And he has also voiced his fears about a possible “surrender” by Mr Johnson. Brexit Party leader Mr Farage sent out a message to party activists confirming plans for a rally in Westminster on October 18 – the day before ‘Super Saturday’, which will see MPs sit at the weekend for the first time in almost 40 years. He said: “It’s a critical week in the battle for Brexit.
“On Thursday October 17th, EU leaders will meet to discuss Boris Johnson’s plan to reheat Mrs May’s dreadful deal.
“On Saturday October 19th, MPs will meet to debate the crisis – the first time that Parliament will sit on a Saturday since the Falklands War in 1982.
“The EU and the Remainer alliance are determined to delay Brexit again, beyond the October 31st deadline.
Come along and join our Brexit Extension Rebellion
“The Conservatives are too divided to deliver. So, what happens next?
“Join me in Westminster on Friday October 18th to hear The Brexit Party’s case for a Clean-Break Brexit as the only solution.
“We are clear that Brexit delayed = betrayed. Come along and join our Brexit Extension Rebellion.”

Mr Farage’s remarks are a play on words, referencing the Extension Rebellion, which is targeting cities around the world with direct action, including disruption at London City Airport yesterday, to deliver their message about climate change.
The former UKIP leader is campaigning for what he calls a clean break Brexit, fearing any deal struck between Mr Johnson and Brussels will keep Britain too closely tied to the bloc.

Writing in The Daily Telegraph yesterday, he said: “The fact is that were it not for the existence of the Brexit Party, the government’s current Brexit position would be considerably softer than it is today.”
Equally, without a “strong and engaged” Brexit party, there would be no such thing as a “meaningful Brexit”, he argued.
Mr Farage added: “I welcome the Prime Minister standing up to German bullying and showing genuine determination to get Brexit done. But I don’t trust his party, at all, on this issue.
“If Johnson goes for a clean Brexit manifesto, he will lose some votes to the Lib Dems. But he stands to gain many more from us, provided we are seen to cooperate.
“Winning a huge Brexit majority in parliament is the prize that awaits.
“If we work together to fight against the real enemy, Jeremy Corbyn and his bunch of wreckers, we would deliver a positive campaign with a decisive result.”
Mr Farage also took to social media in the wake of yesterday’s apparent breakthrough following a meeting between Mr Johnson and Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, which both praised as “constructive”.
He tweeted: “Varadkar says a new “treaty agreement” is possible by the end of October.
“We didn’t vote Brexit to leave one EU treaty and sign up to another.”
In a separate tweet later in the day, he added: “I don’t know what @BorisJohnson has given away, but he sounds very defensive. Let us hope that this is not a surrender.”
