Nigel Farage said his Brexit Party may contest every seat across England, Scotland and Wales in the General Election as he issued an ultimatum to Boris Johnson.
Mr Farage said he was open to forging a ‘Leave Alliance’ with the Conservative Party – but only if Mr Johnson ditched his deal with the EU.
US President Donald Trump last night urged Mr Farage and Mr Johnson to do a deal and form an “unstoppable force”. He said the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would be “so bad” for the UK.
Analysts believed it unlikely that the Tory leader would accept the proposed alliance on Mr Farage’s terms because the Brexit deal is likely to be a central part of the Conservative Party manifesto.
Without a “Brexit alliance” Mr Farage hinted that 500 candidates would battle against all parties in a move that increases the likelihood of a hung parliament.
