Brexit news: Richard Tice warns of ‘coalition of remoaning anti-democrats’ | Politics | News


The MEP claimed Remainers would takeover the Commons in the event of a coalition. Mr Tice’s fears come as a number of Conservative MPs have said they would hold talks with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn about how to stop a no deal Brexit. Boris Johnson has insisted the UK will leave the EU on October 31 with or without a deal.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Tice said: “It’s not a Government of national unity – it would be a coalition of remoaning anti-democrats.

“We’ve not yet implemented the decision of the people.

“Fine if they want a review of the decision 10-15 years after we’ve implemented Brexit fine.

“But the reality is lets get it done, lets implement Brexit.”

Mr Tice, who founded the pro-Brexit group Leave Means Leave, went on to claim the Conservative Party will be “finished” if Mr Johnson misses his deadline.

He suggested the Brexit Party, led by Nigel Farage, would be ready to enter Government.

Mr Tice added: “If the Conservatives do not deliver Brexit on October 31 and they have to go begging to the European Union for a third time, the Conservative Party then would be finished.

“Our phones would be red hot with furious Tory MPs saying ‘we want to come over to the Brexit Party’.

One, referencing US President Donald Trump’s moto, said: “Time to drain the dirty swamp.”

Another added: “We voted leave in Preston, problem is our Labour MP is a Remoaner. Roll on the general election.”

Another said: “We have had the financial and moral burden of taking care of most of continental Europe for a century now, but the time has come, Europe needs to manage without our blood, sweat, tears and money.

“It’s time for us to fix ourselves and grow again.”

Perhaps frustratingly for Mr Farage, a recent poll has shown his Brexit Party has dropped in popularity due to Mr Johnson’s bullish stand when it comes to taking Britain out of the EU.

The Brexit Party has dropped six percentage points in barely two months.

Mr Farage is under pressure not to stand candidates against no deal backing Conservatives in any general election.

The argument for this is to allow recently elected Tory leader and Prime Minister Mr Johnson to get Brexit over the line.

ComRes published its most recent poll last week, commissioned by the Daily Telegraph, which put Conservative support at 31 percent, four points ahead of Labour on 27 percent.
