Farage leaves on a high

A third UK party is now leaderless, but this one in a good way, reports Stuff:

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage has resigned as head of the UK Independence Party (Ukip), saying he had realised his ambition of Britain voting to leave the European Union.

Farage said on Monday he had “done my bit” following the referendum.

“What I said during the referendum campaign is I want my country back. What I’m saying today is I want my life back,” he said.

Farage said the victory for the Leave side meant his political ambition was achieved. “I came into this struggle from business because I wanted us to be a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.

Very smart to get out while on top. It can only be down hill from here, especially as UKIP no longer has much of a rationale to keep going.
