The 2019 European Elections: Part 1
It was Theresa May’s failure to deliver Brexit, which has resulted in the Brexit Party receiving huge momentum. The European Elections will give voters a chance to cast their verdict on the fact that Britain is still in the European Union nearly three years after voting to Leave.
With Brexit almost overturned by the pro-EU Establishment, British voters are forced to have to campaign for the 2019 European Elections, which are scheduled to take place on the 23rd May. The political map has changed. In 2014, UKIP won 24 seats. Since then, UKIP’s fortunes have taken a turn for the worst with big figures like Nigel Farage leaving the party. 3 UKIP MEPs defected to the Brexit Party. They were Jill Seymour, Margot Parker and Jane Collins. They didn’t like Gerard Batten developing relations with former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson or UKIP’s focus on (or you could say obsession with) Islam.
This is where the Brexit Party comes into play. The Brexit Party stands for delivering on the referendum result, which is something the pro-EU elite are still refusing to deliver. It went from nothing on the day of its launch on the 12th April 2019 to 1st place in the polls. As of mid-April 2019, they are on 22% of the vote. That is ahead of Labour and the Conservatives. The reason is clear: Brexit has been betrayed by the political class who (most of them anyway) voted to Remain in the 2016 EU referendum.
The Brexit Party is led by the former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage. It also has a number of high-profile individuals standing in the European Elections as an MEP. They include Former Conservative MP and Shadow Home Secretary Anne Widdecombe, Annunziata Rees-Mogg, Richard Tice, June Mummery, Dr Alka Seghal, Business and Charity Director Matthew Patten, Award winning charity worker and former nurse Christina Jordan, Westmonster’s Michael Heaver, businessman Lance Forman and left-wing journalist Claire Fox and Environmentalist, Award Winning 3x Afghanistan Veteran, James Glancy. The Brexit Party has people from a range of backgrounds who all want Brexit to be delivered.
In terms of fortune for the Brexit Party, it has quickly received 60,000 paid supporters. The majority of Conservative Party members are planning to vote for the Brexit Party. According to two surveys of Conservative Party members conducted by ConservativeHome, a whopping 79% of Conservatives want Theresa May to resign. Just 219 in a survey of 1,132 were against May announcing her departure. More than 60% of Conservative Party members polled are planning to vote for Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party.
How did all this come about? It was Theresa May’s failure to deliver Brexit, which has resulted in the Brexit Party receiving huge momentum. The European Elections will give voters a chance to cast their verdict on the fact that Britain is still in the European Union nearly three years after voting to Leave.
CUK openly brags about overturning Brexit just as Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn are trying to overturn the vote on the sly and sometimes openly. They stand for overturning Brexit and keeping to the status quo whereby only the neoliberal elite benefit. Only 4% of Conservative Party members plan to vote for the CUK, which you could call a joke. CUK started out as the Independent Group, which was a group of Labour and Conservative MPs ranging from Chuka Umunna to Anna Soubry who wanted to overturn Brexit. They want another vote on EU membership, which they want to rig. This is despite the fact that those in CUK don’t want a public vote on themselves through a by-election. Why? They know they will lose, and badly. They are standing in the European Elections. One of the candidates in CUK is an ex-BBC journalist and a keynote speaker Gavin Esler, who called for a second referendum to stop the UK leaving the EU.
CUK already received a major blow. The remarks by Ali Sadjady were unearthed on the same day they launched their election campaign. Writing on Twitter in 2017, the former Conservative, who had been due to stand as a candidate in London at next month’s election, said:
‘When I hear that 70% of pick pockets caught on the London Underground are Romanian it kind makes me want Brexit.’
Don’t expect this to be on the MSM. If a Leaver said something like that, the MSM would be all over it like a pack of hyenas for a week. Trust me. On the 25th April 2019, reports came out from Politico that a second candidate for CUK dropped out of the European election race after it emerged that he had previously tweeted derogatory comments about women and minorities. Joseph Russo, who was Change UK’s lead MEP candidate for Scotland, quit the race after screenshots of now-deleted tweets showed him posting, for example, about being afraid of black women. Again, imagine what would have happened had it been someone in Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party. It would be news for a week.
