BY JAMIE FOSTER Last week Home Secretary Sajid Javid made a speech about extremism in which he singled out Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party saying they are not extremists. In what is seen to be an olive branch held out to the Brexit Party, Javid praised the Brexit Party and Nigel Farage for leaving UKIP behind when it changed to a “far right” party. … Continue reading A Brexit Party Coalition?
BY JAMIE FOSTER What to do about the Brexit Party? As Nigel Farage addressed a rally of 5500 of his supporters on Sunday, the question once more raised its head about how the Tories should deal with the challenge of his new and vibrant party. Farage and his party – so they say – will be targeting at the next General Election both Tory and … Continue reading A Brexit Party Compact?
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN “What we see the public sees,” so claimed a friend this week, discussing the horror show that Labour (and the non-conservative part of the Conservative Party) has become. His theory was that the general public know that Corbyn is a terrorist-sympathiser and an anti-Semite; that Emily Thornberry is a hypocritical prig; that anti-McDonald’s John McDonnell is a rabble-rouser with a penchant for … Continue reading The Blind Labour Timebomb
BY GARY MCGHEE The Electoral Commission is both biased and pernicious. It is stuffed with Remainers who are clearly out to get Brexiteers, as evidenced by the vile persecution of Darren Grimes. Further clear evidence of this bias is outlined here by Jacob Rees Mogg. The occupation by Electoral Commission officers in the Brexit Party offices for SEVEN HOURS on the eve of the European … Continue reading Decommission The Electoral Commission
CSM EDITORIAL Despite the Brexit Party’s extraordinary victory in the European elections, it would seem that the message has not sunk in yet with Camp Remoan. Aside from continuity remainers claiming victory on Sunday night (delusion has no limits), the likes of Jeremy Hunt are now coming out against a WTO exit, and EU diehards like David Gauke warn the Conservative Party against populism and … Continue reading Peterborough Up Next
CSM EDITORIAL Nigel Farage has said that a vote for his Brexit Party would be a vote for a WTO Brexit – his name for a no deal Brexit. He also said that if his party won big in the EU elections, they should have a place at future talks with the EU. Farage is something of a hate figure with Conservatives being seen as … Continue reading Farage Merits Negotiating Place
BY ALEXIA JAMES It’s good news that former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe has announced she is set to return to politics – for the Brexit Party. Widdecombe stands for many of us when she says she would still vote Conservative in the upcoming local elections (no reason to get rid of decent Conservative councillors who are likely personally to vote for the Brexit Party in European … Continue reading We’re with Widdecombe
BY PAUL NEWALL I have always admired Nigel Farage. His three-decade campaign to drag us out of the EU and that ultimate success in winning the EU referendum makes him the most influential politician that has never been elected to Parliament. That said, I wonder now if his ego will prolong the lives of the two major political parties beyond their best before dates. I’ll … Continue reading Democratic Deficits
CSM EDITORIAL The announcement by Nigel Farage that his Brexit Party is now a viable choice for the next European Elections in May – should it need to be used – is key. Should there be any significant delay to Brexit – and the European elections be fought by UK politicians (let’s hope not) – then the Tories and Labour can expect to lose most … Continue reading The Brexit Party Warning Shot
