Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party will let Jeremy Corbyn become PM by taking votes away from Tories, Jacob Rees-Mogg warns

NIGEL Farage will end up helping Jeremy Corbyn get into No10, Jacob Rees-Mogg warned today.
The top Tory Brexiteer claimed the Brexit Party risked splitting the Conservative vote and letting Labour get in.

And he insisted that any Tory MPs or councillors who vote for Mr Farage’s new party should be automatically fired.

Mr Rees-Mogg vowed to stay loyal to Theresa May – even though his own sister has defected to the Brexit Party.

He told LBC: “I greatly respect Nigel Farage and I fully understand what my sister Annunziata is doing in supporting them but I don’t think it’s the right way to do it.

“If we get to a General Election with the votes split between the Conservative party and the Brexit Party, all that does is let Jeremy Corbyn in who doesn’t deliver Brexit at all because the Labour party is quite hostile to it.

“So what we need to do is ultimately reunite the Conservative party – but that’s a little way off at the moment.”

A number of senior Tories have hinted they could vote for Mr Farage in the European Parliament elections next month.

As many as 40 per cent of Conservative councillors have threatened to jump ship.

But Mr Rees-Mogg called for Tories who vote against their own party to be kicked out for disloyalty.

He said: “We’re not elected because of who we are as individuals, we’re elected because we have a Conservative sign on the ballot paper and therefore the Conservative party is entitled to expect us to support other Conservatives.
