BBC’s Andrew Neil grilled Nigel Farage over who he will vote for in the December 12 election as he said it won’t be Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Farage said he is sure Boris Johnson will win a majority.
Nigel Farage revealed he would vote for Boris Johnson on the general election providing he negotiates a Candad-style trade deal with the EU. The Brexit Party leader was adamant that Boris Johnson will receive a majority in the December 12 election. Mr Neil asked: “Simple question, who do you want to be Prime Minister?”
Speaking on to BBC’s Andrew Neil, Mr Farage said: “Not Jeremy Corbyn, obviously.
“It’s going to be Boris Johnson.”
Mr Neil pressed: “Do you want that?”
The Brexit Party leader continued: “I prefer that to Jeremy Corbyn, of course.”
The BBC host said: “You live in a Tory constituency, who are you going to vote for?”
Mr Farage replied: “I haven’t decided yet.
“Let’s see because there’s a big thing here.
“Boris Johnson said as this campaign kicked off that we would now go to negotiate a super Canada-style trade deal and that we would leave next year, that would be great.”
The Brexit Party leader claimed his success at the European elections had helped “to create Boris Johnson” by shaping the debate on the Britain’s delayed EU departure.
But in the BBC’s The Andrew Neil interviews, the broadcaster claimed Mr Farage now barely had a “walk on part” and said his “puffed up” talk about delivering a complete realignment of British politics was hubris.
Mr Farage said: “I, as you know, from August I wanted to try and put together a Brexit alliance.
“I believe that this is the defining issue of our age. Working together in a sensible cooperation with the Conservatives and there were some Labour figures that wanted to do it.
“I failed because the Conservative Party didn’t want to do it.”
The Brexit Party leader stood down 317 Brexit Party candidates in Tory seats after warnings he risked splitting the vote.
The move angered some members, who said they had been disenfranchised, while others said he had not gone far enough.
Mr Neil said he said he was facing attacks from all sides.
