HSBC have more or less said they'll move their headquarters out of the UK if it leaves the EU.

I thought HSBC were thinking of changing headquarter locations because the UK isn't the main area of their business or profit.

I was fairly confident they would re-elect him in September, but this is even more ridiculous :lol:

Yep, me too. UKIP need Farage. Suzanne Evans would have been my preferred alternative in the absence of Mr Farage. 'Nige should go off and have a nice long break over the summer. He'll have plenty to do later on in the year!

An anti-austerity protester made his pisspoor sign by using the box for his £600 TV. :lol: I do so love this gooseberry fool.

Would you had been okay with it had one of the other leaders pledged to resign and still ended up as leader a few days later? If it had been Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg or, hypothetically, Natalie Bennett? I suspect you are and David are okay with it, as the broken pledge strengthens a party you both like, so Farage avoids being called a hypocrite and a liar.

The Lib Dems did well when they promised an alternative to the other two and had conviction. Their campaign this election was "Errr, how about things stay the same, yah?" Have a strawberry floating opinion. Have some policies, even if you will just ignore them and jump into bed with the Tories again. At least promise to do something rather than nothing.


It was watching the post question time where they all tried to explain why the lib dems did so badly. None of them mentioned they had been getting bashed constantly since 2010.

I kind of thought it might have been some tactical move but listen to the post review. oine of then any idea.

No problem at all. That's their call. Personally, I was sad to see Nick Clegg take the fall. I liked the man (hated his politics). Miliband I never liked (but I hold nothing against him personally), but it would have been churlish to object to his staying on as Leader if that is what he wanted. I was genuinely surprised when all the Leaders began falling over like tenpins on Friday.

In fairness, it does say 'No cuts, No capitalism'.

And yes, anybody can protest, and I agree to a point with the anti-austerity statement, but I do find anti-capitalist protesters a very odd bunch.

It's not about them wanting to stay on as leader: it's about them saying they'll quit if 'x' happens, then changing their mind half a week later.


After the votes were counted and announced Nigel Farage did exactly what he promised he would do, prior to the election: he tended his resignation as Leader of UKIP when he failed to win Thanet. It is then for UKIP as a body politic to decide whether or not to accept, defer or reject his resignation. They were quite within their rights to refuse it. He is quite within his rights to accept their decision.

So what is your problem?
