    This is all about the European Parliament election. What does the Brexit Party have? 29 out 751 seats?
    The message Brits sent to both the EU and their own nearly deaf, non-functioning Parliament in that election was the same message that came out in the Brexit referendum.

    So let's suppose Brexit happens. Then what does the Brexit Party do? Farage retires (again), and the Party having achieved its defining objective fades to black.

But if you look carefully at the top left there is an arrow to the right, click on that gives you the party launch video. That sets out what is coming down the line and it is very much more than Brexit or Nigel Farage. https://www.thebrexitparty.org/

    Essentially they are setting out to completely reform our parliamentary system, elected House of Lords, Brexit is a very small part of the offer; Farage is not the lead any more.
    Well, well. What a surprise.
    At the risk of sounding like a stuck CD I will repeat, the Brexit Party is a single issue party. This was the entirely predictable outcome if it wished to remain relevant in any capacity after the Dec 12 election.

    General election 2019: Brexit Party will not stand in Tory seats

    11 minutes ago

    The Brexit Party has announced that it will not stand candidates in the 317 seats won by the Conservatives at the 2017 general election.

    Party leader Nigel Farage said standing candidates across the country could increase the chances of another EU referendum taking place.

    But he said the party would stand against all other parties - and focus on taking seats off Labour...
