  • Tory plan for first 100 days of government branded ‘pure fantasy

Annunziata Rees-Mogg, sister of Conservative Jacob Rees-Mogg, was elected as an MEP in May.

Speaking before a press conference in Westminster on Thursday, Mr Longworth said: "For those who want Brexit, Boris Johnson's deal is the only option available".

- Nigel Farage will be live on LBC tonight from 8pm, answering questions from LBC listeners.

Making the announcement on social media, the defectors explaining their decision insisted that if the Brexit Party competed in Labour-held constituencies against the Tories then they risk "splitting the "Leave" vote and allowing a Corbyn coalition into government".

Lucy Harris and Lance Forman are also resigning.

However, she has now defected from the party with which she was elected, and has joined the Conservatives.

Elizabeth II dispute sa fille Anne en public : la vidéo qui fait rire la Toile
Lorsque Sa Majesté lui fit apparemment signe de se manifester, la princesse Anne haussa les épaules et éclata de rire. La reine Elizabeth II a encore une fois fait des siennes.

It comes after MEP John Longworth, who also represents Yorkshire and the Humber, and is the former director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce, lost his party whip on Wednesday for "repeatedly undermining" the party leader.

They encouraged Brexit Party supporters to now switch their votes to PM Boris Johnson's Conservatives.

"The only vote on the Leave side that is now being split is in areas such as Barnsley, the South Wales Valleys, Doncaster and Hartlepool, where there is a risk that the Tories will split our vote".

Mr Longworth had said the party should withdraw hundreds of candidates and focus all its energy on just 20 or 30 seats.

"The Brexit Party shall not be deflected from, or undermined in, its campaign to win Labour seats". The move angered many of his own prospective candidates who were stood down, while others like Longworth wanted Farage to abandon the project altogether for the benefit of getting Brexit done.

"We are receiving a great reception from disenchanted Labour voters and have believe we have a good chance of winning in many seats".
