The Brexit Party leader said leaving the EU will allow the UK to regain its competitive and independent streak, which the EU ‘fears deeply”. His words come after EU leaders have shown reluctance to accepting the Prime Minister’s new Brexit proposals. Mr Farage now believes Mr Johnson’s only way forward is to back no deal, as he says the EU’s main priority is keeping the UK in the customs union and so they won’t accept any deal that tries to stray away from this.

He told The Telegraph: “The EU is a political project.

“It is an empire that seeks to expand and use force. Most of us want no part of it. 

“For Leavers, the most popular option by far now is a clean break Brexit, with no political attachments to the European courts or any EU institutions.

“Leaving is about regaining Britain’s independence and democracy. And in economic terms, it is about becoming competitive, something that Barnier and his team fear deeply.”

Mr Johnson has said he remains “cautiously optimistic” about a deal.

This is despite EU leaders ripping apart Mr Johnson’s new Brexit proposals.

They accused him of putting forward untested ideas to solve the Irish border crisis.

Chief negotiator Michel Barnier said the EU needed workable solutions “today not tomorrow”.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also told MEPs that progress had been limited, despite the fact he would “not exclude” a deal in the coming days, progress had been limited.

Over in Westminster, a group of Conservative MPs have demanded assurances from the Prime Minister that he will not take the party into the next general election with a pledge to leave with no deal.

But Mr Farage welcome a general election, as he says it will highlight the Tories’ failure to deliver Brexit.

He said: “Soon, I hope, there will be a long overdue general election in which the choices should be clear. Recent Downing Street briefings suggest that as talks with the EU collapse, the Tories will fight the next poll on a clean break ticket.

“I suppose they have no option. Their repeated promise of leaving the EU by 31 October is highly unlikely to be fulfilled.

“The Tories’ target, dare I say it their obsession, is to try and take ground from the Brexit Party.

“Rightly, they are worried about voters abandoning them following yet another Conservative failure to deliver Brexit.

“But even if they did fight the next election on this ticket, why on earth would anybody trust them?

“In so many recent Tory manifestos, pledges have been made without any intention to deliver them. The public is beginning to realise that.”

Mr Farage added that the Conservative Party is trying to take a tougher stance on Brexit as it is threatened by the Brexit Party.

He said: “If Johnson goes for a clean Brexit manifesto, he will lose some votes to the Lib Dems.

“But he stands to gain many more from us, provided we are seen to cooperate.

“Winning a huge Brexit majority in parliament is the prize that awaits.

“If we work together to fight against the real enemy, Jeremy Corbyn and his bunch of wreckers, we would deliver a positive campaign with a decisive result.”
