Heseltine warns Tories: don’t follow ‘poisonous politics of Nigel Farage’

Michael Heseltine has warned the Conservative leadership candidates that they will never win a general election by following the “poisonous politics of Nigel Farage”, as he said the prospect of 100,000 Tory members choosing the next prime minister filled him with dread.

The former deputy prime minister, who was suspended from the Conservatives for voting Liberal Democrat in last week’s European elections, said the party would permanently lose his support and that of millions of other Conservatives by becoming more “Faragiste”.

Heseltine made the remarks in a speech to mark his appointment as president of the European Movement.

In a warning to the Conservative leadership candidates, he said: “Turn yourselves into branch offices of Brexit if you wish. But if you do so, you are on your own. Those upon whom you depend to win power in a general election will not come back. Good luck. Goodbye.
