A by-election took place in the Parliamentary constituency of Peterborough on 6 June It was won by Lisa Forbes of the Labour Party. Mike Greene of the Brexit Party took second place. The seat was vacant following the removal of the former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya by means of a recall petition triggered by her conviction for perverting the course of justice.
Farage blames his loss on his party's lack of data about where the key voters are - something which Labour had been working on for months.
He says: "By-elections are won or lost on data - parties build up data, knowing who their voters or their potential voters are over a long period of time.
Mr Farage suggests his Brexit Party might not publish a policy manifesto but instead a "policy platform".
He says: "If you look at the manifestos that have been delivered by the two so-called main parties in the last series of elections none of the pledges have ever been delivered.
Mr Farage suggests Labour would produce a "policy platform" or a "contract with the people" offering ideas for political reform and regional economic policies.
Asked if he would do an electoral pact with the Conservatives he says: "They may have to come and do a deal with us - who is to say.
All I know is I don't believe a word they say, I don't trust them. He adds: "I am not offering anyone a deal - we are an eight week old party, we are pushing on.
What will begin to happen is that Conservatives who want to leave will start to vote tactically. A big vote for delivering brexit in Peterborough but no pro early brexit MP.
Not a good result. We need more votes in parliament for just leaving as most Conservative and Brexit voters want to do.
The chairman of the Peterborough Conservative Association Wayne Fitzgerald said it was now essential the party committed to taking Britain out of the EU, even if it meant no deal.
Her parting gift is another dreadful election result, one that unfortunately reflects her three year tenure as Prime Minister. She lost 33 Conservative MPs their seats in by calling a snap election and blowing a 20 point poll lead in one of the worst Conservative Party campaigns in its history.
She then promised to clear up the mess she created and Peterborough was at least one final opportunity to make a small measure of amends.
Unfortunately she could not do so for its dedicated former MP, Stewart Jackson, who decided he would not contest the seat again, and as for Paul Bristow, the dedicated local candidate, she was nowhere to be seen in Peterborough.
W hat can we learn from this by-election and will it have any impact on who is likely to replace Theresa May? Read the full story. S hadow chancellor John McDonnell said the Peterborough vote had "punctured the Brexit Party's balloon" after Mr Farage departed before the result was announced.
He tweeted: "A tough campaign won by a superb local candidate and hard campaigning work on the ground. Great to send Farage sneaking out by the back door, puncturing the Brexit Party's balloon.
Well done Lisa Forbes. L eave. EU said the result showed the Tories must work with Mr Farage or face defeat in a general election. T he Brexit Party said "no seat is safe" after their performance in Peterborough.
A remarkable result for our 8 week old party. If we can come so close in our st target seat, no seat is safe.
Thanks to the people of Peterborough who voted for us - we promise you that we're here to stay! S peaking to reporters after the result, Mike Greene said he would contest the seat again in the next general election.
There will be a general election soon. I'm sure the Government will let people down by October. Just see what happens when we come back next time.
Asked if the result was a setback for the party and its primary aim of delivering Brexit, Mr Green added:"If you look at the votes then Leave voters far outweighed Labour.
So their vote held up more than most people expected it to. Suddenly, the Labour activists at the Kingsgate Conference Centre became confident of victory and were predicting a win.
Before long they were jubilant. Mr Farage and his cronies, however, were strangely - and unusually for them - subdued and privately admitting they were going to come second.
None more so than the Brexit Party leader himself, normally ebullient, loud, raucous and brash Mr Farage had spent the evening dining at the George Hotel at Stamford, one of the finest dining establishments on the A1, according to locals here.
The restaurant serves rare roast beef carved at the table and - no doubt - a fine claret to Mr Farage's liking.
But candidates and their supporters are arriving, and among them are the ever colour Monster Raving Loony Party. Before they begin counting votes the tellers will verify them.
After they are done we should have an idea of what the turnout is - which is something all the political parties are desperate to know as it lets them know if they managed to get their voters to the polls.
This is far from conceding defeat - but is an acknowledgement that their campaign might not have been enough to beat a campaign so focussed on just a single issue.
This contest has become about the collapse of Conservatives support and the race between the Brexit Party and Labour. This election was triggered by the ousting of MP Fiona Onasanya, who won the seat for Labour in but was later jailed after lying over a speeding offence.
It left the party facing an uphill battle in the seat, where The Conservatives, who lost this seat by just votes in , have resigned themselves to a distant third.
But the party are keen to downplay expectations that they are going to walk to victory in this seat.
Polls have closed in the by-election here in Peterborough and we are waiting for the first boxes to make their way to the count. The race here is going to be difficult to call - and insiders in all parties are saying it looks closer than they were expecting.

Ms Onasanya was elected as a Labour MP and was suspended from the party after she was sentenced. Both Labour and the Conservatives had campaigned hard ahead of the by-election, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, former prime minister Gordon Brown and Tory big guns Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt all visiting the city in the lead-up.
But Nigel Farage's Brexit Party, which won 29 seats in the European elections, had also campaigned hard in its first tilt at a Westminster seat.
Tory candidate Paul Bristow came in third with 7, votes. Away from the top three, the Liberal Democrats finished in fourth place with 4, votes.
Give us the attention we deserve. Lisa Forbes Labour. A by-election took place in the Parliamentary constituency of Peterborough on 6 June Mike Greene of the Brexit Party took second place.
The seat was vacant following the removal of the former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya by means of a recall petition triggered by her conviction for perverting the course of justice.
Labour candidate Fiona Onasanya was elected to represent Peterborough at the general election , defeating Stewart Jackson , the sitting Conservative MP, by votes.
Onasanya was elected as the Labour MP for Peterborough at the general election and later stated her wish to be the first black female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
A Notice of Intended Prosecution was returned to the police in her name, claiming that a man named Aleks Antipow was the driver. However, it was later discovered that Antipow was in his native Russia at the time.
Her appeal against conviction was rejected on 5 March ,  and later that day, the Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow announced in Parliament that a recall petition would be put into place against her.
In , a recall petition in her constituency was signed by It was triggered after the constituency's MP Fiona Onasanya failed to secure permission to appeal against being found guilty of perverting the course of justice and being sentenced to a term of imprisonment.
Onasanya misled police with regard to a speeding offence in , was convicted in December ,  and in March lost an application for permission to appeal against her conviction and sentence.
Onasanya was an independent politician , having been expelled from the Labour Party following the conviction. The petition opened on 19 March and ran until 5 pm on 1 May The recall petition was successful: 19, signatures were obtained from the 69, electors eligible to sign the petition, or Therefore the seat was vacated and the Peterborough by-election was called to fill the vacancy.
This was the second recall petition since the Recall of MPs Act , and the first successful use of the procedure to remove a sitting MP.
Under the Recall of MPs Act , any MP who receives a prison sentence of a year or less is subject to a recall petition, though the procedure cannot begin until appeals have been unsuccessful.
The court officially informed the Speaker of the House of Commons who, later that day, took the necessary steps to initiate the process which included notifying the petition officer for the constituency.
The petition officer for Peterborough opened the petition on 19 March, with ten designated signing places within the constituency for constituents to sign the petition.
No ongoing tally was reported by the petitions officer, thus it was not known that the required threshold had been reached until the end of the six-week period.
This represented Though she did not stand, Onasanya was legally eligible to be a candidate in the by-election. The Labour Party had withdrawn support for her — the party encouraged voters to sign the petition and, along with several other parties, pre-selected a by-election candidate.
In the European Union referendum , At the European Parliament election , held two weeks before the by-election, the Brexit Party was in first position in the council area, receiving The list of 15 nominated candidates was announced on 9 May.
