I wonder how that is going?
The last time I heard anything about it was this classic...
One nation... two names
A little bit more than a stick.
A little bit less than a plank.
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?
apparently still together
Former Ukip leader's girlfriend Jo Marney: We all make mistakes - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
Splitting that crucial racist/nostalgia/senior/Dads' Army vote, which currently stands at 2% in the polls.
Mistakes were made
Farage has left the party.
Door, arse, etc.
Attention seeking racist tosser. If only that was the last of him we'll see
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.
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 ?

The Times Expose 'Racist' UKIP Member Carl Benjamin
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.
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.
almost as well as Veritas, EDL, BNP ...
Scottish UKIP leader left too. I didnae realise there was a Scottish UKIP let alone a leader.
The other 4 are lost without him.
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?
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.
So the only way is up? With lots more money pouring in from alt right sources?
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?
