Michael Heseltine warns against Nigel Farage’s ‘poison politics’

THE Conservatives risk being captured by the ‘narrow nationalism, phobia-filled and poisonous politics of Nigel Farage’, Lord Heseltine has warned.

In a speech to mark his appointment as president of the pro-EU pressure group European Movement, the former deputy prime minister (pictured) called on Tory leadership candidates to reject no deal as an option — and back a second vote.

He said: ‘Such a decision, which would deny either parliament or the people a say on a no-deal outcome that neither wants, would be nothing short of a democratic and constitutional outrage.’
