The chairman of Canterbury Ukip says the party must reignite its efforts to help enforce a full exit from the EU.
Richard West is rallying support following the resignation on Sunday of Brexit secretary David Davis in protest at the Prime Minister's proposal for a compromise arrangement with the European Union.
It was quickly followed on Monday by the resignation of arch Brexiteer and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, leaving Mrs May's government in disarray.
Mr West says the negotiations are fast becoming a "pigs breakfast" and not the full Brexit the public voted for in the 2016 referendum.
"Brexit really must mean a full English Brexit," he said. "Only Ukip will keep and deliver the promises made by the British government and give back freedom to the British people.
He predicts that an imminent general election is becoming increasingly likely and urges voters to turn to Ukip to help win 20 parliamentary seats to help secure the full departure from the EU.
He said: "Ukip are the only political party that promises that Brexit really will mean Brexit, no matter what Prime Minister Theresa May says to the European Union.
"The British people voted to get their freedom back. Theresa May needs to know they will not stand and do nothing but fight back before allowing members of parliament not to carry out the will of the British people.
"No deal with the European Union is better than a bad deal. The British people do not want to make any payment to the EU. Great Britain must be allowed to make its own trade deals, make our migration policy and make our own laws, without compromises.
"World Trade Organisation terms or a comprehensive free trade agreement for goods and services are needed if countries are to successfully do business with the fifth largest economy in the world."
Canterbury and Whitstable MP Rose Duffield was quick to criticise the chaos in the Cabinet.
"With Boris Johnson and David Davis resigning from the Cabinet, it is clear that Theresa May can’t even win over her own party in supporting her version of Brexit, never mind winning the hearts and minds of the British people," she said.
Herne Bay MP Sir Roger Gale says Mr Davis and Mr Johnson should have stepped down before appearing to support the PM's Brexit agreement.
"One can only speculate why they didn't walk before Chequers," he said. "I would have thought, if they felt that strongly, they would have told the Prime Minister on Friday they couldn't agree to it.
"I believe the Prime Minister is head and shoulders above the pig meat biting at her ankles. All the ill-informed say 'why we can't we leave now and walk away', but that would not be in Great Britain's interests. She has been consistently undermined by those on the hard right and hard left during her negotiating endeavours.
"I worked on both of David Davis's leadership campaigns, he's a personal friend and I worked on his by-election campaign - and I'm disappointed. Having been the man responsible for the negotiations for 18 months, he can't say he's got a clean pair of hands. He should have stayed in there and fought the corner. He is a serial resigner, we need to remember that.
"It's very much in the national interest that Boris Johnson has been replaced by a foreign secretary who has the gravitas and dignity to do the job and repair the damage that's probably been done to our foreign service.
"I wouldn't support David Davis if he mounted a leadership bid, but he made it absolutely plain he isn't going to stand.
"I wouldn't support Boris before hell freezes over. I will not support any person who seeks to undermine the Prime Minister.
"Given the tone of the 1922 Committee last night, I think it would be highly unlikely for there to be a coup. A very clear message was sent out from there that any aspirant leader would be wasting their time.
"The person who will be the next leader of the party will take part in a leadership contest when Theresa May chooses to retire or resign of her own volition. Anyone else will simply fragment the party, that would lead to a general election, which will lead to the election of Jeremy Corbyn and a continuation of our membership of all the common trade policies."
On whispers that Gove could be about to walk too, he added on Tuesday: "I think that's highly unlikely. I spoke to him last night and he gave no indication of that at the time - neither of course did any of the others, though."
