Brexit could win the 2018 General Election in a landslide, a leading political strategist has predicted.

In a wide-ranging interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Prof. David Cameron said Brexit would be the “big winner” of the General Election, adding that he believed his party would be able to hold the balance of power.

He said the UK was “on the brink” of a second referendum on Brexit, which he said was “very important” for the future of the EU and its member states.

“We’ve got to get through this period of uncertainty and it will be very important for us,” he said.

“We’ve done everything we possibly can to get the Brexit deal through and the EU has done its job.”

“We have a chance of winning this election,” he added.

The general election will take place in 2021, and Mr Cameron will lead the Conservatives.

Theresa May, the UK’s prime minister, is also expected to lose the Conservative leadership race, after being forced to quit after the party’s election manifesto was widely condemned for being too far-left.

The General Election will be held on May 8, 2020.
