Speaking on his LBC show, the former Ukip leader claimed Mr Umunna would “need luck” in launching his “change politics project”.
Nigel Farage said: “Chuka and his chums, otherwise known as the Independent Group. Well, a gang of them today, former Labour MPs Chuka Umunna, Gavin Shuker, Ann Coffey and Chris Leslie were joined with former Tory MP Heidi Allen and guess where they were?
“They were at the headquarters of the Electoral Commission. They have decided they want to become a fully fledged political party so they can put themselves on the ballot paper for the next election.
“The next general election is not due until 2022, but, of course, if Brexit was to get delayed and Article 50 gets extended, there may well be elections to the European Parliament on May 23.
