    I am a Pom and an Brexiteer Nigel Farage is not the answer, there is only one thing Farage is interested in is Farage. He has no coherent plan for leaving, leaving without a deal is a dreadful economy destroying notion

  2. 2dogs

    The EPP will still end up of holding the balance of power.

    It’s official platform states that it is for subsidiarity, like the constitution of the EU itself, but I have never seen them do anything but pay lip service to the ideal.

    The. Libs forgot their base a long time ago. They believe being 2” to the right of Shorten makes them worth voting for. Mark Latham’s first NSW parliamentary speech should have been Morrison’s. No renewables, no PC nonsense. I wonder why the Libs run scared of the press and the Twitter mobs and continue to fund the ABC.

    Dorothy, when the Brexit referendum was won Farage resigned, his job done (so he thought). That shows me his mission to leave the EU was the important thing, not him.

    Bring on the no deal Brexit!

  5. Keithy

    Of course what is critically important is that Brexit actually happens.If not then democracy will officially be dead and buried.It was obvious the EU would make it difficult but if the will of the people is bypassed on this then Civil war is the only option left.

  6. Robber Baron

    Dorothy, stop watching the BBC or the ABC. Make up your own mind.

    No deal is the only way to go. It’s the EU that has the massive trade surplus with Britain, so it’s the EU that has everything to lose. Britain holds all the cards. The Tories were foolish in the extreme to make a remainer their leader.

    Why is Teresa May still GB PM?

    Exactly and which is why Farage is way ahead. The Dismal Tories can’t even get rid of the fox in their own henhouse. I am horrified at their reasoning that she is the best they have and it seems so are a large chunk of UK voters.

    The elites are so elite and high up in the stratosphere they don’t even see the little people from Olympus.

    Crossie, I believe the Tories don’t have a mechanism for another vote within 12 months of a failed leadership spill.

    If the Liberal Party had those rules then Turnbull would still be there. They should learn from us. Learn or die.

    leaving without a deal is a dreadful economy destroying notion

    It’s the only option. Any so called deal with those corruptocrat spivs in the EU will result in Britain being screwed over, so the simplest option is to tell them to sod off.

    Given how long ago the vote was and that the no deal deadline has passed (twice), why is this interminable sham and slow motion train wreck still dragging on?

    That’s your answer to the Farage’s “mysterious” surge in popularity right there.

  15. Dr Fred Lenin

    This could spell the end of the rule of the self appointed elites . Just imagine the damage a big bunch of Brexiteers could cause in the EU aparat ? they could encourage other nations to go the same way and bring the whole u.n. Communist fascist globalist facade crashing to ruin . If they had half a brain they would facilitate the UK leaving on good terms to keep them quiet and keep hold of whats left.but they are socialist elitists and common sense is unknown to them . The old bird in the hand parable woul go right over their heads .
    This rebellion could spread through the Western world ,the USA needs to get rid of the corrupt decromats mand a few years of shorten stupidity will nake it easy to changs here . We can live in hope.

    Zyco, that is complete bullshit and your posting of a white nationalist propaganda video as “evidence” is disgraceful.

  17. Fisky

    Zyco sounds like another Russian troll. Remember srr?

  18. Diogenes

    Dorothy,
    the EU is negotiating in bad faith. They wish to punish those pesky English with their stupid common law and ANY deal will leave the UK demonstrably worse off than a no deal as they wish to head off popular demand for a Frexit, Grexit, Itexit etc.

    There is an old military axiom, there is no plan that survives contact with the enemy, that is why it is impossible to fully plan and thus the problems will be solves as they arise, and the need to remain flexible is important. Also 3rd party actions eg the fracas with oil in ME that is currently occurring, the tariff war between US & China will have enormous implications

  19. Rococo Liberal

    I wonder why the Libs run scared of the press and the Twitter mobs and continue to fund the ABC.

    A very pertinent question. It seems clear that with one great shrug, we could shake the incubus of the howiling lefties off our backs and enjoy a much happier existence.

  20. Dr Fred Lenin

    Privatise alpbc /sbs ,float on the ASX,pay all staff entitlements and pensions in shares in the company ,lease buildings and equipment back to company ,and let the bastards go for it. Impose strict licensing conditions on tv channels ,make 9 unload fauxfacs and let it sink in bankruptcy . With these sanitary measures the media would be a cleaner environment .

    From here to Joannenova to the guardian which had links only to other guardian pages and I’m done trying to find out which website hosted this online poll.
    Fake news.

    Really?

    Nigel Farage warned on Friday Britain was “far less safe” and exposed to Cologne-style sex attacks because of open-door immigration.

    Speaking in London, the Ukip leader said it would be “impossible” for Britain to control immigration if it remains an EU member state.

    He added that he believed 5,000 jihadis posing as migrants had made it to Europe via Greece over the last 18 months.

    Mr Farage argued whether “it is any wonder” the country also faces a housing crisis, that green-belt land is threatened, and the burden to find more primary school places is growing.

    Or for those preferring video. Nigel Farage: Mass migrants to spill over open borders while UK in EU.

    Do an internet search for the Breitbart headline in JoNova’s piece. You’ll get links to e.g. a Daily Mail article that sets it all out. (I didn’t see the actual Breitbart article because of course they’re shadow banned.)

    A no deal Brexit would create a huge economic shock, but if (and this is a big “if”) the UK takes the opportunity to return to a proper free market economy they could well end up much better off.

    And even a no deal exit is better than either staying in or any of the “deals” that have been offered to date.

  25. Dr Fred Lenin

    I see some “conservative”UK career polliemaggots are oroposing an alliance between the turnbull like “conservatives “ and the Peoples Brexit Party , anything to save their miserable “careers” . The Peoples Brexit Party would be silly to get involved with these manipulative scum ,they would just try to destroy Brexit from within .
    One commentator said “they have no policies” thats a damn fine thing any lying political scum can come out with a pack of lies and promises they never intend to keep ,only an honest person would consider lies more important than the main thing which is A Real Brexit , thats their raison d’ etre nd they will stick with it ,lies are for lawyers , not honest concerned citizens .

    Total threat hijack: allegations against Bill Shorten come back to life. I expect this’ll get deep-sixed by the legacy media, as with Gillard’s antics. Usually November Surprises come from the left. Will be interesting to see whether this has any impact on the newest generation of low-information voters.

    I wouldn’t watch the ABC or the BBC if my life depended on it .
    Did you miss where I said I was a BREXITEER which means I am in favour of leaving .
    Leaving is a process not an event
    As bad as Mrs May’s deal the politicians should have voted for it, the UK would be out by now
    Mrs May(in the first place) should have gone for the Norway style option ie staying in the EEA and EFTA giving the UK access to the single market guaranteeing very limited restrictions to trade with the EU, as do Norway , Iceland and Lichtenstein, of course the UK would have fashioned an agreements to suit the UK .
    But alas it’s too late for this now.

    Allegations against Bill Shorten

    If these allegations had been made about Tony Abbott, everybody in Australia would have heard every possible detail about them at least a hundred times over. As it is, there’s probably fewer than one person in a thousand who has ever heard a single thing about them.

    This is why we need to spend billions on a public broadcaster – so that important current news like this gets proper reporting and analysis, instead of being drowned out by trivia or covered up by the big end of town.

    As it is, there’s probably fewer than one person in a thousand who has ever heard a single thing about [it].

    We’ll see about that . . . there are still a few days to go before the election.

    From here to Joannenova to the guardian which had links only to other guardian pages and I’m done trying to find out which website hosted this online poll.

    Look at Joanne Nova’s site again. The quote contained clearly states that the pollster was Opinium.

  32. duncanm

    As that ad points out – the issue is now bigger than Brexit.

    The politicians of the UK asked the people a question. They didn’t like the answer, and if they fail to proceed with Brexit, democracy in the UK is broken.

  33. Nato

    @Tim Nielson. No. I will not. Mr Champion got suckered by confirmation bias. I’m a fan, not a sycophant.
    @ 2dogs. I checked opinium.co.uk You obviously did not. “for the Observer” is a good hint, but relying on that innuendo is 1/3 of the political Media’s unholy triumvirate. we’re into the land of rumour, innuendo and unnamed sources. Faaaaaake.

    Why are cats defending the integrity of online polling?

  34. Nato

    That might have come out harsher than i intended. We’re all human. We all do it. I just have the time and inclination to hunt for details and data for …
    Squirrel!

  35. 2dogs

    @ 2dogs. I checked opinium.co.uk You obviously did not.

    Uh, the link to this page is from Opinium’s front page. It in turn has the data here.

    The whole idea of a “deal” is to protect the power of the bureaucrats in Brussels. The U.K. voted to leave the EU. That’s it!!

    The sky won’t fall in. The U.K. Now has to freedom to trade without impediment with the rest of the world. The biggest losers in this will be the EU if they don’t adjust their restrictive market access.

    Do you think that German motor vehicle manufacturers are going to be happy losing access to the UK market? We are going to see that the EU is a giant house of cards. That is why they are desperate for a “deal”. It’s all designed to maintain the facade.

    A big vote for the Brexit party in the EU elections is their worst nightmare. The emperor has no clothes!!
