The Brexit Party are doing really well in the polls. I just hope they do as well in the election.
I think their slogan should be "Tell them again".
I would like to see a clean sweep of Brexiteers but I know that is not going to happen.
I have sent off my postal vote.

What can they do though? The EU has been clear the deal on the table is the only deal on offer. MEPs can’t make no deal happen. Whatever happens in Brussels, it’s the MPs at Westminster who have to decide and agree what happens in October which won’t be influenced by whomever we end up with as MEPs. Or are you hoping it makes a GE more likely?

So which bits of the manifesto really swayed your choice?
Which of the fishing ports is he going to revitalise first?

bellinisurge Mon 13-May-19 11:38:18

Let's tell them again we don't give a shit about GFA! Hurray!

themueslicamel Mon 13-May-19 11:52:12

OP, I am with you as do many are.

Westminster has it coming.

So where is your list of great things the Brexit party are going to achieve?
You do realise that actually leaving is the START of massive problems as there will be no legally binding trade deals written with anybody. So far it is all 'warm words' and no concrete plan.

This is a puzzle - the EU is supposed to be run by unelected bureaucrats, so does it matter that the Brexit party is doing well in the opinion polls. They probably won't bother to turn up if they do get elected.

Cobblersandhogwash Mon 13-May-19 12:23:26

That EU is a right dictatorship. And you even get to vote for your representative. 🙄

I would never vote for someone who didn't have a clear manifesto though. I'm not dumb.

Coppersulphate Mon 13-May-19 12:37:21

The Remainers in Parliament will get the message that the majority of people in this country want to leave the EU.
I realise this is not popular on MN which is heavily Remain but the trouble is the MPs are Remain and the people want to Leave.
Let's wait and see what the election brings.

the people want to Leave

You’re using present tense there. No opinion poll shows people want to leave now. Do you think it’s sensible to throw your full support behind a political party that refuses to state who funds it?

PortiaCastis Mon 13-May-19 12:43:45

A single issue party other than stupid bloody brexit what are their policies?

bellinisurge Mon 13-May-19 12:44:04

I got my Brexshit Party thing through the post. Hurray! Because I was running out of toilet paper.

AudacityOfHope Mon 13-May-19 12:46:19

The majority don't want to leave the EU, not in any poll I've seen in, I don't know, over a year.

You may want to commit economic and cultural suicide but at least don't pretend you're upholding the view of the nation or anything else you think sounds noble.

Theworldisfullofgs Mon 13-May-19 12:49:17

Westminter has it coming

But does the rest of the country?

PortiaCastis Mon 13-May-19 12:50:42

The people want to leave
No I don't you don't speak for me or my dd who has gained the vote since the referendum, she can see the damage brexshit will do to business and service industries at her young age

PortiaCastis Mon 13-May-19 12:51:47

What exactly does Westminster have coming?

Peregrina Mon 13-May-19 12:57:22

I think you could say that the Tory party has it coming.
Is that a pity for Theresa May? Do I start weeping crocodile tears? Her first love appears to be the Tory party, she's accommodated the Brexiters as much as she is able to, and all she is likely to get is the destruction of the party that she is dedicated to.

AudacityOfHope Mon 13-May-19 12:57:29

@PortiaCastis it's the delightful threatening tone the Brexiteers like to take, in full knowledge that a woman just like us who was an MP, was gunned down in the street a couple of years ago by one of them.

In the knowledge that Anna Soubry sometimes can't go home and that Jess Phillips is subject to constant rape threats.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Mon 13-May-19 12:57:38

and the people want to Leave.

It’s really bloody difficult to take and leavers seriously when you start mindlessly spouting this shit. Leaving aside the legality of the referendum result, very nearly half the people don’t want to leave and the ref was nearly 3 years ago, so it’s not necessarily true at this point that it is what the people want.

Unless you can come up with some well considered arguments why we should be leaving rather than soundbite politics, you’re not going to get that clean sweep you asked for.

Peregrina Mon 13-May-19 13:02:31

was gunned down in the street a couple of years ago by one of them.

And their pal Farage, who they can't get enough of, had the gall to say that the Brexit vote was achieved 'without a shot being fired'. Don't deny it Leavers, that is what he said. He also extolled the virtues of Norway, he also wants an insurance based NHS - all stuff that he is trying to make you forget now. The man is a charlatan, but if you want to vote for a charlatan that is your right, it's a democracy after all.

{MPs are Remain and the people want to Leave.}
So, yet again, what are your plans for when you have left?
Where are you going to? Have you packed your sandwiches yet?

SilentSister Mon 13-May-19 13:03:28

Looking at the polls in the link below, I would say that the country is still as equally split on what it wants as it was in the original referendum. Every poll, however the question is asked, is too close to call.

Agreed Audacity
Thing is those uneducated lowlifes who threaten women are worshipped by some, but down here in Cornwall that abusive twat Benjamin was left with no uncertainty how we felt last week.

Bearbehind Mon 13-May-19 13:12:38

Rejoice because the man who told you it would all be fine before is saying the same thing 3 years on and you don’t even think to question that or anything that’s happened in between?

Hardly cause for celebration is it?

DontMakeMeShushYou Mon 13-May-19 13:18:22

the trouble is the MPs are Remain and the people want to Leave.

So remind me again how electing Brexit Party MEPs will solve this conundrum.
