Nigel Farage prepares Brexit Party for general election

Nigel Farage has revealed plans to plough £200 billion of investment into the regions as he put his Brexit Party on a general election footing.

He was speaking to thousands of the newly-formed party’s members at its biggest rally so far in Birmingham.

He also announced that 100 candidates are ready to contest parliamentary constituencies.

Meanwhile Tory leadership hopeful Jeremy Hunt hardened his rhetoric around a No-Deal EU departure by saying he would back it, but with a “heavy heart”.
