Nigel Farage to form election alliance with Tories for Brexit


LONDON: A clean exit from the EU could be achieved by Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister and forming an election agreement with the Brexit Party, its leader Nigel Farage has said.

The former UKIP chief said such a pact would require MrJohnson to call a snap election. “If Boris said ‘right, we’re ditching this terrible treaty, it’s the worst deal in history, I made a terrible mistake in voting for it, we’re ditching it’,” Mr Farage said at an event hosted by The Telegraph on Tuesday. “‘We’re giving Europe notice – we’re leaving on the 31st of October on WTO (World Trade Organisation) terms. We’re going to do our utmost to make sure that in terms of terms of aviation, transport, the Port of Dover there is as little disruption as there possibly can be’ – then you might spring them into action and they might offer some sort of tarifffree deal. “And ifBoris did that, and he was prepared to go toHouse ofCommonsto be voted down, to lose amotion of confidence, to go the country on a general election on thatticket andwith the support of people oflike me – he would win a massive, thumping majority.”
