Anyone voting for the Brexit Party is a strawberry floating idiot.

This is going to be seriously demoralising, make no mistake. Prepare yourself for disappointment.

(The following statement is made without irony, you smug cynical banana splits.)

Vote Liberal Democrat.

My hope is that the opinion polls make Leavers overconfident and they don’t bother turning up.

Vote Green. Or Lib Dem.

I’d imagine that’s one of those that his supporters will think he’s won, while everyone else thinks he lost.

“Do you admire Putin?”
“No!”
“But you said you did?”
“Ancient history, let’s talk about revolutionary communists!”

Sadly it was probably good from his perspective. His supporters will like it because they will see it as a brave maverick standing up to establishment bullying, rather than a thick twat getting called out for having horrible and stupid views.

“But WHY doesn’t the BBC cover me!” says the man on the BBC who was last on the BBC on Thursday.

Watching that interview and immediately seeing people claiming it as a Farage victory has me lose even more hope for this country. The Brexit party has no strawberry floating manifesto and that's apparently a good thing and a reason to vote for the vile banana splits.

It's a Farage victory because it's edited by Brexiters to look like a Farage victory. Give the far-right a platform and they will use it to produce soundbites that feed their base. The BBC as an institution seems to fail to even realise this.

If we ever do get a second referendum I'm worried that it's still looking so close that if Farage etc started campaigning for the leave option again it would wipe out any small progress in England towards remain over the last couple of years.

Brexit Party storming ahead, Lib Dems closing on Labour, Tories falling behind Greens, CUKs an irrelevance, UKIP? Wild times.

This is next door to my old place (door to right) in a really low crime liberal area. Technically it's on both properties because they couldn't even fit it in. Been happening around Sussex in a few different places. I saw something about Macron on Brighton Station car park as well but couldn't figure out whether it was positive or negative and maybe the thugs are French as it said "liberte, egalitare" and something else.

This is one of the real pains of the situation, that those "raging against the machine" are the ones who stand to get screwed the most if/when we do leave.

Also top end graffiti so rarely displays the classic "oh gooseberry fool I'm running out of space so I better start writing smaller and/or downward to try and fit stuff in" - truly evidence of a superior mind at work. :fp: :lol:

My last public act of "vandalism" was against cafe Nero, I piled up all the bins they produced each week (about 12 or something ridiculous) into a mountain in front of the door and put up a sign with tape that said something about waste. In retrospect it's kind of funny I did that because I was considerate enough for it to be easily taken down :lol: I didn't damage or deface anything.

Now that is the kind of half brained random activism I expect in this town from time to time. But defacing random people's houses (with bricks from about 1910 pretty worn and so hard to clean) is not cool.

Anyway, I was 17 and actually mentally ill. I suspect this guy is a lot older than that.

It's really interesting watching him speak. I get why idiots fall for him. He sticks to short sentences, pauses to give the people momentary time to make sense of what he is saying. Gestures wildly at times with hands to emphasis his point.

When you dig a bit deeper, he's saying very little beyond meaningless slogans. But his supportive audience don't care.

I find it fascinating. And slightly worrying how people can easily fall for him.

Sky News feature article:

Brexit: The conditions are ripe for the biggest backlash imaginable

Lewis Goodall says Britain's true populist revolt is yet to come - even if Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn strike a Brexit deal.

On an unseasonably chilly May afternoon, Nigel Farage looks out at the rows of empty seats at Fylde AFC, a Lancashire football club, the site of the latest of his Brexit Party rallies (eight and counting).

He knows the stands will soon be filled with over 1,600 paying punters who will come to cheer, to jeer and to hear not only from the man himself - now nothing short of a political folk hero - but a full slate of Brexit Party candidates, including Ann Widdecombe, a Tory of five decades' standing.

Mr Farage is pleased with his latest signing. Chuckling, he reflects to me on some of the lessons he's learnt during his shortish sabbatical from the political fray: "I've spent a lot of time in America recently. They're always a few years ahead of us over there. It's certainly taught me that politics should be far less drab."

The still nascent Brexit Party may be many things, but drab it is not. I have written before about the quality of its branding and social media output, the shrewdness of its operation, the foresight of its strategy. But what became clearer to me, standing in that football stadium, is the pedigree of its politics.

I've never been to a Trump rally - but I imagine, from everything I've seen and heard - that what I experienced on the Fylde wasn't a million miles away.

The vocabulary and pall of its supporters are the obvious signifiers: I was assailed repeatedly by the crowd for being part of the "fake news" media.

Several attendees told me our political leaders should be prosecuted or worse; many said they were traitors and that they and their supporters in other parties were not "true patriots".

The rest: https://news.sky.com/story/trumpism-is- ... e-11714025

What’s also remarkable (or maybe not) is just how badly Change UK have fudged their launch.
