Mr Farage said the MPs ought not to have spent three years debating without results. The southeast England MEP confirmed the party had 625 confirmed candidates, 25 short of every constituency as the party announced it was ready for a general election. Mr Farage declared: “All that screaming and shouting about why is Parliament going to be closed down over the party conference season.
“Well, the answer is that it has been for the last 80 years.”
Mr Farage then asked: “And if they were really worried after over three years of debating Brexit, if they were really worried about it, they could’ve all cancelled their holidays in Tuscany during August, couldn’t they?”
Parliament is in recess every year for the party conference season.
