    Amirite in thinking we don't have a dedicated thread yet? Seems like BP talk is getting caught up in a number of Brexy threads...so...as we approach the, now formally announced, Euro elections in which the Farage led parry are polling as 'winners' maybe it's time to focus discussion into a thread?

    Mods, please delete if I've missed another obvious one.

    Events are £2.50 a ticket
    Registration is £25
    To become an MP/MEP it’s £100 fee
    No doubt there is also merch on sale at events, I saw someone in a Brexit party shirt just yesterday….
    It just screams of the standard Fash for Cash method.

    I honestly think once they finaly cram the deal through the door (within the next 176 days) he will say oh well, my job here is done, thanks for the extra money i'm off to retire in the EU or something.

    As we've discussed in other Brexy threads...I really don't think that the small donation stream will end up being Farage's greatest source of funding and no, I reckon the party will last many years...just like the Brexit process itself. OTWT, I suppose?

    Yeah, OK...but I really don't see the logic of your position. If May/(insert next tory leader here) were to get the extant Withdrawal Agreement through Parliament, that would merely signal the start of the genuine civil-war within the Parliamentary party and between the Party & it's membership. All of that would result in a Faragist feeding frenzy.

    You're an idiot. Farage is absolutely a grifter, but his grift isn't about personal enrichment via £25 donations - he has his sights set much higher than that.

    The far right is in government, in power and in the brink of power across the world and you think this is about Farage's bank balance? Mad.

    Got a leaflet posted through the letterbox yesterday. What's the best way to return it to the cunts?

    Mr Moose What the hell are we supposed to tell the kids?

    Someone on Twitter loudly claiming that the CPGB’s (ML) other communists are available, are backing the Brexit Party, though the tweet highlighted can’t be found.

    The screenshot looks like it's from facebook rather than twitter, which may explain why it's not been found.

    that said, I can't find it on their facebook either.

    If a call from the CPGB(ML) for the British working class to vote for the Brexit Party doesn't sweep Farage to power, I don't know what will...

    there's a lot of weird dodgy screenshots about atm, so check before you believe 'em - yesterday I saw one where farage apparently announced Galloway as the Brexit candidate for the peterborough by-election, which didn't seem to have any basis in reality.

    Latest poll on AOL of 16.800+ votes has Brexit party on 71% of the votes. :eek:

    Sending them to the EU parliament will mean no more delays to the UK buggering off. They should, of course, be like SF and not take their seats.

    not only should they take their seats, they should be nailed to them

    And that make tea, do the accounts, the publicity, run events and book a table at the pub for the annual conference.

    As many as that? Clearly they're outperforming the Communist Party of Great Britain - Leninist Marxist by some distance.

    Small change. The real money is coming from all those 1% types looking for a vehicle to lead the pushback against tax transparency and trans-national regulation.
