Nigel Farage: Tories offered jobs and peerages to Brexit Party

He added: 'There are very clearly seats in which we are the lead challenger and their are other seats in which they are the lead challenger to Labour, and we could have done a deal on that basis, but the priority for the Conservative Party, they do not want the Brexit Party to get seats in Parliament.

"What are they afraid of that they have had to go after thousands of phone calls to individual candidates from the Brexit Party to say: "Stand down, you can get this" or 'Stand down, or this"'.

Boris Johnson rejected the offer, saying the "only way" to deliver Brexit was to vote Conservative.

Asked if he feared splitting the Leave vote, Farage said: "I'm very anxious about the Leave vote being split, very, very anxious about these constituencies that have been Labour for decades, where the Conservatives have never won, can never win, and yet they are still putting up a candidate against our candidates who are the challengers to Labour in those seats. Nigel standing 317 candidates down on Monday weakened our position".

But the Conservatives denied any such offer was made, with Mr Farage today adding the Tory party would rather risk losing the election than forming a Leave alliance with him.

Farage's claim came just minutes after Rupert Lowe, the Brexit Party candidate in the Labour-Tory marginal seat of Dudley North, stood down citing concerns that he might split the Brexit vote.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Britain he will "absolutely guarantee" that his government will not extend the Brexit transition period before the end of year. It shows you the tradition that exists in Westminster'.

"As you can imagine, I said I do not want, and I will never have, anything to do with this kind of behaviour".

A spokesperson for the Conservative Party said: "We don't do electoral pacts - our pact is with the British people".

Party officials said Ms Widdecombe was told she would be part of the government's Brexit negotiating team if she stood down, according to the Guardian.

"This gives a whiff of the corrupt way the establishment works".

'Leave us alone. If you can't win on your own merits, then really you shouldn't be a chairman of a party in this country.

However, Farage also confirmed that he would still be standing candidates in key Labour-Tory marginals, and it appears that Tory Party chiefs are deeply anxious about the prospect of failing to make significant gains in these areas.

If we can get a working majority, all we need is 9 more seats, said Boris Johnson.

Mr Farage's vented his anger after the nominations deadline of 4pm passed last night.

The Brexit Party MEP is contesting in Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, one of the country's most marginal seats.

The used Southampton FC chairman's resolution comes on the eve of a visit to the constituency by Mr Farage, who had been expected to lend Mr Lowe his backing.
