“We no longer have a majority in parliament. I think we would lose the vote in parliament.”
Writing for the Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “To be clear, I do not want a second referendum, but I fear one may be forced upon the country by Parliament. That is how deep my distrust is for career politicians.
“They have a majority in parliament, and unless we get ourselves organised we could lose the historic victory that was Brexit.
However, the former Ukip leader has since sought to clarify his remarks, arguing while he doesn’t want another vote, a second referendum may be inevitable as the EU will offer Britain such a bad deal it will be rejected by Parliament, and the Government will not leave the union without a deal.
“I think that if we had a second referendum on EU membership we would kill it off for a generation. The percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round.
Mr Farage’s remarks have also followed him earlier this week suggesting that he wanted a second referendum on the UK’s EU membership.
Appearing on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff, 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 all the way through this process.
