Figured we might need a new thread for this. The Telegraph reports:

Fantastic news. Now we just need an opposition capable of organising a piss-up in a brewery and we can have another 13-year stretch of social and economic progress. Oh, right...

I think that should read 'if' they are held, ie during an extension to article 50. Though what material difference it would make to Brexit I fail to see.

What a wonderful little earner that would be. A few months more as an MEP, all those fees from countless media appearances and we're looking at a million right there.

What do they stand for, then?
Here's a guess.

"The Brexit Party will stand for "real" people, because people who voted remain are not "real" people, who will go up against the elite/political class/establishment/left wing media/lefty liberals to deliver a "real" Brexit.

The Brexit Party will be the only party that can speak for the "real" people. "
