The May 23 European Parliamentary election are already throwing up some strange bedfellows and none more stranger than the firebrand former Labour and Respect MP and the Brexit Party. Mr Galloway took to Twitter to explain his position after seeing the Labour list of candidates for the EU elections. He said: “Given the nature of Labour’s Euro-fanatic candidates list and the crucial juncture we have reached in the fight for the full implementation of the #Brexit referendum result and for one-time only I will be supporting Nigel Farage in next months elections. 

“The Labour 5th Column has utterly destroyed the party’s prospects in the Euro-Elections. We must hope they haven’t done so in real Elections.”

An opinion poll yesterday revealed the new Brexit Party has shot into the lead despite only being launched last week.

The Brexit Party is on 27 percent ahead of Labour on 22 percent and the Conservatives on 15 percent

Mr Galloway said: “The election on May 23 is about ONE thing only. #Brexit The broken Tory Party and the Labour 5th columnists who have tried to abort the referendum result must be stopped in their tracks. That’s all.”

Fellow left-wing Brexiteers also promised to vote for their former political enemy Nigel Farage. 

Simon Middleton said: “I totally agree with you Mr Galloway. Next month’s elections are about Brexit, pure and simple. 

“I am from a Socialist background and I will be voting for Nigel Farage aand the new  Brexit Party “

Labour announced its current crop of MEPs have been given preferential treatment when it comes to who will contest the European elections.

As it stands 16 of the 20 Labour MEPs will be standing again for the party on May 23.
