Nigel Farage is set to offer Boris Johnson an election pact which he claims will win the Conservatives a 100 seat majority.

The Brexit Party leader has reportedly proposed a “non-aggression pact” under which he will not field candidates against the 28 hardline Tory MPs of the European Research Group (ERG).

Mr Farage also promised to stand aside in several other seats in exchange for the Toris not fielding candidates in dozens of Labour seats that voted leave.

“If we get an election, an alliance between Boris and myself done intelligently, with a clear message, I think we’ll be unstoppable,” Mr Farage told The Sunday Times.

Mr Johnson called for an election last week after suffering a series of defeats in the House of Commons. (PA)

“If Boris decides the only way forward, to get Brexit delivered, is through a general election offering people a clean break, in those circumstances, I’m 100 per cent behind him wanting to win the election, there would be a non-aggression pact.”

He added: “We have done a huge amount of research and analysis on this that will say to Boris Johnson’s team, ‘If you do this, between us we’ll have a majority of between 70 and 100 seats’.”

Mr Farage’s latest comments come as Sajid Javid refused to rule out a pact with the Brexit Party in a general election, but insisted the Conservative Party does not “need” electoral alliances.

Appearing on The Andrew Marr Show following the announcement of Amber Rudd’s resignation on Saturday evening, the Chancellor was asked whether he would feel comfortable working with Nigel Farage after striking an election deal.

Mr Javid said he supported holding a general election despite “sad” timing, saying: “We absolutely now need an election. It is being forced on us because Parliament is trying to kneecap these negotiations.”

He was then asked five times to publicly rule out a pact with the Brexit Party, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson is believed to have privately ruled out.

Mr Javid said: “We don’t need an electoral alliance with anyone. We can stand on our own two feet, put our message across.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid arrives at the BBC Broadcasting House in London to appear on the Andrew Marr show.

“The picture our opponents are painting of us, of course they would paint a false picture. We are a proud centre-right, moderate, one-nation party.

“There is nothing extremist about wanting to meet the will of the British people on a simple question which was ‘Do you want to leave the EU or not?’

“We are not in an election yet. I am clear we do not need an alliance with anyone.”

Mr Farage has publicly offered a non-aggression pact between the two parties, citing the Conservatives’ substantial losses in the 2019 European Parliament elections.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, the Brexit Party leader said the offer was “100% sincere” and would help return Mr Johnson to Downing Street.

He wrote: “Johnson should cast his mind back to the European elections in May, in which his party came fifth, and ask himself: does he want the Tories to find themselves in a similarly disastrous position when the results of the next general election come in, or does he want to sign a non-aggression pact with me and return to Downing Street?”
