During a European Parliamentary session on Wednesday, Brexit Party MEPs heckled some of their counterparts while attacking Guy Verhofstadt. Such was the level of discontent towards some European MEPs that Martin Daubney even labelled the EU parliament as Mr Verhofstadt’s “Death Star”.
However, according to Parliamentary sketchwriter, Michael Deacon, the attacks from Nigel Farage’s party all sum up to guaranteeing the UK’s exit from the EU.
Writing in The Daily Telegraph, Mr Deacon insisted that while some of the apparent antics from the Brexit Party MEPs may some “boorish” and “mindless” it was, in fact, part of a cunning plan.
According to the sketchwriter, the plan is to “make the EU so heartily sick of us that they reject any request to delay Brexit, and just kick us out”.
As well as the attacks from the MEPs from within his party, Mr Farage also issued a tirade against the “the pipsqueak prime minister of Luxembourg” in reference to Boris Johnson’s recent press conference debacle.
The move from the Brexit Party comes as Leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg praised Mr Farage.
Speaking an event with The Daily Telegraph, Mr Rees-Mogg labelled the Brexit Party leader as “the most important political figure” outside of Parliament in recent memory.
Such was the praise for the Brexit Party MEP, that Mr Rees-Mogg also insisted that Brexiteers “owe him a great debt” for his work to try and secure the UK’s exit from the EU.
The Tory MP also warned that Conservative and Brexit Party supporters all want the same thing which is to leave the EU.
Mr Rees-Mogg added: “What do the Brexit Party want? One thing and that is Brexit.
“We now have a Conservative leader who shares their attachment to their importance of that one issue.”
Although the Tory MP insisted that there are shared values between the two parties, he also acknowledged that it is essential to deliver Brexit.
He concluded: “We must deliver Brexit.
“Uniting us is done by delivering not by back room stitch ups.
“Deliver Brexit, we all come back together.”
Echoing Mr Rees-Mogg’s claims, the Prime Minister has continued to insist that the UK will leave the EU by October 31.
Despite the current Parliament suspension, Mr Johnson persisted in the belief that at the EU summit on October 17, there is still a chance for a deal to be secured.
Moreover, the Government has confirmed that talks with the EU over a new deal had been progressing since Mr Johnson became Prime Minister in July.
This week, EU officials agreed to another conditional extension to Article 50 if the UK requests it.
In order to enact that extension, however, a proposal from the UK must be submitted by the end of this month.
If there is no proposal, Finland’s Prime Minister, Antti Rinne admitted that any chance of an extension will be “over”.
Despite that, a Downing Street source said: “We will continue negotiating and put forward proposals at the appropriate time."
