What is Nigel Farage’s Net Worth?
Nigel Farage is a British past politician and broadcaster who has a net worth of $4 million. In April 1964, Nigel Farage was born in Downe, Kent, England.
Prior to 1993, he belonged to the Conservative party, and since then, he has been a member of the UK Independence party.
After completing his studies at Dulwich College, Farage was elected to represent South East England in the European Parliament in 1999.
Guy Justus Oscar Farage and Barbara (née Stevens) gave birth to Farage in Farnborough, Kent, England. He worked in the City of London as a stockbroker like his father. According to a BBC Radio 4 profile from 2012, Guy Farage was an alcoholic who left the house while his son Nigel was just five years old.
Farage attended the fee-paying independent Dulwich College in south London from 1975 to 1982 for his education. Since Enoch Powell and Keith Joseph visited Farage’s school while he was a student, he has been actively involved in the Conservative Party.
In a later interview, Farage said that some professors disliked him because they knew he was an admirer of Enoch Powell and that any claims to the contrary are completely false.
Following graduation from college in 1982, Farage found work in the City of London selling commodities at the London Metal Exchange. Before moving on to Crédit Lyonnais Rouse in 1986, he initially joined the American commodities division of brokerage house Drexel Burnham Lambert.
1994 saw him join Refco, while 2003 saw him join Natixis Metals. Farage was re-elected to the European Parliament in 2004, 2009, and 2014 after first being elected in 1999. His 1999 European election campaign was the subject of a four-month-long BBC documentary that was never shown.
The movie was requested by Farage, who was then in charge of the UKIP’s South East office, and copies were made by pals and sold for $5 each through the party’s magazine. In the European Parliament, he was allegedly always given the number 007 office.
On November 18, 2004, Farage made an announcement in the European Parliament that Jacques Barrot, the then-designated French Commissioner, had been disqualified from holding elective office in France for two years after being found guilty in 2000 of stealing $2 million from government funds and using it to fund his party instead.
Farage asked the European Commission in the first few months of 2005 to provide the locations of each Commissioner’s vacations. According to the Commission, the Commissioners had a right to privacy, so it declined to release the information that was requested.
Following Herman Van Rompuy’s speech to the European Parliament on February 24, 2010, Farage addressed the first long-term President of the European Council and former Prime Minister of Belgium, claiming that he had the “charisma of a damp rag” and the appearance of “a low-grade bank clerk.”
This was met with rebukes from other MEPs. On February 14, 2008, Charles, Prince of Wales, accepted an invitation to address the European Parliament. In his remarks, he urged EU leadership in the fight against climate change.
In a speech to the Foreign Press Association in May 2009, Farage claimed to have received $2 million in taxpayer funds for staff, travel, and other expenditures during his 10 years as a member of the European Parliament.
This information was revealed by The Observer. Farage correctly predicted that UKIP will gain a Scottish seat in the European Parliament elections on a second trip to Edinburgh in May 2014. He was booed and heckled by 200 protesters.
From 2006 to 2009 and again from 2010 to 2016, Farage presided as the head of the UK Independence Party. He supported the United Kingdom’s decision to vote to exit the European Union.
Farage resides “around the corner from his mother” in Single Street, a hamlet in the London Borough of Bromley. His marriages total two. Samuel and Thomas were born in 1989 and 1990, respectively. He wed Irish nurse Gráinne Hayes in 1988. In 1997, the pair got divorced.
He wed German national, Kirsten Mehr, in 1999; the two have two kids together. The kids speak “excellent German,” according to Farage’s claim from April 2018 that they hold both British and German passports. As a result of their relationship with Farage, Farage has spoken about how they have endured teasing.
He has made reference to his German wife in reaction to accusations that he is “anti-Europe,” even though he claims to be only anti-EU. Farage hired his wife Kirsten to serve as his parliamentary secretary, claiming that “nobody else could do the job” in April 2014.
The Press Association was informed by his wife in February 2017 that they were leading “different lives” and that Farage had “moved out of the family home a while ago.”
