BREXIT campaigner Nigel Farage is considering a shock bid to run for mayor of London and oust Labour’s Sadiq Khan from power.

The former Ukip leader, who lives in Bromley, south-east London, last night said he was thinking about running in the 2020 mayoral election.

Outspoken Brexiteer Mr Farage said such a move would be an opportunity to “make arguments” on a high-profile platform.

He believes he has enough support in the capital to beat whichever candidate the Conservatives put forward.

This would throw up the prospect of a head-to-head battle between Mr Farage and Labour’s Mr Khan, a staunch Remainer.

Nigel Farage is currently a member of the European Parliament but will lose his seat when Britain leaves the EU next March.

He told the Financial Times: “I have been encouraged to stand by a group of people, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to.

“I haven’t said no to it, I’m thinking about it.

“The Tory party are very actively aware that if I did stand, they would probably come third, and they are afraid of that.”

Around 1.3 million Londoners voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum, while 2.3 million backed Remain.

Next month the Conservatives will pick their candidate to stand against Mr Khan in the 2020 election.

The Tory hopefuls are relatively unknown: London Assembly members Shaun Bailey and Andrew Boff, as well as Ealing councillor Joy Morrissey.

A senior Tory official said Downing Street was braced for electoral “embarrassment” if Mr Farage enters the race.
