FARAGE MISTAKE WAS GETTING TOO CLOSE TO BORIS – BUT TO REDEEM HIMSELF HE COULD SUPPORT CORBYN’S LABOUR BREXIT PLANS AND FORM AN UNLIKELY ALLIANCE- THAT WOULD ALTER THE RESULT – OPPOSING BORIS AND BECOMING A REAL THREAT

Nigel Farage to miss out on seats due to huge campaign mistake, Brexit Party founder warns

NIGEL FARAGE has been warned his lack of “distinction” could prove fatal for Brexit Party candidates and cost him potential seats at the general election.

Election: Brexit Party founder criticises party’s campaign strategy 

 

 announced last month he had renounced to field 317  candidates in a bid to help Boris Johnson keep a hold of the seats Conservatives won in the 2017 election this coming December. Mr Farage said his remaining prospective MPs will target northern constituencies in the  heartland to erode majorities for Opposition MPs to strengthen pro-Brexit positions in Parliament. But Brexit Party founder Catherine Blaiklock told LBC prospects for Mr Farage and his candidates are bleak: “I don’t think they’ll win any seats at all.

“They haven’t distinguished themselves. They want to go into northern seats but I don’t think the people in Bradford are that worried about free trade and fishing – they are more worried about what’s going on in their communities.

“They won’t talk about economics in a sensible way, in my opinion, either. They haven’t distinguished themselves and they are going for a very hard-line Brexit when you’re possibly going to end up with no Brexit without any realism.

 

“I’m looking at very marginal seats, talking to somebody who is in Chester, where there’s 200 votes and it’s won. Each time it swings and they can really mess things up there.”

Ms Blaiklock continued: “You are not hearing any policy that is different from the Conservatives.

“The other problem with this northern, sort of, Labour-voting idea is that the polls don’t stack up. They don’t show that.”

Following the announcement of his change of plan, Nigel Farage claimed the Conservative Party had offered him and other seven key figures within the Brexit Party peerages in exchange for standing candidates in key seats.

Former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe also claimed to have received a call for Number 10 offering her a seat in the Brexit negotiating team for her to withdrawal from the Plymouth Devenport constituency.

But Conservative Security Minister Brandon Lewis denied that any such deals were offered, saying: “We are not offering deals, we are not doing deals.”

In an interview with The Parliament Magazine in June, the Brexit Party leader claimed the party has a “legitimate” right to be included in any further talks between the UK and EU. 

Mr Farage said his fledgling party should be involved with the Brexit process after its stunning win in the European Parliament elections in May.

UK police have since reported they have launched an investigation on allegations of electoral fraud following accusations that the Tory party offered Brexit party members seats in the House of Lords if they stood down.
