NIGEL Farage will be smiling today, as his newly launched Brexit Party whooped Theresa May’s ass and entered the Euro Election polls with a whopping 27% vote share, with May’s Tories on just 15%.
UKIP also fared pretty badly getting just 7%, but the party is still set to do well in the upcoming local election on May 2nd.
Many Brexit voters are planning to vote UKIP in the locals and back Farage in the European Elections Mrs May’s Brexit Betrayal has thrust upon us.

The results mean Farage is likely to WIN the European Elections, in a stunning return to politics.
Politicalite’s Niall McCrae said: “The Brexit Party threatens to wipe out the Tories in the EU elections, should they happen (Dan Hannan could be the lone Conservative survivor in Brussels).
“This media-slick operation, closely linked to the Leave Means Leave campaign, promises household names as candidates (Piers Morgan? Julia Hartley-Brewer? Tim Martin?).”
“Writing in the Sunday Express, Farage was keen to distance his new party from his old gang. UKIP, he claimed, has recruited a thuggish, criminal element, but the Brexit Party will be ‘intolerant of intolerance’ (that absurd mantra of our time).”
“The candidacy of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s sister, an upper-class Tory defector, is symbolic. Unlike UKIP, the Brexit Party doesn’t want coarse commoners. One problem is that prioritising a spotless profile over authenticity will fill the ranks with bland, politically-neutered types who are allowed to talk about Brexit but nothing else. Secondly, pandering to polite society could be futile: the most carefully screened and disciplined party will not deter Buzzfeed, the Guardian, Vice News and other cultural Marxist media from poring over the Facebook and Twitter histories of every candidate.’
“This Scrutony (pardon the pun) will surely result in accusations of Islamophobia and immediate suspensions. In the face of hysterical left-wing witch-hunts, Farage will be timid where Batten is strong. ”
