Brexit: UKIP co-founder Farage re-enters front line politics

Brexit supporters march to Parliament to send message

AP report: EU offers to postpone Brexit until Oct. 31

"I know which one I'd rather have representing us now".

Khan has demanded on a number of occasions a so-called "People's Vote" on any withdrawal treaty agreed in the House of Commons, raising the issue again in Thursday's LBC interview.

European Council President Donald Tusk, Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel look at a tablet ahead of a European Council meeting on Brexit at the Europa Building at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. British Prime Minister Theresa May had originally asked for a delay until June 30, but European leaders voiced doubts that British lawmakers would ratify a Brexit deal within three months.

He said: "UKIP did struggle to get enough good people into it but unfortunately what it's chosen to do is allow the far right to join it and take it over and I'm afraid the brand is now tarnished".

The United Kingdom was supposed to leave the European Union by March 29, but UK Prime Minister Theresa May agreed Thursday to yet another delay, this time until October 31. May's plan to transform the relationship is excessive, there are others who have condemned it as tantamount to a betrayal, relegating Britain to "vassal" status to the EU, particularly because of the backstop arrangements for Ireland that would put the United Kingdom into a customs union with the EU that couldn't be ended unilaterally were future talks to break down.

The UK was granted its first extension in late March, giving the country until April 12.

However she acknowledged that reaching agreement in talks with Labour "will not be easy" as it would require compromise on both sides, but said that it was in the "national interest" that they should try. Winning candidates from Britain will only get to serve as long as their country remains in the EU.

"The government will have to compromise", he said, warning that any agreement would have to be entrenched because Labour has no idea who will replace May. In the end Britain's suggested date was brushed aside as European Union leaders - following an epic five-hour meeting - opted for October 31, with Britain able to leave earlier if a deal is reached.

He noted: "Just to be clear about this - we spent £4bn so far on preparing for Brexit, but that is not just for a no-deal Brexit - much of that money would need to be spent anyway, putting in place systems to replace European Union systems that we've been using up to now".

Farage held the first campaign rally of his newly formed Brexit Party, calling delays to Britain's departure from the European Union "a willful betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of this nation".

If May fails to win over lawmakers on the treaty or fails to hold an election, Britain will leave with no deal on June 1. The Confederation of British Industry said it meant an "imminent economic crisis" had been averted for now.
