While Corbyn couldn’t tell viewers of the debate last night how he’d vote in Labour’s proposed second referendum, even more Brexit confusion has been sparked this morning after Dawn Butler contradicted Corbyn’s claimed Brexit t…
When Guido reported on the dying days of the People’s Vote campaign yesterday, he overlooked another earth shattering moment that will strike at the very heart of every remainer in the country: Femi Oluwole has quit the People’s Vote campaign. A nation mourns… Whilst it was thought two sub-campaign groups – For Our Future’s Sake […]
The Brexit Party has sent out a briefing pack to its prospective parliamentary candidates, clearly written after the general election was legislated for on December 12.

Channel 4 have received photographic evidence of what Guido confirmed on Friday – CCHQ have updated their clock to avoid embarrassment. CCHQ clock update: clock has been reprogrammed to show how long it’s been since we should have left if Remain MPs hadn’t prevented us https://t.co/2SEVtIscpj pic.twitter.com/Yga8f1c4qP — Guido Fawkes (@GuidoFawkes) November 1, 2019 Via […]
The Brexit Party candidate for Dudley South, Paul Brothwood, has quit the party and endorsed the local Conservative MP Mike Wood. The ex-UKIP councillor says he fears votes for the Brexit Party could help to elect a Labour-Lib Dem government. Since Nigel Farage threatened to stand in 600 seats nationally Brexit Party support as polled […]
Political titan Antoinette Sandbach uses her maiden name in public life, choosing not to use her married name – Antoinette Sherratt. There’s nothing unusual in this, bar the fact she continues to use her maiden name in her capacity as company director of Hafodunos Farms Ltd. Hafodunos Farms Ltd received £23,588.02 in EU subsidies for […]
On the day we were meant to leave the EU, new figures published by the ONS show Britain’s gross contributions to the EU have increased to a whopping £398 million-per-week. When excluding VAT & GNI adjustments, this is up by 8.5% from 2017 to 2018 (exclude VAT & GNI adjustments). Boris and Cummings have their […]

Taking to his usual high-quality, intellectual Tweeting this morning, David Lammy moaned: The French President has more influence over the length of our extension than the British Prime Minister. Brexit is not taking back control, it’s giving it away. — David Lammy (@DavidLammy) October 24, 2019 The very same David Lammy who voted for the […]

Chris Davies MEP has been continuing the trend of his sweary ‘bollocks to Brexit’ Lib Dem MEP group, this time in an email in which he describes a group as “a bunch of lying duplicitous b*astards that spout greenwash”. To save the representative’s face, we’ve elected to keep schtum on who he was talking about… […]
Telly Guido tried to have a friendly chat with shouty Steve Bray, the ‘Stop Brexit’ man who interrupts every interview known to man. The story was going to be that the man is such an irritating staple outside Westminster he now has his own Uber pick up location. Then Steve started shouting. Guido decided that […]
One of the Government’s digital ‘Get Ready for Brexit’ adverts has had an unfortunate digital error near City Hall in London. A pop-up reads that the program has “stopped working”. Perhaps this is why the Government want …
Today will be the new crunch moment in the Brexit saga, with the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) starting its journey through Parliament. The Government thinks it has the votes to pass the WAB at second reading, meaning we can expect a quasi-meaningful vote at 7pm tonight with the bill’s second reading. Number 10 are also […]

The ‘Cleverer than Thou’ former Chancellor toured Television and Radio studios during the Tory leadership election to lecture everyone about how much he understands EU politics. He earnestly told everyone who would listen that; a renegotiation was impossible, the backstop could not be removed, the EU would offer no concessions, and even that there would […]
Following Bercow’s ruling against the Government bringing forward another meaningful vote, Angela Eagle, bravely spoke against people being forced to vote “again and again and again on the same thing until it gets it right”, describing opposition to such a tactic as an “important defence of freedom” in relation to the Government’s latest desire to pass […]

In news that will seriously unsettle Twitter’s pompous raft of Remainer QCs, the body that regulates the legal profession issued new guidance today, urging barristers to avoid getting into “heated debates or arguments” on social media. The Bar Standards Board has now warned barristers that (even when using social media in a private capacity) they […]
New Polling commissioned by Global Britain has shown that if the DUP continue to not support Boris’s deal, English voters will be significantly less likely to support Northern Ireland staying in the UK. If the Brexit process is delayed again, the DUP will be losing English good will to keep Northern Ireland in the UK… […]

Despite Nigel’s continuing opposition for opposition’s sake, it seems his usually loyal followers are abandoning him in favour of Boris’s new deal. Last man in the bunker… A new Survation poll out this morning shows 67% of Brexit Party voters want the Commons to pass the deal, a little behind the 73% of leave voters […]

Guido has compiled a handy list of the over 100 MPs elected for the Labour Party in 2017 from Leave-voting constituencies. They all voted for a referendum to take place, then voted to activate Article 50, and then stood on a manifesto promising to deliver what their constituents voted for. Now many look set to […]
Iain Dale was forced to repeatedly correct Lib Dem MEPs’ Deputy Leader Luisa Porritt after she continuously got basic details about the new agreement wrong. It became increasingly clear that Porritt hadn’t even read the deal she was arguing against. Excruciating… It’s not the first time a Lib Dem has been taken apart in a […]

Aaron Banks’s Brexit campaign, Leave.EU, has declared its support for Boris’s new Brexit deal. The endorsement comes as Farage maintains he would rather have an extension than leaving on October 31 with the deal.

A rare political discussion on Newsnight last night, when a Labour MP – who voted against May’s deal three times; an ERGer – who voted against May’s deal three times; and a remain former-Tory MP who was expelled from the party by Boris; all sat in agreement, in anticipation of backing Boris’s new deal on […]

Nigel says “I’ll give him credit. I thought Theresa May’s deal was the worst deal in history, Boris’s achievements mean it’s only the second worst deal in history. It’s still, from the point of view of a Brexiteer, completely and utterly unacceptable” Well a lot of Brexiteers do find it acceptable… For clear evidence watch […]
