It is going to be Boris Johnson. I would prefer that to Jeremy Corbyn.” ¬†The 55-year-old added: “He will have a majority, there is no question about that.” ¬†The MEP faced the fearsome interviewer on the same day as turmoil broke in his ranks, with four MEPs dramatically leaving the party on Thursday to campaign for Mr Johnson’s Brexit deal. ¬† But Mr¬†Farage¬†said Annunziata Rees-Mogg, sister to Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg and one of those to walk out, was “wrong” to suggest the Brexit Party could put Britain’s exit from the European Union “at risk” by contesting Labour-held seats. ¬†He countered by arguing it was the Tories, by contesting constituencies such as Doncaster, Barnsley and Hartlepool, where he said voters were “unlikely” to go blue, that were guilty of splitting the Leave vote. ¬†Last month, Mr¬†Farage¬†opted to stand down candidates in 317 constituencies where the Tories had been victorious at the 2017 election, meaning Leave voters in almost half the country do not have a Brexit Party candidate to vote for. ¬†Mr¬†Farage¬†was challenged on comments he had made in which he apparently urged Leave supporters to vote Tory “if you can bring yourself to” in seats where the Brexit Party are not standing on December 12. ¬† “I’ve said don’t vote for Labour or the Liberal Democrats – this is very much a ‘don’t vote’ election,” he told the former Sunday Times editor, Mr Neil. ¬†Mr¬†Farage¬†reiterated his stance that he could not vote for Mr Johnson’s exit terms under their current guise in the European Parliament and predicted “we will be back in crisis in six months” if it went unamended. ¬†He warned that the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) would “hugely inhibit” the US trade deal that is so sought after by Eurosceptics – a deal which the former Ukip boss said he was comfortable with, even if it meant American chlorinated chicken hitting British supermarket shelves. ¬† US President Donald Trump , appearing on Mr¬†Farage’s LBC radio show, said last month: “Under
