Speaking to LBC, Ms Harris said: “How the constitution works is that there are two main parties who can win.

“It is either Labour or the Tory Party.

“The unfortunate position we find ourselves in is if you vote for Labour it will lead to a second referendum and potentially cancelling Brexit altogether.

“Whereas if you vote for the Tory Party they are offering a Brexit.

“I think this is a tactical thing to do because you’re actually voting to make sure the vote you cast back in 2016 is upheld.

Ms Fogarty asked: “But for those people listening just to be to clear, none of you is a candidate but the truth is you are publicly in a very high profile way declaring, ‘don’t vote for Brexit Party candidates, vote for Tory candidates’. That’s quite a move.”
