Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party secured 29 MEPs after last week’s European elections, becoming the joint largest single party in Brussels.
The Brexit Party wasn’t the only Eurosceptic party to secure a victory, with Mr Salvini and Ms Le Pen’s parties also coming out on top in their respective countries.
British media now report that Nigel Farage walked out of talks to form a “supergroup” of Eurosceptics in the European Parliament, having been involved in discussions to join forces with France’s Marine Le Pen and Italy’s Matteo Salvini.
Mr Farage told Mr Salvini and Ms Le Pen their Eurosceptic group would need his “star quality and recognisable face for the group to secure success”, according to British media.
But the Italian and French politicians were said to be put off by his demands which included transferring his staff on their current pay.
MEP Jonathan Bullock, member of the Brexit Party, told media that the Brexit Party is still negotiating with other parties on possible alliances.
