Farage Bottles It?

Nigel Farage has said he will not stand as an MP in the upcoming election.

He said: “I’ve thought about it very hard. I thought ‘How do I serve the cause of Brexit best?’ Because that is what I am doing this for  not for my career, not to be in politics for the rest of my life. Do I find a seat? Try to get myself into parliament? Do I serve the cause better traversing the length and breadth of the United Kingdom supporting the 600 candidates? And I’ve decided the latter is the right one.”

Mr Farage said he will spend his time travelling around Britain to explain to people what Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal will mean for the country.

Outspoken Farage has failed unsuccessfully in seven attempts to run for parliament as a UKIP candidate and maybe has got the message he doesn’t win votes?
