Brexiters fear European elections could create a rift between idiots and racists

The division of the most ardent Europhobes into 2 distinct parties has many worried that the potent combination that propelled the brexit vote, of closet white supremacists and dim nostalgics who aren’t keen on spicy food, is in peril. As explained Daily Mail columnists and best-selling author of ‘Everything Was Better Before’, Simon Williams.

“The people who just want to hurt ethnic minorities will be firmly support UKIP whereas Nigel Farage will sweep up the votes of fearful codgers who hope they can recreate their childhood in the few years before they shuffle off this mortal coil.

“The big fear is that these two parties will not be as potent as when they are combined. After all, UKIP is already suffering from the lack of dumb but well-meaning biddies to shove in front of the headcases who dream of ethnic cleansing. Like Tommy Robinson.

“As for the new Brexit Party, genteel retirees who are still resentful of having to learn the metric system may vote in large numbers, but they aren’t exactly energetic campaigners. Mainly because of their hips.

1. Both the "Leave" and "Remain" sides...

....run the risk of "People's Front of Judea" syndrome. Many parties campaigning for the same things, but arguing among themselves and splitting the vote.

3. This appears to be how it will play out for the Conservatives

This is incredibly petty and petulant, but that's Brexshitters for you. It appears that grassroots Tories and the OAP block vote will be moving to Farage's lot in the EU elections. Farage now has a tacit endorsement from the elected Conservative councilors of Derbyshire and I would expect him to gain a few explicit endorsements from some elected Conservatives as well.

Tories at Derbyshire County Council have declared they will not take part in the forthcoming European elections in protest over the fact Britain has not yet left the EU. They have also said they will not support party colleagues standing as MEP candidates.

Conservatives at the county council believe the election in May 'should not be happening' and will therefore withdraw their involvement in the campaign process - they are effectively going on strike.

Prime Minister Theresa May had wanted Britain to exit the EU before the May elections but a deadlock over her withdrawal deal means the official exit date has been delayed until after the polls.

Barry Lewis, who has led the Derbyshire authority since May 2017, said he had already informed party chairman Brandon Lewis of the decision, which followed overwhelming support from his colleagues.
