‘Leave alliance’ in 317 constituencies as Brexit Party announces it won’t challenge Tories

Nigel Farage: You know the saying – everything before the ‘but’ is meaningless.

Nigel Farage has announced that the Brexit Party is allying itself with the Conservatives in a bid to ensure the Labour Party cannot form a government.

His party will not challenge the Conservatives in the 317 constituencies where the Tories won seats in the 2017 election.

Mr Farage said this was to prevent a second referendum taking place – signalling that he fears the British public has changed its collective mind and would vote to remain in the EU after all, given the chance.

This is obviously an attempt to attack democracy. Why should voters not have a chance to change their minds – or confirm the 2016 decision?

And many will suggest that this puts more pressure on Labour – but this is ridiculous.

Labour’s challenge remains the same – to persuade the public that its policies are better for the UK than those of the Conservatives.

And there can be no argument against this.

On Brexit alone, the Tories have had more than three and a half years to “get Brexit done”, as their slogan states – and they have completely messed it up.

Their leader, Boris Johnson, is implicated in a series of scandals – over racism, Russian interference in UK democracy, support for Jennifer Arcuri, and probably other things that This Writer can’t remember off the top of my head. He is a national embarrassment.

Their economic policies will plunge the UK back into economic crisis because they haven’t done their sums properly.

Their health policies have put huge amounts of care into the hands of private companies, meaning people have to pay for many treatments now – and their availability has become a postcode lottery. In the future, we can all look forward to the possibility of bankruptcy if we need serious procedures under the American-style system the Conservatives are trying to bring in by stealth.

And their benefit system has plunged millions into poverty and despair, with thousands upon thousands of deaths related to their cuts.

And the Brexit Party has indicated its support for these wreckers.

This is not a boost for the Conservatives. It is an argument to vote against them.

And it is a huge encouragement for people to vote Labour instead.

    From what I understand to date, this coming election was primarily about Brexit, until they killed the nuclear deterrent that was a no deal hard Brexit.

    Now the choices are between staying with a unilateral surrender of a deal that turns us into a slave state of the EU, revoking Article 50 so that at least we remain as a member state of the EU with our rights and privileges remaining intact, or the hope that Jeremy Corbyn really can bring about a more reasonable compromise deal with the EU (which he has already been doing unofficially behind the scenes).

    So basically, Brexit is dead, as whichever way it goes we aren’t leaving the EU. As a result, people are finally starting to consider their vote on the more important pressing issues affecting this country, having become utterly fed up with Brexit.

    The way I see it, the Tories had their chance, first as Remainers for three years, then as Brexitiers for the last six months, and have completely blown it.

    Perhaps we should give Labour a chance to bring Brexit (at long last) to a conclusion, while also making a start on fixing the massive damage that previous Tory administrations (including the Tory-lite one that was New Labour) has done to this country for the past few decades.
