Voting for the Brexit party is a wasted vote IMHO.  We get Brexit sorted in a few months,  so what do they do for the next four and a half years? They don't have another meaningful policy on anything so their MPs will just sit there pocketing their allowances and quaffing cheap booze waiting for the next election.

This is not another referendum on the EU but a general election to vote how we want the government to run our country.

I have read quite a few of your political posts on the non footy site, and to be honest I don't believe a word you say as you seem to so blinded by anything that does not fit your narrative.

Like it or not The Brexit party is a mainstream political party (because the majority did not agree with you about the EU) and either you accept their right to hold meetings at BP, or you ban all political parties from having meetings there which would ludicrous.

Feeling passionate about something does not make you right, and the majority of voters do not share your views, but you seem unable or unwilling to accept that simple fact.

They are not a political party in the normal sense of the word. They are a company, mainly owned by Farage who determines whatever policies they are likely to end up with, and therefore being a "member" confers none of the usual benefits that one would expect from belonging to any organisation.

The worrying thing is, Farage is the biggest snake oil salesman ever seen, and his idea of democracy is what suits his needs. So much for taking back control, his party "membership" can't do that.Those unfortunate folk who have been dumped as Brexit Party candidates have found out just what a conman Farage is as they have been refused their £100 deposits to the Party for standing in the first place. That's a cool £31,000 now lining his pockets, an awful lot of very nice claret on very good terms indeed! Those same candidates have all their access to the BREXIT Party database rescinded, so not only is grand theft larceny it's totally blanking the folk who basically idolised him. He will have made some enemies with these actions, but would he care? I think we know the answer to that.

....and yet. A good number of working class folk think the sun shines out of his nether regions because they've been blinded by the lies. If the election does see a Tory administration, a big crashing out of the EU by the end of 2020, I hope these same folk understand their health, wealth, and well being all depend on geting things right.



No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

You don't like Farage which is fair enough. According to your strapline you don't like the Tories either, which is fair enough.

Other people do like both the Brexit party and/or the Tories.  They have a right to hold a political meeting at BP.

I don't disagree, as I think the Brexit party will needlessly split the leave vote, but it is defending their right to hold a meeting at BP that is the issue.

Why don't you lot set up your own political party, go to Westminster to settle your debate and let the rest of us discuss who the bloke in the roller was, getting Fenty to carry his ring binders for him....in the words of Jimmy from Quadrophenia...."BELLBOY!!!!"...😂

You don’t believe anything that Maringer writes even though he often accompanies his posts with evidence and is generally pretty well informed on these subjects. Yet he’s the one blinded by things not fitting his narrative. The hypocrisy is on another level.

Just returning to this point, and this is obviously second hand info from a mate, but I was told back in September there was another interested party in buying the club. My mate is very reliable and was telling me what a current director had told him. Surprisingly a figure of £5M was mentioned but as until this thread this rumour has never raised its head I thought it may be the normal balderdash but your guess is as good as mine.

I will reiterate though that this information came directly from a club Director

That's the mindset of the Brexiteer though. They rely on nostalgia and a misplaced (and down right offensive) belief that we can "rally on the Empire" to get us out of this mess. Whoever presents them with facts, be it the Bank of England, The WTO, Human Rights Experts, Trade Experts they give the same response "THAT'S JUST PROJECT FEAR". You can't reason with these people.

They have yet to contest a General Election. .


Hardly mainstream then and anyway the Brexit party is just a re-incarnation of the UKIP party and I can't recall them winning any seats at the last election either. In fact I think that drunken idiot Farage has tried to get elected to the House on a number of occasions without result hence his fear of failure again leading to his refusal to stand himself



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake
