Tory candidates leave the conservatives for Nigel Farage's Brexit party – with no fewer than FORTY members of the European Parliament who have plans to fail amid fears of a & # 39; disaster & # 39; at the EU elections in May
- Former new leader of the Ukip leader could cause an exodus of Tory party members
- Twenty-six MPs have reportedly told Farage personally that they will vote for his party
- Even more said that they would switch from Tory candidates to the Brexit party
- TV star and regular party politicians said they belonged to the crowd
The conservatives are confronted with an exodus because allegedly 40 election candidates from the EU flow to the Brexit party.
Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage has reportedly been notified by 26 MPs who have personally said they will vote for his new group.
And even more would give up their Tory MEP campaigns for the Brexit party.

A TV star, high-profile charity figures, and regular party politicians are among the potential entrants, reports The Sun.
The news comes from speculations around Mark Francois, vice-president of the Eurosceptic European Research Group (ERG), who openly launched a & # 39; Eurosceptic attack & # 39; in the upcoming elections when he spoke with France 24.
As many as 56 percent of people who voted to leave the EU in 2016 say they will vote for Ukip or the Brexit party, while only 18 percent say they support the conservatives
Farage told the newspaper: & # 39; After the past three years, many conservative members of parliament, councilors and, indeed, members are asking about the usefulness of their party. & # 39;
He has placed a £ 1,000 bet on his party taking more seats in next month's elections than any other party.

Among those who have announced their candidacy for the Brexit party are Annunziata Rees-Mogg, sister of ERG president Jacob.
The Tories have also had to contend with the apostasy of MPs who believe that the UK should remain in the EU.
Anna Soubry is one of three conservatives who have left the party to form Change UK, formerly known as The Independent Group.
Speculation about who would join the Brexit party is because the support for the conservatives is at a low of six years.
Only two thirds of Tory voters in the 2017 general election said they would support the party again, and just over one third said they would vote for the Tories in the European elections, a You Gov poll said Times.
The Brexit party is tipped to hold 15% of the EU's vote, just a few days after its establishment.
Electoral Calculus polling says Nigel Farage's newly formed Brexit party would have the third largest share of the vote, with Labor ahead of the Tories if a general election were to be held today.
Arend pro-leave parties are the country's third largest political power with 14 percent of the votes if a general election was held today.
