    Rant Alert! Who should get the landlord vote?

    I’ve not seen him live, he’s refreshingly blunt, but he has the advantage of fighting a single issue. Once the 2015 general election was over and the eu referendum was pretty much guaranteed, he’d achieved his goal , ukip had no future despite the 13% they polled. He was exhausted and decided to step aside.

    The route UKIP then took was beyond his control, he’s quite rightly turned his back on them, they’ll wither to nothing and fold , and good riddance.

    I’ll not be surprised to see him do exceedingly well next week, labour and the conservatives know it, which is why the cross party talks were stopped . Neither wants to be seen to force a deal across the line when the electorate are going to express pretty strong opinions next thursday, it’d be political suicide for both of them.

    Once we get the result the mood of the nation will be clear, if by chance there’s a remain leaning May will stay and blunder on , parliament will accept her deal. Pretty unlikely. If as expected Farage polls well, May will leave and a brexit leaning PM selected .

    what happens then is another matter, neither westminster or the eu want farage and his merry band marauding around brussels, but both will want to be seen to negotiate hard, we’ve already got a notional October leave date, but thats time for plenty of mischief.

    Farage if he does well next week, then needs to register the Brexit Party for parliamentary elections, (really needs to contest the peterborough seat but as its on 6th June, that may not be possible of from his view desirable. ) However he needs some decent people with him.

    The only name that registered with me was Anne Whiddecome, and she is well past her best. He needs some proper political names with him, maybe once he registers as a parliamentary party he’ll get a couple of defections to get the ball rolling. I’d like to see him take about 20 seats in the next general election , be the tories kingmaker and force the tories back towrds their core values.

    Vote NOTA - None of The Above!

    The only party you can trust not to BS you as soon as the election result is in.

    Much as I feel like a protest vote with the Brexit Party, voting for a one-policy-wonder party is not good.

    that depends on their one policy. for the moment there is only 1 issue so 1 policy is enough.

    However, being realistic, even if the Brexit Party won the MEP election how would this change the MayBot and the Withdrawal Agreement?  Would we be destined for a WTO exit or will the MPs' Revoke the Article 50 Bill ?

    All I know is this.

    Let's say I had a worst enemy.

    Someone I had disliked for decades.

    In fact not disliked, but really couldn't stand.

    Then, to make things worse, said enemy decides to key my car, run off with my wife and burn down my house.

    Even after all of that, I would vote for him in an election rather than Jeremy Corbyn.

    I’ll vote Corbyn when you can find me an episode of Morse where,

    he power slides the Jag into the curb playing firestarter at full pelt, jumps out clutching a glass of babycham and brandy, runs up to Lewis declaring undying love and proposes.

    Given this is the EU elections we're talking about, the landlord vote isn't really an issue. All parties have essentially declared it a single-issue election and an unofficial second referendum, and all but one party has been very clear on where they stand on Brexit. I have read most of the junk which comes through the door and this is where each of them stand:

    Conservatives: vote for us if you back Brexit and support Theresa May's deal.

    Brexit Party: vote for us if you back Brexit  but not Theresa May's deal (be aware this actually means a No-deal Brexit, but they are trying to collect people who support a deal but not the Mayday deal).

    Change UK: vote for us if you support a second referendum and will respect the result even if it does not fall your way.

    Lib Dems/Greens/SNP: vote for us if you want to stay in Europe.

    Labour: Vote for us if you want a schitzophrenic, rudderless party where 98% of the members want to remain in the EU but calls itself a Brexit party because it's leader favours leaving.


    No single party is polling above about 30% at the moments and it is looking like the combined votes of Conservative/Brexit won't achieve any more than about 45%. However, the Pro-remain party's combined votes won't achieve more than 50% either because the Labour Party faithful will vote for them because they are Labour. As a prima facie second referendum it won't reveal whether the country majority wants stay or go, although Nigel will claim victory anyway. All it will tell us is that the Conservatives have destroyed themselves through bad management and bad, well, everything - something we don't need an election to tell us.

    some conservatives have already recognised that 2 million landlords (and voters in their families) are upset with their policies, and when you add the Brexit backlash, the Conservatives will be cut down drastically.
