Reform UK’s membership has hit 65,000 after a surge within the election marketing campaign.

Nigel Farage’s get together has attracted 25,000 new members who’ve paid the £25 charge to hitch since June 8.

The Reform chief, who can be the brand new MP for Clacton, wrote on X: “Reform UK has just reached 65,000 members.

“I’m constructing a mass motion. Come and be part of it!”

The rebranded Brexit Party secured more than four million votes in last Thursday’s General Election.

It was the third most popular party by vote share after Labour and the Tories, taking 14 percent of the vote.

But it won just five seats due to quirks in the first past the post electoral system.

Lee Anderson defended Ashfield, party chairman Richard Tice secured Boston and Skegness and former Southampton FC chairman Rupert Lowe won Great Yarmouth.

James McMurdock became the fifth MP after taking the seat of Basildon South and East Thurrock with a wafer-thin majority of 98 votes following tense recounts.

Speaking in Essex on Saturday, Mr Farage said his aim is to “construct a mass motion for actual change main as much as the subsequent units of elections”.

He said: “We will do what we are able to with 5 in Parliament, what I’ll do for sure is present actual opposition within the nation.

“And my aim and ambition is to build a mass movement for real change, leading up to the next sets of elections.”
