    Hey we could instead show Europe we're actually not as bad as our negotiating has shown and instead find an uninhabited island linked to one of our overseas territories. Maybe Pitcairn or South Georgia islands. Give them 28k modems too so at least we can allow them some Internet even if it is painfully slow.

    I mean win for us in mainland UK as they're not here. Win for Europe since they don't have to deal with them and also win for them as they're far away from Europe they despise so much. Hell they might even vote dribbles as island leader.

    No, I mean that there are intellectual property rights issues in terms of reusing their logos and the domain name. I would expect the website to continue but it will have to change its domain name to differentiate it from the political party and I would not be surprised if they have to stop reusing their logos.

    To be honest it highlights the amateur nature of Farage and his followers that they did not claim the domain name in the first place or register their claim on the name once they found out it had already been registered prior to launching their site.

    Intellectual property rights? To what, the name "The Brexit Party"?

    The logo icon with the arrow and the combination of font in it is pretty much the only thing that I would even remotely consider distinguishable enough to have a copyright (apart from text, which isn't in contention here). Leaving aside that LedByDonkeys clearly gets artistic license because it's obviously a satirical approach, if they know what they're doing, they'll just ride it out until the first cease and desist letter arrives, at which point they can still change it.

    Until then... this is mega publicity.

    I am going to reiterate on something.

    Farcical alt-right media personas are a boon, not a bane to the parliament. They strip the alt-right of legitimacy in the eyes of soft eurosceptics. Unlike Americans, Europeans are generally not attracted to histrionics. Le Pen is a vastly greater danger because she struggles and works to give nativist populists legitimacy and her and others have largely succeeded in that. Nothing could please me more than forcing her and others of her ilk to stand together with a dude who makes his dog do Nazi salutes.

    So, essentially you want Hitler to get into a position where he really could inflict damage so everyone can see him for what he is?

    Dangerous strategy. Last time we tried that, it really didn't work out all that well.

    Eh, they are not in a position to inflict damage. They can at most be a minority in parliament, a fractious minority that will not be able to stand united on the long term. And what I want is them to be as ridiculous as they can in front of everyone.

    Economic downturn pushes people to the extremes. Not random figureheads, all those clowns do is channel their feelings.

    Mostly because they promise to solve their financial woes by demanding effort from everyone but their target demographic. If you are on the left, it is the wealthy middle class and business owners, if you are on the right its the leeching migrants.

    Both groups are really successful at it cause beyond listening to their anger and frustrations and even feeding more causes into it that suit that, regardless of how real it is or not. They offer aid, aid in the form of day to day necessities.

    Christian democrats are in my opinion at least in Europe the biggest culprit why the extremes are now becoming as large as they are, they constantly struggled with their identity and constantly swapped from centre-left to centre-right when it suited them electorally. And they flip flopped so often that they lost credibility with a large group of the population and i doubt they attract any young voters at this point.

    Bit off topic but considering Hitler was being brought into this.

    Todays latest Yougov EU parliament voting intention polling

    Lab - 24%
    Con - 16%
    Brexit Party- 15%
    UKIP - 14%
    Lib Dem - 8%
    Green - 8%
    Change UK - 7%
    SNP/Plaid - 6%
    Other - 1%

    So in favour of Brexit 69%
    and in favour of Remain 31%

    https://twitter.com/YouGov/status/1116981750083801088

    It's looking like a landslide for brexit eurochums. For me choices, choices. Farages guy or Sargon of Akkad MEP for the funsies.

    Hmmmm help me out here guys, it's a tricky one.

    (and please don't try and tell me lies that the great leader of the Labour party has finally seen the light and that him and they are for remain.)
    Brexiteers are the new remainers. To remain outside of the EU.

  15. #17835
    Oh, I don't think they are for remain (well many of the MPs are) but they are also not batshit lunatics that intend to make a mess of the EP, so they are quite welcome. All in all that little melody about all Labour and Cons voters must be for Brexit because the parties don't want to revoke Art 50 is getting rather threadbare - any chance you could cook up a new fantasy over the holidays just to keep the amusement level above wet paint drying?

    Hmm. So lets think now. Everyone who is for Brexit....who are they going to vote for? For Labour, who are trying to water it down to the point where it isn't a proper Brexit (according to you)? For the Tories, that everyone that wants Brexit is accusing of selling out Brexit for the last three years?

    Nope. Everyone who still believes that Brexit absolutely has to happen is going to vote UKIP, or the new Brexit party. Which means you are barely hitting 30%. That looks to me like a very healthy lead for Remain. And the vote is nicely split between the two bat-shit crazy alternatives, so thanks for that.

    You've lost dribbles. The longer you keep hanging on to the fantasy that this is going to work out well for your hate the foreigners, fascist wet dream crazy vision of the future, the worse it is going to be when reality crashes home. Trust me, let it go now and you will feel so much better in the long run.

    And just to make this clear; in 2014 UKIP got 27% of the vote on their own. While Independence from Europe and the BNP got about 2.5% between them. Which suggests that you are polling at about the same level as you were back then. Which means that it won't be any worse for the EU than it is at the moment. About 30% useless morons that probably won't turn up for any votes. They've survived that for the past 5 years, I'm confident they will survive it for the next 5.
    When challenging a Kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.

    Given that the extremist brexitchums like Farage's lot and Sargon are only standing for Brexit Party and UKIP, that means they are in quite a significant minority.

    You are aware the EU elections aren't a "brexit referendum", aren't you?

    You read numbers like the devil reads the bible.

    I am seeing 29% for Brexit, 29% for Remain and the rest for the main parties that have no idea what they want.

    I'm not sure. Basically, it's not that much different from the result of the 2014 EP election. Other than that the Tories have lost more of the popular vote. But, note: their loss is also benefitting non Brexit parties as it is BP / UKIP.

    If the election is meant (as Farage and others are claiming) to be a proxy 2nd referendum / the chance to reject utterly the EU, then 29% combined for the BP / UKIP really isn't looking that promising.

    It'll be interesting to see what the turnout is. Already established that younger Remain voters need to reject apathy and counter the grey Leave vote.

    From a different perspective, the interesting thing will be: how many BP / UKIP will come back to the Tories in a GE vote to stop Labour from winning. 'Coz, atm Corbyn's gonna be in no. 10.

    Nice to see so many options on the ballot paper, though.
