Nigel Farage makes a u-turn (Source: Getty)

In his autobiography, The Purple Revolution, Nigel Farage said it was curtains for him if he failed to win in Thanet.

"The consequences of me failing to secure a seat for myself in the Commons would be significant for both myself and the party. It is frankly just not credible for me to continue to lead the party without a Westminster seat...was I supposed to brief UKIP policy from the Westminster Arms? No - if I fail to win South Thanet, it is curtains for me. I will have to step down."

He didn't win in Thanet, and he resigned, but he's now back by popular demand (apparently), in what may be the biggest u-turn ever made in politics.

Here are some of the best reactions.
