Only days before Boris Johnson is replaced as Tory leader and Prime Minister, Nigel Farage has delivered a “wipeout” election warning to the Conservative Party.
A viewer had asked the former UKIP leader if Boris Johnson had “destroyed” the Conservative Party for good.
According to Mr Farage, who previously admitted to being a Conservative member under Margaret Thatcher’s reign, Mr Johnson lost “too many” of the people who had voted for the Conservative Party in the 2019 General Election.
It was also alleged by the ex-leader of the Brexit Party that the current frontrunner in the Conservative leadership campaign, Liz Truss, would need to “pull a rabbit out of a hat” to avert a crushing electoral loss.
Mr Farage also said that the Foreign Secretary would need “extraordinary courage” to help the Conservative Party prevail.
He said: “As Lord Hayward was just saying there are those that remain fiercely loyal to Boris Johnson.
“He just lost too many of those who’d voted Conservative in 2019.
“I think they’re headed for a 1997-style wipeout unless Truss can really pull some rabbits out of the hat.
“To do that she’s going to need to display the most extraordinary courage.
“Has she got it within her?
“I doubt it, but I hope for the sake of the country that I’m proved wrong.”
