Nigel Farage refuses to stand down candidates in Tory split seats to save Brexit after Boris Johnson gave him ‘nothing’ – The SunNovember 13, 2019
NIGEL Farage has snubbed Tory offers to save Brexit by refusing to stand down candidates in the Labour marginal seats.
With 24 hours to go before nominations close, the Brexit Party boss insisted he wasn't caving to demands to deliver Boris Johnson the election.
'I'M NOT FOR SALE'
Mr Farage's battle-cry came after he vowed to stand down in 317 seats the Tories won last time.
The Brexiteer has since been under pressure from Conservative Euro-sceptics to stand aside in hundreds of Labour seats.
But Mr Farage has refused to do so after the PM gave him "nothing" for helping out the first time around.
"I made a massive concession, they gave me nothing in return," he said.
I made a massive concession, they gave me nothing in return.
"In Labour constituencies in which the challenger is not and frankly never will be the con party, the challenger is the Brexit party. "And the only people now threatening to split the vote are the Conservative party.
Mr Farage told a rally of loyal party supporters at a boxing club in East London: "We are going to take on all the Remainers in this country."
And he said he would refuse to bow down to "press intimidation".
He claimed to need Brexit Party MPs in Parliament to hold Boris Johnson to account to rip up his Brexit deal and fight for a loose free trade deal instead with the bloc.
"Boris did something I hope he sticks to," he added. "If not, he'll regret it."
Mr Farage – who posed for pictures while throwing jabs at British heavyweight boxer Dereck Chisora – vowed to "teach Labour a lesson" for claiming the people didn't know what they were voting for when they opted for Brexit in 2016.
And he again insisted he wouldn't be bought off by the Tories, telling the crowd: "I am not for sale!"
