4. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit Party:
(Former UK Prime Minister) Tony Blair never accepted the result (of the referendum), and in fact, a House of Commons, that is a remain House of Commons, and a government, that is made up of the Prime Minister and two thirds of a cabinet, that are remainers, have just, simply, refused to accept the democratic result. We're told that we didn't know what we were voting for. How dare they?"
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit Party:
"Now we have the spectre, of (UK Prime Minister) Mrs. (Theresa) May and (opposition leader) Mr. (Jeremy) Corbyn, now trying to negotiate a new form of wording in the Political Declaration that is added to her dreadful treaty. And by the way, that treaty that Mrs. May wants to get signed through the House of Commons, is such a shameful document, it could've only ever been signed by somebody who had been defeated in war. It is a travesty of a document and it must never pass."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit Party:
"Now we face European elections, they are going to happen on 23 May (2019). And can I tell you, after the launch of this party yesterday, the establishment is now panicking."
Pro-Brexit British politician Nigel Farage on Saturday spoke at the first rally of his newly formed Brexit Party, a day after launching a campaign for the possible election to an institution he routinely insults - the contest for UK seats in the European Parliament.
Addressing supporters in Birmingham, the former leader of the UK Independence Party reiterated claims that Britain's Government had failed to respect the result of the 2016 EU referendum.
Britain was supposed to have left the European Union before the European elections, which take place in late May in every EU nation.
But with Britain's Parliament still deadlocked over whether to approve the government's divorce deal with the bloc, EU leaders have postponed the Brexit deadline until Oct. 31.
Prime Minister Theresa May has said taking part in this year's European elections three years after the nation voted to leave the EU would be "unthinkable" and that she still hopes Britain can avoid the bloc's May 23 election.
But with British lawmakers unwilling to endorse the divorce agreement that May forged with the EU, preparations have begun to fill the 73 UK spots in the 751-seat European legislature.
Winning candidates from Britain will only get to serve as long as their country remains in the EU.
Britain's ruling Conservatives and the opposition Labour party are unenthusiastic about running in the European Parliament election, where they are likely to be punished by disgruntled voters.
But pro-Brexit and pro-EU parties are eager to run in a contest seen by many as a way to express their strongly divergent views on the EU.
Farage, who formerly led the UK Independence Party and has sat in the European parliament since 1999, was instrumental in helping the Leave side win Britain's 2016 referendum on EU membership, but stepped down as UKIP leader after the referendum.
