Mr Farage today refused to budge as he said he would not give into what he described as ‘intimidation’.
Moving around the boxing ring with his fists raised in a fighting stance, Mr Farage said his party would contest all remaining non-Tory seats.
He told activists: ‘We are back in the ring again. A lot of people over the last week have tried to land some very heavy blows on me, virtually everybody in establishment politics, many sections of the media.
‘But I tell you what, we are still there, we are still moving.’
Asked if he intended to withdraw his candidates from Labour-held seats, Mr Farage replied: ‘No, that is just an attempt at intimidation that has come from elements of the press.
‘We are going to take on all of the Remainers who are standing in this country.’
He added: ‘We’re going to stand against every single one of them.’
