IT would be easy to be distracted by the stramash at Westminster but it is worth the odd glance at events in Geneva to realise that the breathless drama in London might well be entirely pointless. After all it is in the sleepy Swiss city, not London, that the Brexiters have promised Britannia will once again launch herself as a totally independent and glorious trading state.
Sadly, a bit like everything else to do with Brexit, it is demonstrably not going to plan. This matters because the Brexiters’ Plan B (“We’ll just revert to WTO terms”) is as unfit for purpose as their Plan A.
Guess what? In a staggering development foreseen by literally everybody except Liam Fox, at the end of October countries began to challenge.
This escalated just last week when tiny insignificant economies like Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay, Taiwan, Thailand, the US and Uruguay joined the fun. They signed a joint document demanding the establishment of a mechanism to provide “appropriate compensation” to ensure they do not end up worse off from the establishment of the UK’s schedules.Is this the real crisis in Brexit? Yes it is. The WTO is the arbiter of international trade and the UK is not on the starting grid. Instead of doing the work, Dr Fox tried to find a quick fix and it has failed, …
You’re at 2% in the polls right now you muppet. Your party is marginalised already, because it’s pointless. Any role as ‘champions of Brexit’ has now been ceded to the Tory party you originally came from and all UKIP has left is pointless waffle and directionless xenophobia just for the sake of making noise to pretend someone still cares about you.
UKIP has nothing left. This is typically what happens when a party whose entire reason for existing is to campaign for its own irrelevance gets what it wants.
You have no seats in the House of Commons. 3 in the House of Lords. 4 in the Welsh Assembly. 2 in the London Assembly. 108 local seats in the whole of the nation’s local government.
The only place you do have any say in anything is the European Parliament and when you get your way properly you won’t even have that.
Just let UKIP die on the rubbish bin of history, for fuck’s sake.
Stop trying to make UKIP happen, it’s not going to happen.
Bloomberg Journalist Explains Brexit’s “Big Short” To James O’Brien
So remember when Farage said on the night of the 23rd that it looks like remain won?
It appears that the polls he got from his friends in the financial institutions suggested quite the opposite? So why go infront of the cameras and say something else? Except of course you have a big bed running against GPB Sterling, and would like to maximize ones profit.
This is the charming caller who admitted he was a member of UKIP, but changed his mind. He has since started to study politics and started to learn the truth of the European Union. Let the caller finish to the end, he is really fascinating and honest.
As local election season approaches, so too do the ‘Vote UKIP’ signs in my local area spring forth upon numerous gardens like hideous fucking weeds that you can never seem to permanently get rid of despite how utterly useless and hideous they are.
A healthy majority of Leave voters, it found, claimed that “significant damage to the British economy” would be a price worth paying for Brexit: 61 per cent, compared to just 20 per cent who disagreed. More bizarrely, when the question was made more personal, and respondents were asked would it be worth “you or members of your family” losing their jobs, 39 per cent still thought Brexit was totes worth it – slightly more than the 38 per cent who, like normal, sane people, replied “obviously not”.
