Nigel Farage’s offer of a non-aggression pact with Boris Johnson at the next general election has been firmly rejected by Downing Street.
The Brexit Party leader used a newspaper advert on Wednesday to set out how he would not stand candidates against the Conservatives in some areas if the prime minister committed to a “clean-break Brexit”.
Under the terms of the offer, the Brexit Party would not contest seats at a general election in areas where the Tories were competing against the Liberal Democrats or other Remain-backing parties.
In exchange, Mr Farage called on Mr Johnson not to field candidates against Brexit Party hopefuls in Leave-supporting areas in the North, the Midlands and Wales that are currently held by Labour.
The prime minister would also have to support taking the UK out of the EU without a reworked version of his predecessor Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, known as a no-deal Brexit.
