Hopefully it will shut down discussion about having another referendum but I am beginning to wonder if we shouldnt all demand one (-;
I was really wondering about that. I haven't really been following news media as much on this story as I should. Chatter from the (American) peanut galleries that I frequent are strongly biased against Brexit so they tend to discuss news through that filter and I really don't have a good sense of where the British people stand on the issue. If these reports of support for Farage's brand new party are correct, it would appear that "Leave" is still too significant to ignore.

Is Ann Widdecombe anyone of significance in UK politics?
Tory stalwart Ann Widdecombe hopes to give 'cloth ear' MPs a bloody nose after she sensationally defected to Nigel Farage's Brexit Party today and said her new leader should be on a pedestal with Margaret Thatcher.

The former minister, who was a Tory member for 55 years and appeared on Strictly in 2010, has put retirement on hold because she believes Theresa May and Parliament have betrayed the 17.4million who voted to leave the EU.

Paying tribute to the former UKIP leader's political record she said: 'Nigel Farage has been more successful than any politician other than Margaret Thatcher in my lifetime in getting his agenda through, and he's done this from outside Westminster'.

She has pledged to 'campaign vigorously' for the Brexit Party in the upcoming European elections in May and will stand against Boris Johnson's sister Rachel and Jacob Rees-Mogg's sister Annunziata in the South West.

She told Good Morning Britain: 'I'm on a mission. We need to send a seismic shock to both parties that the electorate have had enough. Just get it done. The cloth ears in Parliament are not hearing us. If we win an overwhelming majority this will send a shock wave and MPs will have to listen. This is not a protest vote, far from it. It is a means of trying to galvanise Westminster into getting this issue dealt with'.

The 71-year-old has joined Mr Farage's new party to try to get Britain out of the EU - and hopes that more big names will defect from the Tories and Labour.

Anne Widdecombe was a big name in a previous Tory parliament. She 'tells it like it is' and I believe this was why she didnt get further up the food chain at that time.
I think she was still a minister when she went on a TV programme called 'Srictly Come Dancing' where she was able to project her true personality more openly and everybody loved her ( apparently ..... I have not had a TV for 10 years )

Her speaking out like this will really hurt the incumbent minority Tory Party and adds energy to my speculation regarding a seismic shock at the next general election.

Londoners and 'foreigners' would seem to be the populations in favour of being told what to do by unaccountable Brussels bureaucrats.
I would be happy for Scotland and Wales to take themselves off and pay their own way and London is not really representative of a stable English community. Its full of foreigners and young people chasing the elusive fast buck. Good luck to em all but they can just as easily chase the dollar in a European capital.

But what will happen to property prices they all ask in horror ? ............
Heh, perhaps they would become affordable to regular folk who want to work and live in London. They might even have children and populate the schools (-:

I was out of town for a business conference last week. There was a lot of news related to May, Farage, Brexit and such. Events were happening fast. Unfortunately I wasn't able to keep up with it here.

As it stands now, May is stepping down and Farage's Brexit party looks to win big in the EU election. An effort to put a second referendum forward appears to have been killed.

...
The Tories will choose a new Prime Minister by July.

Boris Johnson is the front runner, far and away.
...
An EU official said the “almost consensus analysis” was that May would be replaced by a hard Brexiter. “Mentally we have to prepare for a different breed on the other side of the table,” one senior official said. “The Tory party will be in survival mode and in order to survive it will have to regain credibility as the party of Brexit.”
