Nigel Farage: This image describes his politics better than words.

Nigel Farage: This image describes his politics better than words.

Isn’t mass mobilisation behind a single charismatic leader a symptom of fascism?

Yes it is. Anybody considering attending Mr Farage’s rally should think very carefully about that.

And isn’t the Brexit court case about whether there should be democratic oversight of the Brexit process, rather than blind submission to the dictatorship of the Conservative Government?

Yes it is. It has nothing to do with delaying Brexit, other than tangentially – with delays possible if democracy is not upheld.

And isn’t it pointless having ‘Leave’-supporting barristers in court when the case is not about whether the UK should remain in the EU or leave it – that matter having been settled by a referendum?

Correct. The case is simply about how the process of leaving the EU is managed. The high court ruled in favour of democracy; Mr Farage opposes it.

And isn’t the ‘Leave’ campaign facing the possibility of court action against it, based on claims that it knowingly misled voters in the previously-mentioned EU referendum?

Yes. Yes it is.

Oh dear. Knowingly misleading voters, opposing democracy, mobilisation of the masses… perhaps someone should search Mr Farage’s house for his copy of Mein Kampf.

Nigel Farage is planning to lead a 100,000-strong march to the Supreme Court to coincide with the start of the Government’s attempt to stop peers and MPs delaying Brexit.

The march, organised by the anti-European Union campaign Leave.EU, will end with a rally in Parliament Square within sight of the court building where judges will be hearing the appeal.

The campaign group is planning to “crowd fund” £100,000 from its supporters to pay for barristers to represent Leave supporters in the court action.

This will mean that the anti-EU supporters will have their own barristers in the legal action, who can challenge claims made by Remain supporters and even the Government.

Mr Farage, the interim leader of the UK Independence Party, and other prominent Leave supporters are due to lead the march from Trafalgar Square along Whitehall to Parliament Square.
