This is getting worse

Let’s see if I have this clear. NF stands down PPCs in ALL Tory seats, inc. Remoaners. However, BJ still fields candidates in, say, Hartlepool?

NF has been had and everyone who paid £25 has been had by NF. Enjoy the peerage.

    Nigel isn’t doing Boris that much of a favour. TBP wouldn’t have expected to gain any seats from the Conservatives anyway. But even if Boris holds all 317, he’s still short of a majority. TBP is threatening to split the Leave vote in all the seats which the Conservatives hope to gain… Watch this space.

      The simple point is NF has lost big. Take Hartlepool where they stood a good chance. BJ is standing down no one anywhere. They are contesting Tice and now have the nerve to demand even more – Farage has either sold out or has been sold a pup.

      Why is TBP not contesting Remain Tory seats? It simply doesn’t add up, whichever way it’s spun.

    This is a mistake by Nigel Farage. Most Brexit voters know that the Tories do NOT intend to deliver Brexit. They intend to deliver BoJo’s Surrender Treaty instead, and by doing this, Farage is facilitating that outcome.

    In fact, this may split the pro-Brexit vote more than if the Brexit Party had stood in every constituency on an uncompromising clean-break Brexit ticket.

    If Brexit voters think that Farage might support BoJo’s Surrender Treaty, many will vote for UKIP or For Britain, if those parties field candidates.

      Politics is ‘the art of the possible’.

      Nigel is doing everything possible.

      ‘For Britain’ won’t get 10,000 votes totalled across the whole country.

        Nope, re Farage. His support was all because he stood firm. Now he’s gone for the gong, he’s just like the rest.

    It is minds that matter, not votes. How might we know minds in this coming election, what would be the most hopeful sign, given the actual election we have?

    The lowest percentage voter turnout ever.

    Indicative of a total loss of confidence. Indicative that people have ceased to look to politicians and parties and voting in order to change things for the better. Indicative of a switch mass direct personal action by tens of millions.

    Anything less is not worth having.
