Interesting to see the anti-brexit bile here ... with no real counter. @1 "Every brexiter bangs on about they knew exactly what they were voting for" -- Do they? Where? Who? As a Brex, like many, I didn't. I had no idea how much the EU had their talons and claws into our system, nor how little we had control over the EU. Now I do, I am horrified and far more inclined to leave.

4 former Brexit Party members are asking people to back a different party to deliver the thing their own former Party stands for? Let's be honest, it was a given that any Rees-Mogg was going to be a bit of a low life, seems to run in their family. I am no fan of the Brexit Party or NF, but it just shows yet again that 99% of Politicians are only in it for themselves No morals whatsoever!

These people have the cheek to say that Remainers have been preventing Brexit when it is as obvious as the day is long that it is splits among the Leavers as to what Brexit means that has caused the delays. This leaves the sad, old Tory Farage propped up by a bunch of Trots.

"44. so every brexiter bangs on about they knew exactly what they were voting for but yet the 3 "brexit" parties can not agree on what type of brexit they want." That's because they are politicians. There is only one type of Brexit - not being in the EU, not giving them any money, not taking all their Regulations and Directives, it's that simple. But to a politician everything is "complex".

UKIP and TBP purpose was to give a focal point for the large undercurrent within the UK of unhappiness with the EU. As Brexit is now likely to be achieved through a Tory victory it seems logical that they may well chose to change allegiance especially given NF decision to not contest Tory seat which is in effect saying vote Tory so any indignance from him at this is a bit rich!

Like him or loathe him, nigel farage is the most charismatic and confident politician of his age. If he were leader of either of the main parties they would have a landslide victory.

@57 Edington878 "nigel farage is the most charismatic and confident politician of his age." He follows a long line of charismatic and confident politicians: Mussolini Amin Mugabe Ho Chi Min Mengistu Haile Mariam Saddam Hussein etc.

I am a bit confused about the apparent Conservative and Brexit Party pact on Brexit... why is Farage disagreeing at every apparent opportunity with the Conservative party?! By the way, isn’t Brexit meant to be bad for this country?!...

I really hope Brexit can be confined to the history books as a blip in the road, along with the party and Farage.

81. Posted by rocktapper on 2 minutes ago Brexit as was UKIP - the poor man's Tory Party... To be fair there also the "Tory Party" for the exceedingly rich men as well.
With only a week to go it has finally become crystal clear for voters To Leave vote Tory To Remain despite a democratic vote deciding that we should Leave vote Liberal Undemocratic If still undecided vote Labour and spend the next 5 years sitting on Corbyn's fence terrified of the responsibility of actually making a decision Removed

Farage defends not standing in remainer conservative MPs seats play this in any way you like this cannot be justified and stinks of the highest level of corruption . from a party that took donations off its members to run in every seat I would call that fraud . look for big donations to the Brexit party to see who bought Farage off For sale Nigel Farage

The Conservative party has now become in reality the negative stereotype of left-wing portrayal: bigoted, ideology-driven, promoting class interests, populist, xenophobic and fundamentally dishonest. Of course former Brexit MEPs will feel at home there!! Shame is that Labour have simultaneously become a similarly unelectable left-wing stereotype! God save this country from both of them!

Why does the BBC continue to give publicity to Nigel Farage? He is a DJ on a regional phone in radio show who has tried and failed six times to become an MP and is not even standing for Parliament.

You vote for a party in a regionUK in EU elections not a person. The MEPs are selected from their Party list - if an MEP choses to leave a party they could be legitimately replaced by the next person on the list.

If they weren't happy with Brexit Party Policy they should've gone through the democratic Party Procedures and raised their issues in a democratic way. Oh no, they couldn't could they, as there's no internal Party democracy, there's just Nigel making all the decisions, so really those who selected them as candidates are to blame. As I understand it they were all handpicked by..............Nigel!

The ease with which Farage’s mutineers have switched to the Johnson Fan Club is alarming. Given that Farage favours a disaster Brexit (for us, not him) it means that his ex-candidates like Johnson’s Brexit, ie disaster for the rest of us. The pity is that some voters think that Johnson/Farage are men of the people who are on our side. You should hear what J and F say about us behind our backs.

I was a Brexit Party supporter - I was desperate for something better in UK politics. Paid my £25 and felt slightly hopeful. I was wrong - I was utterly stupid to allow myself to be duped. I won't get fooled again. Oh, I'll still come on here to moan and complain about politics, but after nearly 50 years I'll never vote again. British politicians are cr*p - I'm done with them.

4 former Brexit Party members are asking people to back a different party to deliver the thing their own former Party stands for? Let's be honest, it was a given that any Rees-Mogg was going to be a bit of a low life, seems to run in their family. I am no fan of the Brexit Party or NF, but it just shows yet again that 99% of Politicians are only in it for themselves No morals whatsoever!

These four turncoats illustrate the lack of morality & loyalty now endemic with politicians & the people concerned should be ostracised for creating even greater distrust of all politicians. Farage should not have succumbed to the Countries best interest gambit & had the Brexit Party contesting all seats lets hope sufficient Brexit MP's are returned to influence commons proceedings -OK
