A new poll has shown that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is expected to win a sum total of zero seats at the next general election.
The ComRes poll, produced in association with The Telegraph, has the Brexit Party on 13%, behind the Liberal Democrats (17%), Labour (29%) and the Conservatives (30%).
According to ComRes Chairman Andrew Hawkins, this sort of result would leave the Tories as the largest party with 294 seats – 32 short of a majority.
However, this outcome would be highly unlikely to end our current political stalemate. Feasibly, a majority government could only be formed if Labour did a deal with the Lib Dems and the SNP – something that would be difficult to envisage.
The good news is that Nigel Farage’s band of belligerent Brexiteers would be shut out of Parliament entirely – leaving Farage to contemplate another general election flop.
