Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party and a main architect of Brexit, gave up his post Monday.
He said at a press conference: "I came into politics from business because I believed that this nation should be self-governing. I have never been, and I have never wanted to be, a career politician."
Farage added: "During the referendum campaign, I said I want my country back. What I'm saying today is I want my life back."
