Brexit Party Electoral Shenanigans

Pretty frigging obvious to me that the far-right likes of Tommy Robinson & Nigel Farage exploit the base fear & hate of gullible gammon to boost their own egos & feather their nests (then some), there was no finer illustration of this when yesterday Farage as leader of the Brexit Party announced the Brexit Party will not be standing candidates in any of the 317 parliamentary constituencies the Tories won at the 2017 General Election & in return I’m certain Boris has ensured Farage is in line for a knighthood or peerage when it comes to the New Year’s honours which will be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds (if not millions) when it comes to lucrative after dinner speakers circuit in North America.

Nigel Farage who soon enough will be knighted or made a life peer but I’ll be damned if I’ll address him as anything other then a pompous twat

The BBC’s Politics Live program was yesterday as per usual with the mainstream news media giving the Brexit Party disproportionately more coverage as compared to other minor parties such as the Greens, I mean the Brexit Party has ZERO MPs & ZERO local councillors & after this coming General Election will still have ZERO MPs whereas the Greens have 300+ local councillors & come December 12th will at the very least re-elect Caroline Lucas the one MP they have in parliament, but anyways various political pundits in the Politics Live studio seemed somewhat stunned & shocked in reaction to Nigel Farage’s announcement that the Brexit Party won’t be standing candidates in Tory leaning constituencies, I’m actually somewhat surprised that any political pundit would be shocked that the Brexit Party would enter an unofficial electoral pact with the Tories because I certainly wasn’t shocked as its always been apparent to me that the Brexit Party were pretty much a Tory fringe group.

It might please Tory bigwigs that the Brexit Party is stepping aside in Tory leaning constituencies but I’m not sure it will please the Kremlin considering all the Russian Roubles they’ve funnelled with creative accounting into this country to bankroll Nigel Farage & the Brexit in order they can further destabilise & fuck up this nation, actually rumour has it that the Tories are also being bankrolled with dodgy Russian money, so Boris better hope he wins the General Election & seriously screws this country up with Brexit otherwise Putin will ensure there’s more Parmesan cheese being sprinkled on Boris’s spag-bog.

If Boris doesn’t successfully manage to screw up this country with Brexit then I suggest he starts checking there isn’t radioactive seasoning on his food

Some are obviously asking if the Brexit Party & the Tories are entering an unofficial electoral pact then why can’t Labour & the Lib Dems do likewise? Of course there’s already the Remain Alliance involving Lib Dems along with the Green Party & the Welsh & Scottish nationalists, each party standing down candidates in constituencies where candidates from each of those other parties have a better chance of winning thus not splitting the ‘Remain vote’, I’ve one major problem with this & that is there are more important issues then fucking Brexit, such as homelessness, hunger, poverty, fucking Tory austerity which Jo Swinson & the Lib Dems helped to inflict upon some of the most vulnerable people when they were propping up the Tories in the 2010-2015 coalition government, plus why the fuck should Labour help out the Lib Dems when Jo Swinson repeatedly says the Lib Dems would never support a Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn & spends far more time attacking Jeremy Corbyn & Labour then attacking Boris Johnson & the Tories, Swinson is no more then a Tory wearing a yellow rosette & I expected better of Caroline Lucas to align herself & the Greens with Yellow Tories.

So pretty clear the Brexit Party on behalf of the Tories are targeting Labour seats in northern England which voted for Brexit in the 2016 EU Referendum, hey good luck with that but I think the Brexit Party are in for a rude awakening as are the Tories wherever they’re targeting seats in Northern England, these are the former industrial heartlands destroyed by the Tory government of Margret Thatcher & these are also the same constituencies hardest hit by Tory austerity over the past decade something which I’m sure Jeremy Corbyn & Labour will remind voters about, Labour have boots on the ground with Momentum advocating a message of hope built upon concrete policies to address the issues effecting people & believe it was due to the hard work of Momentum activists at the last election as to why Labour gained far more seats than pundits predicted, so who the fuck do the Brexit Party have campaigning for them other then a few gammon thugs & disgruntled racist biddies offering fuck all solutions to the real issues effecting people, ah but of course a vote for the Brexit Party means blue passports because blue passports are going to alleviate poverty aren’t they.

Lib Dems Stop Being Awkward F**kwits & Grasp The Only Choice To Prevent A No-Deal-Brexit Is To Support Jeremy Corbyn

Last week was the week I decided to take a break from writing & of course this had to be the very week when all fucking heck broke lose politically here in the UK, with Jeremy Corbyn offering to lead a government of national unity to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit & soon after call a General Election.

Backing Jeremy Corbyn is the only option to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit

For Jeremy Corbyn to become Prime Minister in a government of national unity, Labour would have to first win a parliamentary vote of no confidence in the current Tory government, now there is a very real possibility Labour could in fact win such a vote with the support of all MPs from opposition parties as there are a substantial number of Tory MPs opposed to there being a No-Deal-Brexit who’d be prepared to vote the government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson down if Boris plumps for a No-Deal-Brexit which at this stage if Boris wants to keep to the October 31st deadline is logistically the only form of Brexit he & the Tory government can plump for. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour leadership have said they’d be prepared to table a motion of no confidence when parliament reconvenes week after next if MPs from opposition parties would be prepared to back Jeremy in becoming Prime Minister in a government, but of course the Liberal Democrats have been acting like awkward fuckwits in response to this & as a consequence could cause a No-Deal-Brexit the very thing they claim to fundamentally oppose.

The one thing everybody knows these days about the Liberal Democrats is that they are the Pro Remain party who want there to be a second referendum on EU membership, they’re also the party who have constantly accused the Tories & Labour on the issue of Brexit of putting party interest ahead of the national interest which is certainly true in regards to the Tories which is what got us into this mess in the first place, but here now are the Lib Dems putting their own party interest ahead of the national interest when it comes preventing a No-Deal-Brexit so they can feel important as a minor party. I concede as we are in a hung parliament scenario that the votes of Lib Dem MPs are more crucial, but I don’t see any other option at this stage in preventing a No-Deal-Brexit other then backing Jeremy Corbyn to lead a government of national unity & by the Lib Dems refusing to back this they’re helping to expedite a No-Deal-Brexit which is goes against the very reason why I’d imagine the vast majority of people who’ve voted Lib Dem have opted to vote Lib Dem since the Brexit result of 2016’s EU Referendum, but of course this wouldn’t be the first time the Lib Dems had cheated those who had voted for them, I mean if there’s one thing I’ve learnt about the Liberal Democrats over the years its they truly are the party who say one thing & do another.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson prepared to cause a No-Deal-Brexit despite saying the Lib Dems are fundamentally opposed to a No-Deal-Brexit

An acquaintance of mine who’s a Liberal Democrat perspective parliamentary candidate said to me there are other options to preventing a No-Deal-Brexit then Jeremy Corbyn leading a government of national unity though they didn’t actually elaborate as to what those options were, I know there are possibly various parliamentary procedures which MPs could attempt in trying to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit, but what I think my Lib Dem acquaintance might be referring to with there being other options in preventing a No-Deal-Brexit then Jeremy Corbyn being Prime Minister of a government of national unity is Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson saying they’d be prepared to back a government of national unity led by Labour if the Labour leader were Yvette Cooper or Hilary Benn or Emily Thornberry or any other MP other than Jeremy Corbyn. Why is it I get the impression that Chuka Umunna has had a hand in this bullshit Jo Swinson has been spouting that the Lib Dems would back a Labour led national government of unity if Labour replaced Jeremy Corbyn as leader, being as Chuka defected from Labour via Change UK to the Lib Dems because a democratic-socialist was actually elected leader of a democratic-socialist party & Chuka is way too much of Blairite twat, he really does seem to have so much hatred for Corbyn that he’s willing to cut off his nose off to spite his face but hey it rather appears that so are the rest the Lib Dem Party when it comes to preventing a No-Deal-Brexit, for fucks sake Jo Swinson has spent the past week lying & smearing Jeremy Corbyn on social-media saying he won’t fight for Remain despite Corbyn having explicitly said on numerous occasions that Labour support there being a second referendum & would back Remain in that referendum which correct me if I’m wrong is pretty much the same stance as the Lib Dem position duh!

The Liberal Democrats can dream on about Labour replacing Jeremy Corbyn as leader, there is absolutely fuck all chance of that happening, so here’s my message to the Lib Dems is to stop acting like awkward fuckwits & grasp the only choice is to back Jeremy Corbyn if they truly want to prevent a No-Deal-Brexit & there being any chance of a second-referendum which is what they claim they fundamentally want.

I’d Warn Against Reading Too Much Into The Brecon & Radnorshire By-Election Result

Why was the Brecon & Radnorshire parliamentary by-election being held in August? This is for me personally is the most important question to be asking about Brecon & Radnorshire by-election, as August is usually the political off season, when parliament is in recess, the Prime Minister & whoever politico else take their summer hols & thus all us heavyweight political commentators get to have a break from the grind of writing about what fuck ever is politically going on. I pretty much eat & breathe & shit politics every waking hour of my life as I’m sure my girlfriend can testify, because I do genuinely love being a political polemicist, but even I need a break to go get a frigging sun tan & I’m sure my girlfriend Kim would prefer I did take a break from all the political bullshit, yet here I’m writing about the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election when outside its 25℃ & sunny. It certainly was worse trying to write last week about Boris becoming Prime Minister during the hottest summer week there’s ever been in the UK & attempting to write at night due to the daytime heat but being hampered by Open Reach deciding that’s when they were going to perform maintenance on broadband lines in my local area including my own, grr, grr, grr, GRR!

Okay enough of my bitching about the difficulties I’ve had about writing stuff because the summer heat & corporate bureaucracy as there’s many who aren’t as fortunate as me in being able to speak out & anyways you’re here to read what my thoughts are in response to the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election result, though if I’m to be bluntly honest I’m not sure what the fuck to think about the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election result?!?!? If I attempt to summarise as to reasons for the Brecon & Radnorshire result, well it’s most likely the electorate giving the Tories a kicking for Theresa May’s dismal performance as Prime Minister & the usual mid-term doldrums all governing parties experience with byelections & local election results etc, I also think as with the local election results back in May I think enough time has passed since the coalition government for the Liberal Democrats to return to being everybody’s favourite protest vote, but ultimately I think the result is a consequence of the circumstances in which this byelection came about that being because the then sitting Tory MP Chris Davies was caught & convicted of fiddling his parliamentary expenses thus the electorate rightfully being pissed at him for doing so.

Some pundits reckon there might have been something of a ‘Boris bounce’ for the Tories, well this obviously didn’t happen for them with the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election being as the Tories lost the seat, neither do I think it was any kind of backlash against the Tories with Johnson now as Prime Minister lurching to the hard-right as I’m not sure people are quite aware of this actually happening & certainly not aware of the pain its going to fucking cause them, I definitely don’t think it’s any kind of massive fuck you to Brexit as the Liberal Democrats are trying to spin it as.

Lib Dems Celebrating the Brecon & Radnorshire By-Election result

Yeah of course the Liberal Democrats ever the political opportunists are going to spin the Brecon byelection victory as some kind of signal of a fuck you to Brexit because the one thing just about everybody knows about the Lib Dems is they’re the party which says BOLLOCKS TO BREXIT! But the Lib Dems & previously when they the Liberal Party have been the party who’ve had party leaders loudly instructing party activists to back to their constituencies & prepare for government because either they’ve won the odd parliamentary byelection or had a positive set of local election results or had a 0.25 bounce in the opinion polls, only later when it comes to a General Election rarely getting the results they thought they would & ending up with egg on their face bitching about if we had proportionate representation blah fucking blah. Okay I do support changing the current electoral system to one of proportionate representation, but that’s not the point of what I’m saying here. What I’m saying is don’t read anything into the outcome of the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election, it’s as I say most likely the result of local issues with the Tory MP who’s now been unseated & certainly bollock all to do with the Lib Dems saying ‘bollocks to Brexit’.

The only thing as a result of the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election which is of definite interest, is Boris Johnson now has a working majority of 1 thanks to the confidence & supply arrangement the Tories have with bigots from Ulster aka the Democratic Unionist Party & well this does have a bearing with all the bullshit regarding Brexit & any crucial votes there’s to be in parliament on the issue. What more is Prime Minister Boris going to promise the DUP to keep them onside? Can Boris in fact keep the DUP onside? Is a General Election more likely now that the Tories working majority has been further cut?

Who Ever Thought Brexit Party Weren’t Going To Be Dickish & Take The Piss When It Came To The European Parliament

Some political pundits have said Liberal Democrat MEPs turning up at last week’s opening of the European Parliament wearing tees emblazed with the slogan ‘Bollocks To Brexit’ was just as embarrassing as Brexit Party MEPs turning their backs during the playing of the European Anthem ‘Ode To Joy, well one major difference with Lib Dem MEPs is they will do a far better job in representing the concerns of constituents whereas all Brexit Party MEPs will represent is Nigel Farage’s ego.

Ann Widdecombe

There have certainly been many a headline in the last few days about Ann Widdecombe using her maiden speech in the European Parliament to compare Brexit to the emancipation of slaves. For fucks sake, Brexiters comparing EU membership to slavery is fucking deluded & definitely inappropriate, definitely fucking insulting to the horrific treatment of the millions who even in recent centuries were sold into slavery & which countries such as the UK & the US built their wealth upon wealth that no slave got a share in, but it’s also insulting to those who are still being sold into slavery to this very day no matter whatever measures are enacted by western governments to prevent human-trafficking & the modern slave trade, oh & a further insult is that if the European Union wanted to take far tougher action to combat the modern slave trade then it would be Brexit Party MEPs voting against such measures that’s if they can be bothered to actually turn up.

Nigel Farage when the leader of UKIP & when a UKIP MEP had one of the worse records of any MEP when it came to attendance at the European Parliament & poor attendance for sessions of the European Parliament was pretty much the case with all other UKIP MEPs, well the new European Parliament might be less then a week old & there are already reports that Brexit Party MEPs are already not attending crucial votes, but quite willing to use the European Parliament to say ridiculous bullshit & make a name for themselves rather what they were elected to the European Parliament to do which is represent the interests of constituents. Of course some will say that Brexit Party MEPs are representing the interests of constituents as his constituents want Brexit to happen which is why he & other Brexit Party MEPs are being dicks in being non-corporative, to which my response is did every person in the European Parliament constituency of South East England vote leave in 2016’s EU referendum, because me thinks not & it’s Farage’s job to represent the interests of ALL South East England constituents not just the those who want to suck his cock in applause for being a Brexit extremist. One needs to ask why is anybody not being seen to ensure Farage is in fact doing his job in representing the interests of ALL his constituents as his job entails, because unless Farage is challenged to do his fucking job then he’s going to get away with taking the piss & believe me along with other Brexit Party MEPs he’s taking the piss!

Nigel Farage

Oh did I forget to mention that Nigel Farage is collecting a salary & pension as a MEP to inflate his own ego rather then actually doing his job in representing the interests of ALL constituents, oh & of course all the other Brexit Party MEPs are also doing likewise, it’s taking the piss (& then some) as well as fucking hypocritical, I mean the likes Farage & all the other anti-EU clowns have over the years accused every other EU politician of being on the gravy train or having the snouts in the trough & yet they’re perfectly happy to be sticking their own snouts in the trough whilst on the supposed EU gravy train possibly more then many a MEP. Oh we utterly hate the European Union but prepared to take its money for not actually doing a job adequately, this is the crux of the Brexit Party, I have to pinch myself that the British electorate are prepared to put up with this hypocritical bullshit.

Chuka Umunna Joins The Lib Dems As Change UK Are Forced To Change It’s Name

Chuka Umunna has joined the Liberal Democrats, well there’s a fucking surprise NOT! It ain’t a surprise because this weighty but very sweary political commentator predicted last week he would when he was amongst 6 MPs who walked away from Change UK & as I also predicted he probably won’t be the only one of those 6 MPs who’ll finally wind up in the Lib Dems

Chuka Umunna a Labour MP for New Year’s, A Change UK MP for Easter, Now A Lib Dem MP for the Summer Solstice but will he be a Tory MP by Christmas

Of course Chuka Umunna is joining the Lib Dems having already left the Labour Party back in February to form the Independent Group which became Change UK, originally with other disgruntled Blairites including Angela Smith & Chris Leslie pissed because they couldn’t oust Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader, okay I could sympathise with Luciana Berger’s motivations for leaving Labour considering the deluge of antisemitic abuse she was being subjected to by supposed Corbyn supporters, but as for Chuka Umunna playing political musical fucking chairs, the fact he’s been a member of three different political parties inside 6 months, it ain’t fucking fair on the voters pf Streatham. The voters of Streatham elected Chuka Umunna thinking he was representing Labour a party which opposed & continues to steadfastly oppose austerity, only now to have Chuka Umunna represent the Lib Dems the party who more than bloodied themselves in aiding the Tories in wreaking austerity upon the most vulnerable in society, so Chuka Umunna are you going to stand down & let there be a by-election to give the opportunity for your constituents to say whether they want a Lib Dem to represent them, whether they want to be represented by a member of a party who at most has given a mealy-mouthed apology for the austerity they helped to inflict when they thought you represented opposition to such cruel opposition. Nah Chuka you won’t give the voters of Streatham the by-election they deserve because you know they’d tell you to fuck off big time because they had thought you were represented fuck off to austerity, oh I’m going to love it, I’m going to fucking love it, come the results coverage at the next General Election & seeing you get electorally beat, deposed, motherfucking defeated!

Who knows if Change UK are in fact the last party Chuka Umunna will walk away from, I’d not say it’s impossible in 3 or 4 months from now he defects from the Lib Dems to the Tories, but as for Change UK which for now is the current latest party which Chuka Umunna has departed, well they’re being forced to change their name after a legal dispute. Apparently petitions website Change.org have threatened to sue Change UK’s remaining MPs if they don’t change the name of their party. I always objected to the name Change UK not because I’m stupid enough to confuse it with Change.org, but due to the fact the last thing Change UK want is change, they wanted the same old Blairite bullshit which had been worn out completely by 2008’s financial crisis if not prior, well I’ve got a few suggestions for alternative names for Change UK, how about ‘Middle Of The Road Mediocrity’, no bollocks to that lets cut to the chase with ‘Disgruntled Blairites United’, actually more apt would be ‘Blairite Malcontent Losers’.

Change UK Implode

Go out on a Tuesday afternoon to protest Donald Trump & his Trumpism brand of fascism only to be receiving news alerts on your return that Change UK had literally imploded as a politically entity because over half it’s MPs (including its leader) had walked away from the party following disappointing results at European Elections.

Yes Change UK the party which was going to be ‘the political party’ which was going to truly ‘change the British political landscape’ has been proven to be the fucking joke I knew it was from its very inception, I mean for starters it wasn’t in fact ‘change’ which Change UK were essentially proposing, it was the same old Blairite bullshit which had been worn out completely by 2008’s financial crisis if not prior to that.

During the BBC’s coverage of European Elections results I do recall Heidi Allen being interviewed & she claimed that the European Elections were just the start of beginning for Change UK, yeah the start of the beginning of the end for Change UK as Heidi Allen is one of 6 MPs who’ve walked away from Change UK following the results of the European Elections. I’m not sure what Chuka Umunna, Luciana Berger, Heidi Allen & the other 3 MPs who’ve now departed from Change UK thought would have qualified as a satisfactory result for Change UK at the European Elections, they seriously didn’t think they were going to do as well as the Brexit Party or even as well as the Green Party did they, if they did think that then they’re seriously detached from fucking reality. I always knew Change UK would get zero MEPs elected at the European Elections, because despite being essentially founded by a bunch of disgruntled careerist politicians they couldn’t even get a party logo approved by the Electoral Commission & then there’s the candidates they selected to stand at the European Elections defecting to the Liberal Democrats, it was one hiccup after another hiccup for Change UK since it’s inception & particularly during the European Elections campaign, at least they did better then UKIP at the European Elections & yes doing better than far-right racist gammon is something to always be proud of.

Anna Soubry

Anna Soubry has now replaced the departed Chuka Umunna as Change UK’s leader, though I suspect Change UK with it’s 5 remaining MPs are very much a sinking ship, they’ve had election candidates seeing the writing on the wall & defecting to the Liberal Democrats & I suspect some if not a majority of those 6 MPs who’ve now left Change UK will sooner or later end up in the Lib Dems, I’ve long thought that Anna Soubry would actually make a perfect Lib Dem as she’s a Remainer & she was just as willing as the Lib Dems were when they were in coalition government to vote for austerity.

The one thing which certainly angers me about Change UK & particularly with Chuka Umunna & Luciana Berger is that they were elected by voters thinking they were electing Labour MPs only for supposed Labour MPs they thought they had elected to defect to Change UK & now for them to leave Change UK to sit as independent MPs, which all means their constituents feel damn well cheated & no doubt confused as fuck as to what their MP actually represents. I know under the British electoral system that one votes for a candidate not a party, however I think this is flawed because it doesn’t hold an MP to represent what voters thought they were going to represent, I really think there ought to be a law that if an MP switches party allegiances they should have to stand for re-election in a by-election.

According Anna Soubry the real reason Chuka Umunna & Luciana Berger & the other 4 MPs left Change UK was they disagreed with putting up candidates for elections & had wanted Change UK to be some kind of protest movement, if true then that’s some serious hypocrisy from Chuka Umunna & Luciana Berger as they were among Blairite MPs within the Labour Party who said they feared if Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader he’d turn Labour into a protest movement rather then a serious political party seeking to form 

Soph’s Opinion On The Results Of The European Elections

Amongst the Brexit Party MEPs elected at these latest European Elections was Claire Fox who was elected in the North West region & Claire is a known Trans Exclusion Radical Feminist who has a gaggle of supporters tweeting #DropTheT rather than #LGBTQunite, but Claire wasn’t the only transphobe/homophobe to be elected as a Brexit MEP, because Anne Widdecombe the 70 year old virgin who’s a Dickensian moralising hag was elected a MEP for the South West region & not only is she anti LGBTQ but she’s also anti-abortion, hmm wonder how Claire as a supposed ‘radical feminist’ feels about sharing a platform with a uber conservative Christian who wants to use the Hand Maid’s Tale as an instruction manual, oh right I forgot Brexit precious Brexit turns people into Gollum like creatures.

Talking of the North West & the South West regions, of course we had far-right shitlords Tommy Robinson & Carl Benjamin standing in those respective regions as candidates & I’m very pleased to report neither were elected MEPs, but unfortunately Tommy received nearly 39,000 votes in the North West which means there’s nearly 39,000 too many gammon imbeciles residing in the North West of England, Carl Benjamin received just over 50,000 votes in the South West & I just can’t believe there are that many assholes in the South West of England who are prepared to vote for a guy who thinks its funny to send rape threats to female MPs. Goody-good that neither Tommy Robinson nor Carl Benjamin are going to the European Parliament rather they’re both more than likely going to court as both have legal trouble which could result in them both receiving custodial sentences, Tommy is to be retried for Contempt of Court & Carl could face a trial for the rape threats he made against Jess Philips & others, yeah I don’t think Carl would be making light of rape if he does get his arse thrown in prison & has to pick up the soap in the shower.

Overall the predictions this weighty if somewhat sweary political commentator made about the results of the European Elections were pretty bang on, though results from Scotland have yet to be declared, I was pretty spot on that the Tories would have a fucking dismal set of election results which is exactly what happened with them getting less then 10% of the vote & the Green Party pushing them into fifth place with the Greens getting more than double the number of MEPs elected, I was pretty bang on about Farage’s Brexit Party cult would come out top & perform better then opinion polls were suggesting & that Labour would perform less well than the opinion polls were suggesting, I just didn’t expect that the Liberal Democrats to do so dramatically better than they’ve previously performed at European Elections & come in second behind the Brexit Party.

I wasn’t the only natural Labour supporter who swapped their vote to the Green Party, both the Green Party & Liberal Democrats benefited at the expense of Labour it appears & as for the reason why, well it’s obviously because Labour have fucked up when it comes to having a clear policy on Brexit, Labour frontbencher Emily Thornberry pretty much said Labour have been shite on the BBC’s Election coverage & she said Labour need to come out in support of a second referendum & she’s not been the only Labour frontbencher who’s said as much in the past 48hrs. I’d certainly prefer Labour did come out fully in support of a second referendum, but I think it more important that Labour just stopped fence sitting & came down one side or the other on the issue of Brexit & be extremely fucking clear & concise what the party’s official policy on Brexit happens to be because the Lib Dems, the Green Party & the Brexit Party all are very clear where they stand on Brexit & all gained votes & therefore gained seats at the European Elections whereas Labour have been clear as mud & as a result lost votes & thus lost seats.

Farage’s Brexit Party cult comes out on top at the European Elections thanks to the support of Russian Rubles

So what influence will Farage’s Brexit Party coming out top at these European Elections have on the direction of British politics? Even before the results of the European Elections were revealed we already were seeing the influence of the prospect of the Brexit Party coming out top upon the Tory Party leadership contest with the leadership candidates having a pissing contest in the news media about who’s more of a hardarse Brexiter, as for Nigel Farage well the likes of the BBC will probably return to giving him a platform as they did when he was leader of UKIP & UKIP came out top at the 2014 European Elections, so he can sew even more hate & intolerance & practice stochastic terrorism & destabilise this country, but hey that’s why he & the Brexit Party are being bankrolled with Russian Rubles.

Predictions On The Results Of The European Elections & The Consequence Of Those Results

I’ll admit I wasn’t going to write anything today as I’m absolutely frigging knackered & have recurrence of tendonitis in the shoulder of my one good arm not effected by cerebral palsy & thus had wanted to rest up, particularly as tomorrow I’m due to go to Comic-Con which is something I’ve been really looking forward to big time! As for the reason despite feeling utter shite I’m in fact writing this, well my trans journalist friend Jane Fae reminded me that I’m weighty if somewhat sweary political commentator & as a political commentator there’s an expectation to write pieces such as these, especially if one wants to get noticed as a political commentator & I obviously I do, so here I’m doped up to my eyeballs on painkillers typing something which at most 10 people will read. People think what the likes of myself do is a dos & a doddle when in fact it’s far from a total fucking doddle & this is why I’ve explained what I’ve explained during this first paragraph regardless of it having nothing to do with any predictions on the European Elections results & the consequence of those results.

Being as the UK goes to the polls on a Thursday & the rest of Europe votes at the weekend, we won’t know the results of the European Elections until Sunday night, so time enough to make some predictions on the results here in the UK & the consequences of those results on the direction of politics in this country, we’ve in fact already seen one major consequence of the possible results with Theresa May announcing she’s resigning, okay May stepping down as Prime Minister has far more to do with her utter incompetency in being Prime Minister, losing the Tories parliamentary majority at the last General Election & thus not being able to deliver Brexit as she promised, but it’s probably been the Tories worse ever local election results & now the possibility that the results of the European Elections could be the worst ever election results for the Tories at a national election which finally had Theresa May stepping down from being Prime Minister.

When the results of the European Elections are known on Sunday, I’m pretty certain the Tories will have been fucking mullered at the ballot box & when I say the Tories have been mullered it’s likely there’ll come fifth behind the Green Party (who of course I voted for) if the last round of opinion polls are anything to go by.

As for who will come out top in these European Elections, well obviously that will be Farage’s Brexit Party cult, no matter Nigel Farage refusing to get off his campaign bus because there were people outside drinking milkshakes & that there were free milkshakes being handed out at his polling station yesterday, funny how it wasn’t milkshakes which got rid of Theresa May but ultimately it was people voting.

There were numerous stories yesterday of EU Nationals who the authorities had made various promises that they’d be guaranteed a vote being turned away from polling stations & thus in fact denied a vote, which of course will favour the Brexit Party coupled with uber low turnout. Even when there’s been really low turnout at previous elections there’s always been voters going in & out of my local polling station, when I went to vote yesterday it was deserted, there weren’t even tellers sitting outside & on past election day I’ve always seen tellers outside my local polling station even when there’s been practically a monsoon raging.

Selfie of yours truly outside my local polling station

Guaranteed Farage’s Brexit Party cult will top the polls at the European Elections, so it’s guaranteed he’ll be back on the BBC’s Question Time program every other fucking week & Question Time will descend once again into Farage Time with the pompous racist practicing his brand of stochastic terrorism.

Farage’s previous party UKIP will be lucky if they get one MEP elected, UKIP’s Carl Benjamin certainly won’t get elected as a MEP in the South West region, my predictions for Carl following the results of the European Elections is he’s likely going to have his Sargon of Akkad YouTube channel taken down along with his other channels because he’s not being giving YouTube & its owner Google any good press over recent weeks & Google will obviously be worried about this possibly affecting their image & their bottom line, I also suspect Carl might be facing a custodial sentence for the rapey bullshit against Jess Philips, yeah lets see Carl make light of rape once he’s had to pick up the soap in the prison shower. As well as Carl Benjamin, the other far-right douchebag shitlord to be standing in the European Elections has been Tommy Robinson in the North West region, there is a slim chance because of low turnout that Tommy could be elected as MEP, though I’m still doubtful he will, his horde of gammon fanboys might very well of gone out to vote for him & attempted to bully other voters to also vote for Tommy, but I reckon by early/mid afternoon yesterday most of his gammon supporters will have retired to the nearest Wetherspoons pub to drink themselves silly as louts usually do.

Now here’s the number the of MEPs Change UK will have gotten elected at these European Elections (drumroll) ZERO! The Lib Dems will likely pick up more seats then they done at previous European Elections but other then Lib Dems who really gives a crap because I certainly don’t.

Whereas I think the Brexit Party will do better then the opinions polls were suggesting, I think Labour will in fact do worse then the opinion polls were suggesting, Labour will certainly do far better then the Tories have done at these European Elections & Labour activists will be patting themselves on the back because the Tories got walloped, I’d warn Labour activists against such complacency as I wasn’t the only diehard supporter of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party who swapped their vote yesterday to the Green Party because of the Labour leadership’s ambiguous waffling on Brexit & though I more then likely will go back to voting Labour at the next General Election & at the next round of local elections others might not.

Today Soph Will Be Voting Green

Today is polling day in the UK for the 2019 European Elections & I’ll being casting my vote for the Green Party. So why am I voting Green Party? Why not Change UK? Why not vote for the Lib Dems? Why not vote Labour when I’ve claimed that if you cut me open I’d bleed Labour?!?!?

It’s not as if I disagree very much with Anna Soubry MP when it comes to opposing Brexit & championing the need for a second referendum, but Change UK are a fucking joke, I mean this is a party who select candidates who then promptly defect to the Liberal Democrats, despite essentially being a bunch of careerist politicians they can’t even organise registering a party logo with Electoral Commission, a party originally formed complaining of racism with the Labour Party only for one of those MPs who split from Labour complaining about racism within Labour to then go on the BBC & make racist remarks merely hours after the initial launch of what’s now become Change UK, it’s the fucking Keystone Cops & then some with Change UK, but my biggest gripe with Change UK is they don’t in fact want Change, they’re a bunch of disgruntled Blairites who want to continue with the Blairite doctrine of neoliberalist capitalism which caused the 2008 Financial Crisis & will keep on reeking misery on the many & only rewarding the few.

I applaud the Liberal Democrats for having entitled their European Elections manifesto ‘Bollocks To Brexit’, but I will NEVER vote for the Lib Dems ever again, not after I voted for them at the 2010 General Election thinking they represented the progressive vote only for them to betray progressives who voted for them by propping up David Cameron’s Tory administration & the austerity that Tory administration inflicted on the most vulnerable in society which has contributed to deaths of over 100,000 disabled people & as a disabled person myself yeah I take it fucking personally.

Labour’s official policy on Brexit seems to change on a daily basis, so what is Labour’s official policy today being it’s polling day for the European Elections, is the official policy on Brexit different for voters in the north who tend to support Brexit then it is for voters down south who tend to oppose Brexit, is it Labour will honour the outcome of 2016’s EU referendum or is Labour will push for second referendum, even Labour’s own MPs are confused as what the party’s official policy on Brexit happens to be & Jeremy Corbyn hasn’t given much clarity during the entire European Elections campaign other to say Labour opposes a No-Deal-Brexit, with whatever else is going on with Theresa May currently she was right when in parliament yesterday she essentially said Jeremy Corbyn had to get off the fence on the issue of Brexit. I know Jeremy Corbyn would rather discuss tackling poverty & climate change & sure those issues are of far greater importance then Brexit, but the European Elections are very much about Brexit & Jeremy’s constantly ambiguous waffling on the issue during the entirety of European Elections campaign has put me off voting Labour today.

The Green Party oppose austerity & oppose Brexit & they’re more likely then Labour to get MEPs elected in the South East region then Labour, I’ll probably revert back to voting Labour at the next round of local elections & at the next General Election because Jeremy Corbyn is pretty bang fucking on when it comes to domestic policy, it’s just on the issue of Brexit where Jeremy Corbyn has lost his way.

So is what I’m doing to today a protest vote? I’d say no because I’m actually voting for the party which is closest to my own political stances at the European Elections & isn’t that how one should vote.

The LE2019 Results Weren’t A ‘Remain Backlash’ But A Return To The Lib Dems Being The Vote Of Protest

Because the Liberal Democrats & The Green Party were the two parties who had the best local election results & because both parties have been the two parties who put the most effort into vigorously opposing Brexit, Remainers have drawn the conclusion that the local election results equal there being a ‘remain backlash’, I’m personally far more cautious in drawing the conclusion these local election results are a ‘remain backlash’, as often said one swallow does not a summer make & I’d wait until after May 23rd & we know the results of the European Parliamentary Elections to draw any conclusions as to whether there’s a definite change in attitude towards Brexit amongst the electorate.

Yes on the face of it, UKIP’s vote collapsing & the two parties who have been most ardent in opposing Brexit coming out on top with net seats gained at the local elections does seem as if there might be a change of attitude amongst the electorate towards Brexit, it’s certainly weird considering time & time again during the local elections campaign it was reported that canvassers from all parties were being met on the doorstep with hostility about Brexit not being delivered, however my explanation for the Lib Dems doing as well as they did is that this is a return to the Lib Dems being the electorate’s favourite protest vote.

The Lib Dems returning to being everybody’s favourite protest vote

Prior to the 2010 General Election the Liberal Democrats were always the electorate’s favourite protest vote, but in the aftermath of the 2010 General Election & the Lib Dems jumping into bed with the Tories, it was UKIP who emerged as the alternate protest vote whilst the Lib Dems were busy propping up David Cameron’s Tory government & losing their deposits at by-elections & having lousy local election results, I guess now enough time has passed since the end of the coalition government & peeps are now willing to vote Lib Dem again, even though I’d never vote Lib Dem ever again after betray the progressive vote back in 2010 & other local misdeeds, I’m actually glad that things seemed to have reverted back to how they use to be prior to the 2010 General Election, I mean I’d much prefer peeps voted for a party which is supposedly progressively slightly left of centre then vote UKIP who’ve I always thought had a far-right stench about them.

As for the Green Party doing well at these local elections, I think it’s a different reason as why the Lib Dems did well, it was a still a protest vote but a protest vote which has come as a consequence of the recent Extinction Rebellion protests in London pushing the issue of climate change up the political agenda.

Me thinks averting climate catastrophe is a far more important issue then fucking Brexit, yet the Tories by the admissions of their own ministers have been fiddling the figures on carbon reduction to make them look better then the real figures actually are, UKIP are so troglodyte they don’t think man made climate-change is a real thing, the Lib Dems say they want to take action to tackle climate-change but in my experience the Lib Dems perpetually say one thing & do another, as for Labour well there’s talk if they get back into government of reopening frigging coal mines (err what the fuck?!?!), so no wonder peeps might have been voting for the Green Party in larger numbers at these local elections, yes to truly make a difference in tackling climate change it takes multilateral action at an international level, but there’s plenty which can be done at a local level to improve the environment & I hope those Green Party councillors elected on Thursday can make a difference.
