Brexit Party 'won't stand in 317 Tory seats' - does it make Johnson win likelier?

  • Published on Nov 11, 2019
  • As political U-turns go - this was pretty spectacular.


    Just days after declaring his Brexit Party would run in every seat in the country - today Nigel Farage declared they wouldn't. In fact, they won't be standing in any of the 317 seats the Conservatives won last time around, in what Mr Farage described as a “unilateral Leave alliance”. Boris Johnson welcomed the move - but where does it leave the pro-Brexit vote in some of the Tories key target seats?

    The Labour paid trolls have hit this site again en masse. Typical Channel 4 bias and hopefully once this Brexit is sorted out we can get the public financial contribution stopped to the BBC and get Channel 4 out of public ownership.

    I hope all of you brexiteers now realise Farage just took you for the ride of your lives.

    Wave the chance of a peerage at Farage and suddenly half of the party is ready to stand down... charlatan.

    If I went through what Brexiteers are going through.
    following is the details of their misery.
    Brexiteers are under constant watch by the EU's secret service.
    without the EU's permission, the Brexiteers cannot take a shower, use the toilet, have breakfast, go to sleep or even break the air.
    poor Brexiteers are being brutalised, beaten, arrested, harassed and persecuted by the operatives of fascist EU state.
    EU is also planning to send Brexiteers to concentration camps.
    it hurts me to see Brexiteers suffocating under the EU rules and regulations.
    The world and the UNO are silent at this human tragedy
    Brexiteers need a champion like Joan of Arc to lead them to freedom from the EU.

    Farage is showing what a hypocrite he is. There is something deeply wrong with UK democracy when the Party leader (dictator) can tell candidates they can't run in their own constituency.

    It has zero positive effect for the tories.
    Brexit Party is a tiny, pointless protest party, just like UKIP was.
    They'll get zero seats, just like UKIP did.
    The only thing he's done here, is he's restricting the Tory vote in marginals, which will help Labour far more than the Tories.

    The correct strategy is the people should seek a court injunction to stop any MP who has been in this rotten parliment which has collapsed the notion of democracy in the UK.

    Johnson & Farage could make it their policy to exterminate every UK citizen when they reach retirement age and still the brain dead people of this country will vote for them. Noted & continual liars, caught out time and again yet the brain dead somehow think they're honest guys. If you vote for them and subject this country to 5 years of Johnson & Farage and you'd be as well turning the lights out right now.

    If we are going to stay in which looks more than likely, we may as well
    stay in with Corbyn, no good voting for conservatives we've seen their
    way of staying in over the last three years.

    They're all full of sh@t.
    Doris should now be dead in a ditch, having backed down on his own withdrawal agreement.
    Farage should crawl under the nearest rock, having caved in to Trump and Doris.
    Real Brexiteers now have nobody to rely on, and they will probably vote Tory and get BRINO. Just like they did in 2017.
    Corbyn wants to take us back to the 70s. Sounds like a great idea at the moment.

    If you cannot see what is happening then it is this: Brexit can go swing as long as the status quo is maintained. Since 2009 the richest 1,000 in Britain have seen there wealth increase by 183% from 256b to 724b (during austerity/we're in it together/slashing of services). Corbyn threatens this system. Maintaining that system is ALL Nigel Farage (commodities broker, ret.) is interested in. Over a couple of weeks Nigel's "outrage" at the Conservative Party has magically disappeared.

  • IPCC SaysLessThan12Years

    Dear Britain,
    You're permitted to choose between a right winger like Tony Blair or a right winger like Boris Johnson.
    Jeremy Corbyn does not fall within these parameters because he won't support wars for profit, tax cuts for the rich, austerity, privatisation with public handouts and fracking. Please now get back in your box and do what you're told. Lots of love, The Establishment.

    Been a lot of proven false promises and empty reassurances from Farage and Johnson in recent months. Does that make them untrustworthy in terms of campaign promises and post-Brexit reassurances? Yes, probably.
