Farage has salary slashed to recoup 'misspent funds'

Mr Farage told Channel 5's The Wright Stuff a fresh vote could "kill off" the Remain campaign for a generation.

Last month Mr Farage raised eyebrows when he said he was "skint" at 53 years old, despite being entitled to the £90,000-a-year MEPs' salary and living in a £4 million townhouse. Pro-EU campaigners said "support is growing" for another referendum.

Nigel Farage yesterday sparked rumours that the United Kingdom may go back to the polls over the decision to leave the EU. But Adams was also appointed to work within the anti-EU UKIP party in Britain as national nominating officer with his salary coming from the EU funds.

"We will not be having a second referendum", he said.

"What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never, ever, ever give up". They will go on whinging and whining and moaning throughout this process.

The former UKIP boss has regained the political limelight this week after appearing to call for a second referendum on Britain and the EU.

"We should just get on with it". He said there are "fantastic" manufacturing figures emerging following the Brexit vote.

"Promises before the referendum like £350m extra per week for the NHS have evaporated and it looks like the Conservative government is going to give billions of pounds to Brussels for worse trade arrangements than we have now".

Tom Brake, Brexit spokesman for the Liberal Democrats, said: "Farage shouldn't be so confident of winning". But the other side of the Brexit debate were more enthusiastic.

Maajid said "Nick Clegg agrees with Nigel. It is about implementing the democratically expressed wishes of the British people in a serious and sensible way".

The Lib Dems vowed that in any referendum, they would be "leading the charge" to keep Britain in the EU.

Auditors were investigating the role of Christopher Adams, a man who was hired by Mr Farage to work as his assistant in the European Parliament.

Mr Farage, who played a pivotal role in securing the vote to leave the European Union, suggested on a second vote would draw a line under criticism by key Remainers, such as Tony Blair, Lib Dem former deputy prime minister Sir Nick Clegg and Labour ex-cabinet minister Lord Adonis.
