Nigel Farage asked if he could deliver true Brexit
Nigel Farage has hinted a return to frontline politics could be on the cards.
The former Ukip leader turned GB News presenter said Brexit has “failed under the Tories” amid record high net migration to the UK.
Mr Farage predicted there will be “another insurgency in British politics” which he said could come from him.
The ex-MEP told Sky News’s Beth Rigby Interviews programme: “I think the gap between Westminster and where people are is even bigger than it was 10 years ago.
“I think there will be another insurgency in British politics. Whether it will be Reform, whether it will be me, whether we get a new [former BNP leader] Nick Griffin.”
The former Brexit Party leader added: “Something is going to change. This gap is too big.”
Mr Farage said he would stand on a “much more revolutionary agenda than just Brexit” if he made a political comeback bid.
Asked if he would return to the frontline in the next five years, he said he might if he has a “really clear achievable goal”.
He said: “I don’t know, I genuinely don’t know. I haven’t ruled it out, I haven’t ruled it in.
“If I could see by doing it there was a really clear achievable goal then I might well. I haven’t worked that out yet.
“If we had an electoral system that was representative in some way, well then it would be much easier.”

The Brexit architect said he accepted no blame for his perceived failings of the UK’s departure from the EU.
He said: “Absolutely none. No, absolutely none.
“I was very, very clear, very, very clear. This was about reducing numbers. It was about moving to an Australian-style point system where you set the barriers and you set the levels so that you get genuinely skilled migration and wilfully Boris Johnson wilfully lowered those salary levels.
“And we’ve also seen this explosion of foreign students coming to Britain, being allowed to bring dependents.”
Mr Farage said that “hand on heart” he was not dishonest about promises he made in the 2016 referendum campaign, including on how migration could be slashed.
He said: “You know what. I have got things right. I might have got things wrong over my years in politics. I would like to think, hand on heart. I was never dishonest.”
Mr Farage also insisted if he were in power he could reduce net migration to 50,000 a year.
He said: “If they put me in charge of it would have got to 50,000 a year, no question about it.”
