Nigel Farage Blasts ‘Pipsqueak’ Luxembourg PM

Nigel’s Passport Unboxing

Nigel is so delighted by his new passport that he has filmed an unboxing video for his Facebook fans. The UK will get its unboxing to in just 72 days…

Nigel Gets His Passport Wish

As Britain prepares to exit the EU at the end of October, Nigel Farage has joined thousands of others in receiving his new passport and discovering the words ‘European Union’ have now been removed by the Home Office. Guido hears Nigel is genuinely delighted. Shame it still isn’t blue…

Guido looks forward to Nigel using his new patriotic prop at future campaign rallies…

Brexit Party on Boris’s Case Already

The Brexit Party certainly aren’t planning to give Boris an easy ride, Nigel Farage and Richard Tice have already put out a statement warning that they will hold his feet to the fire on delivering Brexit by October 31st:

Farage: “I wish Boris Johnson well as Prime Minister with his ‘do or die’ pledge to deliver Brexit on October 31. It is ‘do or die’ not just for Brexit, but for the future of the Conservative party too. Does he have the courage to deliver for the country?”

Tice: “The Conservative members who have just elected Boris Johnson, and the voters who support him, are clear in their support for delivering Brexit on time. But can we trust him? He and the party he now leads have just 100 days to deliver. Boris is not well known for honouring his word on Brexit, since he voted for the terrible Withdrawal Agreement after calling it vassalage. The Brexit Party stands ready to fight a general election, contesting all 650 seats across the UK. We are the only party that can be trusted to deliver on Brexit.”

Tory Remainers have become so caught up in the Boris psychodrama that they have forgotten that there are 17.4 million very anxious Leave voters out there. Who have another party they can easily vote for if Remainers stop Boris delivering Brexit…

Saj: I Applaud Nigel Farage

Interesting intervention from Sajid Javid this morning who went out of his way to defend the Brexit Party against spurious charges of extremism and even “applaud Nigel Farage” for leaving UKIP and denouncing it as “thugs and extremists” after it was hijacked by Batten and Tommy Robinson. Olive branch from Team Boris with a general election looking ever more likely…?

Farage: von der Leyen Wants an Updated Form of Communism

In his first speech in the new Parliament, Nigel Farage hit out against EU Commission nominee Ursula von der Leyen before MEPs vote to confirm her in post. Which they will because the whole thing was stitched up beforehand…

“She wants the European Union to take control of every single aspect of our lives. She wants to build a centralised undemocratic updated form of communism… where the state controls everything, where nation state parliaments will cease to have any relevance at all.”

Punchy.

Farage: I’m Not The Right Man to be US Ambassador

Speaking to the Today Programme this morning, the Brexit Party leader played down the idea he could be the next US Ambassador, branding himself “not a diplomat”, and saying “I don’t think I am the right man for that job.” Instead he wants to play a role in forging a blueprint for a big all encompassing trade deal with the US…

MC Farage in the House

This weekend was a difficult choice for some; Glasto or the Brexit Party’s “Big Vision Rally”. In the end Michael Heaver and 5,000 others decided to wave their glow sticks in Birmingham. Still a bit trippy…

MC Nigel entered the hall to people putting their hands up to the sound of Macklemore’s “The ceiling can’t hold us”. The actual purpose was to unveil 100 prospective parliamentary candidates. Don’t think we got given all their names to drill down their social media histories…

Friend or Foe

Nigel Farage…

“I Can Be Boris Johnson’s Best Friend or Worst Enemy… It’s up to Him.”

Jo Brand’s Hate Speech

Last night on Radio 4 (where else?) leftie luvvie Jo Brand fantasised about throwing acid over politicians she doesn’t like. Making the kind of joke that leaves a bad taste, she told Victoria Coren Mitchell “why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?” It’s okay because Jo is left wing so she’s really compassionate…

“Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate, and I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?

That’s just me, sorry, I’m not gonna do it, it’s purely a fantasy, but I think milk shakes are pathetic, I honestly do. Sorry.”

She’s not the first to promote an acid attack. Nigel Farage tells Guido: “This is incitement of violence and the police need to act.”

Nigel Farage At Number 10

Nigel has turned up at Number 10 on Theresa May’s last day to deliver a letter urging the Prime Minister to ramp up WTO preparations without waiting 55 days for another Prime Minister to be installed, and add Brexit Party people to their negotiating team. Despite losing the Peterborough By-Election he’s looking pretty chipper…

Trump: Nigel and Boris are Friends of Mine

Typically subtle diplomacy four days before his state visit…

Farage vs Cable: Brexit Debate Highlights

If you’d predicted three months ago that the UK would be having European Parliament elections and Farage and Cable would be the clear front-runners, no-one would have believed you. One day to go and here we are…

Brexit Party 18 Points Ahead in Final YouGov Poll

The final YouGov/Times poll before the EU elections has the Brexit Party miles out ahead on 37%, almost double the closest challengers in the form of the Lib Dems. On current polling this would make them the largest single party in the entire European Parliament. Labour have slumped to a poor third and are looking nervously over their shoulders at the Greens. The Tories’ misery continues as they fall further to 7%, this was before May’s offer of a second referendum vote yesterday…

The biggest danger now for the Brexit Party is that they can’t live up to the hype – turnout could be a big moderating factor for these elections which Brexiteers never wanted to happen. The other danger is that Farage starts believing his own hype too much, Guido was at the Brexit Party’s London rally yesterday and the atmosphere was electric, the one slightly off-key moment was when Farage took aim directly at Boris Johnson. Many natural Tory voters are happy to see the party get a bloody nose over May’s handling of Brexit, however if Farage’s goal becomes the wholesale destruction of the Tories they may be less on board…

Farage Accuses Electoral Commission of “Outrageous Act of Political Interference”

Nigel Farage has accused the Electoral Commission of an “outrageous act of political interference” for deciding to come and investigate the Brexit Party’s offices just two days before the EU elections. Farage claims that Commission had already given the party a “clean bill of health” and been invited to visit their offices last week, but the Commission said they were too busy to visit, while refusing to put their assessment in writing. A few tweets from Twitter’s resident FBPE cranks and a “powerful intervention” from Gordon Brown later and suddenly the Electoral Commission decide to drop everything and raid their offices the next day…

As Guido pointed out last night, pretty much every single political party and campaign also follows the £500 donation threshold including People’s Vote and the Labour Party, it has been a standard feature of political donations for countless election cycles. The fact that the Electoral Commission suddenly decided the Brexit Party – and no-one else – required urgent investigation over it shows that they either don’t have sufficient understanding of the law they are meant to enforce, or their investigations are not politically neutral. Or more likely, both…

Farage Milkshake Thrower Unmasked

Guido can reveal the identity of the man who threw a milkshake at Nigel Farage in Newcastle earlier: 32 year-old Paul Crowther boasted on Facebook how he was walking with a milkshake back to his office – he currently works as a ‘Customer Service Representative’ at Sky – when he bumped into the Brexit Party march. He’s a Labour Party supporter and a big sharer of Remainer content on Facebook. He also shared a tweet last week calling Theresa May a “wretched little bitch”. He’s now having a word with the old bill for his trouble…

UPDATE: He’s been arrested on suspicion of common assault, according to Northumbria Police.

Farage Milk Shaked

Blunt: Tories Must Come to Electoral Arrangement With the Brexit Party

The Tories are waking up to the stark reality that they face electoral annihilation at the hands of the Brexit Party unless something dramatically changes – and that is not a customs union deal with Corbyn. A new Prime Minister is just the start…

Crispin Blunt set out the basic facts of political life on Newsnight last night – this Parliament will not let Brexit through, this makes a General Election inevitable, without some sort of electoral arrangement with the Brexit Party the Tories are going to be decimated. In terms of maximising the numbers of pro-Brexit MPs, the logic behind a ‘Brexit Alliance’ is there. Can Nigel Farage really be talked down if the momentum stays firmly behind him, or will megalomania be the order of the day? He wants to “change politics for good”, that may mean to him the end of the Tories…

Tory MPs’ Brexit Party Tease

Fair to say that some Tory MPs seem more worried about the rise of the Brexit Party than others, Alan Duncan has gone into panic spinning mode against Farage, more level-headed sorts like James Cleverly are pointing out that the Tories should be asking why their voters are switching rather than vilifying them. Some don’t seem to be too upset at all…

Nadine Dorries praised Nigel Farage’s “fantastic interview” on Marr yesterday, Henry Smith told his local paper that Farage was a better leader than May. Lucy Allan hit back at Duncan’s Marr outburst, having already shared the Brexit Party’s election broadcast the day before:

It’s not the first time Allan’s approvingly shared Brexit Party content, while her Conservative-themed cover photo has also recently disappeared from her Twitter profile and ‘Brexit’ has appeared in her bio. Talk of defections is a bit premature but it’s hardly surprising that many Leave-supporting MPs are ashamed to be Tories right now…

Farage: I Would Go Into Coalition With Corbyn to Deliver Brexit

Speaking to LBC’s Theo Usherwood, Nigel Farage said if he wins a significant number of seats at the next election, he would “do a deal with the devil” to deliver Brexit. If Corbyn or the next Tory leader asked him to go into coalition with them, his price would be delivering on the mandate of 2016: saving £39 billion, leaving the single market, customs union, and jurisdiction of the ECJ.[…] Read the rest
