He says – We (the Brexit Party) are the challenger to Labour in the Midlands and the North.
There are a huge number of seats where if you vote Conservative, you will get Corbyn.
TAP – That’s pretty clear speaking. Give the Brexit Party a clear run in the Midlands and the North, and let the Conservatives battle for the South.
Or let in Labour through splitting the vote.
The Daily Telegraph claims the Conservatives might offer not to stand candidates against Farage’s Brexit Party in dozens of seats, in a bid to ensure the UK leaves the European Union by the end of October.
So how would this work?
“Under the idea, the Brexit Party could agree not to stand against Tory Brexiteer candidates, while the Tories would not fight Metropolitan Labour seats in the north of England where the Brexit Party is strong,” reports the Telegraph.
The newspaper says there is growing speculation that Theresa May’s replacement will call a snap election in a bid to bring in new MPs who want to leave the EU by the 31 October deadline.
However, the latest YouGov poll for The Sunday Times puts Farage’s party in first place on 24%, three points ahead of the Tories and Labour should an election be called.
