The Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, has said it is “extremely unlikely” that a future Tory leader will take the UK out of the EU by the end of October.
“The Conservative party are bitterly divided and I consider it to be extremely unlikely that they will pick a leader who is able to take us out on 31 October come what may,” he said during a press conference in central London.
“We might overnight have made their lives a bit easier but I don’t see them being able to deliver and I think the real barrier, the real obstruction to all of this is a two-party system that may well have worked in decades gone by but is no longer fit for purpose.”
Farage took aim at Tory leadership candidates who voted for the prime minister’s Brexit deal. “Which of the leading Tory contenders did not vote for the worst deal in history, Mrs May’s new European treaty? “Why would I trust any of them? Why would I believe any of them?”
He also claimed the Labour party are in “more trouble” than the Conservatives following the European election results.
TAP – prove him wrong, Conservatives. Elect John Redwood as leader. Out we go. Farage will make mincemeat out of the current leadership contenders. Only Redwood can achieve Brexit.
