Farage predicts UK political earthquake if Brexit slowed

Farage has repeatedly offered himself up as an intermediary between May and Trump, to which Downing Street has declined.

Farage will be meeting with Trump's transition team in December, a move that has been deemed undermining to Prime Minister Theresa May. It is not known what they plan to discuss.

On Monday, Trump caused a political storm when he tweeted Farage would do a "great job" if he were the UK's ambassador to the US.

Farage has not ruled out working for Trump, saying they have had a good relationship in the past.

"For those that are here who aren't particularly happy with what's happened in 2016, I've got some really bad news for you: It's going to get a bloody sight worse next year", Farage told guests from a staircase at the Ritz to laughs and cheers.

Mr Farage, who is set to step down as Ukip's leader on Monday, joined 120 guests at the Ritz hotel in London on Wednesday evening to celebrate 2016 - a year in which he managed to secure Britain's exit from the European Union after a 25-year battle.

At the Ritz gathering, Farage's supporters gave him a tray of Ferrero Rocher chocolates, a reference to a well-known television ad about an "ambassador's reception" where the gold-wrapped chocolates are served.


"I would do anything to help our national interest and to help cement ties with the incoming Anglophile administration", Farage said.

America has had a total revolution, he said, while Britain has kept the same elite in power.

UK Independent Party interim leader Nigel Farage is planning to move to the US, according to a report in The Timesof London.

'It is unfinished business - the people have spoken but the establishment don't want to listen.

"I don't think I'm going to be made British ambassador, let's be honest", Farage said.

The former/ex/reinstated/interim (delete as applicable) Ukip leader has let slip to friends that he's preparing to move to the USA with his wife Kirsten, according to The Times. While that's not on the cards, other reports this week suggested that Farage - who built his career marshaling anti-immigrant sentiment - was considering emigration to the United States.

But The Times is claiming the 52-year-old is preparing to quit Britain permanently for life stateside, and would feel "freer" from public attention overseas.
