Breaking News from Brexit Party

The leader of the Brexit Party Nigel Farage has said it will not stand candidates in the 317 seats won by the Conservatives at the 2017 general election.

Mr Farage said fielding candidates across the country could increase the chances of another referendum on the EU taking place.

He continued his party had made the decision based on polling which indicated standing in seats in London, the South and the South West may split the vote of pro-Brexit candidates and allow pro-Remain candidates to win.

Instead the party would concentrate its efforts on winning seats held by Labour.

This could spell disaster for Labour seats in Leave areas.  The full impact of this will not be known until after the election but this will give traditional Labour voters who voted the leave the option to vote for a Leave Party but who would have been reluctant to vote for the Conservative Party.
