At a speech in London, Farage, who was elected as an MEP for the party in 1999, said he had never wanted to be a career politician and was standing down. He has had two stints as leader of the Eurosceptic party since 2006, The Independent reported. \u201cI now feel that I\u2019ve done my bit, that I couldn\u2019t possibly achieve more,\u201d the 52-year-old added.
