UK - Nigel Farage Considers Running For London Mayor

Mr. Nigel Farage, the still highly popular UKIP leader who has recently admitted he’s returning to politics simply to make sure Brexit happens the way his voters intended it, said he is considering entering the race to be the next Mayor of London in a move could push the Conservatives into third place in the capital.

Mr. Sadiq Khan, the Labour Mayor of London, is currently the favorite to secure a second term at City Hall when the capital goes to the polls in 2020 but several prominent Londoners have voiced their concern over the way their city is being handled.

For this reason, Mr. Nigel Farage, who US President Donald Trump once stated should be selected as the UK’s ambassador to the US, said the London mayoral election in May 2020 would be an opportunity to “make arguments” on a high-profile platform.

Mr. Farage: “I have been encouraged to stand by a group of people, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to.”

“I haven’t said no to it, I’m thinking about it. The Tory party are very actively aware that if I did stand, they would probably come third, and they are afraid of that.”

A senior Conservative official admitted that Downing Street (the UK Prime Minister’s office) was braced for electoral embarrassment should Mr. Farage indeed enter that contest. Although most Londoners voted against Brexit, it is believed that should a three-way race between Mr. Khan, Mr. Farage and a Tory candidate erupt, the Tories would indeed not stand a chance.

Earlier in the week, Mr. Farage lamented the current state of affairs in London on his radio show, commenting: “I'd never thought I'd see the day where the murder rate in London would overtake that of New York.”

“I wonder whether Sadiq Khan should spend a bit less time slagging off Donald Trump and a bit more time getting to grips with crime in London.”

“Clearly we have a really bad problem.”

Mr. Farage has also claimed, on repeated occasions, that the multi-culture which London has seen in the past few years is to blame, stating: “There are quite big areas of east London that have become wholly Muslim areas.”

If Farage does run, he will need a lot of protection like President Trump. The deep state will not stand for him to win. Farage will be definitely be a thorn in their sides like Trump. London needs and deserves a hero like Farage. Khan is a con.

This could lead up to a run for PM down the track.
