That lets me off then

Nigel Farage returns: ‘Our Brexit Party candidates will be household names from all walks of life’

According to one email I’ve had they got 1,100 applications.

  1. “In a statement on Saturday night, Mrs May said there was a “stark choice” of either leaving the European Union with a deal or not leaving at all.”

    I suggest the Brexit party put that on their election posters (if needed)

  2. Even assuming there remained a point in voting, what point is there in becoming a bristle on a false moustache?

  3. Is the Brexit Party a serious thing?

    Virtual absence from social media, not turning up to by elections, not sure how many candidates they’ll have in the locals… And they’ll be competing for votes and seats with Ukip if, as expected, the Euros go ahead.

    Some leavers will not be comfortable with Ukip transmogrifying into the electoral wing of the EDL but I’m sure there are plenty of protest voters who won’t know, won’t care or won’t mind.

  4. The “May choice” may become the colloquial name for a false dichotomy.

    A deal means not leaving at all. Does she think people don’t realize this? Your choices are to stay in or to not leave. Your choice.

  5. …Ukip transmogrifying into the electoral wing of the EDL…

    Indirectly, that has an appeal. I can’t think of a stronger “fuck you” to the establishment – one they will not just hear but understand and fear.

    Nigel’s effort sounds like a clown show of minor celebs. We’ve already got that.

  6. There’s still a reasonable chance the remainer bastards’ schemes will fail and we’ll come out this week.

    If the Tories can immediately ditch May (call the Paras for more target practice if necessary), install a true Brexiteer government and stave off an election until scheduled, the country might be saved.

    That’s what the pixies at the bottom of the garden told me, anyway.

  7. A second-best scenario, after a nice clean WTO exit ASAP, is that May’s Surrender is signed – then as soon as the ink is dry and we have officially “left the EU”, May is pushed out and Boris or Raab rips up the deal. I’m sure they could find a pretext without even trying.

  8. MyBurningEars, they’re only fixed on the EDL history of Stephen Lennon because the media always say “former leader” whenever they mention him. They are forcing the public to remember that by repeating it all the time. The phrase “people change” is used many times to excuse the history of some well like (by the left) politician or celebrity. But for some reason it’s never used for Stephen. As for the history of the EDL, it was non-racist and though maybe violent that was only when they kicked the real nazis and trouble makers out. As for Stephen’s current status, he’s an investigative citizen journalist not a thug the media make him out to be. It’s only because the establishment keep kot-towing to the Islamists that he is seen as a problem by them,

  9. “Virtual absence from social media, not turning up to by elections, not sure how many candidates they’ll have in the locals… And they’ll be competing for votes and seats with Ukip if, as expected, the Euros go ahead.”

    I’m not sure they really need to. Everyone knows what Farage and parties like UKIP and Brexit stand for, and everyone is using their votes to send a signal to Westminster. Spending money on campaigning makes very little difference. The extra vote shift per £10K you spend is miniscule.

    UKIP trebled their share of the vote in Newport West without, as far as I can tell, doing much. Their national polling is 7%, up from 3%, again, without much effort.

    Also, I don’t blame Farage if he’s only doing this to get a cosy sinecure in the EP. The bloke deserves it.

  10. “Some leavers will not be comfortable with Ukip transmogrifying into the electoral wing of the EDL but I’m sure there are plenty of protest voters who won’t know, won’t care or won’t mind.”

    I don’t care. UKIP won’t win where i live anyway. All I want is the realistic goal of them getting more votes than the Labour majority (this is more Labour Guardian reader than Labour coal mining area), and then, there might be some Conservative party chaos if they turn on the local “no no deal” MP.

  11. I just want to watch the Establishment (metaphorically) burn.

    I’d find some nice words for the Devil if he stood in my constituency.

    There must be consequences for denying Democracy. This is true on any issues, but infinitely more so on the biggest vote in British history.

  12. The Brixit Party needs to leave its debut until the latest possible moment. It has one thing to offer & everyone already knows about. Brexit. As soon as its candidates are known & it opens its official mouth the Remainer media will start chewing on it, egged on by the politicians. It has nothing to gain & can only lose.

  13. @bloke in Wales
    Isn’t the point of the WA and the backstop in particular that it makes it near impossible for the next leader or govt. to rip it up which seems like why May is so determined to push it through before she goes.
    She knows that any Brexit supporting leader after her is screwed, it’s a poison pill for those usurping her

  14. Only to cowards. It would toilet paper in a week were I PM. And part of that would be the Treason Trials of the FFC and her gang. Not every MP would get a Treason trial but every one not 100% loyal to Brexit from the start–which is most–inc any rubberspines like Johnson and JRM–would lose a years wages/expenses and houseflips etc over their treachery. They would all be obliged to resign –so the fine would come out of money they have already had.

    The SCS would get the treatment I have often suggested.

  15. Off topic Tim (except for the heading), but could this nonsense technically even cover a site like yours:

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/04/07/duty-care-new-rules-will-mean-tech-firms/

    “The White Paper, published today, says any tech firm, big or small, that allows the “sharing” of content or “interaction” between users will be subject to the duty of care and face harsh sanctions if they breach it.”

    “It will also draw up legally-enforced codes of practice spelling out what tech firms need to do to protect users from … harassment, disinformation”

    If they came back, would you have to carefully monitor or censor reprobates like DBC or Arnald?
