That 'mothers ruin' does not drink itself. Still she can at last celebrate leading a political party,








of fcuking clowns.
If ever weird al jankowitz needed to do a remake of Elvis Costello and title it Watching the defectives it could be played as a soundtrack to this so called parties performance.

With their electoral prospects they might want to get some practice in and switch to SpareSomeChange?UK

This was so obviously going to happen from its outset - a small group of selfish, arrogant, ignorant, outspoken, self opinionated ********* individually hated by huge swathes of the population who were all out to feather their own nests and therefore had no ability to work within a team with a common goal.It must have been a real shocker for them to not get the adoring support they so thought was theirs by right but I confidently predict that tonight they are all in complete denial thinking that it was the fault of 'the others'
To be an effective political party you have to have an ideological stance that appeals to a major part of the population - i.e. clear principles and the ability to articulate them. If a new party, you also have to make a clear case that you are going to be an agent of change.

The basic principle of the Brexit party was clear - get us out of the EU. That resonated with Brexit supporters. And the Brexit party was clearly willing to take us out of the EU if they ever got into government - an agent of change where the existing parties had failed the electorate. As a result, they're riding high in the polls.

Change UK never articulated any principles except "we're different from the parties we defected from" and they never looked like acting as an agent of change. Hence the electorate was underwhelmed by them - and they got a minuscule vote in the European elections.

Farage is bringing conviction politics back to the UK - and if your party doesn't have strong convictions you can articulate and act on, you'll fall by the wayside.

Had they started as a single-issue party opposed to Brexit and called themselves something like Remain UK then they may have garnered more support, but they would still have been competing against the Lib Dems who are already positioned as the pro-EU party and already have established policies beyond that.

Their best bet would have been to join the Lb Dems from the start.

There a big hullubullu about the split and data ownership of email addresses etc.
"Breaking News: The Information Commissioner's Office will investigate this breach of the law, by raiding the offices of The Brexit Party. "

Except that they thought that the Lib Dems were all washed up after the Con Dem coalition. And that was no good for rebellious, but still highly ambitious, ChUKs who thought that frustrated remainers would come flocking to them by the millions.

Wrong.
