Iain Dale exposes how December election is the key to ensuring a no deal Brexit in 2020
LBC host Iain Dale argued Nigel Farage’s pact with Boris Johnson in the election did not make it less likely that the UK leaves without a deal. Mr Dale told Express.co.uk’s video news editor Sam Stevenson a new Parliament should not be judged by the rules of the old parliament. He added that MPs were successful in preventing a no deal Brexit previously but if the Conservative Party win a majority, a no deal exit from the EU could be realised.
Mr Dale said: “I don’t see how this takes no deal Brexit off the table.
“In fact, I’d say this pact puts it back on the table.
“In any negotiation, you can’t really take a no deal Brexit off the table.
“Parliament tried to ensure that that happened at the end of October and they were successful in that.

“It is an entirely different ball game.
“You can’t judge the next parliament by the rules of the last parliament.
“You also have a new speaker in the next Parliament which I think will be quite crucial.”
Brexit Party’s leader Nigel Farage was initially criticised for his decision to “put country before party” by removing MP candidates in the winter election.
However, polling experts have remarked that the Tories have firmly held the lead as the election date draws closer.
Early predictions indicated that the Liberal Democrats would take votes away from the Labour Party and weaken the opposition against the Conservatives.

But the Pro-EU Jo Swinson was forced to admit her plan to overturn Brexit has been shelved in a humiliating television grilling by Andrew Neil.
The Liberal Democrat leader was left floundering when told her dismal election campaign had bombed and she had no chance of enacting her plan to stop Britain quitting the EU.
Ms Swinson launched her campaign vowing to become the next Prime Minister so she could revoke the Article 50 exit process without a second referendum.
But her popularity has plummeted and she admitted that her party has been squeezed.
