 Point of the Brexit Party
Topic Originator: jake89  
Date:   Fri 1 Nov 09:47

Say a constituency elects a Brexit party MP. After we have Brexit, what would that MP do? The party appears to have no real manifesto and exist only to get Brexit done. I'd say you'd have to be an idiot to vote on the basis of a single policy, but, well, stupid people...

Brilliant, won't see them standing in Scotland then. I'll be surprised if Labour stand here also as all they've got left now is the Tena brigade ...

They don't have a manifesto because they don't want people knowing what they are.

This site has some quotes from Brexit party politicians to give you an idea of exactly what they are.

The Brexit Party is not really a political party as the term is generally understood. It only has three members who seem to decide what little policy exists. The rest of the alleged 100,000 are ‘registered supporters’ who pay for the privilege of not having a say, all of these being committed to the concept of democracy no doubt.

In effect the Brexit Party is really a pressure group whose purpose is to ensure no backsliding on the part of the Conservative Party. Interestingly, this backsliding is exactly the policy that Johnson is taking into a General Election, a BRINO that many consider a worse deal than Theresa May’s. Yet instead of Farage thundering on all airwaves about ‘betrayal’ and ‘traitors’ he has been afforded very little airtime and his statements have been mostly muted appeals about an electoral pact. A closet Remainer methinks.

Or most likely his funders have told him that Johnson’s BRINO is all that can be salvaged of the dream that was Brexit and Farage’s duty to the millionaire class he represents is to create nuisance value in some marginal seats. Half a Brexit is better than none in their eyes and Farage will be well rewarded if he goes easy on Johnson during the hustings.

Some interesting insight into their motivation on delivering Brexit but not with a deal....

ETA : I actually went looking for an article on a shop in felixstowe....I think they actually have a Brexit shop. If I go back I might pop in and ask them what their plan is.

Trump was doing fine until he suggested the US might not be able to do a deal with the UK based on Johnson's deal with the EU! As I said on another thread, who needs enemies when you have friends like Trump.😊😊😊
