UKIP leader Nigel Farage says in an interview given to on Wednesday morning that he would not leave his seat as a MEP because he has to watch "like a hawk" what happens to the outcome of leave negotiation, in the wake of the Brexit referendum. He says that unless Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which marks the formal launch of the EU exit procedures, is invoked quickly, "there will be a lot of anger". And he dodges questions about his feeling responsible for a recent wave of anti-immigrant, racist outbursts in British society.

Farage says he feels like a "turkey who voted for Christmas" as he sacrificed his job in the referendum.

And on the fueling of racism he says the situation would have been much worse in Britain had the country decided to remain in the EU.
