After Theresa May negotiated her original deal with EU leaders, both she and Brussels insisted that it was the only possible deal. Despite this, Mr Johnson managed to renegotiate a new deal that got rid of the much-maligned Irish backstop and replaced it with a hybrid customs arrangement. However, Nigel Farage has lambasted the Prime Minister’s deal, branding it “not a real Brexit” and claiming it is even worse than Mrs May’s deal.

“We will concentrate our total effort into all the seats that are held by the Labour Party, who have completely broken their manifesto pledge in 2017 to respect the result of the referendum, and we will also take on the rest of the Remainer parties.

“We will stand up and fight them all."

Asked to reconcile the idea that Mr Johnson’s deal with “not a real Brexit” with standing aside for half his candidates, Mr Berkeley-Hurst, said the Brexit Party would push to make sure he Mr Johnson delivers on the EU referendum result.

He added that he even suspected Mr Johnson might change his deal once he has won a majority.

The Brexit Party PPC said: “There’s no question that the type of treaty that Boris has negotiated is terrible, we certainly don’t want it.
