Johnson does not want a ballot deal with Farage; SNP wants referendum again

Brexit party leader Nigel Farage has offered the British Conservatives a coalition in the upcoming elections, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson has now rejected that. Farage offered to refrain from submitting his own candidates if the Conservatives were willing to abandon their Brexit agreement with the European Union.

Farage made it clear in the presentation of his election program that the Brexit party does not want any cooperation and interference from the European Union, including the Brexit agreement that has already been accepted by Johnson and the EU heads of government.

Farage said the prime minister's agreement with the European Union is "not a Brexit." The United Kingdom would have all the disadvantages of EU membership, without any participation. The leader of the Brexit Party spoke threatening words to Johnson: Farage announced that he would put his own candidates forward in all districts and constituencies should Johnson not want to conclude an election pact.

According to the British press, Boris Johnson has abandoned the idea of a British exit without a deal, although the text of the Conservative election program has not yet been presented. In recent months, Johnson has always said that he wanted to leave the EU on October 31, with or without an agreement. After the expiry of that date, the situation changed.

The Johnson government has so far completely ruled out an alliance with the Brexit Party. The prime minister is campaigning with the motto “Get Brexit done.” With this, Johson wants to get a majority of its own in the British parliament that is big enough to get his deal through.

Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon of the Scottish National Party (SNP) wants to make a claim to the British government for Christmas to give Scotland the powers to hold a second referendum on independence.

The SNP wants to hold another referendum next year on the future of Scotland in the UK. The Scottish government needs permission from London to do that.

Sturgeon can ask the British government to transfer the power to issue a referendum to the Scottish Parliament through a special law. The Edinburgh Parliament must first agree to this. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he did not intend to allow a second referendum in September.
