His proposed Brexit alliance was rejected by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week.

"The problem is it doesn't get Brexit done. All it does is take us into another three years of agonising negations," Farage said of Boris' amended withdrawal bill.

He appealed to the public, "who have had enough" after three and a half years of uncertainty in the UK.
