Nigel Farage - he who conceded, un-conceded, re-conceded and then re-un-conceded the referendum on the European Union - was clearly not always confident that the nation would choose to Brexit.
Just look at what he told the Mirror back in May about what would happen in the event of a 52-48 win for the Remain campaign.
In a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way. If the remain campaign win two-thirds to one-third that ends it
Nigel Farage, we have unfinished business...
