Farage is one of the most popular figures in Britain’s right-wing political scene, and has built a career on using social media to stir up controversy.
Now, the Ukip leader says he doesn’t understand the UK’s decision not to join the EU.
Asked if he thinks the UK could join the bloc in the future, he replied, “I don’t really get it.”
“It is an absolute disgrace, the way the EU is going to be run in the next 20 years,” he said, adding that the country could still leave.
“We could stay inside, but the only way you can get out is by voting Leave.”
In a tweet on Tuesday, Farage said he doesn ‘t understand why Britain is not part of the European Union.
“I don’ t understand why … why Britain has not joined the European community in 20 years.
I don;t understand it.

It’s not clear why Farage believes that Brexit is not an option for the UK.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, he said that the UK would be better off leaving the EU and “returning to what it was like before.”
“If we were to leave the European project, which I believe the British people voted for, we would see a huge boost in our national finances, and that would be a huge benefit for our country.””
It’s got the highest standard of living in Europe, the lowest rate of inflation in the world, and a low unemployment rate,” he explained.
“If we were to leave the European project, which I believe the British people voted for, we would see a huge boost in our national finances, and that would be a huge benefit for our country.”
