Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has accused Number 10 insiders of offering bribes and inducements to try to persuade candidates not to run against Tory Party hopefuls.
Mr Farage said people inside Downing Street had been “ringing our candidates promising them jobs and Christmas baubles if they don’t stand”.
He told ITV News: “If that’s not political corruption, I don’t know what is.”
