    The leader of the UK's Brexit Party has offered to help Prime Minister Boris Johnson win the December election, but only if he abandons his withdrawal deal with the European Union.

    Nigel Farage opened his election campaign by threatening to field candidates in every seat against the Conservative Party if the Brexit deal is not dropped.

    But Johnson quickly ruled out any sort of alliance.
