    Just when you thought the desperate humiliation had reached its Nadir, Anne F’cking Widdecombe announces she is postponing her retirement to stand with Farage and complete the hell on earth that is the Brexit party. If she gets into the EP the prospects of the rest of the EU allowing the UK to revoke article 50 would be gone even if a second referendum produced a landslide for Remain.

      The EU survived the Rev Ian telling them they would all burn in hell and having to drag him out of the place - Widders can't compete with that.

        That was for the cameras. He was well able to work with the EU and other parties to secure funding/projects for NI.

          Yep and he was box office - he put the viewing figures for the EU parliament through the roof.

            In 1988 Mr Paisley faced angry objections from MEPs and was ejected from the European Parliament when he interrupted an address by Pope John Paul II.

            He was an active member of the European parliament agriculture and fisheries committee, vigorously putting forward Northern Ireland's case during subsidy negotiations. Along with former nationalist SDLP leader John Hume and Ulster Unionist MEP Jim Nicholson, Mr Paisley, 77, also secured European peace and reconciliation funding for socially deprived communities in northern Ireland and border counties in the Irish Republic.

              Anyway, the point is that Farage and his type don’t do anything positive for their constituents. They lie and incite hatred. Meanwhile they line their pockets with nice salaries, expenses and a future pension.

                It is a good job he is not around for the backstop saga - there more than likely would have been serious fisticuffs.

                    British politics is an open sewer right now.

                    Farage back selling his swill to ****ing idiots. And Annunziata Rees Mogg railing at the elites next to him. The Widdibeest risen from the dead and on the same ticket.

                    UKIP standing a candidate who has defended his claims that he "wouldn't even rape" a Labour MP.

                    Yaxley ****ing Lennon.

                    And topping them all the Independent Group. In their rush to get feet on the ground, they're standing some right pearlers. Including a man who tweeted "I'm afraid of black women. It probably comes from being chased through Barcelona by a black whore", and woman who's tweeted open transphobia. And they didn't manage to register their logo with the electoral commission because they put a hashtag in it. A vaccuous, inane shambles that had the gumption to eviscerate Labour for not dealing instantly with complex disciplinary issues in a half million person organisation. The vanity of them is staggering.

                    The national vote total (assuming anyone votes) will be fascinating. With Tories, UKIP and the Brexit Party all in the running, and the Independent Group (sorry - Change UK! #downwiththekids #****wits), Greens and Lib Dems declining to work together, and Labour still failing to make its position heard, I think there's a reasonable chance of everyone coming out below 20% of the vote.
                    "We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven into an age of unreason if we dig deep into our history and remember we are not descended from fearful men" Edward R Murrow

                    "Little by little, we have been brought into the present condition in which we are able neither to tolerate the evils from which we suffer, nor the remedies we need to cure them." - Livy


                    "I think that progress has been made by two flames that have always been burning in the human heart. The flame of anger against injustice and the flame of hope that you can build a better world" - Tony Benn

                      Assuming for the moment that the good people of Britain are still paying attention then when the EU election votes of all the parties are totted up - and assuming the Labour party declare their hand - either way for a referendum - then the case for that 2nd referendum should be clear and although the Brexit party will probably 'win' - it will (hopefully) be a hollow victory and maybe a bit counter productive.

                        Oh, and lest we forget, the UK is about to enter both Local and European elections with **** all still done about the questions of dodgy funding, data abuse, Leave.EUs Russian links, bag drops to Assange at the Ecuadoran embassy etc etc etc.

                        The Met police have dragged their heels for purely political reasons, even as the Electoral Commission declared that the stuff it investigated would have been criminal if the Referendum had been more than advisory.

                        The whole thing stinks.

                        But here we go again, with the BBC giving wall to wall coverage to the Brexit Party while elected MEPs struggle to be heard.

                        And still, three years into this **** show, 90% of the people voting couldn't tell you what an MEP does.

                        The twitching carcass of British democracy will be given another shoeing in the next two months.

                            The Express shows a less than firm grasp of Arithmetic with its coverage of its own poll on the Euro elections.

                            They have Farrage's crowd in the lead on 89% but continue:

                            "Taking second place was Remainer party Change UK, who are fighting to stop Brexit, with 4 percent of the vote (709 people).

                            Ukip got four percent of the vote with 714 people saying they would back Gerard Batten’s party in the European election polls."

                            (PK's emphasis)

                              As an independent though, thank God, so highly unlikely to be elected, unlike the nut jobs in Farage’s vomit.
