Brexit Party

Recommended Posts

Thought we needed a new thread for Brexit Party shenanigans. A nice tweet to start it all.

We already had one, but the moderating overlords went all farage on us.  

😎


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I’m trusting you lot. If all else fails, it’ll be a thread for dross that’d contaminate good threads.

What about a cup of tea with Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish National Party?

I went over that line ages ago commenting that Farage was a fascist.

No, Farage himself crossed that line three years ago when he decided to lead his campaign with a poster that was a direct copy of a Nazi propaganda film.

It's quite simple, if you don't want to be classed as a fascist, don't use fascist imagery to promote your cause.

This image seems to be doing the rounds currently with an explanation saying the guy in front of the flag is a young farage but i can not find out it's veracity - anyone know if it is correct or "fake news" ?

Several people who went to school with Farage have been on social media asserting that's not him in that photo. They do, however, describe the young Farage in the same way Shadow and some of his old teachers have.

I don't think it looks like young Farage as I knew him either.

I deleted the pic, it's very likely to be a fake and falls right into the libel category.

I( don't think there's any doubt about that.  If it sounds like a fascist, looks like a fascist, and acts like a fascist it probably is a fascist.

I received a brexit party flyer through the door this morning, going on about how the UK voted to leave in the biggest mandate in UK history. Funny how 52-48 for remain wasn't going to be a big enough mandate for him.

Another indication of fascism.  As Dr Goebbels said, if you tell a lie often enough, it becomes the truth,

Absolutely. An out and out lie. It's not even in the top 5 of "biggest mandates".

The echo chamber cabal are in full swing on this thread!

By all means deride Farage and his party, just as on the Tory and Labour equivalents, but face up to reality.

Why has Farage and his party been spawned, phoenix like in the last few months?

Why are millions of people going to be voting for his party, are they all fascists and racists, every one of them?

What do you hope to achieve by derision and ridicule of his supporters other than that holier than though glow after posting a witty response on a rugby forum?

The majority of posters on here just don't get it. They just stick their heads in the sands and don't face up to why millions of decent, normal people will be giving their support to him on polling day. Carry on with your name calling and labelling whilst living in your cosy liberal bubbles, the problem will not go away by posting links to twitter accounts and the like.

Why are they voting for him then?

Is it because he offers simple soundbites that on closer inspection prove to be lies or at best unworkable?

Is it because we have had 40 years of unchallenged lies from those opposed to our integration and membership of the EU?

Is it because our press and social media is being manipulated by shadowy forces outside our own country?

Or is it because the Public School Educated Neo Fascist Holocaust denying Hypocritcal hate monger is a true man of the people who only has the best interests of the British People at heart?
