Ms Widdecombe was elected as an MEP for the Brexit Party in the South West of England as both the Tories and Labour suffered humiliating defeats in this year’s European elections. On the two-party system, she said: “I am not yet ready to say this is definitely the end but if they don’t deliver Brexit I genuinely believe it is the end.” Ms Widdecombe added the result reaffirmed the 2016 referendum and warned that if there was a general election the main parties would face “carnage”.
The former Conservative MP said she heard the “howl of duty” to return to front-line politics after nine years out.
On Sunday she won a seat for the Brexit Party in the South West, where the overall vote share actually tipped in favour of remain in 2016.
She said: “I am very pleased to have been elected, not for me, but the Brexit Party.
“We have only been around six weeks and we have topped the polls decisively.
“There was only one reason ever to vote for the Brexit Party and that was to get Brexit.”
“Tonight the nation has sent another message to Westminster, which says very clearly, ‘We want to leave’.
“We did that in 2016 and we are telling you again. My message to Westminster is, ‘Get us Brexit by October 31 or face what we have done tonight in a General Election’.”
The Brexit Party MEP recently left her rally crowd in stitches when she mocked Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn as she enacted the conversation between the two leaders during their cross-party Brexit talks.
Last night Ms Widdecombe said: “Whoever is the next Prime Minister has got to give us a clear, firm, undisputed Brexit.
“That is the mission of that Prime Minister and any Prime Minister who does not deliver that is going to kill off the Conservative Party.”
She said: “It is a miserable business watching today’s Conservative Party. I can’t look at that, that is their problem.
“What I have got to look at is delivering Brexit – the will of the British people.
“That is this party’s mission and that is what we are going to accomplish and I cannot waste time worrying about what the other parties are doing.”
“I am not fearful now that Brexit won’t happen, I would have been a couple of months ago, particularly when Mrs May was offering every last concession to Labour.
“But that abject surrender failed and so I am now quite confident that after the message that has gone out tonight that should at last focus minds in Westminster.”
