Speaking today Nigel Farage said: "A snap General Election would be good for UKIP, especially in the many Labour held seats in which we were placed second last year. I don't think there is a desire in the country to have such an election though.
“The government must now get on with its job and inspire confidence. Whilst I did not want Mrs May, a Remain supporter, to become Prime Minister she has now said "Brexit means Brexit". To hold faith with over 17 million voters who opted for Leave she must trigger Article 50 at the earliest realistic opportunity. I hope she picks a strong negotiating team.
“UKIP will be watching like a hawk to ensure that there is no backsliding."
