Brexit Party's Farage Eyes Conservative Pact for a 'Clean Break' Brexit

Share

Corbyn has previously said that Labour is prioritising a general election and would make the commitment to a referendum with leave and remain options in its manifesto.

Mr Farage has offered a "non-aggression pact" between his party and the Conservatives, on the condition that Mr Johnson sign up for "a clean-break Brexit" - in other words, no deal.

DUP leader Arlene Foster and her deputy Nigel Dodds, who leads the party in Westminster, spent more than an hour inside 10 Downing Street and insisted they had enjoyed a "very good" meeting.

A ComRes poll recently conducted for the Daily Telegraph gave the Conservatives the support of 30% of respondents, with Labour on 29%, the Liberal Democrats on 17% and the Brexit Party on 13%.

"But the only way to break the Brexit deadlock once and for all is a public vote in a referendum". In return, he would let pro-Brexit Conservatives run unopposed, boosting their chances of being elected.

After parliament ordered Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week to seek a Brexit delay beyond October 31 unless he strikes a deal to smooth the transition, Brexit is up in the air with options ranging from a turbulent no-deal exit to a referendum that could reverse the entire endeavour.

"The next Labour government will bring about the biggest extension of rights for workers that our country has ever seen".

Mr Farage claimed he wanted to "fight a general election" and that he wanted to fight it alongside the Tories. People voted remain because they wanted to remain in the European Union and felt it was their best option.

Yesterday, Jeremy Corbyn met union leaders to seek a consensus that Labour continue backing a referendum giving the public the final say on Brexit when it is clear what that would involve.

Former Prime Minister John Major cast Cummings as an overmighty "political anarchist" who should be sacked as Johnson's de-facto chief of staff before he poisoned British politics beyond fix.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Monday that the United Kingdom was in risky territory as voters were concluding that parliament was hindering Brexit. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Johnson's push for an early election was thrown out before parliament was suspended for five weeks.

But 46% agreed they are "fearful" of the consequences of a no-deal Brexit while 33% disagreed and 21% answered "don't know".

On Thursday the Conservative party suffered another hit, after Johnson´s brother Jo Johnson, resigned his position as a minister and member of the Conservative Party. 'That's why Parliament is in recess now because you always have a recess before a Queen's Speech.

Mr Farage claimed that Dominic Cummings" thought of the Brexit Party became as soon as "petty'.

The Government described the scope of the information requested as "disproportionate and unprecedented", adding in a statement after the vote: "We will consider the implications of this vote and respond in due course".
