After heading up the major leave campaign that aimed to ‘get our country back’ during the recent EU referendum – UKIP leader Nigel Farage has stepped down (again).

He says that this time it’s for good, though.

Speaking at a conference this morning, Nigel said: "I have decided to stand aside as leader of UKIP.

"The victory for the Leave side in the referendum means that my political ambition has been achieved. I came into this business because I wanted us to have a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.

“UKIP is in a good position and will continue, with my full support, to attract a significant vote. Whilst we will now leave the European Union, the terms of our withdrawal are unclear.

"If there is too much backsliding by the Government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters then UKIP’s best days may yet to come.

“I now feel that I’ve done my bit, that I couldn’t possibly achieve more. I won’t be changing my mind again, I assure you."

Nigel had been leader of the UK Indepence Party since 2006.

Many of you had A LOT of opinion Nigel decision, especially as it comes just two weeks after Britons voted to leave the European Union - something he campaigned for.

One lady who was pretty annoyed by the news was singer Charlotte Church, who took to Twitter to voice her opinions: "I want me f--king European Union back you piece of s--t!!!!!"

Charlotte, who has a well-documented passion for politics, had voiced her opinions on why we should have voted ‘remain’.

Her tweet received a barrage of abuse from passionate leave voters, however.

One said: "I would say you're a champaign [sic] Socialist, Ms Church. You certainly make a prat of yourself."
