There is more evidence that Nigel Farage could still leave the UK after Brexit, after hints he wanted to break America next.
In a video posted to The Sun newspaper's Twitter feed, Farage read out some of the meanest tweets submitted to the newspaper to show the Brexit Party leader.
In one comment correspondent Mark Rudden said that Farage is "probably the only person in the world who loves the sound of his own voice more than Piers Morgan does".
He continued: "A man who has never been elected as an MP thinking he's running the country..."
To that Farage said he had been "an MEP for 20 years" and "had campaigned up and down the breadth of the country".

"Whether you like me or hate me, I think you could at least credit me, that I have shifted a lot of opinions on this question of Europe."
Twitter user @a_rambling_man said: "Your milkshake brings all the fascists to the yard" to which Farage shrugged.

Another told the Brexit Party leader he "looks like a smug, white, Kermit the frog" before adding "he has frog lips".
Farage responded that it "takes all sorts".
He also refused to rule out that he could leave the UK after Brexit.
Twitter user @whenisbirths said: "I can confidently predict that Nigel Farage will f**k off the instant he is faced with any expectation of responsibility."
Farage did not appear to deny he could leave the UK, but he claimed that he did want to take responsibility for Brexit.
He said: "I tell you what Justin, I want us in the Brexit Party to be part of the government team to get us ready for leaving on the 31st October with no deal. I want responsibility, you're wrong."
In an interview with the Sunday Express last month, he hinted he wanted to make his break in America next.
He told the newspaper: "The States, now that is the big game. Living here is not easy, living in the States is a lot more easy. In America you can live a normal life."
In 2017 Farage said he would "go and live abroad, I'll go and live somewhere else" if Brexit was a disaster.
