UK: Farage vows 'democratic revolution' at Brexit Party inauguration

United Kingdom, Coventry
April 12, 2019 at 18:54 GMT +00:00 · Published

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage spoke on stage at the inaugural rally of his newly-formed Brexit Party, in Coventry on Friday, saying he wanted to cause a 'democratic revolution in British politics'.

"I said many years ago that I wanted to cause an earthquake in British politics. Well now, what I'm fighting for, and with your support, what we'll attempt to achieve is a democratic revolution in British politics," said Farage, whose current party will participate in the upcoming European Parliament election from May 23 to 26.

"I do believe that we can win these European elections and that we can again start to put the fear of God into our Members of Parliament in Westminster; they deserve nothing less than that after the way they treated us over this betrayal?" said Farage.

Former Conservative Party member Annunziata Rees-Mogg was announced as the party's European Parliament elections candidate.

"Within the Conservative Party there have been good times, but there have been quite bleak times. Well, I wondered what our leaders were doing and I had serious questions. But I stuck by them through thick and thin," said she.

"But at the point at which our Prime Minister will not listen, not only to her membership, but will not listen to the people of her country, 17.4 million of them, many of whom had never voted before, but believed in bringing back control — I can't sit by and let her do it. It is our fight and we must fight to win," said Rees-Mogg.
