While last week's report that Nigel Farage is considering moving to the US may have been a prank, overnight the UKIP leader shared some more somber news with The Daily Express, whom he told that he fears for his life and cannot go out in London without his security detail.
“I’ve got no life — I can’t do anything, I can’t go anywhere,” he said in an interview with British tabloid The Daily Express. Farage, who retired after the successful Brexit vote in June, an effort he spearheaded, said he has had death threats and last week was confronted with a glass on Thursday night.
Farage, father of four, whose family was chased out of a pub and had their car attacked by protesters last year, said the “aggro” had become worse since Trump’s victory. He added: “It might diminish, it might not. The America dimension changed everything. It’s been so full-on, unbelievable really.”
