Nigel Farage’s Bold Prediction: Prime Minister May Will Be Out of Office Within Two Weeks

Following the resignation of U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson amid controversy over Prime Minster Theresa May‘s Brexit strategy, there has been speculation that the Prime Minister could be in serious political trouble.

Count Nigel Farage — a Fox News contributor and leading figure of Britain’s “Leave” movement — among those who think that May’s political downfall may be imminent. Appearing on The Story Monday night, Farage boldly predicted a swift exit for May.

“I personally believe that the prime minister will be gone within the next fortnight,” Farage said. “And then we have a chance to get a prime minister, a leader of the conservative party, that holds faith with 17.4 million voters who voted ‘leave’ in what was the greatest democratic exercise in the history of my island.”

Farage told host Martha MacCallum that he believes either Johnson or Jacob Rees-Mogg will take over for May.
