A REMAIN campaign director has blasted Nigel Farage for “refusing to accept he has won” and backing a new referendum, during a Newsnight interview.

Lucy Thomas, a Remain Campaign Deputy Director, accused the Brexit architect of supporting the possibility of a second referendum in order to remain relevant and because he “loves a fight”.

She said: “For me, it was a democratic decision, people have had their say and I sort of want to ask Nigel Farage why can’t you accept you’ve won?

“What is it about this that you don’t accept. For me, I’ve known Nigel Farage for probably about 10 years and he just loves a fight, he loves campaigning.”

Asked by Newsnight host Emily Maitlis whether she thought it was about publicity Ms Thomas agreed it was.

She said: “I think he wants to remain relevant.”

Ukip MEP Diane James revealed even his former party were shocked by the move.

When asked when he was thinking she replied said: “‘What was he smoking?’ I think ought to be the next question.”
