Farage Calls for ‘Peaceful Revolution’ to Challenge UK’s ‘Broken’ Politics

“Within the space of three weeks, we’ve taken [this] completely brand new entity, and believe it or not, we are leading in the polls,” Farage reported.

“Something big is happening.”

Nigel-Farage-4-640x480.png

Nigel Farage has said that the UK’s “broken” and “out of touch” political system needs to be challenged in a “peaceful political revolution” so that Britons can “win back the ability of our nation to be democratic.”

Addressing a crowd at a Brexit Party rally in Flyde, on Saturday, Mr Farage warned that “there is something absolutely fundamental at stake” beyond the campaign for May 23rd’s European Parliament election, which goes to the very core of British democracy.

“Can you imagine an African country, if there had been an election or a referendum that had been overturned? Many of those in the Remain camp would be having fits of the vapours, demanding the United Nations was sent in and that democracy must win through,” Mr Farage said.

“But here in the country that has had a continuous parliament since the thirteenth century… in the country that has the mother of parliaments, it is in our very country that the very democratic process has been wilfully betrayed by a political class that has acted — in my view — in the most disgraceful, almost treacherous manner,” he said.

The former UKIP leader formed The Brexit Party earlier this year in anticipation of Prime Minister Theresa May breaking her Brexit pledges, resulting in the UK being pulled into European Parliament elections.

The veteran Eurosceptic politician was proven right in recent months when the prime minister twice delayed Brexit and ruled out leaving on March 29th without a deal after her controversial EU-approved withdrawal treaty was rejected three times in the House of Commons.

“So we are fighting these elections because we are standing up and fighting for the very principle of democracy, for the very principle of self-determination, and for the very thing that those generations that went before us made massive sacrifices to defend,” the Brexiteer said.

Mr Farage went on to tell the rally that the two-party system “serves nothing but itself. We have a Parliament that is out of touch with the nation. We have a civil service that has given up on any idea of being independent and many of them are now active Remain campaigners.”

Calling the UK’s political system “rotten to the core,” Farage rallied for a “peaceful political revolution” to “win back our birthright. We are going to win back the ability of our nation to be democratic.”

The Brexit Party is currently polling first in European Parliament voting intentions and is predicted that more than half of those who voted Conservative in the 2017 General Election will vote for the party in the May 23rd election.

WITCH to be Burned in Election

POLL: Theresa May headed for historic defeat...

Theresa May on track for the worst General Election result in Tory Party history - as Brexit Party is predicted to win more votes than Labour and Conservatives COMBINED in European elections, polls say

  • The Brexit Party is slated to win 34% of the vote in upcoming European elections 
  • Labour is on 21% and the Tories are predicted to win just 11% of the vote 
  • The data, from Opinium, also puts Labour first on 28% for a General Election

The Conservatives have plummeted to fifth place in the latest poll ahead of the European elections, 24 points behind the buoyant Brexit Party.

The survey ahead of next week’s contest has the Tories on just 10 per cent, securing less backing than Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party.

However, Nigel Farage’s newly-formed Brexit Party was in the lead, which despite only being launched weeks ago was on 34 per cent in the YouGov poll for The Times.

Tory-Brexit Party Alliance Urged After Polling Surge

Brexit-Party-Bus-640x480.png

A prominent Conservative Member of Parliament has called on his party to consider an electoral alliance with the surging Brexit Party as a means to see off oblivion for the movement, and to deliver Brexit for the British people.

The comments by former soldier, defence select committee member, and foreign affairs select committee chair Crispin Blunt come after a series of polls showed sustained growth of support for the Brexit party.

While European Union elections have long been seen as a safe place for mid-term protest votes to take place by the political establishment in the United Kingdom, polling showing that the month-old Brexit Party is now beating the Conservatives in even general election polling has sent shockwaves through Westminster.

Seeing his party as failing to deliver its core manifesto pledges and being potentially punished at the polls as a result, veteran MP Blunt took to British television to say the party had to reinvent itself as one of Brexit. Speaking on the BBC’s Newsnight, Blunt said it was time for the Conservatives to reinvent themselves in the face of changing demands from the public over what they want out of politics. He said:

At one point, the Prime Minister will be replaced. I cannot imagine for one minute that Theresa May is going to want to go to the next Conservative Party conference in October and address it as leader.

I accept of course we’re in deep trouble and deep difficulty. But if we, under a new leader, reinvent ourselves properly as a Brexit party, we will be faced with the inevitability at some point of a general election in order to deliver Brexit because this parliament is stopping the delivery of Brexit.

Despite the hope for clawing back support by making it explicit that the Conservative party supports the democratic will of the British people — something apparently unclear under the leadership of Theresa May — Blunt seemed to also accept that much of the damage was already done. Although it was not clear what it might entail, the veteran Tory said it would be necessary for his party to do a deal with Nigel Farage’s Brexit party, saying:

…in my judgment, we are going to have to come to an accommodation with the Brexit Party.

The Conservatives as a Brexit party, being very clear about their objectives are almost certainly going to have to go into some kind of electoral arrangement with the Brexit Party, otherwise Brexit doesn’t happen.

Blunt’s outspoken remarks about the future of his own party have been met with some distaste, with The Times reporting unnamed Conservative members of Parliament who said they would abandon the party if it took support from the Brexit Party in a future Parliament to deliver Brexit.
Nigel Farage had said just hours earlier that he was willing to do a “deal with the devil” — meaning giving political support to the Conservative or Labour parties — if they’d deliver a full Brexit, admittedly an unlikely scenario in both cases as the parties presently stand.

May faces a new coup... Developing...

THERESA May faces a new coup today after a gamble to force through her Brexit deal by offering Remainers a second referendum backfired spectacularly.

The offer was blasted by MPs on all sides — and left Brexiteers seething at her “betrayal”.

Senior Tory backbenchers will now try to force a confidence vote in the PM when the party’s grandees meet at 4pm on Wednesday.

Brexiteer Nigel Evans said: “She has U-turned on absolutely everything. We cannot put up with this any longer.

“I will be asking my colleagues tomorrow to agree to a rule change so we can hold an immediate confidence vote if Theresa is not prepared to stand down now.”

The new revolt comes after Mrs May offered Remainers in Parliament the chance of a “confirmatory vote” if they agree to pass her EU divorce “new deal” in two weeks’ time.

Mrs May said it gave MPs “one last chance” to deliver on the 2016 referendum result. She said failing to take it would lead to a “nightmare future of permanently polarised politics”.

The PM added that if they refused they risked Brexit “slipping away from us”. But No10 was shaken by the overwhelmingly negative reaction by MPs on all sides.

CONFIDENCE VOTE BID

The executive of the Tories’ 1922 Committee will be urged Wednesday afternoon to change party rules to enable a new confidence vote on Mrs May.

She won a previous vote in December and current rules say she cannot be challenged again for 12 months.

Labour and Tory MPs have queued up to dismiss the deal.

By 8pm, at least 21 Conservatives who had previously backed the PM’s deal announced they would switch their vote and oppose it.

‘The Worst Prime Minister Ever’ – Reactions to Theresa May’s Resignation Roll In

A Dignified Exit speech and THIS:

he tackled the really big issues like diversity audits,” > Is that how she will be remembered?   Probably

l8enVF9w?format=jpg&name=orig

Theresa May had clung on after surviving the loss of her parliamentary majority in the 2017 snap election, three historic parliamentary defeats for her proposed withdrawal treaty with the EU, a no confidence vote in which over half of her backbenchers called on her to go, calls to step down by the leadership of the party’s grassroots activists, devastating losses in English local elections, and dire polling for the European Parliament elections.

But, with an attempt to put her withdrawal treaty to the House of Commons for a fourth time, sweetened with an offer to let MPs vote on holding a second referendum, holed below the waterline before it could even be table, she has at last accepted the inevitable in an emotional speech, highlighting such “achievements” as her race disparity audit and gender pay reporting.

Reactions are mixed, with right-leaning Sun newspaper offered a pitying yet damning verdict in its leader article on her premiership, with digital political editor Hugo Gye observing that “she suffered the worst election campaign and the worst Commons revolt in history… she’s likely to be remembered as possibly the worst Prime Minister in decades or even of all time.”

Gye’s colleague Tom Newton Dunn struck a similar tone, describing her speech as a “highly dignified defence of her record”, but also a “clear admission of serious failure.”

“But the emotional collapse at the end revealed she is also [a] shattered human being, broken by the Brexit wheel,” he added.

Leave.EU, the larger of the two major Brexit campaigns in 2016, did not sweeten the pill, greeting her departure with a blunt “Good riddance! It’s time for Britain to have a prime minister who believes in this country and wants to deliver Brexit!

Arron Banks, the group’s pull-no-punches founder, was equally scathing: “he tackled the really big issues like diversity audits,” he remarked caustically. “She humiliated the UK and will go down as the [worst] PM ever.”

We will soon find out how well Farage has done to take votes from the Conservatives. They are guaranteed to be in 1st place - the question is by how much? The pound is set for a nasty fall on Monday.

Yes.  I am looking forward to it !

It echoes the 2016 Conservative contest when Gove famously sank Johnson's campaign by quitting as its chairman and insisting he was unfit to be leader

Michael Gove has today announced his candidacy for the Tory leadership with a veiled attack on old rival and front runner Boris Johnson

In what has been perceived as a stab at the former London Mayor, the Environment Secretary claimed that he is more 'capable' and said the next leader cannot just 'respect' the Brexit vote but must have the 'wherewithal to deliver it'. 

This echoes the 2016 Conservative contest when Gove famously sank Johnson's campaign by quitting as its chairman and insisting he was unfit to be leader. 

Gove's entry into the race for Downing Street grows an already crowded field of prime ministerial hopefuls which has seen big beasts Dominic Raab and Andrea Leadsom set out their leadership stalls today.

Conservative Boris Johnson Is Set To Be The Next U.K. Prime Minister And There Will Be Tears From the Left

xx

As I wrote a few days ago, the pro-Brexit party, which didn’t exist about ten minutes ago, looks like it is going to win huge in last Thursday’s elections in the U.K. (official results aren’t until Sunday). This is a swift repudiation of the “remain” establishment that was seeking a second referendum to undo Brexit. It’s also a rejection of leftism, as the socialist Labour Party continues to shrink its minority status.

Due to the all but certain results, current Prime Minister Theresa May resigned today. She had hemorrhaged most of her support in the conservative party and simply had no path forward. That’s got people asking who the next PM will be and we’ve got a very likely answer.

Enter Boris Johnson.

No sympathy for May and those tears...none whatsoever...What was she crying for ? ..She loved her country so much she wanted to turn it into a slave state..What a P of S and to think when she came in I wanted to give her a chance...we gave her a chance and she sold us down the river for 3 years. We are absolutely infuriated with the Tories.. Now they think they can change the leader and everything is going to be hunky dory again.

You should just here the MSM we have to endure here... 24 hours a day remain propoganda and tonight when the EU election results came out it was as if the Lib Dems had won !

The world has been turned on it's head here. The denial amongst remain campaigners is off the charts. Adam Boulton on Sky news tonight more or less calling for a second referendum..totting up all the Remain votes and then throwing in the Labour vote and saying that proves people have changed their mind...that a second referendum was the only answer to the deadlock in Parliament...It just goes on and on...usually a 3 or 4 to one ratio of remain pundits to leave and they just get shouted down constantly.

I think they were really taken by surprise when Nigel started the Brexit Party because they were hoping to use these EU elections to make a case for a second referendum and now it's been ruined by the rise of the Brexit Party and the resignation of May...She would never have resigned if it hadn't been for the pressure created by them on the Tories and it's thrown them into disarray.

This guys video summed up very well my feelings on Theresa May's premiership and the Tory government :

 

As for the future Tory leader I don't trust Johnson an inch..another Tory clown.. He won't do anything unless Nigel Farage is there to push him all the way. Who knows if he will get the job anyway...they say the favourite never wins the Tory leadership race. Maybe a dark horse like Steve Baker will come through. Whoever it is I hope they grow a pair and do the job they were told to do....In any case they will never get my vote again as long as there is a Brexit Party alternative to vote for.

She loved her position, and the power held by her Elite friends

Good riddance !  (tho' I liked her exit speech)

Boris Who?

h_55216330-714x476.jpg

The Brexit Party was the clear winner in the UK's European elections, with the pro-EU Lib Dems coming second.

The Conservatives and Labour suffered heavy losses, with the former expected to get less than 10% of the vote.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said he was ready to "take on" the Tories and Labour in a general election.

Overall, out of 64 MEPs declared so far, Mr Farage's party has won 28, the Lib Dems 15, Labour 10, Greens seven, the Tories three and Plaid Cymru one.

Mr Farage told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "With a big, simple message - which is we've been badly let down by two parties who have broken their promises - we have topped the poll in a fairly dramatic style.

"The two party system now serves nothing but itself. I think they are an obstruction to the modernising of politics... and we are going to take them on."

A SUDDEN TSUNAMI /

Media reports that the Tories suffered their worst election result in two centuries, dropping to just nine per cent !!

Farage Declares ‘This Is Just the Beginning’ After Brexit Party Victory in EU Elections

VICTORIA FRIEDMAN

Nigel Farage has led the Brexit Party to victory while the establishment parties are left assessing the damage after their historic losses, with the Brexiteer declaring: “This is just the beginning.”

With almost all regions counted, the Brexit Party is in the clear lead after winning around one-third of the vote and projected to have gained 29 seats. In a distant second, the pro-Remain Liberal Democrats won 15 seats, while the new Change UK (CUK), established solely to stop Brexit, failed to gain a single seat.

“Never before in British politics has a party just 6 weeks old won a national election,” Mr Farage posted to Twitter Monday morning. “If Britain does not leave the EU on October 31st, these results will be repeated at a general election.

“History has been made. This is just the beginning.”

Media reports that the Tories suffered their worst election result in two centuries, dropping to just nine per cent of the vote and winning only four seats — losing 15 — while the Labour Party is said to have had its worst election result in 100 years, halving its presence in the European Parliament from 20 to just ten seats.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain on Monday morning, Mr Farage warned that the establishment political parties will suffer in the next General Election, scheduled for 2021, if they fail to take the UK out of the EU by October 31st, saying: “That date will become a bigger factor in peoples’ minds as these five months go by. If we don’t leave on the 31st of October, then the Brexit Party will go on to a General Election and stun everybody there, too.”

The Brexit Party leader later told the BBC that his party would be ready for even an October snap General Election, saying that it “might not be easy, but that work starts this afternoon.”

Recent polling of Westminster voting intentions point to the Brexit Party being ahead of the Conservative Party and just two points away from taking the lead over Labour.

Next month, the Brexit Party is challenging the establishment parties in the Peterborough by-election after the former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya was unseated following a recall petition.

After winning, according to provisional results, 29 seats in the European Parliament, the Brexit Party could find itself gain its first seat in the British House of Parliament, the next step in Mr Farage’s challenge to the two-party system, bringing about a “peaceful revolution” in British politics.

BOJO : NO MO JO?

Delingpole: Bojo Has Lost His Mojo. Britain Needs a New Margaret Thatcher

Delingpole: Bojo Has Lost His Mojo. Britain Needs a New Margaret Thatcher

The current favourite to replace Theresa May is Boris Johnson. But I worry that Bojo has lost his mojo.

I noticed this last October at the Conservative Party conference when he gave his big speech: there were queues round the block; everyone wanted to be there for the moment when Boris staked his claim as the heir to Thatcher — or, as I rather hoped at the time, the British Donald Trump.

But he fluffed it. It was competent, but unmemorable. Neither then nor since has Boris shown any indication that he understands the scale of the task ahead of him. The Conservative Party is in such a bad way it doesn’t need a loveable buffoon to jolly it along and give the chaps and chapesses a bit of a fillip. It needs a cancer surgeon.

Boris has spent his career so far playing the fool as Prince Hal. If he ever wants to become Henry V, he needs the moment where he says to Falstaff, “I know thee not, old man.”

Falstaff, in this analogy, would be all the things — both people and ideas — which are currently making the Conservative Party effectively unelectable.

These would include disaster areas like Amber Rudd, an utterly useless throwback from the Theresa May era who seems to imagine that just because she once accidentally held one of the great offices of state — Home Secretary — she has a right to be considered as a key player in the current leadership contest.

Rudd is heavily hinting that, despite having once been spectacularly rude about Boris during the referendum campaign, she now wouldn’t be at all averse to standing on a joint leadership ticket with him.

Johnson should treat this offer much as Konrad Adenauer might have done if Admiral Karl Doenitz had suddenly suggested that, what with his rich past experience of government, he might be of help in the new German administration.

Tories obliterated by tide of Brexit Party turquoise: Map shows the scale of Nigel Farage's political earthquake in EU elections as the public hammers the Conservatives and Labour

 
/ 2 /

What if Euro poll was a GENERAL election? Farage would be PM with a 200-seat majority - but in reality higher turnout would keep Nigel out of No 10 (probably)

Nigel Farage might have delivered a political earthquake in the EU elections - but it would be nothing to the shock if he could replicate the performance in a Westminster election.

The Brexit Party would be sitting on a 200-plus seat majority if the votes broke down the same way in a general election, according to the Electoral Calculus website.

Labour is on the verge of finally coming out of the Remain closet. Both McDonnel and Corbyn talking up the idea of a People's vote in the media today. I guess they are preparing to use that as a campaign tool in the event of an early General election.

So the race is on...Can the Tories elect a new leader and deliver Brexit before Westminster and the enemy within can sabotage Brexit and force a General election which may well produce a Labour government and a second stitch up referendum.

The EU remain fanatics know this is their last chance and their media pals are pulling out all the stops to spin The Brexit Party landslide into a victory for Remain.

Constant reminders that there is... no other deal to be had...nothing has changed...there is no way out of this deadlock...and people have the right to change their mind and the only answer is to have a People's vote where the choice is Remain vs the worst deal in history.

NO SYMPATHY for MAY's Tears

Owen Jones responds

Political commentator Owen Jones, who identifies as gay, appeared on Sky News to discuss Theresa May’s tearful resignation.

Sky News presenter Adam Boulton asked during a TV segment: ‘Owen, you say you don’t have much sympathy for her?’

Jones then replied: ‘I’ve got less than no sympathy for her.

‘She didn’t publicly break down publicly over the victims of Windrush, who, because of her policies, were driven from their homes, denied medical care, and even kicked out the country.

‘She didn’t cry publicly over the dozens of working class people who burned to death in Grenfell Tower. She didn’t weep publicly over those who’ve had their benefits stripped from them, those driven to food banks, because of her policies. The victims of universal credit.

‘I think our media can often express much more sympathy for the powerful – in her case, she will lead a no doubt comfortable and affluent life to her very end, rather than the victims of their policies, who I’m afraid have been driven into misery, insecurity and turmoil as a direct result,’ Jones said.

 
Embedded video
 

Reporter: ‘Can’t you just respond on a human level?’

Boulton then asked: ‘Can’t you just respond on a human level?’

Jones responded: ‘I have responded on a human level.

‘I’ve spoken about the humanity of those who have suffered as a consequence of her policies and I wish the news would give far more space to them rather than spending time discussing the prime minister crying because she can no longer hold the most powerful job in the country,’ he said.

Many people took to Twitter to share Jones’ sentiment in condemning Theresa May’s policies and to share the video.

One tweet has almost 200,000 likes and 60,000 retweets, at the time of writing.

Jones then tweeted: ‘Don’t feel sorry for Theresa May. Feel sorry for the victims of her policies.’
