That’s what I’m reading for the Brexit Party. Wonder if they’ll get > 50%

BP = no deal.


I’m not seeing a resounding majority for no deal here.

In a FPTP scenario Brexit Party are winning comfortably . In a majority scenario it's very close.

Corbyn lost to Lib Dems in his own constituency. On his birthday apparently :lol:

One of the few fun highlights on what will be a depressing evening. How Farage can convince that many people to vote for him, his party and/or his ideology is beyond depressing really.



Leave was quite clear.

Could this trigger a change in UK politics? It's been cons vs labour for 80 years now. Would like to see a shake up.

Basically the Brexit party has picked up the previous UKIP party votes, as well as a good share of the Conservative brexiteer votes.

Lib Dems, Greens and Change have taken votes from Labour (and perhaps some Conservatives) who strongly favour Remain.

If you add it all up then the Remain-side is stronger than it has been in other elections. Labour and especially Conservatives punished for having no clear message or policies.

The ladies on the BBC having a petty fight now.

What planet is Thornberry on when she says that the country isn't for a No Deal :?

Brexit Party is for a No Deal. Brexit Party is sweeping the floor with the competition. It's that simple.

That’s an insane reading of the results. But we’ve had the same with an actual leave win in 2016.

No spin there. But as it doesn't suit you and Bimbo I'm sure you will get on your warhorse all the same.

No. But I was suggesting SNP under 50 means no independence. You were presumably suggesting that no under 50 means remain.

Not seeing it. The country is in the same place now as it was 3 years ago.

To summarise:

- Farage wins in UK.
- Le Pen wins in France
- Salvini wins in Italy.
- Orban wins in Hungary.
- Right wing surging in Sweden.

FWIW Mary Banotti, an Irish MEP from 1984 - 2004 just reminisced on RTE that when she was first elected and took her seat she had a German MEP on one side of her and an Italian on the other. Both remembered scavanging through bins in the years after WW2 looking for stale bread and scraps to eat.

That is why the EU exists, and will always exist.

Well, lets have a look tomorrow.

You have to decide whether you include Labour as remain or Brexit, but it will be easy enough to add remain and leave and see if it matches the polls, which are nearly exclusively remain though not at levels where anyone clains the UK has "changed it's mind"
