Is Farage planing a come back

Recommended Posts

He'd better be planning something!  Don't like the bloke but he is needed right now, in the absence of anyone better to lead the Leave campaign, people are beginning to realize it didn't end with the referendum vote. Has he got any big-money sponsors to fund a new party? UKIP have killed themselves off IMO.

Looks like Henry Bolton's days are numbered. I'd like to see a new single issue Leave party formed with a constitution to do one thing only - leave the EU on WTO terms then immediately call a new general election and disband itself.

Sounds like the anti EU side of British politics is being purposely dismantled, without UKIP we are surely about 90% remain in our active politicians/parties - as such the Tories have nothing to fear by veering the other way in the Brexit negotiations.

Easy to dismiss them but UKIP could be a force, they're the biggest party when on a straight ballot as the previous EU elections in 2014 shown.

Unfortunately they're just not bothered or stable enough locally. They did have a pretty decent councillor base on which to build momentum and fight from there - but in the elections I've seen this year, they're not even on the ballots. They'll always be in the wilderness if they dip in and out when they feel like it.

As long as the eu exists there'll always be a political force within the UK wanting to remain or join so there'll always be a justification for an independence party.  I think it was a big mistake for UKIP to effectively dip out after the referendum.

On the other hand it did give the Brexit negotiators enough rope to show their hand and their true colours in the negotiations.

So, Henry Bolton has announced that he is staying as UKIP leader

Despite all the resignations

His plan to keep power is to call upon all Leave Campaigns over the next month to unite to pressure Government to deliver Brexit.

Is he delusional and having a breakdown ?

Bit tinfoilhattish but for some reason it was the first thing that popped into my mind when this story came up.

I did wonder that. In my experience attractive 25 year old blondes do not generally take much interest in right wing politics or their middle-aged male exponents. It's not as if he was a genuinely powerful or high status/rich male either.

Nope. The fact that he got voted in a short leader, despite sounding like a LibLabCon candidate, aroused suspicions of sabotage.

Any party that has the Hamiltons in it is a joke.

I hope Banks Kassmam and Farage get their skates on with something new.

UKIP is finished.

Its full of toxic hoons and nutters.

They've got 2 years.

Yes that's what I was thinking. 

Think Farage is interviewing him on lbc at 7.

he gave him a mild roasting. 

I thought Nigel seemed most interested in the fact that Bolton was going to come up with a new constitution within 4 weeks, not what Nigel wants perhaps.

It's precisely what I thought when I saw them ... either that or she was just determined to get her 10k from selling  a kiss-and-tell story and 15 minutes of fame...

Nige hates the UKIP NEC (Hamiltons etc), so if Bolton is gonna take them on in an EGM, then he may go easy on him for the time being.

If Kassam Banks and Farage get their shit together they will finish UKIP in 6 months flat. Kassam is the guy Brexiteers should pin their hopes on i think. He's mustard. And he's Asian.

Absolute Kryptonite for the MSM soul.

      Channel 4 have an upcoming feature length "movie" starring Benedict Cumberbatch about the referendum.
      Any predictions on how good or bad it will be and which side it will portray as right/wrong?

      There is a danger of a second Referendum where Remain is made a Referenduman option, and the Leave vote split between two options, Deal or no Deal options.
      Unless transferable votes are used (or even if), even a minority of Remainers could win a second Referendum.
      This would tie the Government's hands to negotiate to Remain at any cost. This would be disastrous for the UK.
      Article 50 dictates that we leave on 29 March 2019.
      As this is an Article of a Treaty, it can only be set aside with the unanimous consent of all EU members at the highest level.
      It would only take one EU member to obstruct this to place the UK in an impossible position.
      If we petitioned to Remain, or extend time to negotiate a better deal, I am absoloutely certain that the EU would exploit this to the UK's extreme disadvantage.
      In particular, we would be obliged to join the Euro, as all new EU member states already are.
      Secondly, we would lose our EU rebate, which expires in 2021 anyway. It would not be renewed and we would probably be forced to increase our EU contributions on top of that.
      Additionally, pressure could be exerted by Ireland and Spain relating to the borders or status of NI and Gibraltar.
      The UK's nuclear deterrent could come under the control of an EU-wide military force, and so we could lose overall control of our deterrent. This would conflict with NATO obligations and could paralyze our military options.
      I think we still have vetos on certain other EU policies, which we would be forced to surrender.
      I hear no politicians or journalists telling us this.
      We may be sleepwalking into a disaster.
      The one hope is that with our current political chaos, it will be impossible to organse a second Referendum in time to halt our Leaving.
      Ironically, the longer the disasterous Treason May hangs on, the less likely a Second Referendum to Remain will take place.
      Our best hope now is we stay with this useless crone and grit our teeth for Leaving without a deal - a 'Hard Brexit'. The opportunity for a good deal has been wasted thorugh her utter incompetence.
      I see little prospect of the EU improving the terms for our Leaving. There is little incentive for them to do so.
      After Leaving,  Article 49 would define the process for rejoining and the implications (like joining the Euro) would have to be made clearer to the public.
      TLDR; We are either badly fucked, or really totally fucked.

      Have decided to boost my larder with extra dried stuff (well stocked with canned) after the weekends scareganda in the media so I can last six weeks without having to fight the local retards in the supermarket for basics.
      Have also added some bagged popcorn to the list as comfort food while I watch the mayhem of the fuckwitts.
