Brexit Party's Farage dismisses calls to stand down in Labour seats

LONDON (Reuters) - Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage on Thursday dismissed demands to stand down candidates fighting the Labour Party, saying his main aim was to win seats in parliament to hold Prime Minister Boris Johnson to account over Brexit.

 

In the most significant move of the election to date, Farage on Monday agreed to stand down 317 candidates in Conservative seats, a step that could pave the way for a majority in parliament for Johnson’s Brexit deal.

 

But Farage has resisted intense pressure to stand down more. He has until 1600 GMT on Thursday to withdraw more candidates.

 

“The Conservatives want a Conservative majority in parliament, not a Brexit majority in parliament,” Farage said. “We now need to get people in parliament to make sure we hold the Conservatives to account.”

 

“There were very clearly seats in which we are the lead challenger and there are other seats in which they are the lead challenger to Labour and we could have done a deal on that basis, but the priority for the Conservative Party - they do not want the Brexit Party to get seats in parliament.”

 

When asked about criticism from his former ally, Arron Banks, Farage said Banks had given up on Brexit and had “Brexhaustion”.

 

“He has given it up. Arron Banks has never given a penny to the Brexit Party, let’s be clear about that, he’s not supported the Brexit Party,” Farage said, adding Banks had now come in behind the deal crafted by former Prime Minister Theresa May.

 

“He, I think, has just had enough of Brexit, it’s Brexhaustion and he was happy for some reason to go along with Mrs May’s deal and Boris’ deal,” Farage said.

 

Banks told Reuters on Tuesday that Farage should step away.

 

“Nigel reminds me of a gambler at a casino that’s been winning all night and it’s time to take the chips off the table and step away,” Banks said. “What we are offering the geezer, as you might say, is Brexit.”

I do hope this is the end of him. I know some of you will hound me for that but the man is simply a self serving liar, he is snake oil through and through,  though gifted with an incredible ability to handle interviewers and push his narrative, I concede.

 

I am shocked at how many times he has shot himself in the foot since the election was touted. But he is not alone, Swinson is as bad as him, Corbyn is trying to win an election based on old fashioned spin and silly improbable catch phrases. And as for Mop Head, a stupid habitual liar trying hard to follow what his puppeteers tell him should be but he just keeps reverting back to character. And Sturgeon and SNP make my ears bleed I swear. 

It time for a mass vote for the Monster Raving Loony Party. God bless Screaming Lord Sutch and all who sail in him. Our saviors?

This has been superseded by the overnight revelation made by Farage, Doris Karloff, and a BP panelist on BBC QT (3 separate claims) that the tories (inc No 10) had contacted & coerced multiple BP candidates to stand down, offering peerages and other inducements as they go.

 

Richard Tice/The BP have contacted all candidates & will compile a dossier of supporting evidence shortly.

 

HTH

 

I can claim the moon is made of green cheese ,but where is his proof?

According to N Farage he was already aware the Conservatives operated in this manner

N Farage has previously stated that he was offered peerage to stand candidates down but still chose to support the Conservatives

At least there are a few laughs to be had in the grim humour as a once great nation falls into the dustbin of history. Have some sympathy for the casualties that fought in the Great Brexit War , for they shall grow old. Buddy can you spare a Euro for an ex-MEP , no Trump retirement pension tours for him. 🤣

 

He should have a word with Tommee about crowdfunding. Here's a tip Stephen, when you come across bad skirting boards...rip them out and replace, because it's not worth rubbing them down and knackering your knuckles on gripper rod.

Funny how he stepped down from conservative held seats after being offered a peerage a couple of days before isn't it?
