Nigel Farage is quitting elected politics and selling personalised videos

After a three-decade-long career in politics, during which he frequently criticised ‘career politicians’ and ‘the elite’, privately educated former commodities broker, Nigel Farage has announced he’s stepping back from elected political life.
