Mr Cleverly said: “A vote for Farage risks letting Jeremy Corbyn into Downing Street via the back door – and the country spending 2020 having two referendums on Brexit and Scottish independence.
“It will not get Brexit done – and it will create another gridlocked Parliament that doesn’t work.”
This was backed up by a senior Tory source who told the Mail Online: “A vote for anyone other than Boris risks Brexit. We don’t do electoral pacts. ”
Even US President Donald Trump condemned the response to Mr Farage on his LBC show, saying the pair would be an “unstoppable force”.
