EXCLUSIVE: Ukip leader Paul Nuttall hints Farage WILL RETURN and run as an MP in 2020

But on both his own electoral ambitions and that of the former leader, Mr Nutall said: “If there’s a Thanet by-election, Nigel Farage will be our candidate.

“I may well be a candidate at a by-election myself within the next two years.”

Despite receiving just shy of four million votes in the last general election, Ukip only managed to clinch one seat in the House of Commons. 

In comparison, the SNP snagged 1.4million votes and has 56 seats in Westminster – and the new leader is looking to overthrow the outdated electoral system to help reflect the opinions of  British people.
