Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said on Wednesday he would consider a pact with Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservatives ahead of a possible national election if Johnson agreed to press for a 'clean break' Brexit.

"I very much hope that Boris Johnson will simply look at the numbers," Farage told Reuters. "If we stand against them, they cannot win a majority."

Farage added that he expected the Conservatives would "take a real kicking" if Britain did not leave the European Union on Oct. 31, and that his Brexit Party was stepping up preparations for a second referendum on EU membership.
