Brexit Party Leading Polls, UCP Wins In Canada

A very startling turn of events, and I first ran into it in this video (17 minutes).

It seems that The Brexit Party now TOPS the most recent poll for European Elections. Ahead of Labor. Ahead of Conservatives.

Then, in Canada, the people in Alberta didn’t buy into the smear campaign and have told NDP to knock it off via electing UCP ( United Conservatives with 63 seats, NDP 24) so change coming to Canada too. Watch for Alberta to “have words” with Ottawa.

Not a good week for the Globalists and Socialists ;-)

I find it amusing that “Houndog” had to get RT clips to show off the Brexit Party win. Guess Sky and The BBC were not pushing it much ;-)

I’d add some links / quotes from text sources (news papers et. al.) but it’s after 4 AM, I’ve been working all night on some tech stuff after most of a week of graphs and temperature data, and I just need to get this up and go get some sleep… So maybe tomorrow I’ll add some in comments.

    Well there has been no mention on the BBC or the A BC of Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party leading any polls.

    Perhaps it does not fir the script set down by the PC brigade ?

    Populist, anti-mass migration, and Eurosceptic political parties have been predicted to make advances in the next European Parliament, according to an analysis of polling released by the parliament itself.

    The Brexit Party, which only officially launched last weekend has already surged past the two main legacy parties in a new poll and is now rated as the lead party in voting intentions for the May European Union elections.

    The election in Alberta was a bit more nuanced than that. The NDP (we might as well call them Democratic Socialists) made a deal with the Devil (Trudeau) who didn’t come through with his part (providing pipelines to export oil and save the Alberta economy). Except that he made it easy for the UCP, just by being a GEB.

    The last election in BC was pretty much a tie, but it went to the NDP because the Green Party supported them to form a coalition where one person has most of the power (Andrew Weaver, who was a CAGW Climate Science guy before running for office). Their position is something like “We don’t need no stinkin’ oil”.

    And BC elected a Green to Ottawa too, Elizabeth May, who wrote the book “Global Warming For Dummies”. Really!

    But the election to watch now is in PEI on Tuesday. Some say the Green Party could win it. Along with that election comes a question on electoral reform, a recurrent theme in Canada. “voters will be asked to decide whether the province should move from the traditional first-past-the-post voting system to mixed member proportional representation”. You really don’t want to know what that is, but the too short answer is that instead of voting for people you vote for parties. Sounds like a terrible idea to me. They keep having this question on the ballot, and they will keep putting it there until they get the answer they want.

    Politics is a very interesting game to watch — from a distance.

    The danger is that other, less publicised “Brexit parties” – UKIP (in particular), Tallbloke’s “Sovereign”, Anne-Marie Waters’ “For Britain” etc . – will also insist on standing as many candidates as *they* can, and split the Brexit vote on the day. If we can’t present a united front on this issue of all issues, we don’t deserve to run our own country, dammit.

    And I don’t entirely trust Farage, either, after his clap hands, “Job done!” disappearance following the 2016 vote. But, if only for his skill at generating publicity, we have to vote for him.

  6. g says:

    Finally my countrymen are pi**ed. Farage says the British people are lions led by donkeys.

    That is a sentiment that resonates with me . How much betrayal can British voters stand?

    Meanwhile here in the USA the GOP is still betraying their voters by failing to support Trump’s agenda.

  7. YMMV says:

    “after an 11-day Easter break” (peace and quiet!) they are back at each other over Brexit.
    Most of the noise is about replacing May (not going to happen), which wouldn’t help anyway. What they need to do is replace all the MPs. They have rejected the deal so far, so chances are that the same deal will get the same rejection, and there isn’t going to be another deal.

    “It is excluded that we renegotiate or reopen the withdrawal agreement because this is the best solution possible” says the EU.

    It’s going to be a long time until Halloween. I was expecting that they would back-burner it until the last moment again.

    Modest Hail-Mary proposal. Give Northern Ireland back to the Republic of Ireland. Everything England has done to Ireland and the Irish since Henry II has been shameful and worse.

    Regarding the UCP victory, this is the best analysis I have found:

    I liked this part; it has applicability in many other places too:

    Competence was also key in this election. The late Stan Waters, a Canadian war hero commended for bravery at the Battle of Anzio in the Second World War and Alberta’s first democratically selected senator, was once asked what he feared most as a soldier. His unexpected reply was “incompetence in high places.”

    Tallbloke is standing as an Independent, I don’t know why he hasn’t joined the Breixt Party.

  12. Bill in Oz says:

    @Beth.. Clive Palmer, Cory Bernardi & Pauline Hanson ?
    And in former more glorious days Barnaby Joyce ?

    Three of them have had us all laughing hard at them recently.
    Leaving Cory Bernardi..

  13. beththeserf says:

    Yes, Cory Bernadi, Australian Conservatives, sensible policies in energy, education, limited guvuhmint, and national security..

    Tidbits from history, I love it when they are ironic.

    The EU began life as the European Steel and Coal Community in 1951. A proposal by French foreign minister Robert Schuman to create a single market for the production of steel and coal in France, Germany and any other country that wished to participate elicited positive responses from Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The community became the European Common Market in 1958 and the European Union of today.
