          British Legend Nigel Farage, who just two years ago announced his permanent departure from UK politics, has now vowed to return to campaigning over Brexit once the current interim UKIP leader Gerard Batten reaches the end of his term in March. This comes amid an extremely hectic week for Prime Minister Theresa May as she fights off a rebellion from within the conservative party following the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis.

          The once-businessman dedicated his political career to getting Britain out of the EU chokehold, and currently still serves as a member of the European Parliament for South East England. Nigel Farage used to be the leader of UKIP and was one of the architects of Brexit. Farage blasted the Prime Minister as “awful” and warned that the “latest Brexit betrayal must be reversed”.

          Farage is happy that members of the parliament are standing up, having congratulated former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson for his decision to quit May’s cabinet.

          In a follow-up tweet, Farage said that “unless Brexit is back on track by March 2019, I will seriously consider putting my name forward to return as @UKIP leader. The will of 17.4m voters must be carried out.”

          Some critics are saying that Farage’s bluster comes far too late, as UKIP has no MPs(members of parliament) and won a measly 1.8% of the vote at the last election, which is down by nearly 11% from 2015.

          However, this has in no way affected Farage’s spirit, who said: “I can assure any Conservatives listening to this, sitting in marginal seats, who are not prepared to stand up and honor the wishes of the electorate, I will make damn sure in that situation that you all lose your seats… Because there are millions of Conservative voters very unhappy indeed.”

          Farage has served as UKIP leader between 2006 and 2009 and returned to the job between 2010 and 2016. In September and October 2016, 540-year-old Farage took up the reins for the third time after Diane James’s surprise resignation after 18 days as leader.

          Farage’s announcement comes amid a day of chaos in the Cabinet as the PM faced Boris Johnson and David Davis resigning over her stance on Brexit.

          Farage has largely been revered as a legend of British politics, having been such a vocal maverick against the global elite, who don’t like the ideas of free markets and national sovereignty.

          Farage also commented on what he thought Trump should do when he goes to meet with Theresa May this week:
