LONDON, Sep 3 (Reuters / EP) –
The leader of the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, said Tuesday that he does not trust British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to remove the United Kingdom from the European Union without prior agreement, while ensuring that he will work to get a electoral agreement with the conservatives in case of electoral call.
“Of course, if Boris Johnson says we are leaving, we are going to have a clear breakup. Then we, the Brexit Party, would put the country first and tell Johnson that we want to help him in any way we can,” Farage said. reference to a possible electoral pact for upcoming elections.
“However, I fear that this is not what the prime minister wants to do and that was very clear in his statement last night on Downing Street. His intention is to reheat the May Withdrawal Agreement,” he said, regarding to the Pact on Brexit signed by the former British Prime Minister, Theresa May, with the European Union in November 2018.
