The former Ukip leader told Express.co.uk ahead of his speech for the Leave Means Leave rally in London he was disappointed by the support Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab had expressed for Theresa May’s Brexit deal. Mr Farage claimed the former Foreign Secretary and Brexit Secretary voted for a proposal they themselves have often referred to as “a surrender document” on Friday afternoon.
On Wednesday, the Prime Minister promised her Party she would resign if they voted in favour of her withdrawal agreement.
But when Mrs May tabled a motion for MPs to vote on her divorce proposal separately from the political declaration setting out the future relationship with the UK and the EU, Parliament rejected it for the third time.
For the first time, however, Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab supported the Prime Minister.
Asked who should replace Theresa May and lead the Conservative Party, Nigel Farage responded: “Anybody, anybody! Anyone that believes in Brexit.
“And because of that I think today Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab have ruled themselves out.
“They voted for a treaty that they themselves called a surrender document.
“I can’t take them seriously anymore.”
The British MEP told the crowds in Parliament Square: “Frankly, I believe that what’s happened over there, has not just turned this day that should’ve been one of great celebration into a day that history will mark as a day of great betrayal.
“I believe that what’s happened over the course of two years is actually one of the saddest and worst chapters in the history of our nation.”
Mr Farage said if there were a second referendum, “we will beat them by a bigger majority”.
He added: “It’s about who we are as people – it’s about our children and grandchildren.
“We will get our country back. We will get our pride and our self-respect back.”
