    Nigel Farage election pact proposal rejected by No 10

    Boris is playing with fire. He risks splitting the vote and letting in socialists!

    Boris Johnson will not make an election pact with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, Downing Street has said.

    Mr Farage said his party and the Conservatives should make a deal and "together we would be unstoppable".

    Two newspaper adverts set out his offer to help "secure a big Brexit majority" and to "destroy Corbyn's Labour".

    But a senior Conservative source said Mr Farage was "not a fit and proper person" and "should never be allowed anywhere near government".

    Mr Farage tweeted the remarks "look like comments from deep inside the bunker", adding: "I do not want a job in government. I just want to put country before party and deliver a clean break Brexit."

    Mr Farage has offered a "non-aggression pact" between his party and the Conservatives, on the condition that Mr Johnson sign up for "a clean-break Brexit" - in other words, no deal.

    The aim is try to see off the threat from a "Remain alliance" of opposition parties who oppose Brexit and could depose the Tories.

    Mr Farage says he will not field candidates in any of the Conservatives' existing seats and targets if, in return, the Tories stand aside in more than 80 Leave-voting constituencies where they are unlikely to win.

    He made the offer in a full-page advert in the Sun and a wraparound advert in the Daily Express on Wednesday.

    At the weekend, The Brexit Party leader said the offer was "100% sincere" and would help return Mr Johnson to Downing Street.

    He wrote in the Sunday Telegraph: "Johnson should cast his mind back to the European elections in May, in which his party came fifth, and ask himself: does he want the Tories to find themselves in a similarly disastrous position when the results of the next general election come in, or does he want to sign a non-aggression pact with me and return to Downing Street?"

    When asked about a potential alliance on the Andrew Marr Show, Chancellor Sajid Javid said: "We don't need an electoral alliance with anyone. We can stand on our own two feet, put our message across."

    BJ thinks that the Brexit party will lose all its support if he delivers Brexit on Oct. 31st so he doesn't need Nigel and doesn't want to owe him anything.

    Either that or he is going to betray Brexit on purpose.

    Time will tell.
