    Pfft, the only reason we've not laughed his trollish ass out of the forum because the EU implemented a silly 2 year timeframe onto the whole process. That means Dribs gets 2 years of shitposting unimpeded, because nobody can technically predict the future accurately enough to prove to him with the actual impact of future reality how braindead his whole shtick is. Like, painfully stupidly braindead. And as long as we say "Well, just wait and you'll see.." the longer he goes on with his trolling.

    Yeah.... They're as ignorant as May was. Perhaps they'll ask for a 3 year extension to broker a new deal? ;D

    He'll probably ignore it and move on to the next super sure 100% accurate prediction or try spin it in some hilarious way. I'm hoping for the spin, honestly.

    Pretty much. Our democracy is a bit (lol) fucked and there isn't actually a great deal of connect between why one votes the way one does (just being neutral, saying 'you' there made it seem personal) in the ballot box and what happens in Westminster (majority feeling that their vote is pointless in a safe seat for one party or voting tactially - who do I want to NOT win) and yet "muh sovereignty" was waved about like a flag by racist fucks trying to pretend they aren't racist fucks. Could see through it in the blink of an eye, would have been a bit more subtle if they'd claimed they were all AV voters feeling disenfranchised by the 2010 result... but none of them said that they just said "People in Europe shouldn't get to say what happens in the UK" like people in the UK have much say themselves.

    Well, they did it once more. They managed to find someone else to blame...

    A Brexit Party insider has blamed the party’s loss in the Peterborough by-election on Labour’s popularity among Pakistani voters.
    Bad Pakistani!

    The irony is, them leaving the EU won't change anything about those bad Pakistanis.

    Also funny, can Pakistani just vote like that? Don't they have to be British citizens to begin with? In which case, aren't they British instead of Pakistani? So many questions...

    Very interesting split on the vote share, though a low turnout allows for margin of error.

    Labour's vote share went down, the Conservatives share plummeted, in favour of mostly the BrP. LDs picked up both an increase of votes and vote share.

    Most interestingly there were 1,198 votes split across candidates for parties and independents who didn't run in 2017, other than the BrP.

    That's 3.5% of the total vote where the majority was just 683. UKIP alone was 400 votes, the Christian Peoples and English Democrats were another 300, the BrP lost votes to these also rans that would have seen them take the seat.

    Amazed there's still UKIP voters at all in this day and age.

    Yeah it's really interesting. Corbyn is clamouring for a general election (as always). Him and Labour may be more unpopular than ever before but if BrexitParty and Conservatives are splitting the rest of the vote like this everywhere then it really works to his favour. We could end up with Conservatives and Brexit having substantially over 50% of the vote between them, but Corbyn just walking in because the vote's so split in each region he takes all the seats.

    I'm curious what Farrages next move is going to be. I can't stand him but he's not a total idiot, he's not going to just hand the election to Corbyn gift wrapped.

    How's Brexit party "Far Right"? They only have the one policy and that's a much more complex issue than the usual left-right drama.

    If they'd stop fucking about and declare their intent regarding brexit instead of sitting on the fence they would probably win the next GE. I liked Corbyn at first, he appeared to want to move away from all this shitty childish squabbling that makes our parliament look like a complete fucking joke, but of course it turns out that he's just a liability.

    I'm probably going to vote Labour at the next GE simply because i'm in a seat that has switched between Labour and Cons for the last 80 years and it's been red since 1997,nobody else has a chance. Im not voting FOR Labour, i'm voting AGAINST the Conservatives.

    Just listen to Farage himself. Getting rid of the NHS and introducing insurance companies is not a policy? Not to mention this riducously racist statement by itself.. or you know, the people leading the party.

    lol Yeah our elections have basically become voting against what you don't want. I'm pretty sure the last GE might as well have just been "NOT CORBYN" vs "NOT MAY". Basic campfire could have beaten both of those idiots.

    Looks like Farage is still toxic to any election that isn't for the EU. Which is ironic to a degree that isn't measurable with conventional instruments!
    Of course we won dumbo :-

    Labour = Don't know/care about Brexit = 10484
    Brexit = Leave position = 9801
    Conservative = Leave position = 7243
    Lib Dem = Remain position = 4159
    Greens = Save the Whales = 1035
    UKIP = Leave position = 400

    So in the round....

    Pro Brexit leave = 17444 versus 4159 for remain.

    Four times as many people voted for leave as remain and the only clear message out of this by-election is Vote Tory Get Corbyn. The electorate will have learnt that as a valuable lesson yesterday. Better they did that as a one off than at a General Election....

    Tell me how on earth can you spin this as a win for remain? As an opener may I suggest you start with and use "Once upon a time...."? I'll provide the "happily ever after" ending...

    You may or may not be interested in what our Nigel has to say and as he just emailed me I'll share it with you...

    "Peterborough was 201st on the Brexit Party’s list of potentially winnable Westminster seats. If we can come so close there, then no Labour or Tory seat is safe any longer."

    "We have scared the life out of the establishment parties. The latest YouGov poll already puts us in the lead nationally, six points ahead of the rest.

    Where next for the Brexit Party? Come to our The Big Vision national rally at the NEC Birmingham on Sunday 30th June."


    A little perspective don't you think? Still think you are winning remainers?

    An amusing timeline of Farage's night in Peterborough
    By contrast Nigel Farage is here and hid in the gents to avoid interviews.
    After Richard Tice remonstrated with police, the toilet is now cordoned off.


    Nigel’s left.

    Looks like the Ford executives were not joking, when they said, that if brexit hurts or threatens their profits they would close UK Plants.
    The Bridgend Plant is to close in 2020. It employs 1,700.
