EU elections: What will happen if Brexit Party wins EU elections? Will it spark REBELLION?

Britain will take part in the May 23 unless a solution to the Brexit deadlock is found beforehand. Britons will head to the polls alongside other EU citizens to cast their votes for who they want to represent them in European Parliament. The UK’s failure to leave the EU on the original Brexit date of March 29, ruffled feathers among Brexiteers and has since prompted the emergence of a new .

Lead by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, the Brexit Party will stand in the European elections and is calling for the UK’s immediate withdrawal from the EU if it wins the vote.

The Brexit Party hopes to put an end to the brevet stalemate by putting to bed hopes of a second referendum.

At the Brexit Party launch last month Mr Farage controversially vowed to “put the fear of God” into MPs who her said are obstructing Brexit and betraying the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU.

Mr Farage is standing in South East England, while other high-profile Brexit Party candidates include the businessman Richard Tice, former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe, broadcaster Claire Fox, and journalist Annunziata Rees-Mogg, a former Tory election candidate and sister of Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The Brexit Party has recently surged ahead in the polls as the EU elections draw closer.

In the most recent poll - conducted by YouGov on behalf of advocacy group Hope not Hate - conducted of 5,412 British adults between April 23 and 26, the Brexit Party is now leading with 28 percent.

In second place is the Labour Party, with 22 percent.

Limping into third is the Tories, with just 13 percent - down from 16 percent before the launch of the Brexit Party.

The Green and Change UK parties are both holding ten percent, with the Lib Dems on seven percent.

In last place is UKIP, with five percent.

What will happen if the Brexit Party wins?

The Brexit Party is yet to release its full details about its policies, Mr Farage has indicated that these will be left until after the EU elections.

What is clear is that the Brexit Party is campaigning against a second Brexit referendum and wants the UK to leave the EU immediately if it wins the EU elections.

Speaking at the Brexit Party launch Mr Farage said: “This party is not here just to fight the European elections.

“This party is not just to express our anger - 23 May is the first step of the Brexit Party.

“We will change politics for good.”

Will a Brexit Party victory spark rebellion?

The Tories are dragging behind in the polls ahead of the EU elections.

If the Brexit Party wins then a Tory rebellion seems likely.

Fed-up Conservative MPs could unite to oust PM Theresa May if the Brexit Party wins the EU vote.

Mrs May is currently in talks with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to try and reach a Brexit solution before EU elections day.

But the likelihood of a deal being reached before then looks increasingly weak.

A party source said: “Cabinet is changing its mind from one week to the next. The only thing that stays the same is our inability to get on with leaving.

“If we don’t introduce the WAB we can’t say we’ve tried everything before the EU elections.”

Cabinet ministers were told yesterday the discussions with Labour were “serious and constructive”.

Talks between key figures on both sides to discuss key sticking points are being lined up.
