Boris Johnson rejects Trump’s call for Farage alliance telling ITV News his Brexit deal is ‚ready to go‘

Speaking to ITV News Political Editor Robert Peston, the prime minister said his party was in the best position to deliver Brexit and insisted that a vote elsewhere ran „the risk of putting Jeremy Corbyn“ in No.10.

Mr Johnson was speaking after the US President had waded into the election, suggesting that Mr Farage and the prime minister join forces and that the Johnson Brexit deal was flawed.

Drop your dreadful deal, Boris, and in the national interest let’s get Brexit done properly

The Brexit Party is ready for the general election. As the European election made clear, we have hundreds of high quality candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds who are united in their desire to secure a proper break from Brussels and who share a lack of trust in the political class.

We will use the substantial funds which our donors and supporters have helped us raise to fight every seat. If we are the only party willing to stand up for a proper Brexit, so be it.

Brexit Party Take Over Hartlepool Council

The defecting 10 met with the Brexit Party at Nigel Farage’s rally in Sedgefield two days ago, where they informed Richard Tice of their decision. Guido suspects this will be far from the last council taken over by the Brexit Party if we don’t leave on the 31st…

POLITICAL DEATH THREAT: Brexiteers warn Boris Johnson that ditching the backstop is just the start as they push for Theresa May’s deal to be completely scrapped

And ex-Tory party leader Iain Duncan Smith warned there were far more problems with Mrs May’s deal than the backstop – such as the lengthy transition period and the collaboration with the EU on defence.

But in a sign of the hardening attitudes in No.10, a senior ally of the PM said: “We know the ‘Spartans’ are going to accuse us of betrayal at some point.”

Nigel Farage: Donald Trump’s ‚go back‘ remarks to ‚the Squad were genius‘

Mr Farage added: „I thought, ‚Dear, oh dear, oh dear‘. You realise, 48 hours on, it was genius because what’s happened is the Democrats gather round the Squad, which allows him to say, ‚Oh look, the Squad are the centre of the Democratic Party‘.

„He’s remarkably good at what he does.

„He does things his way. But he is a remarkably effective operator.“

Nigel Farage doubts Boris Johnson has the ‘courage’ to get Brexit done by October 31 after landslide win

„Does he have the courage to deliver for the country?“

The Brexit party stormed the European elections in May, which shouldn’t have been held as Britain was meant to be out of the EU by then.

Voters turned on Labour and the Tories as they failed to deliver on the 2016 referendum result.

Tory Party members would ditch Nigel Farage if Boris Johnson can deliver Brexit by October 31, says poll

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party vote would collapse and switch back to the Tories if Boris Johnson succeeded in taking the UK out of the EU by October 31, a poll of Tory party members shows.

The vast majority of Conservative switchers to the Brexit Party would come back to the Tories in a subsequent general election, leaving Mr Farage with a tiny rump, according to the survey by pollsters Orb International for the Telegraph.

Why the Labour party deserves to be destroyed

Already Labour are below 20 per cent in some general election polls and it is hard to see how they will survive a four-way squeeze in any snap election.

The only thing that might avoid this doomsday scenario is if the Tories manage to take the UK out of the EU by 31st October. Given that the dreadful withdrawal agreement is now dead in the water, that means, somewhat ironically, only a ‘no deal’ Brexit can save Labour.

Ann Widdecombe: ‚Oppressed people turning on the oppressors‘

Ann Widdecombe has told the European Parliament there is a „long history“ of „slaves against their owners“ and revolt against the colonies which, she says, mirrors Brexit.

„We are going and we are glad to be going,“ she said.

‚EU won’t change one dot or comma‘: Nigel Farage declares it is ‚absolute rubbish‘ to suggest new Tory PM could renegotiate May’s Brexit deal as he blasts Jeremy Hunt’s No Deal u-turn

On Fox News last night, Mr Farage vowed: ‚If we do not leave the European Union on October 31, I will lead the Brexit Party after that into the next general election and we will sweep away parties that have dominated British politics for over 100 years.‘

The Brexit Party’s stunning victory is just the beginning. Prepare for a revolution in British politics

It took the Labour Party 45 years to win the popular vote in a national election. The Brexit Party has achieved it within 45 days, despite the major parties massively outspending us.

The Remainers want to spin the results to claim they “really” won. Few people will be fooled by these democracy deniers. The clear message of the European elections is that the main political parties have failed to deliver the Brexit that 17.4m voted for three years ago.

If May paves way for 2nd referendum the Brexit Party goes over 40%.

Tories must go with Boris Johnson if they want to survive or they’ll end up as dead as a dodo

Love him or loathe him — and the overwhelming majority of grassroots Tories adore him — Boris is their only possible champion.

Nobody else, whatever their merits, is even recognisable to the voting public.

They need to act fast. Nigel Farage yesterday predicted we are all in for a shock as his party mops up seats in the EU Parliament.

Brexit Party: why the shit isn’t sticking

One of the most beautiful things in British public life right now is the disparity – the colossal disparity – between the media smears about the Brexit Party and the continued success of the Brexit Party. It’s wonderful to behold.

I am challenging @JeremyCorbyn to a European election debate. Labour voters are very confused about what his party stands for on Brexit. Let’s find out.

Don’t build ‚coalition against the people‘, Nigel Farage warns Theresa May

The Leave campaigner said his burgeoning Brexit Party would field a full slate of candidates against Tory and Labour MPs in a general election and “break the two party system” if Mrs May and Mr Corbyn made a pact to keep the UK tied to EU rules.

Why as a lifelong leftie I’ve joined Team Nigel: CLAIRE FOX explains her reasons for standing as a European election candidate in The Brexit Party

As a left-wing campaigner for 35 years, I’ve been arrested on picket lines, led anti-imperialist demonstrations and spoken at anti-deportation protests outside police stations. I’ve made speeches at street rallies, in prisons and universities and at pubs.

Yet yesterday, in an unexpected twist of events, I found myself sitting next to Nigel Farage, announcing my intention to stand as a candidate for his Brexit Party in the European elections on May 23.

The @UKLabour message to Brexit voters is “we think you’re stupid, you’ve got this wrong and you should try again”. They are betraying Brexit just as much as the Conservatives are. If you want Brexit to happen, vote for The Brexit Party.

The FR are notoriously unreliable. Farage is close to Le Pen in ideology and I think she could persuade him in forming an alliance at EU parliament level and forget Brexit. I don’t want to give Le Pen allies.

Bad news for Brexiteers: Germany’s AfD and France’s Le Pen back away from calls for EU exit. This might be a trick to get more MEPs but if its not, it means no other countries will follow Brexit. Mr @Nigel_Farage what say you? @LBC

In our first poll on the forthcoming EU Parliament elections last week Nigel Farage’s new outfit stormed into third place with 15% of the vote. This was despite the Brexit Party not having formally launched.

It is time to put the fear of God into MPs

To see how cynical and censorious Britain’s political class has become, look no further than its mad response to Nigel Farage’s comments at the launch of his new Brexit Party. Farage raged at the mess the elite has made of Brexit, promised to start an ‘earthquake’ in UK politics, and said it was time to put ‘the fear of God’ into MPs who have stitched up Brexit. Cue hysteria among the political and media classes.

that it now looks like the UK will have to take part in European Parliament elections in May, with no clear way forward on Brexit, is pretty terrifying. Everyone will protest vote, the far-right will likely make huge gains, and get wall-to-wall media coverage. It’ll be a disaster
