May on BRINK: Brexiteer reveals what will END PM's reign – 'She brought it to life!'
Tory rebel and executive of the 1922 Committee Nigel Evans made the revelation on LBC radio this morning. He told host Tom Swarbrick that, on top of her weak withdrawal agreement, the Prime Minister was also single-handedly responsible for bringing Nigel Farage “back to life”. The admission arose after Ms Swarbrick questioned how much time Mrs May had left.
He asked: “There are reports around this morning, which I’m sure you’ve seen, that suggest she could stay for potentially another six months.
“Would you accept that? Or would you push for the rule changes to try and get shot of her before then?”
Mr Evans fiercely responded: “Personally, I can’t accept that.
“I agree with Geoffrey Clifton-Brown.
“The can has been kicked down the road and now we’ve run out of road.
“We’ve had the withdrawal agreement bill brought to us three times.
“Unless the Prime Minister is able to do something that is going to get that through this time, then clearly that’s it – the withdrawal agreement is dead.
“The Prime Minister has managed to bring Nigel Farage back to life and even bring the Liberal Democrats back to life.”
Theresa May’s Brexit deal is “like a surrender document of a nation that has been defeated in war”, Nigel Farage has told supporters.
The Brexit Party leader was cheered by hundreds of people at a rally in Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, on Saturday afternoon which was also shown a preview of the party’s new election broadcast.
Mr Farage lambasted both the Tory government and the Labour leadership but made no mention of newspaper reports he left the scene of a collision between his chauffeur-driven car and another vehicle in Kent on Thursday.
Mr Farage said: “It (Brexit) hasn’t happened partly because of the dishonest, duplicitous and utterly useless Prime Minister in Theresa May.
“No question, she is the worst Prime Minister in the history of this country, bar none.”
He told the rally that Mrs May’s deal would be a new EU treaty.
