    'Thousands of Tory party members' to defect to Nigel Farage's Brexit Party

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics...-brexit-party/

    Oh Christ, I reckon that Farage has spent the last couple of years turning into a right looney tune.

    But there is no one else. The Tories represent Brussels, the Labour party represents the Fourth International and the Lib Dems represents anyone other than white males. So come the next election I will hold my nose and vote for the Dandruff Kid.

    The news we want is not that Tory members are going to defect to the Brexit party but that Tory MPs are defecting as well .

    Depending on what happens it may or may not take off. Chances are if it does take off it will attract both Labour and Conservative voters. Whether that has any impact on the balance of power between Labour and Conservative remains to be seen. Whether it can take enough of a share of the vote to hold the balance of power remains to be seen.

    If we end up being involved in the next Euro elections I can see this new party being the largest winner - just as UKIP were in the last one. Then once you have got momentum going at the following General Election you have a very good narrative to offer about the establishment parties ignoring the votes of the electorate and you can have drastic effects on the outcome of the vote. It wont be enough to win anything but it will certainly disrupt normal party political life.

    It says thousands of Tory members 'are likely' to defect to defect to the Brexit party. All this would do in an election is reduce the Tory vote slightly, helping Labour.
    29,089,259 people did not say LEAVE
