Now UKIP is defunct as we are (sadly) en route to independence AIBU to fear 'people's champion' Farage will defect to the conservatives and head for leadership?!
I see a terrifying future of Trump, Farage and the rise of the the far right across Europe confusedsad

Yes YABU

(See multiple other threads. But the main point is his ill health)

RJnomore1 Fri 24-Jun-16 21:09:31

Can you honestly see the Tory party electing farage as leader?

oldharrysgame Fri 24-Jun-16 21:13:09

He won't.

Akire Fri 24-Jun-16 21:14:13

He never managed to get himself elected as MP after the fifth or so attempt so unlikely!

Whatslovegottodo Fri 24-Jun-16 21:16:15

I am so happy to hear IABU. Phew, not thinking straight today.
grin

Unfortunately the current options are Boris buffoon Johnson, Michael fuck eductation Gove and Teresa fuck the human rights convention May so I'm not entirely sure that's better...

Whatslovegottodo Fri 24-Jun-16 21:27:22

No they are all terrifying sad

YABU. One of the few benefits of Brexit is 22 UKIP MEPs being out of a job by 2020.

Oh God, well the best I'm hoping for is that the Labour party quickly sorts out their leadership issues, hopefully choosing a better leader (I like JC but he has been ineffectual in the leadership role and can't win a general election), and that we have a general election called sooner rather than later. I wonder if we'd get the Tory party out of office in such a scenario?

YANBU although he is more likely to lead Labour than Tory. Look at the Leave demographic. It's the reason why Corbyn is under threat.

carabos Fri 24-Jun-16 22:30:58

Not. A. Chance.

WallisSimpson11 Fri 24-Jun-16 22:32:07

That would be like having Satan (Nigel Farage) and Judas Iscariot (Boris)
Lucifer (Michael Gove) and then you think of Trump and Lepen and you just want to go drown in the Thames. God help us sad

No, Farage isn't posh enough for PM, and didn't go to the right school, he only went to Dulwich College.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 24-Jun-16 23:19:32

Excuse my thickness in asking this question, but. How the hell can NF become. If he isn't even part of the Tory party. I don't understand.

GuiltyPleasure Fri 24-Jun-16 23:20:54

Don't worry, he's probably thinking he won't need the menial step of an elected government role judging by the disturbing amount of people on my FB feed who think he's worthy of immediate knighthood hmm

QueefRichards Fri 24-Jun-16 23:25:00

I see him disbanding UKIP, rejoining the Tories and gaining a top position in Boris' cabinet. Or, worse case scenario, joins the Tories, has a Corbyn-like surge of support, and becomes PM.

travailtotravel Fri 24-Jun-16 23:35:22

You have to be an MP to be PM. He's not.

RoseDeGambrinus Fri 24-Jun-16 23:38:58

No it will probably be Boris who doesn't even believe in Brexit, he fucked this country up purely to further his personal ambition.

LineyReborn Fri 24-Jun-16 23:41:33

Ffs. This is the kind of 'informed critical thinking' that got us in this mess.

midsomermurderess Fri 24-Jun-16 23:42:59

He isn't even an MP.

originalmavis Fri 24-Jun-16 23:43:49

Nooooooooo not buffoon bill. God, Boris and Donald what a fucking pair. When's the next space mission?

midsomermurderess Fri 24-Jun-16 23:44:38

Lineyreborn, just what I was thinking.

acasualobserver Fri 24-Jun-16 23:46:59

Won't happen for reasons given above. But don't bet on UKIP being defunct.
