Despite calls from prominent leaders for people to come together in 2020, Nigel Farage has used his New Year's message to claim he had 'crushed Remoaners'.
In a joint message with Richard Tice, the Brexit Party chairman, he took credit for Boris Johnson's majority in the general election.
He also claimed Johnson never would have been in Downing Street without him.
He wrote: "The Remoaners are crushed and most of the Brexit blockers in parliament are now gone.
"Remember this is thanks to The Brexit Party. Without us, Boris would not have become PM."
