Farage Calls For Brexit National Holiday

The former Leader of Reform UK and the Brexit Party has called for 23rd June to become a national holiday.

Nigel Farage, who was the primary orchestrator behind the Brexit referendum success, has called for 23rd June to become a national holiday.

23rd June was the day on which the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016. The Leave side won the referendum, with 51.9% of the vote. The UK officially left the EU last year on 31st December, following lengthy negations on a future partnership with the European Union.

Mr Farage advocated making the23rd June a national holiday because it was the day that the people “rejected the establishment” and “voted for independence”.

He wrote on Twitter:

“5 years ago today the British people rejected the establishment and voted for independence. It should become a national holiday, our Independence Day.”

Richard Tice, the current Leader of the Reform UK party (formerly the Brexit Party, of which Mr Farage is a former leader) also sent out a referendum anniversary message on Twitter.
