Brexit campaigner and MEP Nigel Farage has announced he is stepping down as leader of UKIP.

“I have never been and I have never wanted to be a career politician,” he said in a speech on Monday morning.

“I couldn’t possibly achieve more than we managed to achieve in the referendum. So I think it’s right that I should stand aside as leader of UKIP.”

Anyone know what this is about?  I'm shocked he did this, after the big win for Brexit.

He fought the good fight for 17 years, G.L. and God speed to him, on whatever he does next. Hopefully the next leader will have the same tenacity as Farage did.

The charismatic politician, whose shock resignation yesterday had Westminster reeling, has told friends of his growing concern about a series of death threats made towards him and members of his family by Left-wing thugs.

He is also understood to be worried about the intense pressure that leading the anti-Brussels party has put on his marriage and his family.
