Nigel Farage, the former leader of UKIP, has said that there may be a second referendum on leaving the European Union and that the leave campaign should be prepared for it. Farage said that although he didn’t want a second referendum he felt that it might “kill off” future demands for a vote.
Farage said earlier today on Twitter:
“Maybe, just maybe, we should have a second referendum on EU membership. It would kill off the issue for a generation once and for all”.
He later clarified his position by posting another Tweet saying:
“The last thing I’ve ever wanted is another EU referendum, but I fear it may be forced upon us. We have to be prepared”.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister said though there are no plans for a second referendum.
