Boris Johnson and his fellow Tories won't come out on top. Farage has long maintained that if the UK remains a member of the EU after Oct. 31, something that looks increasingly likely, then many of those who voted 'Leave' during the Brexit referendum will defect from the conservatives to the Brexit Party.
And with Prime Minister Boris Johnson having already lost his majority thanks to expulsions and defections, Farage has offered his one-time ally an election pact, according to Reuters, in order to give him a chance to win a majority. Otherwise, he suspects Johnson's conservatives will "take a real kicking" in the upcoming vote.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage offered Prime Minister Boris Johnson an election pact on Wednesday but warned that unless there was a clean-break Brexit, the Conservatives would take a "real kicking" in any election and could not win a majority.
Johnson, who has lost his working majority in the House of Commons, wants to hold an election but parliament has ordered him to ask the EU to delay Brexit until 2020 unless he can strike a transition deal at an EU summit on Oct. 17-18.
