I'm not a fan of Farage setting up his Brexit party for this. It's just going to split the UKIP/Brexit vote. Yeah it's a PR system so it's not the end of the world but you know if Labour gets the most votes even if UKIP and Brexit party combined are much larger the media and remoaners will be crowing about the mandate for a 2nd referendum at that point.Jon Stone is basically Labour's press department. Yeah I'm also excited to fuck over the major parties in the EU elections.
Hopefully the rise of the antiglobalist eurosceptic right across Europe will be reflected in the EU parliamentary elections and the new parliament will basically kick us out. That or someone like Italy will decide to fuck with the EU by blocking any more extensions.What I'm not excited about is that we'll be in the same position on halloween or the 17th of October EU summit. This extension isn't long enough for anything major to happen (like a leadership contest or general election), but it's long enough to kill off no deal for 6 months.
