Nigel Farage will form a new pro-Leave party following last week's dramatic Ukip implosion and promises to fight for the next EU election if Brexit is delayed.

The Brexit world champion protested much of Ukip's big numbers in protest at the position of the "new BNP" after warning the party leader, Gerard Batten, in a dramatic warning that Ukip's relationship with the Anti Islam activist Tommy Robinson has to give up.

Mr Farage has taken on a number of senior Ukip figures, including former Chief Executive Paul Nuttall and Scottish Chairman David Coburn, both European Parliament colleagues at Farage.

Now, Farage and his colleagues are planning to start a new party to defend Brexit in a possible second referendum, or if a parliamentary election is triggered by the deadlock in Westminster.

A source said, "Nigel has made a party out of nowhere the first to win a national election since 1906, which was neither Labor nor Tory in the 2014 European elections. He could do it again. "

And they hope to "wedge" the divided conservatives and attract hard-hitting Brexit MPs disillusioned by Theresa May's deal.

Mr Farage promised to fight under the banner of his unnamed party in the European elections next May if the two-year EU divorce process under Article 50 is extended beyond next March.

He told The Mail on Sunday: "In my opinion, Article 50 is being extended so far. Are there many discussions about what happens then? Yes. If the Brexit ball is dropped completely, this must happen. "

He added, "Look, I'll make that very clear if they suspend Article 50 and we fight in the next European elections, I'll be there."

However, Mr Farage insisted that he did not want to be a Member for more than necessary, adding, "I can not wait to leave. I was there for 19 years and 8 months on Brexit Day. That's a damn long time. "

It goes without saying that Mr Farage wants to use the Leave Means Leave campaign group as a start-up aid for his young movement.

Leave Means Leave chief Richard Tice said on Friday that his group had already won a second referendum for the BBC. He told the BBC: "We believe it will be 50:50 that it will happen." He added that there would be a repeat of the Brexit fight brutal, it would be ugly, it would be the most divisive thing this country has ever seen, but I'm sorry to say we're preparing for it. & # 39;

Sources within the group indicated that their office space and equipment could easily be transferred to a political party after registering with the Electoral Commission.

In the meantime, in response to Mr Farage's attack, Ukip leader and colleague Gerard Batten stepped out of the European Parliament's "Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy" led by Mr Farage on Friday.

Mr Batten will join Robinson on a march through Whitehall today amid fears of clashes with anti-fascist protests.

Mr. Farage warned his former party to attend the Brexit betrayal, fearing that it might incite the anti-EU cause and force it into action.

Last night, the anti-racist group "Hope Not Hate" blew up the event as "a cynical attempt by some of Britain's most extreme voices to join in hatred against Muslims and other minorities to exploit the tensions of Brexit and sow discord and hatred ".
