Brexit backlash? UK's Farage eyes EU election and beyond

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage is one of the few lawmakers in Britain enjoying this month's elections to the European parliament.

In fact, he's relishing it.

Farage has made his name as one of Britain's foremost critics of what he describes as an institution at the heart of a failing "euro project".

And he's putting everything into regaining a seat in the assembly.

He hopes his clear message in support of Britain's departure from the European Union will give him a foothold to transform the country's politics.

.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BREXIT PARTY LEADER, NIGEL FARAGE, SAYING: "We're fighting this election on the issue of democracy.

If our vote is not respected, are we a democratic nation?

And in doing that I'm not just appealing to leave voters I'm appealing to some remain voters as well." For mainstream parties it is a frightening comeback for a man who took a step back from politics after Britain voted to leave the EU in 2016.

At the time Farage said he'd done his bit to secure Brexit.

Fast forward three years and Britain has missed its March 29 Brexit deadline.

Add to that positions on how, or even whether, Britain should leave have become more entrenched.

Prime Minister Theresa May has so far failed to negotiate a way through, making it fertile ground for Farage and his newly formed Brexit Party.

They're topping the polls before the May 23 election.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BREXIT PARTY LEADER, NIGEL FARAGE, SAYING: "Many in our establishment - far from respecting the vote - have done everything they can in the last two years to overturn the greatest democratic exercise in the history of our nation and it is a total and utter disgrace." In Britain European elections are normally a low-key contest but this month's vote has become more important, offering a gauge of opinion since Brexit has all but stalled.

Britain's main parties, the governing Conservatives and opposition Labour, have dedicated few resources to campaigning.

Unlike Farage who is mounting an energetic and fast-paced campaign.

And some supporters want him to go further hoping his Brexit Party will make a showing at Britain's next national election.
