Brexit

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Boris Johnson to lead Britain out of the European Union without a divorce deal in place, threatening to fight his party “in every seat” in the next general election if he failed to do so. “Given where we are, no deal is the best deal,” Farage told more than 500 prospective parliamentary candidates from his newly-formed party, which came first in European elections in May. “If Mr Johnson you insist on the Withdrawal Agreement we will fight you for every single seat,” he said. Farage, a leading force behind the Brexit vote in 2016, warned Johnson against attempting to strike an agreement with Brussels, urging him to pursue a “clean break Brexit”.— AFP
