Four Brexit Party MEPs Resign to Back the Tory Party in Elections

Four Brexit Party MEPs Resign to Back the Tory Party in Elections

But the former party members launched a furious parting shot at Mr Farage, accusing the political group of employing strategy that risks Brexit altogether.

Annunziata Rees-Mogg, Lance Forman, John Longworth and Lucy Harris said only the Tories could be trusted to deliver Brexit.

Four Brexit Party MEPs are set to resign in a move to support Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, just a week before a snap election in the UK.

John Longworth, one of three Brexit Party politicians elected to the European Parliament to represent Yorkshire and the Humber this summer, said the decision was "news to him" and that he hadn't been told by party officials.

Mr Farage raged: "Whilst we are disappointed that four of our MEPs don't seem to understand that we both saved the Conservative party from large scale losses to the Liberal Democrats in the south and south-west of England, but we are also hammering the Labour Leave vote in its traditional heartlands, making it much easier for the Conservatives to win many of those seats.

The Conservatives are the only option for Brexit supporters and democrats alike", Annunziata Rees-Mogg said in a statement.

"We have completely independent views from each other and I am only concerned about Brexit".

Mr Farage ended his address by telling party supporters: "I am more optimistic about Brexit and what it means and leaving this ghastly club based in Brussels run by these bureaucrats".

He added: "They joined the coalition that I put together".

They have all chosen to back the Prime Minister's push to "get Brexit done".

During the 30-minute interview with Andrew Neil, Mr Farage was asked about his election strategy, Islamophobic remarks made by two of his candidates and whether the NHS should be "on the table" in any post-Brexit trade talks with the US. "We are receiving a great reception from disenchanted Labour voters and believe we have a good chance of winning in many seats".

If they win a majority, the Conservatives plan to set out their legislative program on December 19 and then before Christmas bring back the legislation required to ratify Johnson's European Union exit agreement and pass it in time to leave by January 31.

He said: "When I became leader of the party, there were no processes in place to deal with anti-Semitism".
