Ann Widdecombe hit back at colleague Martin Horwood with the stunning wish after the Lib Dem MEP outlined his party's plans to help stop Brexit from within the European Parliament. The Brexit Party MEP insisted her party's aim has remained "the polar opposite" as she reiterated her commitment to seeing Britain leave the European Union in October. Speaking to ITV News, Ms Widdecombe said: "Our aim is to deliver the result of the 2016 referendum and I would hope all three of us get out P45s by the end of October. That is what we’re very much working towards.
"I think we’ve already done quite a lot by topping the polls in the European elections and we’re the largest party here."
The former Tory MP, who switched to the Brexit Party earlier this year over criticism toward the British Government's failure to deliver on Brexit, claimed she and colleagues had already started to have an "impact" on the last stages of Brexit.
She continued: "I’ve noticed after our big rally in Birmingham, Jeremy Hunt quite suddenly started talking tough on October 31 whereas until then he had been much cautious about it.
"I think we can have a real impact. As far as while we are, what we do apart from representing our constituents with casework and that sort of stuff, we will resist any further encroachment of the EU into our affairs.

"And in the unlikely event that there were something that would reduce their intervention, we would support it."
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage on Friday promised Tory leadership frontrunner Boris Johnson he is willing to "fight" to secure his party's position on the British political scene.
The former Foreign Secretary ruled out he would be willing to enter a partnership with the Brexit Party if he is elected Prime Minister over the coming weeks. In response to Mr Johnson's rebuttal, Mr Farage told the Daily Telegraph: "Boris says he wants to put me back in my box. So if he wants a fight - hold my jacket.”
Mr Farage also said he had already met major Conservative Party donors, who would flock to his party “in droves” ahead of an election
