Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Says He Fears for His Life
After Brexit, Nigel Farage believes that his life is in danger and cannot go anywhere without a security detail.
The Hill reports:
Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom’s Independence Party, said he fears for his life and cannot go out in London without his security detail.
“I’ve got no life — I can’t do anything, I can’t go anywhere,” he said in an interview with British tabloid The Daily Express.
Farage, who retired after Great Britain voted to leave the European Union in June, said he has had death threats and was recently threatened with a glass.
“The thought of doing a Friday night pub crawl around Westminster — I just can’t do it any more,” he said.
The British politician has spoken positively of President-elect Donald Trump and his potential as the next commander in chief.
Farage was recently seen in New York City, meeting with Trump at Trump Tower. He said Trump’s win has exacerbated his own problems at home.
“It might diminish, it might not. The America dimension changed everything. It’s been so full-on, unbelievable really,” he said.
The Times reported last week that Farage and his wife were moving to the U.S.
