Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage delivered a brilliant reply after he was asked when Brexit would “end” by Piers Morgan. It comes as candidates who have put themselves forward for the Conservative Party leadership have been quizzed over whether they would be willing to pull the UK out of the EU without a deal at the end of October. Mr Farage said: “I tell you where it will end, October 31 is the big looming date, as was March 29.

“That is going to be in people’s brains as the date we must absolutely leave the European Union.
“I saw Boris yesterday saying ‘oh if I am leader we are leaving on October 31’.
“I tell you what if Boris wins and he marches his troops to the top of the hill with the expectation we are leaving on October 31, and then we don’t and march back down again.
“I think in those circumstances, I think in a future general election, the Brexit Party would produce a result, even more stunning than it did in the European elections.”
He finished by saying: “It really is in their hands.”
It really is in their hands
Mr Farage was also asked if he was tasked with the job, how the UK can deliver Brexit “given the way Parliament is structured”.
He replied: “I think you had a clue what a brand new party, that was six weeks old, won the Elections getting 50 percent more votes than any other party. If I could do that with the Brexit Party in six weeks, it shows you what the potential is.
“There is no question that if we are going to leave on October 31, we need a leader who has got vision.
“A leader that says ‘the withdrawal agreement was rubbish, we are getting rid of it’, giving notice to Brussels, taking control of the negotiations, and making it clear, we are leaving on whatever terms they may be on October 31.
CRIMSON TAZVINZWA//’Brexit!’ – if it were a foolishly memorised moment/event of utter stupidity bordering on lunacy, it would be this one for me to be fair; it’s not ‘how high you can jump’/ except something else just as ordinary as it can be; thinking about it, even amoeba brains can easily cope with – given their capacity.
The story. Years ago when I was little – little over eleven; while my uncle Andrew and I were tending our grandfather’s cattle; he came up with a little quiz, a puzzle which he still tags genius to this day.
“Surely you cannot stand with your feet on the ground while hands in the air?” He queried me. Of course, as he said this, he points his head on the dirt bobbing … A prompt. A challenge?
“What? I exclaimed.
Do you see? I consider myself physically fit while nimble; agile and flexible, and have bespoke yoga routines at my place. And this little challenge was just but a spring walk in the park.
To demonstrate the feat I went with my hands ‘tot-like’ straight aimed for the ground with my legs shooting gracelessly into the air.
Seeing this Andrew broke into a guffaw; uncontrollable feats of laughter and shouting;
“I said you cannot stand on your feet not hands. You ‘doughnut’!
We all then laughed at my expense.
Farewell to the worst prime minister bar none – until the next one – Polly Toynbee
The moral of the little sorry story …
US President Donald Trump asked Prime Minister May if she were confident and capable of negotiating a good deal for the United Kingdom; the president even went as far as offering some assist … reports say – Trump confirmed she declined the American leader at his offer; claiming outlandishly the process was in solid, good hands.’
In a scathing assessment thereafter, the US President said the Brexit process “should have gone smoothly” and that he hates to see Britain being “ripped apart”, as attempts by MPs to break the impasse ahead of the 29 March resulted in rescheduling/delay Article 50 of The Lisbon Treaty.
“I’m surprised at how badly it’s all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation, but I gave the Prime Minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful,” he told reporters during a White House press conference.
“[Theresa May] didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean she’s got to do what she’s got to do, but I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner frankly.”
President Trump added that he did not believe a second referendum on whether to leave or remain in the EU was “possible” and that it would leave those who voted for Brexit in 2016 aggrieved.
“I hate to see everything being ripped apart right now,” he added.
“I don’t think another vote would be possible because it would be very unfair to the people that won. They’d say ‘what do you mean you’re going to take another vote?’, so that would be tough.
“But I thought [Brexit] would happen, it did happen and both sides are very, very cemented in so it’s a tough situation, it’s a shame, frankly it’s a shame.
“There was no reason for that to happen, they could have had the vote and it should have gone smoothly, unfortunately it didn’t.”
The commander-in-chief went on to suggest that an extension to Article 50 (already happened) was likely, adding: “Well I think they’re going to have to do something.
“Because right now they are in the midst of a very short period of time, the end of the month and they’re not going to be able to do that”.
Apparently, Trump was right all along; which tempts me to ask him if he thinks the ‘real deal’ happens during Prime Minister Theresa May’s Premiership tenure.
Actually, it would have been this ‘HOZA Friday’ – 29 March 2019 when Britain would have safely landed in BREXITland via autopilot.
It is not Theresa May’s fault. Not her fault. Maybe. Remember, we’ve had some stinkers for Prime Ministers in the past, but Mrs May isn’t rank and file, not one of them.
The honourable lady has seen a fair share of political adversity thanks to ‘Frankenstein Monster’ of Brexit – in its perpetual morphosis; swapping the European Union for a seat on Air Oblivion. It is jarring.
I’m not Tory but from word go I have rooted for the PM to succeed; there is this niggling need to reward her with a benefit of a doubt but events in Commons in the last couple days don’t accommodate that.
Don’t ignore the facts, especially the ugly ones. But do understand it’s your game. You get to write the rules ~~~ SONIA SIMONE
Time and effort have been squandered by political bickering; and the PM’s fretful frequent numerous trips to Brussels in a space of no time at all; quite unusual travel behaviour for a politician anyways – especially the leader of a country. The trips meant to reassure the British public that Brexit project is in progress and well, but ended up achieving the opposite. Frustration instead; despite the effort. There is dead inertia.
And Alas! Brexit is delayed.
“Brexit is like giving up a three-course meal… for the promise of a packet of crisps in the future.”
But the Prime Minister strikes me as someone who knows something that the eighty-plus million Britons, lawmakers included cannot put a finger on except that it is in the neighbourhood of existential pickles. The problem is she cannot say what it is; cannot explain or describe it.
That’s the only problem.
I don’t see Theresa May as a schemer or anything; she is just trying to do what is right in her mind in the face of pollitical ignorance and naivete.
