Well it shouldn’t take long should it?

That made me giggle maryeliza!

How can any part run without any Manifesto !?!

maryeliza54 Tue 14-May-19 18:24:48

It’s not really a party is it? It’s a cult with a self-appointed Messiah. It’s followers could be called Faragistas.

Is this the fifth or sixth party political broadcast from the so-called brexit party that has been aired by the Brexit Broadcasting Corporation in the last week?

Ha ha maryeliza You sound rather rattled.

The electoral commission has registered and recognises The Brexit Party and given its incredibly fast rate of growth since its inception, you are right to be worried. grin

Slurs regarding its followers now? Oh how surprising - not. Name-calling is infantile. A fairly typical (three year long) response from Remainers though. hmm

Fast rate of growth??? How many actual members (not supporters with no voting rights) does it actually have?

Day6 Tue 14-May-19 18:36:10

Thanks Firecracker. I'll watch that later on.

It’ll be preaching to the choir.

I’m not rattled, it’s not a party whatever has been registered with the EC. Still his disciples are clearly happy enough and stupid enough to not think that they should be able to join and heavens above contribute to policy making and decisions. He’s going to do very well obvs.

Who funds Farage's Brexit Party? Chanel 4 News

Apparently it's mainly older people voting for this party.

Good description

Always worth a reminder

Before voting look at the link that Grany has posted above. It is the channel 4 investigation into Farage and his lavish lifestyle. The smile came off that grinning face when asked questions which should be answered before votes are cast.

Some more wise words

Having just watched ChangeUK being interviewed on the BBC I'm wondering if the Brexit Party got quite such a grilling when they [ie Farage] were on yesterday. Unfortunately it means I'm going to have to find the interview and watch it having made an effort to avoid Farage as much as possible #notgoodformyhealth

What's that saying "When you start taking flak, you know you're over the target".

After the expose of Farage's funding by Channell 4, Farage was asked if Arron Banks had funded him since the referendum to the tune of £450,000, paying for rent, cars, bodyguards, flights, etc. FARAGE DENIED IT.

Arron Banks has now admitted it was absolutely TRUE.

How on earth does liar Farage continue to get away with it? Do his supporters condone lies? Do they not realise that they should never believe a word he says?
