Brexit Party Surges In UK Polls; Tories & Labour Dropping Bigly
Nigel Farage is back, as the U.K. prepares to finally start winning. Since the faux “conservative” party in the U.K. has failed to follow through with a proper Brexit, Farage has started another new party, the Brexit Party, and they are now leading in the polls.
Though barely a few months old, the Brexit Party has more support than the Conservative and Labour parties combined.
We are the 17.4 million and we deserve to be heard.

The elections for European Parliament take place between May 23rd and 29th, and each country gets an allotment of representatives to send to the European Union.
Senior Tory and Labour politicians have issued frantic calls to their voters to back them in next week’s European elections after a new poll showed support for Nigel Farage’s Brexit party had soared to a level higher than for the two main parties put together.
The Opinium survey for the Observerplaces the Brexit party on 34%, when people were asked how they intended to vote on 23 May, with Labour slipping to 21% and the Conservatives collapsing to just 11%. Ominously for Theresa May, support for the Tories at the European elections is now less than a third of that for Farage’s party, and below that for the Liberal Democrats, who are on 12%.
The poll suggests the Brexit party, launched only last month, is now on course for a thumping victory that Farage will, MPs fear, use to back his argument that the UK must leave the EU immediately without a deal.
There were signs of mounting panic and recriminations in both Tory and Labour ranks as their MPs attempted belatedly to mount “stop Farage” operations.
May was accused by senior Conservatives of “fuelling populism” with her indecision over the Brexit issue, while Labour politicians urged their backers to come out and vote despite the party’s mixed messages on Europe, which are depressing its support.
Richard Corbett, Labour’s leader in the European parliament, said: “Labour voters must turn out and vote to stop a far-right extremist claiming he represents Britain.”
Writing for the Observer online, the former prime minister Tony Blair says it is vital that Labour supporters go to the polls, even if they choose a party more clearly in favour of Remain than Labour.
“This is not a vote to choose a prime minister or a government,” Blair says. “It is a vote for the Farage Brexit; or against it.”
Could this be a bellwether for the next UK Parliament election?
Farage has been making what media appearances he can, as mainstream news does their best to ignore and attack him and his new party. Listen as radio personality Julia Hartley-Brewer continually tries to bait him into saying the wrong thing and tries to redirect the discussion, but Farage doesn’t fall for it and sets the conversation back on track multiple times. They even had to pick a still shot of him looking angry.
Can’t help but notice this sounds like a certain other political leader who was maligned by the media and attacked by faux conservatives, only to hold his ground and ended up winning.
Speaking of which, President Trump will be traveling to the UK in June. The UK government previously forbade Trump and Farage from meeting the last time Trump visited.
