The former Ukip leader lambasted the unelected House of Parliament throughout the LBC programme after Lords sought to amend Theresa May’s Brexit bill to include a parliamentary vote on a final deal with the EU.
The Government is expected to fight the amendment during discussions next week after peers backed the motion 366 to 268 votes.
“I tell you what I think we should have, I’m warming to this thing, let’s have another referendum,” Mr Farage fumed on Tuesday night.
“I’ll tell you what, OK Paddy Ashdown, all the others, let’s have another referendum, let’s have a referendum this year on whether we should continue with this unelected House of Lords. I'd love to get involved in that."

Responding to a listener, who blasted those claiming Lords were making money from the EU, the Brexiteer insisted some had pre-existing loyalties to the bloc.
He said: “There are people in there, former European commissioners who get a pension from the European Union and it’s a conditional pension – they only continue to receive the pension if they continue to promote the European Union.”
Mr Farage also snapped back at a listener who texted in arguing the House of Lords had a right to make an amendment to the bill as it was part of parliamentary sovereignty.
He blasted: “I couldn’t care less about parliamentary sovereignty, I care about the sovereignty of the people, that is why we had a referendum on this.
