Ex-Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has refused to rule out standing in the next general election. Mr Farage revealed he had not “given up” on the idea of contesting another election during an appearance in Boris Johnson’s constituency yesterday.

Speaking to GB News viewers in South Ruislip, Mr Farage said: “If it was proportional representation, I’d do it without hesitation.

“As it is, it needs a lot of thought but I haven’t given up.”

Mr Farage arrived in Mr Johnson’s West London constituency of Uxbridge & South Ruislip for his People’s Forum programme.

The former MEP discussed key issues with local residents and GB News guests, including climate change and migrants crossing the English Channel.

Mr Farage, who led UKIP and the Brexit Party to electoral victory in the 2014 and 2019 EU Parliamentary Elections, previously hinted at making a political comeback during a Bitcoin event in Amsterdam.

Speaking in the Dutch capital, he said: “I won the 2014 and the 2019 European elections – the second one by a landslide.

“I won two national elections that were contested under PR but on the first pass the post – four million votes, only one seat.

“And I think when we get proportional representation, we’ll see people back in politics with real convictions.
