    The new Brexit Party led by Nigel Farage is on course to win nearly 50 seats at the next general election after overtaking the Conservatives in a national poll for the first time

    They have been going for barely a month. You honestly think we have reached peak Brexit party? Give King Nigel and his merry men a few more weeks campaigning in Labour marginals...you'll see.

    They peaked, it's a fad, the people who arent voting for them now, fundementally disagrees with them.

    The irony in you participating in a EU election months after your "tick tock" stupidity, hilarious!

    Corrected, since Banks is paying Farage half a million pounds a year in expenses, and ex Revolutionary Communist Party members are handling most of the party's recruitment and day to day management.

    Add how Claire Fox thinks that it's ok that there's child porno on the internet...

    To be fair, most child porn is not actually child porn, its only simulated...

    God imagine voting for that.

    The more hilarious part is, that the MEPs sent to the EU can't do anything anyhow because current brexit date is prior to any vote they could participate in.

    So he's basically cheering for the waterboy to score some points in the upcoming games!

    Assuming 50% turnout in EU elections then we are talking about 7-8 million Brexit Party voters, when you use percentiles it sure does make shit look a lot scarier than it is.

    Not sure about the likelihood of a GE atm when current polling says the Cons would lose 50 seats and the Brexit Party would pick up 7. Seems like a great way to a second referendum since we would end up with a Labour Remain coalition and it's glaringly obvious what the price of cooperation would be for Remain parties lol.

    Also talks between Labour and Conservatives collapse

    Repeating the words of the MEP candidates you are choosing to vote for is going low?
    I think child porn videos themselves are illegal ... but actually most child porn is not child porn because it's simulated, I don't want to go into the details of that ... but the, what i'm trying to say is, and i'm really not defensive about this ... which is it's important to not constantly be threatened and terrorised into backing off from a free speech position.
    Imagine voting for someone who thinks cracking down on internet child porn is dangerous for free speech

    Yep, there we go then.

    Back to square one.

    So, will it now be indicative votes in the week beginning the 27th?

  12. #18952
    Unbelievable! I mean who saw this coming! What a couple of days for unexpected political bombshells first Boris Johnson shocks everyone by stating he'd run for the Tory party leadership and now this!

    Never a dull day... huh?!?

    Whatever next??? Nigel Farage has been receiving money from Arron Banks???

    Ann Widdecombe's contribution to the Brexit party manifesto seems like a certain vote winner

    The implication being that Farage receiving half a million pounds a year from someone currently under investigation by the UK National Crime Agency is a joke to you?

    The sad thing is that single issue voters like Dribbles will still vote for them, no matter what the manifesto says.

    That poster is being taken down and Led by Donkeys have issued an apology.

    Because homophobes seeing the poster might use it to justify hate attacks, not because the quote is in any way inaccurate or untrue.

    Absolutely, but really not much you can do about people like that at this point.



    Thankfully, they are gradually dying out

    Edit - more Brexit party manifesto snippets

    I know you get frustrated when we hurl insults at Brexiteer's but when you need to pull down your satirical messages because you just realised that there is a good chance that your targets don't understand you are making fun of them........

    I have no issue with highlighting the views of the people who wish to hold a political office however I think the choice to use the words "Target Gay People" was poor to say the least.

    To be honest I liked what LBD did with Farage's march but I think that poster went too far and they have done the right thing by removing it.

    That's not their manifesto though, that's ByDonkeys smear campaign.

    And generally, if that single-issue is strong enough, parties that represent it grow until it gets resolved, then rapidly drop - as happened with UKIP both before and after Brexit won; another similar example is probably continued AfD growth.

    Thank you, genius. We couldn't tell by the disclaimer at the bottom of the billboard that says "They didn't write a manifesto, so we did it for them".
