Nagel was one of the creators of the radio-program called In de Rooie Haan. He also wrote his Tien over Rood which served as a political manifesto of the Nieuw Links within the Dutch Labour Party.

Preoccupied with the problem of the widening gap between politics and people, he founded in 1993 a local party called Leefbaar Hilversum. In 2001 he established Leefbaar Nederland where he worked with Henk Westbroek, Willem van Kooten, Ton Luiting, Broos Schnetz and Pim Fortuyn. He has also been the party chairman of Leefbaar Nederland. In 2005 there followed the Party for Justice, Action and Progress (in Dutch: Partij voor Rechtvaardigheid, Daadkracht en Vooruitgang (PRDV)) which he founded together with the former police spokesman Klaas Wilting, entrepreneur Peter Schouten and the party’s first lijsttrekker reporter Peter R. de Vries. His autobiography Boven het maaiveld was published in 2001. Nagel participated in the Provincial States elections of 2 March 2011 as a founding member of 50PLUS.
