THE Brexit Party has signed up over 100,000 registered supporters, giving them a strong claim to be the fastest growing political movement in the United Kingdom.

They are hoping to exceed the Tories, who are believed to have 124,000 members, before the European elections next week. On Wednesday the Brexit Party held a rally in Merthyr Tydfil, in the Welsh heartland of the Labour Party. Four members of the Welsh Assembly, who were elected under on a Ukip ticket, have defected to the Brexit Party.

It costs £25 to become a registered supporter of the Brexit Party, the same cost as a year’s membership of the Conservative Party.

The Labour Party has significantly more registered supporters, though the exact number is unconfirmed.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said: “I understand the Tory figures are 124,000, who knows this time next week we are going to be close to that.”

Former Ukip Welsh Assembly representatives Mark Reckless, Many Jones, David Rowlands and Caroline Jones defected to the Brexit Party.
