The fight for the ‘Workington Man’ vote is already set to be the key battleground for Boris’s route to a majority. With his tanks touring northern marginal seats this week, Farage is today also joining the fight for Workington’s pro-Brexit, disaffected Labour voters. You can’t say he isn’t Workington hard…
Solid support in Labour leave areas today. Next up, Workington!

Unfortunately for Farage, many Brexiteers disagree with his strategy; and whilst he has not yet announced any plans to defect, his former Workington Candidate, Philip Walling, on Monday quote Tweeted a Katy Hopkins video; saying “I agree” to Hopkins’ argument Farage “is working against an achievable Brexit” and it’s time to “#BackBoris’.
UPDATE: Guido has seen an email from the Brexit Party confirming that they had removed Philip Walling yesterday November 5, and installed David Walker instead. Walker spoke at the party’s event today in support of Farage’s position.
