Oh deep joy. Cue a hard Brexiteer as Tory leader and an utter shambles of a country, if it wasn't already.

We’re so fucked if someone who thinks «no deal no problem» is selected.

Backing a no deal is probably necessary to become leader of the Tories, whereas brexiteer Corbyn could probably win a general election if he backs remain and Farage splits the Tory vote.

The problem for this person is that "no deal" has been rejected in the house. Only ~25-30% of the house would vote for it. The PM would be thrown out the next day if they tried to force it through.

Also, Nigel Farage clearly needs a lesson in stats, thinking that there is a UK MEP majority for no deal, which is not the case at all.

Well, he certainly has no problem influencing foreign elections for the benefit of candidates he likes ...

Donald Trump has praised Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage, talked up the prospect of a Brexit trade deal [...]
He had already praised Johnson on Saturday, saying he would be an excellent leader.
He went on: “I have a very good relationship with Nigel Farage, with many people over there (in the UK) and we’ll see what happens. I may meet with him. They want to meet. We’ll see what happens.”[...]
The controversy was further exacerbated on Sunday when the US ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, suggested the NHS would be on the table in post-Brexit trade talks. [...]
I just don't think being the "Trumpchurian Candidate" or going after the NHS post Brexit is a thing that would help Johnson or Farage in Party or general elections ...
