    Ah, after the naming fiasco, One Nation changed name to become Our Nation. Our Irrelevance more like.

    is Our Nation still shacked up with the model, or has she moved onto pastures new?

    Splitting that crucial racist/nostalgia/senior/Dads' Army vote, which currently stands at 2% in the polls. :D

    How long before he's sat next to Rees Mogg on the Tory benches?

    I have no doubt Farage would love to join the Tories (he knows ukip is finished) but there might be a party row about whether to let him in or not. ;) Maybe Boris or Rees Mogg could appoint him as an advisor.:p

    Not sure that Farage would want to join the Tories , at least not at this point, but equally I am not sure what his next step could be. Never liked Farage , he always reminded me of one of those braying donkey types at a golf club that think they are the centre of the universe and probably would recast Jeremy Clarkson as Marlon Brando in The Wild Ones. However do admire that fact that he has drawn a line in the sand bteween him and a UKIP obsessed by Islam and in that grey area between a street movement and a political party.

    Brand damage limitation important for him as his career will be in media.

    Kevin Logan and Kristi Winters are claiming that Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad) was instrumental in getting UKIP to take on Yaxley-Lennon and thereby finally whittling UKIP down to the overt fash contingent.
    What does the team think ?

    I see that Paul Nuttall has now quit ukip as well. No doubt he will be announcing his new job as captain of the England football team later.:p

    I don’t think the kipper sponsored march for brexit this weekend is going to be a well attended event

    if they'd got john west to sponsor it and to distribute free tins of kippers to participants they would have been assured of a vast attendance.

    It might be the day the party died, but just for a moment Batten & Robinson were excited by some news from Germany (courtesy of a Guardian typo)...

    Shouldn’t overdo the schadenfreude as we need a reasonably popular UKIP to suck votes from the tories. A complete collapse of UKIP would be a gift for them.

    farage suggesting new party to absorb the more right wing tories. could split both ukip and tory votes?

    brogdale Coming to terms with late onset Anarchism

    This Autumn they've already been polling at 'collapse' levels close to the far-right 'core' level.
    There's a reason why the Tory vote has held as it has...thus far.

    I think he's pretty calculated. He knew what fields and mindsets he was taping into and happy with it. He doesn't need UKIP anymore to further his own goals and he recognises that they are going to be open about feelings that have always been there. He's decided to distance himself from that because he knows the impact it will have on his image.

    The reactionary English nationalist image?
