Nigel Farage has vowed to bring together prominent business people and academics to stand in the 2019 European Parliament elections as members of his new pro-Brexit party.

The former Ukip leader confirmed his Brexit Party will be contesting all 73 seats. His bombshell announcement comes amid both the Tories and Labour scrambling to find suitable candidates in time for the May 23 poll. Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Mr Farage said candidates would be drawn from “all walks of life” and a number would be household figures.

The Brexit champion added the party was selecting representatives from “all areas of the country” and many of them would hail from non-political backgrounds.

The former Ukip leader confirmed his Brexit Party will be contesting all 73 seats. His bombshell announcement comes amid both the Tories and Labour scrambling to find suitable candidates in time for the May 23 poll. Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Mr Farage said candidates would be drawn from “all walks of life” and a number would be household figures.

The Brexit champion added the party was selecting representatives from “all areas of the country” and many of them would hail from non-political backgrounds.

He said: “We will have a full slate of candidates featuring people from all walks of life, including business and academia, and all areas of the country.

“Many have never been party political before and some of them will have instant name recognition.”

His intervention comes just 24 hours after he said he would be running for re-election to the EU Parliament where he has vowed to fight to deliver the result of the 2016 referendum.

After the House of Commons voted to pass legislation to rule out a no deal Brexit this week, Mr Farage vowed to “fight our political classes again”.

The Brexiteer was fuming after the ruling was secured by a majority of just one vote, dealing another blow to Theresa May’s Government.

He wrote in a Twitter tirade: “How can a single vote in Parliament supersede the 1.3 million vote majority for Brexit?

“It is now clear we will have to fight our political classes again.

“I’m up for it.”

In a gloomy warning for Brexit advocates, Mr Farage said it now appeared “certain” the European Parliament elections “will happen” next month.

While he admitted he was “not happy” about it, he vowed to not stand by “after 25 years of endeavour watch British politicians roll us over”.

Writing for The Daily Telegraph, he explained his new party was “fully mobilised” and had begun “raising good sums of money”.

Mr Farage may have been buoyed by news of a YouGov poll published on Friday which stated a quarter of Leave voters would now back either the Brexit Party or Ukip.

Nigel Farage launches Brexit Party ahead of European elections

12 April 2019
BBC News


Nigel Farage: "No more Mr Nice Guy."

Ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage has launched his new Brexit Party, saying he wants a "democratic revolution" in UK politics.

Speaking in Coventry, he said May's expected European elections were the party's "first step" but its "first task" was to "change politics".

"I said that if I did come back into the political fray it would be no more Mr Nice Guy and I mean it," he said.

But UKIP dismissed the Brexit Party as a "vehicle" for Mr Farage.

The launch comes after Prime Minister Theresa May agreed a Brexit delay to 31 October with the EU, with the option of leaving earlier if her withdrawal agreement is approved by Parliament.

This means the UK is likely to have to hold European Parliament elections on 23 May.

Mr Farage said the Brexit Party had an "impressive list" of 70 candidates for the elections. Among those revealed at the launch was Annunziata Rees-Mogg, sister of leading Conservative Brexiteer MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Mr Farage said: "This party is not here just to fight the European elections... this party is not just to express our anger - 23 May is the first step of the Brexit Party. We will change politics for good."

He said he was "angry, but this is not a negative emotion, this is a positive emotion".

The party had already received £750,000 online over 10 days, he said, made up of small donations of up to £500.


Annunziata Rees-Mogg, sister of leading Conservative Brexiteer MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, was revealed as a Brexit Party candidate


Ms Rees-Mogg said she had stuck with the Conservatives "through thick and thin", but added: "We've got to rescue our democracy, we have got to show that the people of this country have a say in how we are run."

Who is Annunziata Rees-Mogg?

Annunziata Rees-Mogg joined the Conservative Party, at the age of five, in 1984. She says she canvassed for the party from the age of eight.

The sister of Conservative Brexiteer MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, Ms Rees-Mogg stood unsuccessfully as a Conservative candidate in the 2005 and 2010 general elections.

The freelance journalist has written for the Daily Telegraph, MoneyWeek and the European.


Earlier, Mr Farage told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "In terms of policy, there's no difference (to UKIP), but in terms of personnel there is a vast difference.

"UKIP did struggle to get enough good people into it but unfortunately what it's chosen to do is allow the far right to join it and take it over and I'm afraid the brand is now tarnished."

He promised the Brexit Party would be "deeply intolerant of all intolerance" and would represent a cross-section of society.


UKIP leader Gerard Batten said the Brexit Party was "just a vehicle" for Nigel Farage


UKIP leader Gerard Batten tweeted that Mr Farage's suggestion that there was no difference in policy between UKIP and the Brexit Party was "a lie".

He said: "UKIP has a manifesto and policies. Farage's party is just a vehicle for him."

He said the Brexit Party's "only purpose is to re-elect him (Mr Farage)" and was a "Tory/Establishment safety valve".

The Electoral Commission has issued European Parliamentary elections guidance for returning officers to advise them "on the rules should the elections go ahead" and to ensure they "have as much certainty as possible in developing contingency plans".

Support for Tories falls to its lowest in six years - but pro-Brexit parties see a surge in voters

Support for the Conservative Party has shrunk to its lowest level since 2013

New data shows Labour would win the most votes if a general election were held

Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party would score 8 per cent of the vote, poll claimed


By Henry Martin For Mailonline
13 April 2019

Support for the Conservative Party has sunk to its lowest level in six years - as pro-Brexit parties are seeing a surge in popularity, a new poll has revealed.

The Tories would only win 28 per cent of the vote if a general election were held tomorrow, with Labour earning 32 per cent of votes, according to a YouGov poll for The Times.

UKIP would take 6 per cent and Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party would win 8 per cent of the vote, the poll claimed, making the combined weight of the staunchly pro-Leave parties the third largest political force in the country.

Though the generally pro-Remain Liberal Democrats would score 11 per cent, and Change UK, formerly known as the Independent Group, would win 3 per cent, the data revealed, meaning the Europhilic parties combined match the hardline Eurosceptics on 14%.


The Tories would only win 28 per cent of the vote if a general election were held tomorrow, with Labour earning 32 per cent of votes


Only two thirds of Conservative voters from the 2017 general election said they would support the party again, and a little more than one third said they would vote for the Tories in European elections.

As many as 56 per cent of people who voted to leave the EU in 2016 say they would vote for Ukip or the Brexit Party, with only 18 per cent saying they would back the Conservatives.

In a potential European Parliament election, Labour would lead with 24 per cent, followed by the Conservatives on 16 per cent, the Brexit party on 15, UKIP on 14, the Lib Dems and Greens scoring 8 per cent each, and Change UK on 7 per cent, the poll claimed.

The data for the poll was taken from 1,843 British adults.

The research comes amid reports of a potential Conservative leadership bid from Boris Johnson - who is said to be willing to pick Amber Rudd as his Chancellor.

The former foreign secretary was said to be ‘wooing’ Miss Rudd in order to appeal beyond the Eurosceptic wing of the Tories.

But Work and Pensions Secretary Miss Rudd has said she cannot support Mr Johnson while he keeps the door open to a No Deal Brexit, according to reports.

The two newest forces in the data are the Independent Group, who want to campaign on a platform of seeking another referendum with the option to remain - and the Brexit Party, whose front-man Nigel Farage yesterday declared: 'We cannot have a second referendum until we’ve implemented the first!’

Mr Farage's party was predicted to score more than double Change UK in both a general election and European elections.

Yesterday he announced Jacob Rees-Mogg's sister Annunziata as his first star MEP candidate - after she quit the Tories after 35 years.

Mr Farage vowed to take votes from the 'tarnished' party he left in December and started a new war of words with successor Gerard Batten by claiming he lacks 'good people' and has allowed a 'take over' by the far right.

Coffee House

Inside the Brexit Party launch: Tory anger, Rees-Mogg and ‘Treason May’

John Connolly


Nigel Farage at the Brexit Party launch

John Connolly
12 April 2019
The Spectator

On Friday, in an inconspicuous metal finishing factory on an industrial estate in Coventry, Nigel Farage officially launched his new Brexit Party, and set out its strategy ahead of the European Parliament elections on 23 May.

The message of the day was clear: the people, especially Leave voters, have been let down by the Westminster establishment, and voting for the BrexitParty is the best way to show that you are angry, and willing to do something about it.

Kitted out in his customary Union Flag socks, Farage hit out at the way the Brexit negotiations had been conducted so far, describing it as a ‘wilful betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of this nation’. Much of his venom was reserved for politicians in Westminster, which – he claimed – his new party would ‘put the fear of God into’. He said career politicians didn’t believe that Britain was still a great country, and were overseeing its managed decline. At the moment, the people are ‘lions led by donkeys’.

It was clear today that the Brexit Party’s main messaging throughout the European elections will be about channelling the frustration voters feel about Brexit. But Farage also sought to make the party more than just about Britain leaving the EU. He said that the elections on 23 May were only the first step and that the party’s true aim was to cause a ‘revolution’ that would break apart the two party system. The party would eventually publish a manifesto and reveal policies, though none were put forward today.

As ever with Farage, there were the usual theatrics. He revealed that he had been to the bookies that morning and placed a £1,000 bet on the Brexit Party coming first in the upcoming elections (at 3/1). He also introduced the first roster of MEP candidates the party had selected to fight the election, which included businessman Richard Tice and Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the sister of Jacob. If any announcement was going to generate headlines, it’s that he’d managed to poach one of the Rees-Moggs away from their natural home in the Tory Party.

It was also a sign of the kind of voters the Brexit Party now wants to attract. Speaking to a number of people in the audience today, it was striking how many had long links to the Conservative Party. One member of the audience, Harry Harker, told Coffee House he had supported the Tories for 50 years, but was now sure he would vote for the Brexit party instead. One couple had been actively involved in their local associations many years ago, but had become disillusioned over the party’s stance on Europe. Others had been Conservative voters all their lives.

As you would expect, some also voted for Ukip in the last election, or supported the party in the past. Some had re-joined the Conservatives in 2016 as a result of the referendum, others left at the same time as Farage due to Ukip’s courtship of Tommy Robinson. Farage himself attempted to draw a clear between his new party and Ukip today, which he said was now associated with ‘thuggery’. The new Brexit Party supporters in general seemed to agree, and suggested more respectable parties like Farage’s would provide an outlet for the current anger felt toward politicians, without it boiling over into violence or support for extremists.

Uniting all the people at the event was their deep frustration and disillusionment with the current state of Westminster politics. The negotiations were described as a ‘fiasco’, with ‘rotten’ MPs ‘lying through their teeth.’ Theresa May was called ‘Treason May’ and attendees complained that MPs have ‘ruined the democratic system.’ These audience members were also motivated enough to do something about it: at least two people Coffee House spoke to had travelled several hours to attend the launch. As one prospective candidate put it: ‘it’s better than shouting at the TV.’

A large part of their anger was directed specifically at the Tory Party. There was a sense that May’s Withdrawal Agreement and extension of Article 50 had betrayed the last manifesto and taken Eurosceptic voters for granted. In many ways, this anger toward the Tories reveals the true aim of the Brexit party, at least until 23 May. Even if the party does not come first at the European elections as Nigel Farage predicts, it was essential to many people in the audience that they send a clear message to the Tories. Even those who said they would never vote for the party again, hoped their ballot box rebellion would force the next leader of the country to take Britain out of the EU.

Whether this will be effective or not will become clearer in the coming weeks. The party has a powerful message that is likely to resonate with voters who want to stick two fingers up at the two main parties. In 2014, Farage’s Ukip managed to harness this discontent to win the largest UK share of the vote in the EU elections. But the Brexit Party was only founded in January this year and so will be something of an unknown quantity to most voters. Farage has made much of the fact that his party has already raised £750,000 through small donations, and more than 1,000 people have applied to become MEP candidates. But outside of the political obsessives, it’s worth remembering that the Brexit Party is still relatively unknown – recent polling has suggested that only 6 per cent of the public support the party.

In many ways though it won’t matter whether it’s Ukip or Farage’s new party that manages to profit most from the Brexit discontent. For Eurosceptics, this election seems to be about sending a shockwave through the political system. And if the people I’ve spoken to today in any way reflect the rest of the country, it’s the Conservative Party that should be worried.

POLL POSITION Nigel Farage’s new Brexit party could WIN the European elections, poll suggests, as voters punish Tories for EU exit chaos

Fresh polling puts the top Brexiteer's new party ahead of Labour and the Tories on 27 per cent

NIGEL Farage's new Brexit party could WIN the European elections as voters punish the Tories for the ongoing chaos around Leaving the EU.

Fresh polling from YouGov puts the top Brexiteer's new party ahead of Labour and the Tories on 27 per cent.

Labour are on just 22 per cent, down several percentage points, and the Tories slumped down to 15. Ukip have had a boost to seven per cent too.

YouGov's Political Research Manager, Chris Curtis, said it was "entirely plausible" that Mr Farage's party could spark a huge upset.

He wrote in the Guardian today: "It is entirely plausible that we are facing another Farage-shaped upset at the ballot box.

"While there are more than five weeks of campaigning to go, I certainly wouldn't bet against him."

ROSS CLARK James Dyson is no Brexit hypocrite for moving HQ to Singapore, he knows world trade is Britain’s future — so suck it to ’em, Sir

The hysterical Remainers who took a smug pride in Dyson’s decision have fundamentally misread the opportunities that Brexit presents to us and the reason so many voted to leave

COMMENT
By Ross Clark
24th January 2019
The Sun

GIVEN that he employs 4,800 people in Britain, has invested his own money in a technological university and paid £185million in tax in 2017, you might think that Sir James Dyson was owed a bit of gratitude by our politicians.

Instead, he woke up yesterday to hear Lib Dem Layla Moran accuse him of “staggering hypocrisy” and Shadow Business Secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey condemn him for “short-termism”.


Sir James Dyson announced he's moving his company's HQ to Singapore and Remainers immediately accused him of Brexit hypocrisy - but they are wrong about what Brexit means for Britain

His crime was to announce on Tuesday that he is moving his company HQ to Singapore.

Given that Sir James argued for Britain to leave the EU, the news was like a red rag to a bull for frustrated Remainers.

Dyson, they claim, helped land Britain in the soup and is now fleeing the country.

UNASHAMED BELIEVER IN GLOBALISATION

But if you will excuse the pun, the charge against him really sucks. Dyson’s decision has nothing to do with Brexit and is the very opposite of short-term thinking.

Sir James has looked ahead and seen that his most rapidly-growing markets over the next few years are going to be in the Far East. This is especially true, he believes, with his latest venture: Driverless cars.

As for the charge of hypocrisy, it could only be made by someone who hasn’t bothered listening to the case which Sir James made for Brexit.

Far from wanting Britain to retreat into glorious isolation, he wants the UK to open its economy to the whole world, and believes the EU is frustrating this.

He has complained of the difficulty in hiring staff from outside the EU.

“At the moment, if we want to hire a foreign engineer, it takes four-and-a-half months to go through the Home Office procedure,” he said in 2016.

I wouldn’t be surprised if part of what lies behind his decision to relocate his global HQ is Corbyn’s threat to seize ten per cent of UK companies’ stock

Ross Clark On James Dyson Moving His HQ To Singapore
He has also been frustrated by the way that engineers trained at UK universities are forced to leave the country after they finish their studies, rather than take up jobs here.

Admittedly, those are both failings of the Home Office rather than strictly the EU, but Dyson has also been critical of excessive EU regulation — an opinion honed through sitting on EU committees.

While it is nice to be able to trade across the EU without paying tariffs, he has said, the EU forces us to charge sometimes punitive tariffs on goods we import from outside it.

He explained his vision for a post-Brexit Britain as one where our country becomes a little more like business-friendly Singapore, which has become the third wealthiest country on Earth in terms of GDP per capita.

Sir James, in other words, is an unashamed believer in the benefits of globalisation.

So why is it hypocritical that he is practising what he preaches and locating his global HQ where he believes it will be best-placed to take advantage of economic growth?

In fact, in campaigning for Brexit Sir James was in one way arguing against his own personal financial interest.

He owns farmland in Britain and knows he will lose subsidies paid under the absurd EU Common Agricultural Policy.


The inventor poses at the Dyson vacuum cleaner factory in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, which will stay on as the company's centre for research and development

It is hardly as if Dyson is withdrawing from Britain. The company’s research and development centre will remain in Wiltshire, as will its university.

He will continue to pay large amounts of tax here, and only two senior jobs will be relocated to Singapore.

None of the firm’s other thousands of British workers will be affected at all. Rather than bark at him, Labour and the Lib Dems ought to ask themselves: What is it that makes global companies choose where to locate their activities?

If they speak to Sir James, I am sure he will tell them the same as other entrepreneurs: That they appreciate low taxes, flexible labour laws and efficient regulation.

As things stand, Britain scores quite highly in these areas, which is why — contrary to Remainers’ scare stories — the economy remains healthy and we continue to attract overseas investment.

In its assessment of the global economy this week, the International Monetary Fund sees the UK this year as having the joint third-fastest growing economy in the G7, level with France and ahead of Germany and Italy.

Employment is at a record high, with 32.5million people in work. The unemployment rate, at four per cent, is lower than at any time since the early Seventies — and less than half the levels in France.

What’s more, earnings have risen in the past 12 months by 1.1 per cent in real terms — that is after adjusting for inflation.

But it would be a very different story if, God forbid, Jeremy Corbyn made it to Downing Street.

What does Rebecca Long-Bailey think would happen to investment in Britain if Labour did as it promised in its 2017 manifesto and jacked corporation tax up from 19 per cent to 26 per cent?

There would be far more companies fleeing to Singapore, where corporation tax rate is 17 per cent.

The hysterical Remainers who took a smug pride in Dyson’s decision yesterday have fundamentally misread the opportunities that Brexit presents to us, as well as the reason so many voted to leave.

It’s not that Leavers want to pull up the drawbridge and pursue small-minded protectionalist policies — it’s that they want to take Britain away from the confines of the EU and send her out to compete globally, unfettered by the regulations and red tape of the bloc.

Just as there was a shriek of petty outcry when it was announced the our new blue passports wouldn’t be made by a British firm, the naysayers are missing the point. We are now a global nation, competing for global customers. Those passports could be made by anyone, even the French.

Sir James Dyson hasn’t said as much, but I wouldn’t be surprised if part of what lies behind his decision to relocate his global HQ is Corbyn’s threat to seize ten per cent of UK companies’ stock in order to set up funds for workers.

GREY CORPORATE MEN NOT ENTREPRENEURS

I am all for employees owning a stake in the companies for which they work, but threatening to seize assets is just going to drive businesses away.

Remainers will point to polls showing that most senior business figures would rather remain in the EU.

But there is a big difference between grey corporate men and entrepreneurs such as Sir James Dyson, who have built businesses from scratch.

Britain has produced too few global companies such as Dyson in recent years, which grew from nothing in 1991 to an annual turnover of £4billlion and profits of £1billion in the past year.

The very least politicians can do is to listen to and respect the views of a man who has achieved this.

LOL, the Dyson Co. asked me to go to work for them a couple years ago ( on the new car thing )...I thought about it. Why have just the best in Britain when you can get the best in the world? ( lol, you should have seen my test scores - which I just did for fun, HaHa )

Ah...but being early retired is just too much fun.

Dyson got his first business break in Japan so I think they have a very positive view of doing business in, and from the "east", while still maintaining a British entrepreneurial spirit too.
