Leave campaigner Nigel Farage has warned that Brexit is “on the verge of being betrayed” and Leavers must be prepared to continue the fight either in the face of Article 50 being delayed or a possible second referendum.
Speaking to Sky News on Friday morning, the Brexit architect said that while 498 MPs had voted for Article 50, the mechanism for leaving the EU which states that if a withdrawal agreement is not negotiated, the and the United Kingdom should leave the bloc on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms on March 29th, he fears “that our political establishment, including our Prime Minister… [in] the House of Commons is going to effectively overturn that Brexit.”
“To me, the most likely outcome of all of this is an extension of Article 50,” he said.
“Secondly, it’s the worst-case scenario, but there could be a referendum. What I do know is that the Remain side is well-funded, well-organised, and ready for a second referendum,” he added, saying it would be “negligent” for Leavers to not be prepared.
