It comes amid rumours that some Conservative donors want to help forge an alliance between the Brexit Party and the Conservatives.
The Chairman of the pro-Conservative Midlands Industrial Council, Johnny Leavesley, wrote in The Telegraph that: “The next PM needs to be willing to work with Farage.”
But Farage his dismissed an alliance, telling the Daily Express: “I’ve been approached by a couple of people. But why would I trust anybody in the Conservative Party?
“If they really want to leave on October 31st, they need to get on with it. All I can see at the moment is a rerun of March 29.
“I can understand why they want to buy me off but the lack of trust means it’s not up for grabs.”
It comes as the Brexit Party polls in first place for the next General Election and Farage focused on the party standing in every constituency in the country.
If the next Tory Prime Minister also fails to deliver on Brexit as Theresa May has, we could see an even bigger electoral backlash on the way.
