Brexit Party “the only challenger to Labour in Wales”

At a Brexit Party rally/conference – held in Newport at the same time as a poorly-attended UKIP conference – the party claimed to be the only opposition to Labour in the south Wales valleys.

The leader of Brexit Party Ltd, Nigel Farage MEP, also said he wouldn’t rule out an electoral pact with the Conservatives if the Tories gave his party/company a free run in Labour seats.

The party called for automatic by-elections when MPs change their political allegiances.

All but one of the current Brexit Party AM were originally elected as members of another party and their leader in the Senedd, Mark Reckless AM (BXP, South Wales East), has switched allegiances three times since 2016 (including a brief stint as an Independent).
