some things that matter more than money. Community, cohesion of community matter more, and actually it should be the job of a British government to put the interests of British people first. And millions of British families have been seriously affect by the fact that we now have an open door to 485 million people from Europe.feedback

I want the British contribution to go from £55 million a day to zero.feedback

The election is between us and three parties who deny there is free access to half a billion people; That's the battle that we have got to win first. At the moment there is no cap.feedback

Because I have come into politics at a massive personal financial loss and as I say once I'm dead I think my family should get some long-term benefit out of it.feedback

Why on earth would you listen to the World Bank, or any other global organisation like that? They generally get absolutely everything wrong.feedback

So that when I'm dead that my family will get something.feedback

I think that there is no question that big money – the big multi-national industries have benefited from this. The downside is that as a country, we have to educate their children, we have to provide accident and emergency facilities for them in our hospitals, and we finish up with a large number of our own people unemployed and being paid for by the state. So overall, whilst the big boss may be a beneficiary, overall we are not benefiting from this.feedback

Well, you could argue that I should work without a salary, but I can't afford to do that.feedback

There is no cap at the moment that is worthy of its name. We have no control over the numbers of people coming into Britain and my big concern is that the things in the Mediterranean eurozone are getting so bad is that we may see another huge migratory wave of people and there is nothing that we can do about it. So let's get back control first and then let's have an Australian-style system, a points-based system, where we control not just the numbers that come but also the quality too.feedback

If he wins the election and after he has a negotiation with the European Union, we might in five years time get a vote. Frankly, that isn't good enough.feedback

With these people, there'll never be a right time. Cameron himself has given the clue. He said I don't want a referendum on our EU membership, because I believe it is in British national interest to stay a member, So, what he's saying is to hell with you, I couldn't care less what the British people think. I've decided the right thing is for us to stay a part of this.feedback

And I'm sorry, but after that performance earlier that you gave… and I don't want to be rude, but you know really… you have the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low grade bank clerk. Sir, you have no legitimacy in this job at all, and I can say with confidence that I can speak on behalf of the majority of the British people in saying, we don't know you, we don't want you, and the sooner you are put out-to-grass the better.feedback

We were told that when we had a president we'd see a giant global figure – the man would be the political leader for 500 million people – well I'm afraid what we got was you.feedback

I now think that Gordon Brown's humiliation is such that I hope and believe that it is UKIP that would have delivered the coup de grace and I have no doubt that collecting backbencher's signatures to get rid of him will now become very much easier indeed.feedback

President, nobody else has said it, but I will: well done the Irish! The ratifications should stop now.feedback
