Farage proved full of wind as ‘100,000-strong’ march on Supreme Court is cancelled

A Vox Political reader recently complained because this picture is such an extreme close-up. The point is that the microphone makes him look like Hitler, of course.

What a pathetic figure of fun Nigel Farage really is.

This poster-boy for xenophobia called a demonstration, march and rally for the day the Supreme Court would consider the government’s appeal against allowing democracy into the Brexit negotiations, earlier this month.

He said it was to support the government’s attempt to stop Lords and MPs from delaying Brexit, but in fact it would have been a bid to defy democracy.

The High Court had ruled that Parliament should have democratic oversight of the Brexit process, with a vote on whether to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, that begins a two-year process of decoupling from the European Union.

So it was a march in opposition to democracy, to be led by a charismatic xenophobe. Of course it was going to attract far-right-wing organisations.

And it seems individuals linked to the BNP, EDL and Britain First had signalled they may join the demonstration.

So now – having learned about this, it seems the organisers at Leave.EU have developed a bad case of cold feet and decided to stay at home, rather than put on their marching shoes.

They have said the idea did not get far into the planning stage before being ditched as unfeasible.

You know how this looks, I hope.

It looks as though Farage opened his mouth too wide, said something he couldn’t support, and then walked away.

He blew a load of hot air about how he, personally, was going to mobilise 100,000 people to ensure he would get his way on Brexit – which is, eerily, exactly the same as what Theresa May wants – but could not actually deliver.

Anybody can talk big.

I could say Vox Political is the most influential blog on the planet and has swayed the results of all elections since democracy was adopted, even though the blog was only founded in 2011. I’m sure some people would believe me if I did (I won’t, though. It would provoke unhealthy comparisons with the Freemasons… and The Sun).

Now, with no march taking place, Farage is caught between two unattractive conclusions.

Either he is a far-right-wing would-be dictator who hope to mobilise the masses against democracy.

Or he is a windbag.

Make your choice.

A march on the Supreme Court planned by Nigel Farage and other Brexit campaigners has been cancelled, sources close to the Ukip politician have confirmed.

The demonstration, proposed for the day the court’s judges will consider a crucial Brexit case, was dropped with it never having gone past early planning stages, the source said.

But reports also emerged claiming the event, organised by the Brexit campaign group Leave.EU, was cancelled due to fears that it could be hijacked by far right groups like the EDL and BNP.

At the start of next month, all 11 Supreme Court justices will rule on a government appeal against a High Court judgement forcing Theresa May to give Parliament a vote on triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, officially launching Brexit talks.

Leave.EU had said that during the court case thousands would gather for a protest ending in Parliament Square, within sight of the Supreme Court.

    Farage wasn’t going to attend his so called “March” anyway. He is another right-wing nasty who is full of bluster and little else.

  2. Roland Laycock

    This makes me laugh, was cancelled due to fears that it could be hijacked by far right groups like the EDL and BNP. these groups are farages biggest follower and see him as another Fuhrer.

    a, Farage is not a xenophobe, there is not a single bit of information that can support that claim. b,The march far from being anti democratic would have been a march for the democratic vote to be accepted, not to allow people like blair to attempt to usurp it for personal gain. c, It has been shown that far from the right wing it was mainly left wing supporters who voted leave, and the claims by the minority of the left are wrong. d, Farage was never a part of leave UK which was the Johnson Gove group. Other than that does a court really have the right to overule a governments decision that has been based on the result of a democratic poll, maybe the xenophobic remains could explain why they support an anti democratic body the eu in the first place.

    Yes, “Windbag” sums it up perfectly. But insert the word “Dangerous.” in front of it. His ego trip and lies, together with the newspaper moguls’ use of their mouth pieces have already led our country to the brink of God know’s what lies ahead.
