    Lol at that.

    I would send a letter back saying "As you know, the Brexit party failed to get more votes than the Lib Dems and Green Party combined, which is certainly awkward because it would appear that brexit isnt as popular as you think it is. In actual fact the EU elections just told us what we already now. That the country is completely split on this issue, so no we don't need you help."

    Just get one of those signs that says "No solicitors".

    It's all pantomime from Farage, designed to keep him in the public consciousness during a period when he's less likely to get the level of screen time he would during an election cycle.

    Odd how this thread is near silent. A party with no policies or promises other than the 'do not say it's name' has nothing to say on anything that's going on. Nothing on NHS reform, prices of pharmaceuticals, WASPI action, the levels of tariffs proposed by the current government in the event of no deal, action on climate change...

    Nothing.

    They stand for nothing.

    That's why just like UKIP they won't do anything in a General Election where people don't just vote on one issue and we all know what snake oil salesman Farage thinks about workers rights and the NHS.

    Until "the Brexit Party" are anything more than "Brexit", this thread should be subsumed into the main Brexit Discussion thread.

    All this thread does is dilute the hilarious torrent of evidence that shows over and over just how much Brexit is a con, and just how many Brexiteers are mugs/shirkers/grifters/bigots.

    It's silent because people like you whine and ***** when we post anything news worthy putting BXP in a positive light. You lot only want a bashing thread, so what's the point? So go ahead and have your little echo chamber

    You seem to have mistaken healthy, rigorous, debate with whining and *****, the two are not the same.

    One is holding news 'worthy' claims to account and challenging them using logic and reason, the other is complaining about something in an emotional manner because the reality makes you feel uncomfortable.

    In case it needs clarifying people have challenged the claims made by the Farage party using logic and reason, people who support the Frage party have failed to rebut those challenges in the same manner and resorted to complaining in an emotional manner because the reality that they can't rebut those claims using logic and reason makes them feel uncomfortable so they run away and hide in the corner only to blame everyone else when they've got over their tantrum.

    They won’t be over until brexit is sorted out either way.

    Your posts add nothing. They are getting more and more inflammatory and insulting by the day. You are actually an embarrassment to the remain cause.

    Well, I for one can't think why Remainers would be getting more inflammatory. I mean, it's not as if we've been called saboteurs, or been told that we hate our country, or been told constantly to 'just stop moaning and get on with it' when we point out quite serious problems with the whole Brexit process? So why should any of us be feeling somewhat frustrated and annoyed by Leavers?

    Oh, wait a minute...

    Every single one of his posts is written in an arrogant “I know better than everyone” manner, and it totally ***** me off. He should spend his time on a dedicated politics forum as he has literally no interest in anything outside of politics as his post history on here shows. At least engage on other subjects on the forum. It is a tech forum after all.

    Its just a culmination of 3 years of people ignoring all facts and logic.

    No it isn’t, he’s been like it since the referendum. He’d barely made a post before 2016.

    No it's not the same when people whine that others use this as an RSS thread and threaten to report posts to mods. There's no debate there

    So you're saying that there's been nothing positive or newsworthy to post then, hence the silence.

    I guess that's inevitable from a party with no manifesto, a leader who's lied and mis-represented the /uK fishing industry, who's fiddled his EU expenses and who's funded by a man who is under investigation by the National Crime Agency for electoral fraud.

    But I may have missed the positive news behind all of that.
