Mr Farage has said he will “100 percent” support the under-fire Prime Minister in an election if Mr Johnson pursues his “do or die” Brexit and delivers a “clean break” from the European Union. The leading Brexiteer insists a pack between the Tories and the Brexit Party will be “unstoppable” and has outlined his strategy to drain Remainer’s out of the House of Commons. Mr Farage told the Sunday Times: “If we get an election, an alliance between Boris and myself done intelligently, with a clear message, I think we’ll be unstoppable.

“If Boris decides the only way forward, to get Brexit delivered, is through a general election offering people a clean break, in those circumstances, I’m 100 percent behind him wanting to win the election, there would be a non-aggression pact.”

Mr Farage has also said if Mr Johnson accepts his proposal he will not stand candidates against any of the 28 members of the powerful European Research Group (ERG) who voted against Theresa May’s failed withdrawal agreement, as well Cabinet Brexiteers such as Dominic Raab, Priti Patel and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The Brexit Party leader also confirmed talks have already been held with the ERG chairman Steve Baker about a possible deal.

“My response is to say now we will not stand against any of the 28 who opposed that third attempt to put that dismal treaty through the House of Commons.

“And far from not standing against them, if we can actively help them and support them in their constituencies, we will.”

The veteran eurosceptic has also offered a lifeline to any Tories who voted for Mrs May’s Brexit deal at the third attempt but have now had a change of heart - this includes Mr Johnson who signed up to the deal at the 11th hour the last time it was put to a Commons vote.

Mr Farage added: “Any of those who did vote for this thing on the third time and now regret it bitterly and realise that it is the worst deal in history, anyone that says that they will not vote for any reheated form of Mrs May’s deal, we will also stand down our candidates there too.”
