The Office of National Statistics (ONS) released figures showing nearly 1,000 people have found employment in the UK every day since the Brexit vote in 2016.
Nigel Farage welcomed the figures and used the revelation to mock Remainers warning that leaving the European Union would have dire consequences for British workers.
Speaking on his daily LBC show, Mr Farage said: “Figures out today from the Office of National Statistics show that since the day we voted Brexit nearly two years ago, there have been 1,000 new jobs created in this country every single day.
“A 1,000 new jobs created every single day since we voted Brexit: put that in your pipe and smoke it, Remoaners.”

The ONS revealed that employment reached a record high at the end of April at 32.39million, with 659,000 people finding work since the referendum, and on average 985 per day.
Along with increased employment, the ONS revealed unemployment had fallen by 224,000 to 1.42million.
Mr Farage continued: “I’ve been talking about the Brexit boom: what do I mean by that?
“The local town to me now is producing 20,000 bottles of sparkling wine every year, a new brewery opened up quite recently and you can see the shops beginning to sell British local produce and people really wanting to buy it.
“I genuinely think Brexit could quite good news for those sort of things.”

At least 3.3 million people have also found work since the Conservative Party came into power in 2010.
Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey hailed these figures as a “great British success story”.
Leave Means Leave co-chairman John Longworth also welcomed the findings and stated the UK had succeeded despite the “propaganda of Project Fear”.
Mr Longworth said: “This is in stark contrast to the German-run eurozone where the captive nations like Greece, Spain and Italy have eye-wateringly high unemployment.
