This is my favourite pic of theirs, Farage on top of his bus during his 'march to leave' opposite one of his tweets.

Oh yes, the Sad Nigel! Around the same time, they were broadcasting footage of him calling for a second referendum whilst he was stood with his handful of fellow marchers having a pint and pretending he couldn't hear it!

This one of Esther McVey is tops too purely because she's in it!

But their most striking one to me, at least until they projected onto the White Cliffs the other night, is this one:

I think they're great! Must chuck them some more money! :)

Looks like we'll be voting in the Euro elections, this is the email that's been sent out to potential candidates.

So it's another extension until Halloween.

Realistically though Labour and the government need to come to an agreement in the next week to avoid European elections.  Now it's clear the government won't allow No Deal, and is prepared to get a consensus with the opposition, surely they'll be able to negotiate something?

Anybody see those people that blockaded an Aldi as part of their Brexit protest?

Also quite worried to read that Tommy Robinson is apparently threatening to try and run in the European elections,

Nigel Farage has registered The Brexit Party.

He didnÔÇÖt, however, register the domain name:

Led By Donkeys is possibly the best thing happening in the whole Brexit saga right now.

Can anyone explain to a self confessed political numpty, if there is any sort of substance to the "last night taught us it's time to get on with Brexit" line that's being trotted out at the minute.

I understand the concept of a protest vote and by god is there plenty to be pissed off about at the minute, but seems fucking barmy to me that anyone is trying to spin a scenario whereby ardent Brexiteers sat at home dissatisfied with the process to date thought fuck it, we'll vote in droves for the two pro-remain parties.  That'll learn em!

The most clear cut conclusion I could take from last night, would be that Labour's ambiguous position has cost them, and of course, the Tories aren't going to be an alternative option for their supporters in the main, which would further reinforce the idea that there was some genuine sentiment to the voting last night, as opposed to just voting for 'anybody else' - the more I think about it, the more my head hurts.

I thought the vote was more a reflection of the public not wanting Brexit rather than wanting to get on with it. UKIP votes down by 70%, Tories down by 25%, Labour down slightly by 10% whereas the Lib Dems (who are pushing hard to remain) were up 110% and Greens were up 550%.

It's a particularly tin-eared take and not very credible, but generally you can say you read anything you like into election results. That's what spin is all about.

Ah, I've just read on BBC that the 'voters have told us to get on with Brexit' line was straight from Theresa May's mouth. Well that explains it then!
