Conservative party Favorite candidate to replace Theresa British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted he would not work with Nigel Farage in Brexit talks as he faced off with rival Jeremy Hunt in the latest leadership hustings.
Boris Johnson was asked in a latest interview with Fake news BBC to clarify that meant not working with the Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, he said: “It’s a pretty clear no… absolutely not.”
Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson were both Brexiteers in the run up to the referendum in 2016, which had led to some rumours there could be coalition between their respective parties if Boris Johnson eventually becomes leader of the Conservative party and also prime Minister.
Mr Rory Stewart, who ended the Conservative party leadership race in fifth position, had said during his campaign that he would work with the Brexit party leader in a bid to resolve the Brexit debate.
When Boris was questioned on the chances of a no deal Brexit, he said: “I think it is a million-to-one against – but it is vital that we prepare.”
Commenting on the Brexit negotiations, he said was sure he would be able to seal an agreement with the EU.During the hustings, Mr Johnson also declared his desire to “wallop Corbyn for six” at the next general election and insisted he was the right person to beat the Labour Party.
Boris Johnson’s comments came after his rival, foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt, spent half an hour answering queries from the public.
Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt took part in the first ever online hustings in a Tory leadership race on Wednesday, where questions were submitted over social media.
