NIGEL Farage has slammed “arrogant” Tory calls for the Brexit Party to stand aside in a general election to avoid splitting the Leave vote.
Farage was fuming at the suggestion and said his party are campaigning because the Conservatives cannot be “trusted” to deliver Brexit.
The comments come after the arch Euroscpetic vowed to “annihilate” the Tories if Boris Johnson pushes through a fake Brexit based on Theresa May’s hated deal.
He fired off a warning shot to the PM that Britain must leave the EU by October 31 – or the Conservatives will face the consequences.
Farage’s recent outburst came after Brexit Party MEP Claire Fox accused Johnson’s cabinet of treating her colleagues as “junior wing of the Tory party” that can be “dismissed” as “offensive”.
Backing Fox, Farage fumed on Twitter: “As @Fox_Claire says, it is arrogant for the @Conservatives to say we should stand aside.
“They are the very reason we exist. We simply do not trust them to deliver.”

Before the vote Johnson had called on voters to back his party, saying: “The Brexit Party cannot deliver Brexit, only the Conservatives can."
