'Nigel Farage today revealed he will stand to be an MP - calling it 'his duty' - as his Brexit Party looks set to thrash the Tories into fifth place in the upcoming EU elections.
The former UKIP leader also admitted he would be willing to prop up the next Conservative leader to make them Prime Minister in the event of a hung Parliament - but only if they agree to leave the EU with No Deal on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms.
He told LBC today: 'I'm going to have to [stand] of course. It's a duty. We cannot ever allow again a great democratic exercise like this to be railroaded aside by career politicians of the Labour and Tory parties'.
Mr Farage, who last stood in South Thanet in 2015 but lost to the Tories -his seventh failed attempt at getting into Parliament - has not said the constituency he would target.
But perhaps significantly he was speaking today during a visit to Pontefract, West Yorkshire, part of Labour MP Yvette Cooper's constituency, where 70 per cent voted to leave the EU and he said Jeremy Corbyn's party 'is vulnerable in the most extraordinary way'.
Asked whether he'd do a deal with the Tories if elected, he said: 'If we can save £39billion, come out of the Customs Union, come out of the Single Market, come out of the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and be a genuinely independent, self-governing democracy that can choose its own future, I’d do a deal with the devil to get that'.
The Brexit Party is racing ahead with a predicted 34 per cent of the vote on May 23 - but Theresa May's Conservatives are heading for just 10 per cent, a new YouGov survey has found.
This would put the Prime Minister's party in fifth place behind the Greens and the Liberal Democrats, who were on 15 per cent and 11 per cent respectively.'
