‘We’ve got them on the run…and we’re here to stay’: Nigel Farage sets sights on a General Election as he tells rally in Scotland the Brexit Party will ‘smash the Tories and Labour’ in Euro vote

  • He said the country’s mainstream parties were ‘genuinely scared’ of Brexit Party
  • He continued his feud with the BBC whose coverage he branded ‘a disgrace’ 
  • Mr Farage also said the Brexit Party would contest general and local elections 

Nigel Farage vowed to cause an earthquake at the centre of British politics in a rallying cry to Brexit Party supporters in Scotland ahead of next week’s European election when he is expected to romp to victory.

Speaking in Edinburgh this evening, he lashed out at the country’s two main parties and also took aim at Nicola Sturgeon for peddling the ‘most dishonest political discourse ever seen in the world’.

To thunderous applause and chants of ‘Nigel!’, he told a packed room that the Brexit Party had got mainstream politicians ‘on the run’ after being ‘stunned’ at the Eurosceptic group’s surge in popularity.

Since the party’s launch five weeks ago, it has been buoyed by a climb up the polls and is the clear front-runner heading into Thursday’s European Parliament election.

And Mr Farage said that the Brexit Party was ‘here to stay’ and would seek to fight the next General Election alongside fielding candidates in the devolved administrations such as the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood.

The arch-Eurosceptic was given a standing ovation as he ended his speech by shouting ‘we are the party of democracy! We are the party of liberty! We are the party of the nation!’

He said: ‘We have been openly and willfully betrayed by our political class… and having spent 25 years of my life having fought election after election and wondering if I would go down in history as the patron saint of lost causes… but I kept going and kept going.’

He also continued his bitter feud with the BBC whose coverage he branded ‘an absolute disgrace’ and hit out at presenter Andrew Marr for dredging up quotes ‘from decades ago’.

The former Ukip leader, who left the party amid claims it had become sympathetic to the far-right, said: ‘I hadn’t expected to see anyone here this evening.

‘Because I have been studying what the SNP say, studying what the media say and studying what the BBC – including that distinguished Scot Andrew Marr – say and I’d been led to believe that there wasn’t a single Brexiteer in Scotland.’

He added: ‘We launched the Brexit Party five weeks ago in a factory in Coventry, and what we have achieved in that time exceeded even my optimistic expectations…

‘The political class are stunned. We’ve got them on the run! We’ve got them genuinely scared and the Tory and Labour votes seem to be genuinely disappearing, as they should!’
