'The real voice of opposition'
Later he himself Farage backed off from his position and said that what he was talking with a reporter after the accident "a terrible, terrible mistake." He said the newspapers a little information and that the story of his assassination constructed and that he had never said anything like that.
Earlier, in 2010, was a participant in another, this time the crash. In fact, on election day the plane in which he was riding was pulled behind a poster of his party UKIP. The poster is entangled in the propeller aircraft destroyed in the field in Northamptonshire. Pilot was more difficult, while Farage had only minor injuries.
In the beginning of his political life, he was a conservative, joined the newly formed UKIP in 1993 to support the campaign of the British exit from the EU. Conservatives supported since school age, but it is definitely parted company with them when then British Prime Minister John Major '93 signed the Maastricht Treaty, one of the key EU documents. From then until now, Farage worked hard on the negation of not only the agreement, but also the entire membership of his country in the EU. The first and main goal of UKIP and their leader was out of Great Britain from the EU. Farage has promised that the country will "restore control" over the UK borders and migration. Myself is characterized as a "true voice of the opposition." He promised that he would "bring down the establishment."
Political career full of his statement that many characterize as racist. In his voters that did not hurt. He said also that he does not feel comfortable when hearing a foreign language in British trains. He argued that people have a right to be concerned if they move in to the neighborhood Romanians. He was widely criticized when he said that women who work in the City and have children "are worth a lot less" to their employees than men, suggesting to mothers should "sit in the corner" when breastfeeding. Asked whether the land that would lead UKIP no law against discrimination based on race and skin color, said a clear "no."
He wants to reform the British labor market. "I think the situation we have now, in which the employer is not allowed to choose between people born in the UK and one from the Polish, absurd state of affairs. I would say that the law should be changed, and if the employer wants to choose, or you can use the word "discriminate", can choose to hire a man who was born in Britain and that it should be allowed.

Fighter against the establishment
It was first elected to the European Parliament in 1999 and re-elected in 2004 and 2009.
From the very beginning of his political activity was a critic David Cameron, and even this he could not remain bound. Farage is considered to be "nine out of ten" Tories agreed with the views of his party on Europe. When asked whether UKIP at war with the Tories, he replied that it was at war with the whole establishment. 2006, when the elected leader of UKIP's views on the major parties said that "the important issues you can not put rizlu between the three main parties." Citizens are offered "right choice"
After becoming leader of UKIP's going to build a broader platform party from the economic to the social issues and immigration. Under his leadership, UKIP has become the first British party in the modern era that advocated for hard nationalist politics without being labeled as neo-fascist. In the European Parliament elections 2009 UKIP won almost 17 percent of the aid that it has secured 13 of the 72 seats of the United Kingdom. You completed the second in front of the Labour Party. 2010 on the general elections won by only 3 percent of the vote, the other below the threshold and no deputies in parliament.
After the electoral failure Farage has significantly expanded the electoral base, most conservatives who were dissatisfied with Prime Minister David Cameron. Due to the growing pressure from his own Conservative Party and growing support for anti-European parties, Cameron has promised a referendum on Britain leaving the EU by 2017. His promise was made, and after the results is not wanted resigned.
In May 2014, UKIP has won more than 27 percent of the vote in elections to the European Parliament which brought 24 seats in parliament. It is the first time since 1906 that neither Labour nor the Conservatives have not won the elections at the national level. Interestingly, the British for Farage and UKIP as a rule, the highest vote for the European Parliament, a significant decrease of the general elections in the UK.
This is a campaign led by all means. Migrant crisis and terrorist attacks were his arguments with which he won the leaders of the two major parties, David Cameron and Jeremy Corbyn who were in favor of remaining in the Union. As usual, the migration has been his main argument. Earlier he spoke out because of migration "parts of the country have become unrecognizable," and that he "look like a foreign country."

For all his blame migrants
For problems in health care are also to blame him were migrants. "Tuberculosis National Health system costs a lot of money, and many more coming from southern and eastern Europe." He warned that London suffers from "a Romanian crime wave" and accused the migrants and the high unemployment of young people.
He admires Russian President Vladimir Putin, while the German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was "extremely cold". EU accused that he has "blood on their hands" encouraging rebellion in Ukraine, Syria and Libya. He said he does not support Putin's annexation of Crimea, no "if you touch the Russian bear with the stick he will answer." He adds that he admires Putin, but it does not justify politically and asked how many journalists in prison.
Triumphant after Brexita
And after Brexita praised Putin, saying that this tactic was "more state officials manner" during the campaign Brexita than did US President Barack Obama. "Ultimately, Vladimir Putin acting more in the manner of state officials rather than the president Obama during the referendum campaign," said Farage. "Obama came to Britain and I think I behaved disgracefully."
In the race for the US presidency was supported by Trump. "Donald Trump dares to talk about things that others swept under the rug," he said. "My problems in politics are significantly higher than Trumpovih. We literally lose our sovereignty, we have lost our borders, we lose our ability to regulate, "he said.
All these years, no one had taken seriously. Now it is, how it is said Farage MEPs are no longer allowed. She enjoys the attention, but it is certain that his populism continue for some time. Unlike, for example, conservative Boris Johnson, who also advocated for the release of the country from the EU, but now restrained, Farage is triumphant.
After the results Brexita, Farage said that this "independence day". He said that this "victory of real people, the victory of common people, the victory of decent people." He said the fighting "against multinational companies, commercial banks, high politics, lies, corruption and fraud."
