Nigel Farage is planning to return to politics leading a competitive to UKIP political platform, The Times reported on Sunday.

On the very day, UKIP’s leader Henry Bolton lost a vote of confidence in the party, the British press is suggesting that Farage will not return to save the party. Instead, he will be creating a new one.

Bolton is in disrepute following his (now former) lover, Jo Marney, racist comments on social media. Marney described Prince Harry’s fiancée as a Black American that would “taint” the royal family.

UKIP cannot hold a leader for any considerable length of time. The previous leader, Diane James, resigned after holding the post for 18 days.

Instead, Farage and Aaron Banks – the main funder of UKIP and one of the leaders of the Leave campaign – are planning a new platform. Apparently, the decision was made at a dinner between the two men on January 11.

Farage is trying to establish himself in the US far-right while holding a regular radio show. But, he is also recently divorced and facing economic troubles, according to a recent interview he gave to the Daily Mail.

Soon after the vote to Leave, Banks gave an interview to the Guardian suggesting a new party that would resemble more Corbyn’s momentum. The idea was to create an army of activists that would be focused on grassroots mobilization.
