He urged Theresa May to pursue a “clean Brexit” with total control over immigration and no payments to the European Union budget, in a potential attempt to draw dividing lines with ministers who have suggested the UK could keep paying Brussels for single market access.
In his New Year message, Mr Nuttall said: “It’s been a year when the ordinary people, the little people have kicked back against the liberal Establishment that’s ruled over their lives for so many years.
If you think 2016 has been a year of upheaval, 2017 could be even bigger
“The Rust Belt in the United States voted en masse for Donald Trump.
“If you think 2016 has been a year of upheaval, 2017 could be even bigger.”
The Ukip leader urged the Government to use the “momentous” referendum result to boost global trade links and deliver a “real Brexit”.”
Ukip leader Paul Nuttall urged Theresa May to deliver a “real Brexit” in his New Year message
He said: “We will only do that if we get real Brexit, clean Brexit, the kind of Brexit that m party Ukip will campaign on.
A Brexit whereby we control our own borders, a Brexit whereby we make the legislation at Westminster.
“It’s a Brexit, whereby we don’t pay a membership fee into the EU and only Ukip is committed to clean Brexit.
Mr Nuttall warned next year could bring more political upheaval as he set out Ukip’s plans for 2017
“We will campaign for fair but firm immigration controls, we will campaign to slash the foreign aid budget and ensure that British taxpayers money is spent here in our country.
“We will campaign to ensure that the NHS is a national health service and not an international health service. We will become the party of law and order, the party of zero tolerance.

Local and mayoral election are set to take place across the country in May next year.
Ukip has pledged to challenge Labour in its heartlands and will be trying to put the party’s divisions behind it and build on previous local election successes.
May 2017 will see full elections for 34 English councils, including 27 county councils, and for all 32 Scottish councils and all 22 Welsh councils, as well as polls in England for directly-elected mayors in seven devolved new super-regions plus two existing councils.
In Wales, Labour will be seeking to defend and if possible build upon the significant gains in council seats and control that it made in the previous Welsh local elections in 2012.
The party faces challenges from Plaid Cymru, Tories, Lib Dems and Ukip, which had a breakthrough with seven assemnly members elected in regional PR top-up seats in the Welsh Assembly elections last May.
