The leader of the 2016 referendum campaign for Great Britain to exit from the European Union told Big League Politics that the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Theresa M. May’s failure to establish a steady and sincere program to leave the EU will cost her Conservative Party control of Parliament.
“She does not believe in Brexit herself, only stating that she will carry out the will of the people,” said Nigel P. Farage, who was the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, until hs stepped away after June 23, 2016 vote that was a harbinger of the victory of President Donald J. Trump less than six months later.
Farage, a supporter of the president said, “Trump believes in the nation-state and thought Brexit was the smart thing to do.”
Many people are equating BREXIT, and what is going on in Great Britain, with what is happening in the U.S. People want their country back!

Farage said UKIP may not survive as a party after its Brexit victory and its voters are up for grabs.
“In the minds of the public, UKIP had done its job and it was the return to politics as usual,” he said. “Whilst UKIP had campaigned on a broad range of issues, this was not sufficient to win a large vote share in the 2017 general election.”
In the fight for the Brexit and UKIP voters May is losing, he said.
May vocally supports Brexit, but is unwilling to be strong in finalizing the move to separate from the EU, he said.
“As the public becomes more supportive of Brexit there are many within our political elite who wish to disrupt or delay it,” Farage said.
Farage said the prime minister’s uneven approach to Brexit gives an opening for the Labour Party.
“May might stay, she might not,” he said. “My view is that every day she is in office it brings hard left socialist Jeremy Corbyn closer to power.”
Corbyn is far more left wing than his fellow Labour Party members of parliament, but he has the support of the party’s activists, intellectuals and the leadership of organized labor.

“What surprised commentators were the number of UKIP voters who switched to Labour,” he said.
“Jeremy Corbyn promised Brexit in his manifesto but since retreated from that position,” Farage said.
“It is impossible to predict what will happen if, as I suspect, we will leave the European Union in name only, tied into many years of transitional arrangements,” he said.
Farage said he was not surprised when the European Union disrespected the United Kingdom in the midst of the Brexit negotiations by taking away the European City of Culture designation from the English city of Leeds in 2023.
“They will never forgive us,” he said.
Capitals of Culture is a sought-after title for a city, who benefit from an organized public relations campaign and special access to art, helping to promote the local economy through tourism and urban renewal.
“We are hugely frustrated by the European Commission’s apparent proposal to remove the opportunity for a UK city to host the European Capital of Culture title in 2023,” said the city’s leadership in a press release after the EU’s decision.
“This announcement has been made after cities have submitted their80-page bids and just four working days before the city was due to meet with the panel is shocking,” the city said.
A spokesperson for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport said, “We disagree with the European Commission’s stance and are deeply disappointed that it has waited until after UK cities have submitted their final bids before communicating this new position to us.”
‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe
The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.
The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.
Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.
There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.
This is the moment

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.
Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.
MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
