Yes it would be a good idea for Farage to make sure Boris doesn't compromise so we end us up still entangled with the EU in some way (e.g. leaving the ECJ any say, or tied to EU rules...).

But in addition to that, there still could be a role for him in standing up for the people against the elite / Establishment classes in other important issues, where the latter are clearly still working for their 'woke' (the new word for 'PC' ?) obsessions far removed from the interests and concerns of the nation outside the metro-woke bubble. I think particularly the erosion of traditional liberties such as freedom of speech caused by vocal minorities being allowed to silence expression of views and exclude those who don't sufficiently support even promote their cause. This matter is getting worrying and serious. Resolving this could I think have far greater impact for the better on our democracy and freedom than even Brexit.
If Boris doesn’t sort this (and I doubt he will), and if Farage runs with this, this could be the threat to the Tories in 2024?

A GE would absolutely necessitate a pact / coalition the TBP. The Remain side would inevitably do the same among themselves. Under a Tory/TBP pact presumably TBP would fight midlands and northern Labour seats the Tories wouldn't win and Tories standing aside in those seats, and they not fighting seats of true Brexiteer Tories who support 'no deal' /WTO. Brecon shows that a split in the Brexit vote will allow Remainers in (there, the combined Conservative/TBP vote would have won a 3,000 majority). And I've heard that the Tories could be vulnerable to the LDs in the SW.

Boris would also need to commit to WTO /'no deal' to demonstrate he's really serious about implementing the referendum result and getting us a clean break from the EU, and stop trying to get a 'deal'. (Barnier has again said "no" to changes to the backstop, and the EU is unlikely to give us anything sufficiently different from Mrs May's WA anyway)

Either the above, or we get a Corbyn Marxist Govt, the economy wrecked, national security wrecked as Corbyn alienates our friends and befriends our enemies who want to attack us us, and we remain shackled to the EU.

Deselect.

Those who are determined to oppose a proper clean (WTO, 'no deal') Brexit want to stop Brexit altogether. And they must know that (although of course they don't say so). Because Parliament has rejected Mrs May's 'deal', and its passing of the Brady Amendment shows they might pass something without the Backstop. But the EU will not remove the Backstop. The EU will not renegotiate. So there is no way to leave the EU with a deal. Therefore the only way to leave the EU and to implement the referendum result is to leave with no deal/WTO.

If a GE is called for before 31 Oct, then the most sure way of implementing Brexit would surely be to do a pact with TBP (whatever Mr Cummings says) with them fighting midlands and northern Labour seats the Tories wouldn't win and Tories standing aside in those seats, and they not fighting seats of true Brexiteer Tories who support 'no deal' /WTO. The same might be said for a GE after 31 Oct, as they'll be bound to be attempts get us much as possible back within subjection to the EU, and even it has been suggested EU-phile MPs could revoke Brexit altogether and drag us back into the EU. It might be necessary to ensure genuine conservative / Brexit govts in the foreseeable future. Brecon shows that a split in the Brexit vote will allow Remainers in (there, the combined Conservative/TBP vote would have won a 3,000 majority). A pact with TBP therefore seems essential.
