On reflection, they could have probably won those and a somewhat later general election that actually took place with a Norway stance.

The "mustn't grumble" centre ground would have given the green light, albeit with little enthusiasm.

We'll never know.

Time and time again I say this: how come those so proud of their country (c/w little Union Jack/St. George Cross) are unable to command its language?
I thought Treorchi was a town in Wales till I met the Brexit Party.

Indeed. It is quite uncanny.

Right wing politics/inability to use language in a mature manner.
Two effects of the same cause.

Lack of intelligence.

Brexit Party MP Candidates –
Chums and Comrades
THE INTRIGUE CONTINUES

Oversight must be catching because it also inflicted another candidate, Viral Parikh, a serving Conservative councillor in West Sussex. When I approached his local Conservative Association for comment, it seemed taken aback to discover that one of its number was planning to run for a completely different party in a completely different place. Mr Parikh told me that he “was waiting (for) confirmation from Brexit Party about the PPC”, before resigning from the Tories.

It’s not just the Conservatives who are defecting to the Brexit Party. Veteran Labour politician Colin Lambert, the former leader of Rochdale Council, is prospective parliamentary candidate (PCC) for Heywood and Middleton.

Tom Bewick, a Labour ‘stalwart’ who was education committee chair on Brighton and Hove City Council and chair of Vote Leave Brighton during the 2016 EU Referendum is standing against Amber Rudd.

And there’s always space for UKIP deserters. Councillor, failed UKIP candidate and sometime leader of the ‘Tribune Party’ Adrian Myers, is hoping to gain a seat in Great Yarmouth.

I started to formulate an explanation of why that was one of the stupidest things I've ever read, but I couldn't be bothered. It's too far off the scale.

We must never look at the possible consequences of any action before we commit to it...

I wonder where we'd be now if that plane had hit the ground harder?
It's like an alternate reality in which that Farmer didn't capture Rudolf Hess.

Probably with a right wing populist party lead by Griffin. The writing was on the wall during the 2012 world cup when all those Cross of St George flags were flying from car windows. Always suspected that in the majority of cases it had precious little to do with football.

There's nothing new about Ingerlund flags, not since Euro 96.

Griffin was too obviously a thug. Under him the appeal of the BNP may have grown, but it never escaped the council estates. What Fargle managed, shit that he is, was to make his bigotry acceptable among the general public. Done simply by changing the message from "send them all back" to "I'm not racist but...".

He also capitalised on the predictable love of the British public for an upper class eccentric.
