Nigel Farage has said the Conservative Party will be “annihilated” in a general election if Boris Johnson fails to deliver Brexit on 31 October.
He warned voters should remain skeptical over the prime minister’s ability to deliver a no-deal Brexit, but he did praise Johnson’s performance since he took to Downing Street.
The Brexit Party leader wrote in The Daily Telegraph that Johnson does not intend to leave the EU by the deadline and is seeking to improve the UK’s negotiating position over the withdrawal agreement.
He added, “It must not be forgotten that Johnson voted for it at the third time of asking. If passing this is now his ambition for Brexit, my party will vigorously oppose him.”
Farage also said he will not forma an alliance with the Tories whilst Dominic Cummings is the special advisor to Johnson.
He said, “Lack of trust in the Conservatives is now a problem; many of us will only believe in a clean-break Brexit when we see it.
“Britain’s best chance of achieving independence now comes from the Brexit Party.
“If the UK does not leave on October 31, the Conservatives will be annihilated in any subsequent general election.”
