Would be a big deal if it happens. Whats going on? Didnt think Farage was very popular.

Nigel Farage's Brexit Party is on course for major success in the European election later this month, and would alter the landscape of British politics if a general election were held in the U.K., according to new polling.

A poll by Opinium for the Observer puts the Brexit Party on 34 percent of the vote — more than the Conservative and Labour parties combined — in the Europeam election in late May. That's an increase of 6 percentage points for Farage's party since the last Opinium poll, on April 23. Labour comes in second on 21 percent (down 7 percentage points since April), with the Tories on 11 percent of the vote, in fourth place behind the Liberal Democrats. The new pro-Remain party Change UK is on 3 percent support, behind the Greens, UKIP and the Scottish National Party.

They've already fallen to Islam unfortunately.

The Muslims accomplished what Hitler failed to do, destroy Britain.

It's quite bizarre. Farage and his newly minted party, (which incidentally is a Private Limited Company based in the USA, offers only associate membership with no voting power, and costs £25 to join) has no policies, no Brexit plan (other than leave), No manifesto, and he refuses to answer questions on things he has said, yet they're soaring in the polls.

Just caught this Lesley Riddoch commentary from yesterday.

Farage is expanding to fill the vacuum created by the implosion of the Tory party. Appalling though it may seem/be, Johnson is a credible candidate in a party with an embarassment of incompetence at the top.

I hate to say it, but UK politics sound as messed up as the US. Is there sanity any where?
