Nigel Farage has addressed the issue of his potential return to frontline politics on GB News. Host Dan Wootton question the possibility of a “revolution” on the right of British politics and asked whether the former UKIP leader was the man for the job.

Nigel Farage previously led both UKIP and the Brexit Party, although he has never been elected as an MP.

Mr Farage said: “I led two very major, and I would argue, albeit it took a long time, very successful insurgences.

“The first was UKIP, the second was the Brexit Party.

“I got rid of David Cameron, I got rid of Theresa May, I’m quite proud of that really.

“However, that was around a single fundamental issue, and also I had proportional representational European elections, which I could win and by doing that change the agenda.

“But you’re also looking Dan at the man who got four million votes and one seat in the 2015 general election.

“What is clear to me, if we’re going to replace this Conservative party, if we’re going to build a new centre to right movement that believes in the individual as opposed to the big corporate, that believes in national security as opposed to just-in-time supply chains and all of those things, what is clear to me is that I absolutely could not do that on my own.

“It would need several major figures to recognise the Conservative party is dead.”

He suggested one of those figures could be Suella Braverman, who was today replaced as Home Secretary by Grant Shapps.

The former politician also referenced the rise of the Social Democratic Party in the 1980s as an alternative to Labour, which has the backing of four former Cabinet ministers.

The centre-left party, which supported electoral reform and integration with Europe, ceased operations in 1988.

Mr Farage continued: “We need to replace the Conservative party, we need something that is sincere, that is genuine, that is not as they all are now centre ground Social Democrats.

“I can’t do that on my own, but if there are other major figures that want this to happen, if there are major media organisations that want this to happen, then it can.

“But I can’t do it on my own.”
