Of course he did. Farage made an offer Johnson couldn't accept, ditch the Withdrawal Treaty he just negotiated with the EU and truly campaign on a far harder Brexit than Johnson has ever advocated for.
If he doesn't do that about-face, Farage's Brexit Party standing candidates in more than 500 seats and potentially split the Leave vote.
Mike Shedlock thinks Farage's deal is "Preposterous." Mike is wrong. It is the only offer Farage could offer the Tories and stay in any way relevant in a time of electoral chaos and party fluidity.
It is the kind of 'big ask' that his friend Donald Trump would make. It may be an opening bid in a complex negotiation that ends with them making a pact towards the end of the campaign.
Frankly that only happens if the polls shift considerably from where they are.
