    Most Brexit party voters will stick with the Brexit party, however the turn out was low so the GE predictions of the vote being split equally between the Brexit party and the Tories are realistic.

    My Euro-election post-vote poll: most Tory switchers say they will stay with their new party - Lord Ashcroft Polls

    There is no way the Tories will be able to pull off some no deal that won't be a complete disaster and end in total humiliation where they after a few weeks they sign up to a withdrawal agreement, so they're pretty much sunk.

    Their best bet would have been to sign up to May's deal and tough it out.

    The end game is now clear, and that is the annihilation of the Tories at a future GE.

    Any news when The Brexit Party will release their manifesto or what might be in it? Until that happens I will reserve judgement. I'm going to have a guess that it will pursue a WTO Brexit, NHS privatisation (to get the USA trade deal), Points based immigration policy, Low taxation with a tory ideology of a smaller state.

    I can't see Leave supporting Labour voters sticking with the Brexit Party if that is their manifesto.

    Manifesto for what?

    Their purpose is to be a thorn in the side of the EU and to remind whichever party is in power in the UK that we're supposed to be leaving.

    He likes lying though, currently live on Radio 2 and is lying through his teeth and bigging himself up as an expert negotiator
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Ah, so not to serve any democratically-elected purposes or be involved in political dialogue with other democratically elected people, but just to prevent others from trying to do their jobs.

    "The party's lead aim is its desire for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union and then trade with countries on World Trade Organization terms."

    There you go, in a nutshell.

    Get one of the big boys to explain it to you.
